What do Jennifer Lawrence and Tyra Banks have in common? Both celebrities are sending a message to the media and to women to stop the "fat talk." And Jennifer is so adamant about it that she says calling someone fat on TV should be against the law, reported People magazine on Dec. 17.

Talking with Barbara Walters for her appearance on "The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013," Jennifer slammed people who make rude comments about women's weight.

"I just think it should be illegal to call somebody fat on TV," asserted Jennifer.

As for those, like Joan Rivers, who defend themselves by saying that their critiques are funny, Jennifer says that's not okay.

"Why is humiliating people funny?" she demanded.

On the same no-more-fat-talk team: Tyra Banks. The supermodel is part of a campaign designed to stop the fat talk. She's been tweeting messages trying to encourage women to feel good about their size.

Tyra has joined Special K to promote positive body image, reported PopSugar on Dec. 16. And her message is simple: "Shhhhh" that fat talk.

Tweeting on Dec. 18, Tyra affirmed "Got down & dirty w/ @PopSugar & @SpecialKUS 2 #FightFatTalk! Stomp UR high heels on negativity & share UR SHHHH!"

Or, as Special K tweeted, "Help us shhhhut down fat talk and shout for positivity."
