5 Celebrities Who Are Fed Up of Being Called Too Thin
These 5 celebrities are constantly bashed for their weight by the public and media, but instead of being called “fat” as you might expect, they’re bashed for being “too thin” regularly. It seems as though the media are never happy as opinions switch from stars being overweight to underweight in the blind of an eye, so what really is the perfect weight? The answer is obviously whatever is healthy and makes the individual happiest in their appearance and these 5 stars all say they are just naturally that thin. They don’t suffer from eating disorders or put themselves on constant diets – they eat normally and maintain a very skinny figure without having to try to slim down and they live healthy lives. Tired of always defending their naturally slim figures, these 5 stars have spoken out on the topic.
Alexa is regularly called out for being too thin and hates that she isn’t accepted for what she looks like:”People that are bigger can be on the front covers of magazines saying: ‘I’m really happy with my shape.’ But if I was to do that, I’d be completely criticised and ridiculed. But why can’t I be happy with how I look? I just get frustrated because, just because I exist in this shape, doesn’t mean that I’m like advocating it and saying: ‘I look great.’ How do you know I’m not looking in the mirror and going: ‘I wish I could gain 10 pounds?’ Which is actually quite often the case. But if you say that you sound like you’re bragging that you’re naturally thin, and you’re not allowed to do that because even though it’s not the ideal weight, it kind of is as well.”
Denise says she tries to live in a healthy way so can’t understand why someone would critize her for her weight: “I don’t know why lately I’ve been getting so much flack for it… I have a very healthy lifestyle and I’m busy, I have a daughter who’s almost 2 that I carry all the time. She’s just under 30 pounds. I’m such an advocate for health and fitness… in moderation. We eat ice cream all the time. I had grilled cheese before we got here.”
Keira is often called anorexic in the media and the actress is fed up of defending her natural figure: “Whatever people say about my weight they are all wrong. There is pressure to be thin in Hollywood because it’s all about the way you look. But I’m not going to apologise for the way I look. If you’re strong and comfortable with yourself then you’re going to be fine.”
Kendall claims to want to gain weight but says she can’t do it naturally: ”I’m constantly criticised for being too skinny. I’m trying to gain weight but my body won’t let it happen. What people don’t understand is that calling someone too skinny is the same as calling someone too fat, it’s not a nice feeling.”
Shailene struggled to gain weight in school and was bullied for being too thin which she thought was so hurtful: “I’ve always been thin – no matter what I ate, I couldn’t gain weight. And, as I got to high school and the girls around me developed breasts and hips, I felt even more insecure about my kid-ish figure. Freshman year, upperclassmen would call me anorexic, so I’d go home and cry, wishing really hard for the curves to appear. Those girls and guys made me feel like something was wrong with me! But now I realise something was wrong with them. Saying ‘You’re so skinny’ to a girl who was born with that body can be just as hurtful as calling someone fat. Both comments reduce people to what they look like, and that’s just not fair. We’re all different.”
