Glamour’s April cover features actress Jennifer Lawrence (who stars as Hunger Games‘ heroine Katniss Everdeen), in a very, very busty outfit. I’m a little grossed out by this. Yes, I know that Lawrence is of age, but she is playing a character who is 16 years old. Do we really need her this overtly sexualized?

Ew.
