It’s not just the fashion world showing us only one size of women. No! Hollywood is doing the same! Only very, very thin actresses are in these big movies. Why? Why can’t we see diversity here as well? Kate Winslet has been called ‘curvy’ and she is a size 36-38 EU, 6-8 US. And Jennifer Hudson had lost so much weight, so she can be a ‘player’ in this ‘Hollywood game’. On Daily mail features an article on the matter: Actresses Rebel Wilson, 27 years old, and Melissa McCarthy, 43 years old, have joined forces!
The fuller figured actresses are said to have banded together to support each other and to try to maintain their weight despite the pressures from Hollywood. ‘Neither one of them is trying to lose weight and they’ve formed this little support group to keep each other from falling into the skinny Hollywood trap.’ Besides these 2 I can only think of Amber Riley and Christina Hendricks who are not a size zero in Hollywood.
Another thing is, why are plus size actresses always playing the ‘ugly’ role or type casted as the ‘fat girl’? I think that’s also something that has to change! So not only the fashion industry, but also Hollywood has to wake up!
Jennifer Lawrence: “In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I eat like a caveman. I’ll be the only actress that doesn’t have anorexia rumors! I’m never going to starve myself for a part. I’m invincible. I don’t want little girls to be like, “Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I’m going to skip dinner!”
