    Default Weight in the Acting Industry

    There's been so much criticism about celebrities, particularly females, being too thin...and I just kind of wanted to start this topic. I know it's been kind of overdiscussed, and sorry if someone already had one similar to this.

    Basically, when you think about it, let's say an actress is a bit chubby, or even average (after all, camera adds 10 pounds hehe). Then everyone is going to call them fat. Then, if they decide to start losing weight, there's more negative comments about their weight loss.

    So, what do you all think is the IDEAL weight then? What weight is going to make you say, "Yeah, they're fine. They're attractive but healthy."

    Finally, one more question about weight...do you think actresses report the truth about their weights?

    their weight is their business, i think.
    actresses just needs to be secure with themselves not to be affected by anybody. after all you cannot please everybody.

    I remember back in the early days of Friends, when J Anniston was called "fat." To me that is crazy. Soon after that she got all tan and skinny.

    My definition of fat is, if you have rolls of fat in your belly when you stand up. THAT is fat. Otherwise, it's not fat. To test if you fit this definition or not, see if you can hold a quarter on your belly when you stand up straight normally. If you can, then you are fat.

    I am all okay with an actress being skinny (well-tone) because they need to look good on the screen. However, being all bones and skin are really gross. I just saw that actress of 24 on Jimmy Kimmel, and her face is bigger than her body. She was wearing a dress that showed a lot of her neck area and all you could see were skin and collar bones. No meat at all. Eww...

    Are there any HK actresses that you would consider to be anorexic? I know that Cecilia Cheung looks like one. She is really pretty though.

    I miss women who had actual curves. Who decided that beauty = looking like famine victims?

    yep - and they even think tat skinny women are sexy....tat's so stupid.
    for instance keira knightly - i like her alot but man - she's too skinny till i feel she's no longer pretty or sexy - yet those magazines n press always vote her as one of the sexiest actress.

    I read somewhere that Nicole Kidman wore a corset to get her waist down to 19 inches...she's 5'11" or something!! Now, while I think Nicole is a great actress (loved her in Moulin Rouge and The Hours) and has that...sophisticated feel to her, she doesn't need to be so underweight. I mean, I'm like way shorter than her and my waist is already at least 22 inches.

    However, I think it's kind of ironic that when an actress is normal or a little up there, people say they're too fat, but when they try to lose weight, the same people start calling them anorexic.

    How can an adult's waist be 19 inches? She must've been really sucking in air.

    22 is a small waist as is.

    Damn here I am going to the gym to put on weight, and these people can't lose their weight fast enough. LOL
