Jennifer LawrenceCan someone give Jennifer Lawrence her own talk show already?

When recently questioned about her controversial peer Miley Cyrus, the Catching Fire star used her platform to speak out about the sexualization of young stars, but she also made it clear that she doesn't judge young women like Cyrus who choose to express themselves the way that they do:

"[The sexualization of young women] is a part of the entertainment industry that sells. Sex sells, and for some disgusting reason young sex sells even more. Everybody's got their own path and they've got their own way of finding themselves. For some people, that's how they feel best, that's how they feel sexy and that's how they want to perform... to each their own."

Lawrence also took a stand for more representation of larger bodies in film:

"We have the ability to control this image that young girls are going to be seeing Girls see enough of this body that we'll never be able to obtain... It's an amazing opportunity to rid ourselves of that in this industry. And also, I think, it's better to look strong and healthy. I feel like somebody like Kate Moss running at you with a bow and arrow wouldn't really be scary."

Seriously - can we give all the awards in the world out there to this woman?
