Jennifer Lawrence, Miley Cyrus Diss After MTV EMA's: 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' Star Defending Liam Hemsworth?

Jennifer Lawrence made it known that she's no fan of Miley Cyrus' controversial performances on the red carpet Monday night at the premiere of Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
The 23-year-old Oscar winning actress hit the red carpet for the second Hunger Games movie in London and though she didn't name Cyrus' name, she was asked about the example the Wrecking Ball singer is setting for younger women.
"It is a part of the entertainment industry that sells. Sex sells, and for some disgusting reason young sex sells even more," she told BBC's Newsnight when asked about Cyrus' recent behavior.
Perhaps she was taking sides with co-star Liam Hemsworth in his recent breakup with Cyrus, as she added more fuel to the fire.
"For some people, that's how they feel best, that's how they feel sexy," Lawrence said.
She also said that she will make "conscious decisions" to be a role model to young girls in movies.
"I think [Katniss Everdeen] a wonderful role model for young girls. I'm happy that they have a character like that," Lawrence said.
Cyrus causes controversy again on Sunday night after she performed at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Amsterdam. She twerked in a spacesuit with little people, sang in a revealing crotch-baring unitard and smoked a cigarette while on stage.
MTV decided to edit the footage of Cyrus smoking when the show was rebroadcasted in Stateside MTV.
"Last night MTV made a responsible decision and they executed it perfectly," PTC President and M.I.A. nemesis Tim Winter said. "It is unclear whether MTV's actions suggest stricter content guidelines for its TV-14 programming, or whether this is just an example of the old saying that 'even a broken clock is right twice each day.' We certainly hope it is the former. We applaud MTV for taking responsible actions to eliminate the drug use from its U.S. broadcast, and we urge them to make that a uniform policy for all of its programming."
