Jennifer Lawrence is not known for keeping quiet, so we weren't surprised when the star sat down with Barbara Walters and spoke her mind about the topic of red carpet critiques.

In a newly released clip, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" star chatted with the iconic journalist for the 'Most Fascinating People of 2013' TV special about previous comments which earned her Joan Rivers' wrath.

"You've criticized people who judge people on the red carpet," said Walters, referring Lawrence's critique of Rivers' E! show "Fashion Police." "You're very sensitive to that. Why?" JLaw replied:

"Because why is humiliating people funny? And I get it, and I do it too, we all do it. But I think when it comes to the media, the media needs to take responsibility for the effect that it has on our younger generation, on these girls that are watching these television shows and picking up how to talk and how to be cool. So then all of a sudden being funny is making fun of the girl that's wearing an ugly dress or making fun of the girl that's, you know. And the word fat. I just think it should be illegal to call somebody fat on TV. If we're regulating cigarettes and sex and cuss words because of the effect it has on our younger generation, why aren't we regulating things like calling people fat?"

Point to Jennifer.

The interview comes hot off the heels of a GIF making the rounds on the Internet which shows the Oscar-winner's slimmed-down body on a 2011 Flare cover that is naturally causing concern over the use of Photoshop.

Do you think calling people 'fat' on TV should be illegal?
