Jennifer Lawrence Would Rather Be Chubby Than “Look Like A Scarecrow”

“I don’t really diet or anything. I’m miserable when I’m dieting and I like the way I look. I’m really sick of all these actresses looking like birds… I’d rather look a little chubby on camera and look like a person in real life, than look great onscreen and look like a scarecrow in real life.”

Jennifer Lawrence in Canada’s Flare magazine on why she doesn’t diet. “Chubby” is the last word I would use to describe Jennifer, though. I love it when starlets have such a self-accepting body image. [E! Online] Keep reading »

Dear Wendy Updates: “Weight Issues” Responds

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Weighty Issues,” whose long-distance boyfriend told her that while she had a pretty face, her weight had started bothering him. “I have dropped some weight since I’ve first known him,” she wrote, “and currently wear S-M shirts, US size 8 in pants.” She went on to say: “I sometimes want to end the relationship because of this and because he doesn’t seem to be as attached as I am, but a part of me wants to see what happens next year.” Well, it’s now “next year,” so after the jump, find out what she decided to do.

Kate Winslet Was Called “Blubber” As A Kid

“[I was called "blubber"] between the ages of 8 and 11. Looking back on it, I really wasn’t that heavy. I was just stockier than the other sporty, whippy-looking kids. … You know, I will tell you that when I was heavy, people would say to me — and it was such a backhanded comment — they would say, ‘You’ve got such a beautiful face,’ in the way of, like, ‘Oh, isn’t it a shame that from the neck down you’re questionable.’”

Kate Winslet, Oscar winner and great beauty (IMHO), was no stranger to unkind comments, but she has a super-healthy attitude towards her body as an adult. Kate told Glamour she works out to Pilates DVDs, cooks chicken nearly every night and has no plans to get Botox or plastic surgery. How strangely refreshing! [Glamour] Keep reading »

Tacos The Downfall Of “Fat” Miss San Antonio Beauty Queen

Beauty pageants are brutal, yo: Pageant officials have stripped Domonique Ramirez, 17, of her Miss San Antonio beauty queen title and handed off the tiara to another girl because, among other violations, Ramirez reportedly got too fat from eating tacos.

The Miss Bexar County Organization stripped Ramirez of her crown recently for contract violations like failing to show up for events, taking modeling gigs not sanctioned by the pageant, and not writing thank you notes. Oh, sweetie, your job isn’t that hard. She sued and the pageant filed a countersuit, itemizing the list of contract violations, which included her failure to maintain the same weight she was when she won the pageant. Domonique Ramirez clocks in at 5’8″ and 129 lbs, the porker! While testifying on the stand over the past week, Ramirez said she was told by pageant officials she had to lose 13 lbs. Keep reading »

10 Perfectly Sexy Celebs Who Were Told To Slim Down

Kate Winslet
Kate Winslet inspired young thespians when she recently went back to the children’s theater company where she got her start. She reminded them that anything is possible if she could be such a success after being passed over for roles because she was “too fat.” You tell ‘em, Kate! [Telegraph]

Skinny Girl, Bethenny Frankel, Admits She Was A Diet And Exercise Addict

“I spent my entire life being obsessed with dieting … Bingeing and then fasting or starving. Forbidding everything. That’s how I used to be: up and down five pounds every single day, to the extremes. My metabolism was totally wrecked … I would go buy magazines just to see what the new diet was and rip it out.”

Bethenny Frankel on overcoming her diet and exercise addiction. I think it’s brave of her to admit this considering her line of work is creating dieting products and books for women. She talks about being sent to an obesity clinic by her mother when she was only eight years old. That stuff stays with you for life. It becomes ingrained so deeply in your unconscious that the thought patterns are difficult to break. I think many women (including myself) will find her story extremely relatable, especially those who were told they were fat or struggled with weight issues as children. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
