Yeah, Hollywood sends out the wrong messages and preaches "thin" to their female actors and models. Some of these women take it to the extreme though and that is not the fault of Hollywood really.
This next this is not about weight, but it's along the same lines about fitting into Hollywood standards.
Hollywood is saying is that everyone should have plastic surgery and botox to preserve their youthful appearance. It's increasingly harder to find actors who haven't had any plastic surgery.
I read a Washington Post article that actually said that casting directors were having a hard time finding actors to cast in roles because everyone looks so plastic and has such stretched skin and that "deer in the headlights" look. Apparently there is a shortage of "natural" looking people in Hollywood. I found that very ironic since not even 20 years ago they were pushing everyone to look younger and more youthful etc. LOL
Tonight I was watching a rerun of CSI NY, and one of the guests had so much botox that more than 1/2 of her face was paralyzed and didn't move at all. From the upper lip upwards her face never changed. When she talked her lower jaw moved but her lips ever changed position so her mouth when she did "ooo" and "oh" sounds looked like it did when she was making "teee" or "zeee" sounds. I felt badly for anyone who needed to lip read because lip reading when she talked was impossible because her mouth never changed shape.
Nicole Kidman is another example. She has never been a "beauty" in my opinion, but she used to have a very cute teeth showing, smile. Now she can't smile because her face is stretched so tight that all she can do is make goofy expressions and smirks.
I find that I much prefer to watch reruns of older shows because I can't stand to look at some of the people on the TV or movie screens these days.http://www.awfulplasticsurgery.com/
There is a list in the right side menu that you can click on and see various stars and their plastic surgery transformations over the years. It's really scarey.
