'Hunger Games' star Jennifer Lawrence eats cheese steak and she's not afraid to admit it

jennifer-lawrence-elle.jpgAnyone else tired of gorgeous actresses talking about how much unhealthy food they eat? Too bad. 20-year-old Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence, star of the upcoming "Hunger Games" film, is in this month's Elle discussing her favorite way to embrace her feminine curves: cheese steak sandwiches.

On that red Oscar dress: "Fifteen minutes before, the guy doing my hair goes, 'If you can get a salad, get a salad.' I said, 'I'm getting a Philly cheesesteak.' I'm sure there's proof on a hotel bill somewhere."

On the training program she endured for "X-Men": "I knew that if I was going to be naked in front of the world, I wanted to look like a woman and not a prepubescent 13-year-old boy. I'm so sick of people thinking that's what we're supposed to look like."

On tough older brothers: "Being the youngest and the only girl, I think everyone was so worried about me being a brat that they went in the exact opposite direction of treating me like Cinderella. I'd slap my brother on the arm, and he'd throw me down the stairs. I was always like, 'Can we talk about excessive force, please?'"

On star treatment: "When you're on set, everybody's like, 'Oh, do you need water? Here's 45 bottles!' It's really bizarre. I'm still getting used to it. I'm still in wonderland."
