Then in October 2017, in the wake of the Weinstein scandal, Lawrence went a step further, revealing something very hurtful and personal. Speaking at Elle’s Women in Hollywood event, she told of a degrading “audition” process that she had been forced to undergo as an aspiring actress.
Lawrence spoke about trying to land a role in a film, which she did not name, early in her career. Its producers had asked her to slim down. “One girl before me had already been fired for not losing enough weight fast enough,” Lawrence revealed. But things got worse from there.
