Jennifer Lawrence is once again weighing in on Hollywood’s body image issues, this time calling for a “new normal.”

“I think we’ve gotten so used to underweight that when you are a normal weight it’s like, ‘Oh, my God, she’s curvy,’” Lawrence told Harper’s Bazaar magazine in a story published Thursday.

The Oscar winning star said she doesn’t believe she has the normal body size.

“I do Pilates every day. I eat, but I work out a lot more than a normal person,” she said.

“Everybody says, ‘We love that there is somebody with a normal body!’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t feel like I have a normal body.’”

Lawrence isn’t the only one criticizing the public’s view of women’s bodies; the comments came after a tough week for the fashion industry and Hollywood.

First, comedian Amy Schumer called out Glamour magazine earlier this week for calling her “plus-size” when she is between a size six and eight. (Plus size is usually larger than a size 16.)

Next, Gucci had one of its advertisements banned when it used a model that was deemed “unhealthily thin.”

And Victoria’s Secret model Erin Heatherton also recently told the public she was told to lose weight for her jobs.

Lawrence has always been outspoken about her body image. In a 2013 interview with the same magazine, she said she was hurt when someone told her to lose weight if she didn’t want to get fired.

In the interview Lawrence also commented on her October letter in fellow actress Lena Dunham’s newsletter about equal pay in Hollywood, which discussed how she made less money than her male co-stars in American Hustle.
