Actress Jennifer Lawrence, star of films like American Hustle and Joy, revealed a 'humiliating' and 'degrading' incident, which took place in her formative years in Hollywood, when a female producer made her stand in a nude line-up only to body-shame her, reports People magazine. The Oscar-winning was speaking at the Elle's Women in Hollywood event. She said: "A female producer had me do a nude line-up with about five women who were much, much, thinner than me. We are stood side-by-side with only tape on covering our privates.
