Jennifer Lawrence Perfectly Calls Out Sexist Critics Over Skin-Baring Dress Controversy

"The Hunger Games" may be over – but Jennifer Lawrence is still the "Girl on Fire."

The 27-year-old actress issued the best response after facing backlash for her choice of dress during a photo call for her latest film, "Red Sparrow."

Jennifer stepped out wearing a stunning low-cut black Versace dress with a thigh-high slit in London on Tuesday, where it was a chilly 48 degrees. Her revealing look despite the chilly temps caused a social media firestorm after users questioned if she was forced to look sexy.

The famously real and sharp-witted star quickly shut down critics with a powerful Facebook post.

"Wow. I don't really know where to get started on this," Jen responded in reference to the controversy. "This is not only utterly ridiculous, I am extremely offended. That Versace dress was fabulous, you think I'm going to cover that gorgeous dress up with a coat and a scarf? I was outside for 5 minutes. I would have stood in the snow for that dress because I love fashion and that was my choice," she continued.

Critics pointed out that her male co-stars looked comfortably bundled up in the England cold and argued that Jennifer's look was another example of Hollywood's sexism.
