“I guess my mom raised me right. She was very celebratory of her body. I never heard her once say, ‘I feel fat,’”.
“I felt beautiful, and I never tried to lose it, ‘cause I loved it.”
Christina Hendricks on gaining weight when she first started modeling.

Who’s excited for the release of Titanic in Imax!!? Got my tickets, got my tissues, got my girls. It’s ON.
I was 14 when Titanic came out and deeply, DEEPLY in love with Leonardo DiCaprio (my old agenda is embarrassingly filled with ‘Ms. Dicaprio’ signatures). While my love for Leo has dwindled a tad over the years, my love for Kate Winslet has only grown. Not only is she talented, well spoken & gorgeous, but she’s got a body lovin’ attitude that’s simply contagious.
As previous posts have hinted, Margaret Cho is out for bloody, word-revenge against anyone who dare threaten body image for young girls. In her latest attack, she dishes out some brutal verbage towards Karl Lagerfeld, who’s recent comments about singer Adele have made headlines.
Warning: foul language, mentions of violence, and unapologetic ranting.
When you say we are fat, you murder our grace, and we’ve already lost so much to begin with. We’ve already lost everything, except weight. That we gain steadily, along with self hatred, and all you are doing is adding to our burden, pressing down on the scale with the long toe of your fine, elegantly tassled loafer.
We don’t have millions of dollars to perforate our fat with expensive, experimental injections. We don’t have time to be lightheaded and sick with hunger. We can’t afford fasting clinics in the Swiss Alps or a messianic nutritionist or portion controlled meals wrapped up in white linen and enshrouded in Chanel camellias. We have to pay the rent and pay for gas and if eating is some comfort to us in our difficult lives, let it be so. Just let us be. Let us listen to Adele, who is triumphantly one of us and let us enjoy her and feel like her and think we are her for a moment and be safe in her music and in our heads.
“No matter someone’s body history, their weight is allowed to fluctuate. Jones isn’t obese, and she isn’t publicly discussing any concern for her size or health. She may look a little heavier than she did a few months ago, but you know what ? So do I. And it’s not because I’ve let my health go, or I’m going through an emotionally difficult time. Weight fluctuation is normal and even healthy to some degree. And Jones just doesn’t seem to me like she’s on the brink of becoming obese again or putting her health at risk. And, given that she’s been proactive about managing her weight in the past, I somehow doubt we all need to stay up at night worrying that she’ll find help if she needs it”.
