Well, you know ... she herself said that when she had lost all that weight, so many of the Hollywood folk said "wow, you lost a lot of weight ... you look great", making her think that she was super-fat! What a thing to do to a "kid" (who at the time was what - 17/18)? We may all think that she's an adult, but think about yourself at that age ... and imagine being told that?
Although this gets me thinking about one of my other pet peeves ... the whole clothing sizes thing! I lost a lot of weight a few years ago (unfortunately, a lot of it came off because of a botched surgery). Anyhow, I'm now a size 10. Well ... the stinkin' designers consider me EXTRA-LARGE! I take offense to that ... !!!!!!!!! So, size 2,6,8 is "normal" ... I don't think so! While there are plenty of people who are naturally that size, there are also plenty of folks who are not. Hollywood and the magazines all buy into this crap ... and are feeding these young girls this crap that if they aren't a size zero (hello - zero means NOTHING!), a 2, 4 or 6 ... then they are FAT! We really need to work on this; this is really screwing up a lot of young girls' heads. This is not the case in Europe. I think they have a much healthier attitude towards their bodies than we do.
