36 year-old Rebel Wilson is currently working on Pitch Perfect 3 and while the star doesn’t want to lose weight for her role, she is also concerned with looking twice as big as her coworkers. But more interestingly, the actress mentions the Hollywood weight pressure of fitting into a clear mould, where you have to be either very thin or overweight, just not in the middle, in order to have a distinctive label and get roles.
On the fact that her fans don’t want her to lose weight because being in the middle range in Hollywood is bad:
You know what? People say, ‘Don’t lose weight.’ You don’t want to be in that weird range of are you skinny or are you fat? Because how do you class yourself then? Weirdly, a lot of people say “Don’t,” but then I guess when you’re doing movies with actresses who are super skinny and whatever and you got to do a photo shoot side by side… then you notice you’re twice the weight they are.
On how she feels about her body and her outlook on body size despite the Hollywood weight pressure:
But for me, it’s just about being comfortable in your own skin. You never want to be like too unhealthy because that’s bad. But you just want to be comfortable with who you are, whatever your size.
Kate Winslet is in Glamour Magazine this month, where she rocks a tightÂ black dress on the cover and discusses body weight and image and plastic surgeryÂ in the interview:
GLAMOUR: During your last interview for Glamour six years ago, you were asked what you were going to be like in five years. And you jokingly replied that you’d be doing liposuction and Botox. Have you changed your mind about not trying those cosmetic things? KATE WINSLET: My face is still moving, right? No, I have never tried any of that stuffâ€¦. I don’t have parts of my body that I hate or would like to trade for somebody else’s or wish I could surgically adjust into some fantasy version of what they are.
GLAMOUR: I read that you were literally called â€œblubberâ€ when you were a teenager because you were overweight. KATE WINSLET: Yeah. Not when I was a teenager, actually-between the ages of 8 and 11. Looking back on it, I really wasn’t that heavy. I was just stockier than the other sporty, whippy-looking kids.
GLAMOUR: You stood 5’6â€ and weighed 200 pounds (90 kg at 168 cm)? KATE WINSLET: When I was 15, yes.
GLAMOUR: Were you tormented? Because today you embrace your body in a way that women love-but did you feel that way back then? KATE WINSLET: Well, that’s an enormous compliment. You know, I will tell you that when I was heavy, people would say to me-and it was such a backhanded comment-they would say, â€œYou’ve got such a beautiful face,â€ in the way of, like, â€œOh, isn’t it a shame that from the neck down you’re questionable.â€
â€œI’m fat as f**k, what can I say? You know, after all these years, it’s just like we are who we are and it’s a struggle for me and sometimes I’m heavier and sometimes I’m thinner.â€
Carnie also mentioned in the past something about her eating habits:
â€œI’ve been really changing how I eat. It’s great. I cooked really fattening food on the show but I lost 11 pounds while we did it. I cooked for everybody on the set every day. I’d wake up early and bake and then I wouldn’t be eating the food. I would eat and spit, taste and spit.â€

Crystal Renn is definitely not the ‘plus-est’ model on the runway anymore! Singer Beth Ditto joined the model club when she rocked the runway at Jean Paul Gaultier’s 2011 Spring fashion show. Both ladies showed off their legs in edgy ensembles and Crystal was hard-to-identify because of her cropped black wig.
Plus-size model Marquita Pring also joined them on stage – see her on the next page!
‘Find things that make you feel great about yourself and then focus on that rather than on the things that make you upset about yourself. ‘Pick out the great things that you love about yourself. Whether it be your personality or jokes, whatever it is and focus on that rather than, “oh my hips are too big” or “I have fat on my thighs.
Beauty fades as we get older. We will be remembered for the important things like our personalities and the work that we’ve done and how we’ve impacted other people’s lives. Not what we look like. I just realise that I’m here for a reason. I’m here not to look like all the other girls. There’s something in me that separates me and makes me different and I don’t think it’s my weight. Obviously that’s the physical reason but I think when it comes down to it, I always believed talent would prevail.’
