What do you expect from an industry that tells women that size 6 is "plus." And then goes on praising that "plus sized" actress for being brave enough to be "fat" in Hollywood.

Mind you, male actors don't have it much better. If you are comedic actor who doesn't mind playing only "schlub" roles, then you can be as big as you want. But if you want to be a leading man, you must have washboard abs and the body fat index of .03% at all times. Otherwise, it's "schlub" roles for you, tubby. I bet there are many eating disorders among male actors but it is never discussed because no one can believe it or it is not seen as "manly."

i bet her BMI is on the low side of normal. and not even way on the low side.

and her legs are skinny, and yet the most of the pictures in the article are of her doing leg exercises. as in, trying to bulk them up. still, weight wise, i'm pretty sure she's in the 'healthy' range of BMI.

Quantum Apostrophe: Tickle Mittens: some sort of dire medical condition which her routine controls.

I don't think this is her problem, but if you have totally out-of-control diabetes (some people with type I, for example, but obviously not all), sometimes the only thing you can do is exercise as much as possible just to keep your blood sugars managable.

We had a guy in my old lab who had type I and type II diabetes, and when he wasn't working (and sometimes passing out from a crash, or being hyper-agro and spacey from a high) he was at the gym either lifting or on the bike to get the sugar out of his system. Poor guy, but he was buff as hell.

Complete and utter nonsense. As someone who actually works in the health field, I guarantee there is no way in hell she's even close to the lowest range of her BMI. Not even close. She has most of the physical characteristics of emaciation. Looking at the older pics of her, it's downright depressing.

It must really suck to be an actress. Right at the point when you have enough experience to really hone your craft, you're not nubile enough to get the parts anymore.

There is nothing "extraordinarily fit" about being emaciated and underweight. In terms of health risks and mortality this is actually very similar to morbid obesity. Women as thin as JC are prone to hormone and immune deficiency, osteoporosis, anemia and alopecia, and are just as likely to die young as an obese person.

Do most people with obese BMIs look like that?

There's more to it than that...it's a kind of Body Dysmorphic Disorder that goes along with it. These women look at a mirror and actually see themselves as huge fat bloated monsters even when they've got those concentration-camp knees. I read an article about anorexia, and in one exercise, a therapist had an anorexic girl draw her outline on a piece of paper--the girl's own estimate of how big her outline was. Then the therapist had her lie down and traced around her body, showing the real outline inside the fat huge one the girl drew.

And THEN the girl refused to believe the smaller outline was really her, that the therapist was faking it or drew underneath her or something. This girl believed she was really hugely fat, and nobody would convince her otherwise. Seems to me the same thing is going on with these horrible, bony celebrities. They can look at pictures like these and think "Wow, I really look great!"

And again I'm left wondering: how the hell do two people have sex ass-to-ass?

Yeah, pretty much nothing sexy about that movie at all.

AdolfOliverPanties: Anorexia. She is showing a lot of the signs. Sucks.


If that wasn't 'shopped, it could also be cortisol damage from extreme exercising, Ever noticed how most professional runners look so gaunt and sickly when compared to other athletes? That is because they do so much strain and stress damage to their body, it is in a constant state of cortisol overload, which when combined with the continuous exercise, results in the muscle and collagen breaking down and wasting away. Runners who were otherwise considered "very healthy" have actually dropped dead at this stage, because their hearts failed... from the tissue breakdown. I think it may even lead to a psychological component that continues to drive the obsessive behavior, and would like to see more research on this subject.

Put me in the camp that a young and chubby Jennifer was far better looking than the allegedly healthy and gaunt one. Losing a little weight never hurt anybody, but that's just sad. Yes, I know that beauty fades and we all get old, but damn, some curves help soften the ageing look: the creases and wrinkles look far worse without the filler :(
