Nikky Blonsky: ‘I’m here not to look like all the other girls’

FP_5072507_Milkshakes_FP2_052410 - Nikky Blonsky: 'I’m here not to look like all the other girls'

Nikky brings our quote for the day:

‘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.’

… says 21 year-old Nikky, who has the lead role in a new TV series called Huge (where she can be seen wearing a swimsuit- see here!).

clicked on the link to see more pictures but got completely distracted by another article talking about how Shakiras low slung trousers revealed stretchmarks on her hips. and that was necessary to point out why??
I am sure this girl is about to get severly bashed for her comments, just like on the original article (click above), but if she is happy, and out there living her life, good for her. The weight may drop of naturally as she gets older if she is happy and active, enough that she won’t suffer the worst effects of being severly overweight.

“The weight may drop of naturally as she gets older if she is happy and active”

I would totally agree if she would not have been older than 16-17

What she said is not true.. there are alot of people remembered for how they look, like Marilyn Monroe… Ask any teenager about Marilyn and they’ll know who she is and how she looks but they’ve never seen her movies or poems and know basically nothing about her rather than that she was beautiful.

Minnie
Guest

I agree.
Marilyn Monroe (in my opinion) wasn’t a good actress or a good singer.
I’ve also read that she wasn’t a very good person.

Is she remembered for that?
Of course not!
The impact she made on society was with her appearance, so society remembers her appearance.

I think Marilyn Monroe actually was remembered for more than her looks, there were a lot of very beautiful women iin her era (maybe more beautiful than her) that people don’t really remember. Marilyn Monroe is remembered for her vulnerability and voice, things that stuck out to people. Think “haaaappy birthday Mr. President…” Memorable voice, memorable presence.

pixie

Very true. Her biography, by Donald Spoto, sheds alot of light on who she was. She was actually very intelligent and kind hearted, but unfortuneately alot of people refused to take her seriously.

shell

Completely agree. There were more attractive women than Marilyn in her era, like Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Audery Hepburn etc, but they didn’t have the presence that she had – and they didn’t die young either. Marilyn is just that one celebrity who became the icon, because of the tragic end to her life and all the little trade marks she had; the voice, the white dress, the “ditsy blonde” act, the red lipstick, the white poodle perm….

You know, she really is a beautiful girl – regardless of her weight. Now, here comes the slew of negative comments about how unhealthy she is, how fat she is, how what she’s saying isn’t true – maybe it’s true to her? And others who think freely?

Now… let’s wait and see how many girls get on here and post their measurments and what they do and don’t eat (just like they do EVERY time she’s featured in an article), and watch. It’ll happen – what they don’t get is that they are missing the point entirely.

All well and good, but Nicky’s point is not very well thought out if you ask me. Her point is, in short, “It doesn’t matter how fat and unhealthy your body is, if you’re a nice person you will be remembered for it”. Yes, but if you’re so morbidly obese, then you’re at a high risk for shortening your life span by a significant amount. You aren’t going to live to see yourself be remembered if you continue to maintain such a grossly unhealthy weight Nicky!

It’s good that she is happy with herself. I think she’s a good actress. Though very very unattractive.. i don’t just mean her wt but her facial features. She’s not a pretty big girl. Not that it should matter. Hayley Hasslehoff (sp) is an example of a big beautiful girl (though would look better at a healthier wt.. nevertheless is gorgeous).

Leah
Guest

i agree that she does not look attractive at this weight, but i don’t think it’s her facial features but the amount of extra weight on her face. i’ve never heard of hayley hasslehoff, but from what i can see from google she’s a lot smaller than nikki, so obviously her facial features aren’t as affected by her weight. i think nikki would look gorgeous if she slimmed down a bit

She’s trying to make it sound like it is her destiny to be the size she is (clinically obese)
She’s at the weight she is because she has an eating disorder or some kind of medical condition.
Take responsibility for it! You need to change your lifestyle.

