Joan Rivers has stepped up her war of words with Jennifer Lawrence after the actress took aim at TV shows that promote an unhealthy body image.
The Hunger Games star targeted the comedienne's Fashion Police series in December, accusing the show of encouraging youngsters to criticize others over their appearance and insisting it should be illegal to call people fat on TV.
Rivers quickly responded, taking to her Twitter.com account to accuse the actress of "arrogance":
It’s funny how Jennifer Lawrence loved @E_FashionPolice during Awards Season when we were complimenting her every single week...— Joan Rivers (@Joan_Rivers) November 12, 2013
But now that she has a movie to promote, suddenly we’re picking on all those poor, helpless actors.— Joan Rivers (@Joan_Rivers) November 12, 2013
WAIT! It just dawned on me why Jennifer Lawrence fell on her way up to the stage to get her Oscar. She tripped over her own arrogance.— Joan Rivers (@Joan_Rivers) November 12, 2013
Now Rivers hit back at Lawrence again by claiming she is regularly seen in airbrushed photoshoots.
She tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "My New Year's resolution is (ensuring) Jennifer Lawrence grows up and realizes how lucky she is and calms down. I love that she's telling everyone how wrong it is to worry about retouching and body image, and meanwhile, she has been touched up more than a choir boy at the Vatican. Look at her posters. She doesn't have a nose, she has two holes. She just has to learn, don't talk if you're doing it."
