Remember the naïve personal assistant, Andrea ‘Andy’ Sachs, who was told fat at size 6 in 2006 comedy-drama film The Devil Wears Prada? Are you disturbed by celebrities’ obsession and fascination with Size 00 & 0?
It’s probably safe to assume that most Hollywood actresses think Thinness = Beauty, and are trying very hard to be un-naturally thin… Well, not Anne Hathaway!
The 24 year-old actress, who plays the main character Andy in The Devil Wears Prada, is refused to succumb to such pressure to be thin. She recently told the British edition of Glamour magazine:
“Obsessing about weight is a big old waste of time…”
“It’s completely understandable as a teenager to fret about your body… It’s scary because you don’t know how it’s going to wind up. But I’m not a teenager any more; my body’s chosen its shape. I’d rather be strong than skinny for most roles.”
She added, “‘I’ve had directors say to me, ‘You’re the best actress for the role, but you’ve put on weight recently.’ If people can’t understand you’ve put on five pounds, I don’t want to deal with them.”
