The internet went into a frenzy when Kim Kardashian recently admitted to losing 16 pounds in just 3 weeks for the Met Gala. Was she promoting unhealthy eating habits, or is this normal? No, this is not normal, and others agree. Celebrities come under intense scrutiny for their weight, but here are some who said “No thanks!” to lose weight for a role or track!
1. Florence Pugh
Pugh saidSunday Times Style magazine she was instructed to lose weight for a TV show. “I was a kid and I thought it was Hollywood. And I thought, okay, this is how it works here… and then I felt stupid because I thought, well, sure, how could I come to LA and not expect to discuss my weight on a date?” Instead of losing weight, she posts singing and cooking videos on Instagram Stories. “Cooking with Flo” has become a fan favorite.
2. Aidy Bryant
Despite her incredible success on the legendary “Saturday Night Live,” Bryant described Weekly how she was offered only offensive and mediocre jokes. “There was one where – and I don’t think it ever saw the light of day – a man was in a prison and the other guys in the prison said, ‘You’ve got to get an ugly girl to be yours. the wife of the prison and she will come to bring you food and have sex with you!’ And then they said, ‘And that would be you.'” Instead of accepting these insulting offers, or shedding pounds to become more “acceptable,” she stayed true to who she was and began writing for herself. She decided the only change she needed was the right kinds of roles, and her hit Hulu series Shrill followed.
3. Gigi Hadid
Before Gigi Hadid was labeled as one of the biggest supermodels in the world, she was just a regular high school student. While in high school, Hadid played volleyball and still had a volleyball body after she graduated. After finishing school, she tried to book modeling jobs because of her athletic build. She saidID, “It was a body I loved. I knew how hard I worked to have those muscles, to be curvy in those places.” In 2015, designer Jean Paul Gaultier was the first person to put it on the track.
4. Lili Reinhart
Reinhart has been transparent with her fans about the body image issues she deals with on a daily basis. “I want other young women to see my body on TV and feel comfortable that I’m not a size 0. And I’m not a perfect hourglass shape…This industry struggles with an accurate representation of women’s bodies and men. So I applaud the women who have helped our industry take a step in the right and authentic direction.” Reinhart also expressed her thoughts on Kim Kardashian losing an excess of weight in a short amount of time. “Walking down a red carpet and doing an interview where you say how hungry you are… because you haven’t eaten any carbs in the last month… all to match the beautiful dress? Very wrong.”
5. Kirsten Dunst
Dunst told the director Sofia Coppola to lose weight for the drama film The deceived. Dunst refused, and the director was understandably so. In 2017, Dunst spoke to Variety about the issue. “It’s a lot harder when you’re 35 and you hate working out… I’m eating fried chicken and McDonald’s before work. So I say: ‘We have no chance! I’m sorry I can’t lose weight for this role.”
6. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
In the early stages of her modeling career, Rosie was told she needed to get in better shape and lose weight. “I’m pretty stubborn so I didn’t.”
7. Alex Newell
“Glee” star Alex Newell auditioned for the lead role in Weird boots and the director stated that Newell’s weight would prevent them from playing the part. said NewellStylist, “I was like, ‘This is a show where they’re encouraging you to be who you want to be. Don’t let them tell you who you should be.’ They literally looked me in the face and told me I was too old to play a part. There is no limitation. My weight doesn’t describe what I can’t do.”
8. Ashley Graham
At just 15, Ashley Graham was spotted in a shopping mall and immediately told to lose weight. However, this modeling agent was only the beginning. Graham expressed her opinion to Las Vegas Review-Journal saying, “The really tough moment was when my dad said, ‘Honey, if an agent is telling you to lose weight, then maybe you should.'” Despite comments about her weight, she became the first curvy model in the world. cover of Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Edition.
