Chrissy Metz on Losing Weight for Her Show: “I’m not selling out the big girls”

chrissy-metz-weight-2-1 - Chrissy Metz on Losing Weight for Her Show: "I’m not selling out the big girls"

The topic of ‘Chrissy Metz weight’ has been trending recently, after the first hit episodes of the new NBC show This Is Us. The 37 year-old actress plays Kate on the show, who is about lose weight as a result of gastric bypass surgery – and the actress is excited for the major journey she’s about to embark on. Chrissy recently opened up about her weight, body image and losing weight for her role:

On losing weight for the show:

It’s a different kind of motivation, so I was excited about it. In our contract, it did state that that would be a part of it, to lose the weight in the trajectory of the character as she comes to find herself. That was a win-win for me. Because it’s one thing to try to do it on your own. But as human beings, it’s an ego thing: We’re more likely to do something for someone else.

On the fact that losing weight doesn’t mean that she is betraying the bigger girls:

I, as Chrissy, want to do things that mentally, emotionally and physically make me the best that I can be. That’s the intention for our writers and the development of the character. I just have to be very clear. Whether or not I lose weight or stay the same, it’s purely a choice of mine for health. Not because I think that plus size, curvy, voluptuous, big bodies aren’t attractive — because I think they’re awesome and sexy. So I’ll just have to make sure that’s known, because I’m not selling out the big girls. I don’t do that. That’s not me.

On how at her size, weight is always the focus:

You know, it’s really hard for me because I have friends who are like, Why do we have to talk about the weight? Why can’t you just be an actor who happens to be overweight in the show and you’re moving on with your life? and I completely understand that. Eventually I know that that will be the case — there will just be plus-size actors and it’s not going to be talked about. However, this role is written about a woman who — it was loosely based on Dan Fogelman’s sister — who struggled with her weight and her self-worth. And a lot of people do, and I have myself, as a human being. So this is a story that needs to be told because there are people who find their self-worth in the number on the scale.

Actress Danielle Brooks: “Ladies, don’t compare yourself to nobody. Just be a better you”

danielle-brooks-body - Actress Danielle Brooks: "Ladies, don’t compare yourself to nobody. Just be a better you"

27 year-old actress Danielle Brooks is best known for her role in Orange Is the New Black, where she plays Tasha. Danielle recently opened up about the harms caused by comparing yourself with other women and the way it affects your body confidence – here’s what she had to say:

I just left the gym and as most people know I take my shirt off when I go to the gym. That’s my new thing, it gives me confidence. So I had my shirt off and this lady walks in. She was bad. She looked great with her shirt off. So immediately I’m like ‘Oh no,’ I started to lose my confidence. I’m like ‘I need to put my shirt back on now or do I keep it off cause she’s already seen me.’ So I realize I’m comparing myself to this woman, and I’m like, ‘Why just two minutes ago I was feeling great and now I’m not?’ And I realized the reason I was feeling so great is because I was comparing myself to yesterday’s Danielle. And today’s Danielle is better than yesterday’s. That’s why I felt so good. Ladies, don’t compare yourself to nobody. Just be a better you.

… says Danielle.

Cynthia Nixon: “In SATC we had to be thin and look great all the time”

Comparing Sex and the City with Girls:

 ‘I think Girls is really important. When sex was bad on Sex and the City it was funny. And the worse it was, the funnier it was. But when sex is bad on Girls, it can be really hard to watch, and it’s sometimes abusive, and it’s important to show that.’

On body image in the two shows:

‘Plus, in SATC we had to be thin and look great all the time; in Girls, they have permission to be more real and less airbrushed. I’d always worked happily without focusing much on the way I looked, so it was like a whole undiscovered country.’

… says 50 ear-old Cynthia in The Edit this month.

Natalie Imbruglia: “Why would you want to lie about how old you are? It’s stupid.”

41 year-old Australian singer Natalie Imbruglia opened up recently about the differences between how women and men get treated in the media, as well as about Hollywood’s divas who lied bout their age:

On how men have it easier:

It’s sad that in the media, we’re scrutinized more harshly than men. The George Clooneys of the world don’t get asked the same things women do.

On how she doesn’t understand women who lie about their age:

I think if you try to hold on too tightly to youth, you get yourself into trouble. I don’t care about telling people my age. In Hollywood, people shy away from that, which I find hysterical. Why would you want to lie about how old you are? It’s stupid.

… said Natalie in an interview with The Daily Telegraph.

Victoria’s Secret Model Bridget Malcolm Responds to Weight Critics

Let's gooooo!!! #trainlikeanangel

A photo posted by Bridget Over Troubled Water. (@bridgetmalcolm) on

24 year-old Victoria’s Secret model Bridget Malcolm is a fitness fanatic and she shares lots of workout pictures (as well as the results of those workouts) on social media – but this exposure usually comes with haters as well. And in Bridget’s case, the haters criticize the Australian blonde’s figure, saying she is way too thin.

On the fact that fat shaming, as well as skinny shaming has to stop:

Whether it’s skinny or fat shaming, it’s such a superfluous thing to do to someone. It’s so irrelevant to who they are as a person.

On her haters who call her anorexic:

I know that those people are hurting inside and I hope that they find some happiness really.

A while back, Bridget shared her disappointment at being called too skinny:

Can we STOP with the skinny shaming please? I am extremely fit and healthy and am not in the slightest way anorexic. I have worked hard to look like this and am proud of my body. I may not be the curviest but I am a woman who has every right to look the way I do. Maybe today take a look inside yourself and wonder why you feel the need to shame strangers over the Internet about their bodies. Peace and love to you all – let’s change the conversation.

Love my @bodybysimone 💪🤘#trainlikeanangel
