The beauty says she will not go down the path many other Hollywood women have had to endure.

"I'm never going to starve myself for a part... I don't want little girls to be like, 'Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I'm going to skip dinner'" she told the mag. "[I want my] body to look fit and strong - not thin and underfed."

The actress also opened up about her relationship with fellow actor Nicholas Hoult, best known for his role as Beast in "X-Men: First Class."
