The Fat Girls Of Hollywood And Why We Need to Stop Labeling Them That Way

Attention! All body snarking must end at all levels. We stare at girls that walk past us in the mall and judge them. We judge other mothers, our own mothers, our sisters and ourselves. But, oh my goodness do we love to judge the Hollywood stars, celebs and musical performers most of all. A quick glance at the supermarket tabloid headlines will confirm that if you have any doubt. We would probably die from lack of information if we didn't see a weekly update on Jessica Simpson's weight loss or gain, whether Adele has been called fat by yet another smarmy designer or any of the other body snarking and totally unnecessary titles that are meant to either make us feel better about our jiggly butts or make us feel worse.

Several actresses have come forward to deal with their critics and to face their demons about their weight. Jennifer Lawrence, who starred in the Hunger Games announced in a recent magazine article that she is a "fat girl in Hollywood". What message does this slender actress send to her fans when she says this kind of thing? Even more importantly, what message does society send that we allow this to be the case? If an actress cannot meet the supposed ideals for beauty, can anyone?

Jennifer Love-Hewitt was taken to ask for being "fat" after an unflattering photo of her surfaced. Likewise with Tyra Banks, the former model turned reality television and talk show hostess. Tyra directly confronted the critics pointing out that the angle of the photo in question was not the best for anyone. She also pointed out that more than eighty percent of the women in the world have some cellulite and that it is frequently Photoshopped out for catalogs and magazines. Love-Hewitt dieted to a slightly smaller size before taking her stand on the issue of her weight.

Only a few actresses are actually obese by medical standards and those few are relegated to the comedy relief, the clownish side kick, the girl that never gets the guy she is pining for. It is possibly time to stop counting every cookie that Jessica Simpson eats or to wonder how many hours that stick thin women put in at the gym. It is time for us to stop body snarking on ourselves, our family, our friends and the celebrities that we love/hate/admire. It is time to find other things to make us happy because none of this obsession with the weight of others is helpful for anyone.

I hate how society still does body shaming. I especially hate it when my sister gets told on my our aunts that "She has a pretty face" just because she wears Large sized shirts.

Totally agree. It is disgusting how our society ogles over these things splashed across the supermarket tabloids and spread over the internet.
