In a new preview, the 23-year-old actress opens up about media scrutiny when it comes to body image and influencing the younger generation.

So all of a sudden being funny is making fun of a girl that’s wearing an ugly dress.”
She added, “If we’re regulating cigarettes and sex and cuss words, because of the effect it has on our younger generation, why aren’t we regulating things like calling people fat?”
