If this is what passes for Katniss' fatness, bring it on!
"Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence is causing quite the stir this week as steamy swimsuit photos of the actress surfaced online. The pictures were outtakes from a shoot she did as a little known indie star with men's magazine Esquire in 2010. However, the outtake photos have since been removed from the web.
In the outtakes, the "Hunger Games" star showed off her dewy and enviable figure in a previously unseen two-piece black bathing suit and a high fashion cut-out suit.
"I'm excited to be seen as sexy," she told the mag at the time. "But not slutty."
Though the initial Esquire article introduced Lawrence -- then star of the critically-acclaimed indie film "Winter's Bone" but not yet a "Hunger Games" player -- to the readers, the mag has now nominated the actress for Hottest Woman of 2012.
The nod comes amid "concern" over the actress's supposedly unrealistic "well-fed"/"big-boned" appearance in "The Hunger Games," a controversy Lawrence has taken in her trademark stride.
"This is hilarious. First, people say how so many actresses in Hollywood look anorexic, and now they are criticizing me for looking normal," she reportedly told a friend.
After these Esquire photos, it's obvious that what Lawrence has is anything but normal.
