Jennifer Lawrence is quite the breakout star!

The Oscar-nominated Winter's Bone actress is not only starring in the upcoming X-Men: First Class flick and Jodie Foster's The Beaver, but she also recently nabbed the highly coveted role of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games.

Phew! So is the pressure to be stick-thin in Hollywood finally starting to get to the 20-year old beauty...

Not at all!

"I don't really diet or anything," the confident Kentucky native tells the latest issue of FLARE magazine (out May 16) of her body. "I'm miserable when I'm dieting and I like the way I look. I'm really sick of all these actresses looking like birds... I'd rather look a little chubby on camera and look like a person in real life, than look great onscreen and look like a scarecrow in real life."

So how does she feel about her sudden sex-symbol status?

"It feels weird," she says. "But [it's] not bad at all."

As for her career, Lawrence says she already has her sights set on more than just acting.

"I'd like to direct at some point," she says. "But I don't know because 10 years ago I would have never imagined that I'd be here. So in 10 years from now, I might be running a rodeo."
