Jennifer Lawrence has been seen flaunting her curves in a blue bikini on a Hawaii beach on Thanksgiving.
The 22-year-old actress' family joined her in Maui for the holiday. The 'Silver Linings Playbook" actress has been on the island to film scenes for the upcoming "Hunger Games" sequel, "Catching Fire."
Several reports are complimenting the photos featuring her "healthy body."
However, when "Hunger Games" arrived in theaters, Lawrence's figure raised the eyebrows of some critics, who believed the actress looked a little "too healthy" for a character struggling to eat.
Lawrence defended the criticism when she told Elle magazine in an interview in the December 2012 issue that losing weight is not a priority for her.
"In Hollywood, I'm obese. I'm considered a fat actress," Lawrence reportedly said. "I'm never going to starve myself for a part," Lawrence added.
Lawrence said she is comfortable in her own skin and has no intention of starving herself for the sake of her career.
"I eat like a caveman," she said. "I'll be the only actress who doesn't have anorexia rumors. I'm never going to starve myself for a part. I keep waiting for that one role to come along that scares me enough into dieting, and it just can't happen. I'm invincible."
"I don't want little girls to be like, 'Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I'm going to skip dinner," Lawrence said. "That's something I was really conscious of during training...I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong - not thin and underfed."
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. One of the world's leading fashion and beauty brands hired Lawrence to become the new face of the Miss Dior spring/summer 2013 bag campaign, following in the footsteps of Marion Cotillard and most recently Mila Kunis.
The ads will begin running in magazines starting March 2013, People reported. They also noted that perhaps as a nod to her newest modeling campaign, "The Hunger Games" actress has been seen choosing the designer for a number of red carpet appearances
"It's such a dream to represent an iconic brand that is synonymous with high fashion," the actress said in a statement. "I'm so excited to be working with the fashion house and wear the new creations by Raf Simons."
Lawrence has been on the big screen for a few years now, starring in "Winter's Bone" in 2010, "X-Men: First Class" a year later, and playing Katniss Everdeen in the 2012 film adaptation of the hit series "The Hunger Games."
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is currently being filmed and production is expected to be finished in December 2012.
"Silver Linings Playbook" arrived in theaters on Nov. 21. Lawrence stars alongside the film's lead Bradley Cooper, Robert DeNiro, Chris Tucker, Jacki Weaver and Julia Stiles.
