Jennifer Lawrence has been ''degraded and humiliated'' by Hollywood executives.
The 27-year-old actress has opened up about the shocking lows she was subjected to when beginning her career, including forced to strip and stand next to ''much, much thinner'' other women in an attempt for her to be shamed into losing weight.
Speaking about her career at Elle's 2017 Women in Hollywood bash, which took place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles, California, on Monday (16.10.17), the 'mother!' star said:
''When I was much younger and starting out, I was told by producers of a film to lose 15 pounds in two weeks.
''During this time a female producer had me do a nude line-up with about five women who were much, much, thinner than me. We are stood side-by-side with only tape on covering our privates.
''After that degrading and humiliating line-up, the female producer told me I should use the naked photos of myself as inspiration for my diet. ''He said he didn't know why everyone thought I was so fat, he thought I was 'perfectly f***able.' I let myself be treated a certain way because I felt I had to for my career.''
But the 'Passengers' actress believes ''every human'' should be treated with ''respect'' they deserve and shouldn't be forced to do things to please other people.
She explained: ''I'm still learning that I don't have to smile when a man makes me uncomfortable. Every human being should have the power to be treated with respect because they're human.'' —Contactmusic
