Jennifer Lawrence may be raising some eyebrows after a controversial comment she made in the newest issue of Vanity Fair.

Revealing what she likes in a guy, she explained that she is wary of people who are super health-conscious with their eating habits. Or, to put it in her typical blunt, J. Law way, the Academy Award-winning actress says that gluten-free is “the new cool eating disorder, the ‘basically I just don’t eat carbs.’”

Of course, people have immediately assumed that the ‘Hunger Games’ star was throwing shade at Gwyneth Paltrow — ex-wife of her rumored current beau, Coldplay‘s Chris Martin. It’s no surprise that Paltrow, who runs the lifestyle site Goop, is a very healthy eater and just recently published a cookbook full of gluten-free recipes.

While cutting out a big category of food could possibly indicate that someone has an unhealthy relationship with eating, nutritionist Willow Jarosh tells Yahoo!, that doesn’t necessarily mean that someone has an eating disorder. It’s also important to note that many people have cut out gluten because they have Celiacs disease.

PopCrushers, what do you think of Jennifer Lawrence’s comments about going gluten-free? Do you agree with her?
