Jennifer Lawrence has previously confessed, "In Hollywood, I'm obese," and now, plus-size model Ashley Graham is speaking out about the industry's unrealistic body image standards. 

"Jennifer Lawrence is the media's poster girl for curves—she's tiny," the 27-year-old beauty tells's The Edit. "There needs to be more education in schools, because that's where eating disorders start. It's not just about being healthy; it's also about loving who you are." 

While Graham is quick to slam the media's perception of J.Law's "curvy" bod, it's safe to say the model is applauding the Oscar winner's mission to help young girls embrace their figures (Lawrence has previously said she will "never" starve herself for a part and wanted her Hunger Games' character Katniss to look "fit and strong").

"We need role models for young girls who say embrace your curves, who cares if you body isn't perfect?" Graham tells the publication. 

"I think that you can be healthy at any size and my goal is to educate women on that," she says. "It doesn't matter if you're a size 2 or 22, you can be healthy as long as you're taking care of your body, working out, telling yourself ‘I love you' instead of taking in the negativity of beauty standards." 

The brunette beauty also insists "curves are here to stay" but says it's still an important conversation to continue in our society. 

"I just think it should be illegal to call somebody fat on TV," the Hunger Games heroine previously told Barbara Walters in December 2013. "Because why is humiliating people funny?"
