Every time Jennifer Lawrence opens up her mouth, we love her more. Like that time she said she got drunk for her Vogue interview, and that time she said, of her own Dior campaign, "Of course it’s Photoshop, people don’t look like that."

During a Q+A with Yahoo's Marissa Mayer, the Hunger Games actress elaborates further on her feelings about body image and the role the media plays -- particularly the show Fashion Police. "What are you going to do? Be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That's just dumb," she said in all her new pixie cut glory. "There are shows like The Fashion Police that are just showing these generations of young people to judge people based on all the wrong values and that it's okay to point at people and call them ugly or call them fat."

She also cleared some things up about what everyone's been talking about this week: her new 'do. First, she clarifies that Katniss will not be losing her signature braid. "No, this isn't how Katniss is going to look in next the movies, don't worry," she said. "I'm wearing a wig." And on why she made the cut, she says it was because her bob grew to that awkward length we all know so well: “I cut it earlier and it grew to like here and then it grew to that awkward gross length and I just kept putting it in a bun and I thought ‘I don’t want to do this’ so I just cut it off," adding, "It couldn't get any uglier, so."

While her candidness and goofiness are what make us love her the most, she says there are several cringe-worthy moments she wishes she could take back, which, ok, we probably would not have liked to fall on our face at the Oscars either, but that moment was AMAZING.

However, that restricting Dior number wasn't the only dress she's had trouble with recently--the other was her Hunger Games wedding dress. "I fell in both," she tells Mayer, when asked which was harder to walk in. "I think the wedding dress was a bit more uncomfortable."

We hope that fall makes it into the actual film as a nod to Lawrence's overall awesomeness.