Totally agree. Your addiction should not be what defines you. What she said about her talent is fine. But she is confusing self-destructive behavior with non-conformity.

“addiction”….. really? she’s not addicted to food or anything. Stop assuming stuff.

and Lara your assuming to. “eating disorder or some kind of medical condition.” You can’t be serious.

Minnie
Guest
Minnie

She can be serious.
Do you think that she eats 1800s calories of healthy, nutritious food (and only that) every day and goes to the gym three times a week?
It’s likely that she’s overeating, if she’s not overeating she must have a health problem that makes her obese.
Overeating is an eating disorder.
Eating disorders are unhealthy and are mental disorders.
She may have an addiction or dependency for happiness on food.
She may have some other unhealthy relationship of food.
No matter why she’s overeating (or what health problem she has), promoting it isn’t a good thing.

Minnie

Anara

According to Reference.com promoting means to “help or encourage to exist or flourish; further.” So she is promoting something, but it’s not obesity, or her relationship with food. She’s promoting a healthier view of self, in which people focus on their positives rather than let their negatives take over their lives.

Essence
Guest
Essence

Of course she doesn’t eat 1800 calories a day.
But you dont know if she has a mental or eating disorder, because you dont know her.All you did was mess with words to make it seem like she has a disorder. your assuming too. I agree she shouldnt promote obesity(ingoring dictionary girl above me) but that doesnt give us a right to assume she has disorders.

Minnie
Guest
Minnie

I never said that she has a mental disorder.
I said that if she has an eating disorder, that is a mental disorder.
Why else would she overeat?
I’m sure that she works a lot, so I doubt that it’s boredom.

if this post was on someone who was obviously anorexic, this wouldn’t be a discussion. the “people come in different sizes” thing only goes so far. nikki doesn’t look like she’s at a healthy weight anymore than allegra versace does. maybe she doesn’t have a full-blown eating disorder, but it’s clear that she doesn’t have a healthy relationship with food

Essence
Guest
Essence

@ Minnie, your right, I understand.
@ Leah, nobody is having a “people come in different sizes” discussion. I’m just saying being very fat doesnt automatically equal eating disorder. (bad relationship with food? Okay. But eating disorder? NO) And i’m the type of person that would argue the exact same way for a super skinny girl. Being super skinny doesnt equal anorexic either. Thanks ; )

Lara

Lara

lol @ all your comments!
If an unhealthy relationship with food does not constitute an eating disorder, then what does?

And I mentioned a medical condition because we don’t know if she has a thyroid problem or something.

Essence, you’re very ignorant.

Essence
Guest
Essence

Please, you can’t be serious??? At least I don’t think I ‘m better than her because I’m not fat. (Thats what you sound like) It’s not right to assume she has a eating disorder just because she SUPPOSEDLY has an “unhealthy relationship with food” as you like to put it. I’m ignorant, yet your trying to be her doctor. Well good luck with that.

Well there are three types of overeating. 1) Due to excessive hunger, usually thanks to a medical condition like hypothyroid, or where the stomach and the brain don’t communicate properly so the stomach never tells the brain that it’s full. There’s also onewhere the brain can’t measure sugar levels in the blood, so it always thinks the person is on the verge of death and needs to eat. 2) Overeating due to bad knowledge of nutrition, or not having the means for healthy food, or not caring about it. This is your average overweight person in America. They’re in a… Read more »

Lara – that isn’t what she’s saying at all. She’s saying she’s happy, particularly with who she is – which is the most important thing of all, and that women everywhere should aspire to reach that goal.

Also, you don’t know if she has a medical condition or an eating disorder. She could, in all theory, be a pretty healthy person. Genetics play a huge role in shapes and sizes, and she looks fairly proportioned and able bodied.

She may not have any medical condition nor ED, but she’s unhealthy.. that’s for sure.. With genetics involved or not.. The thing is that this person’s a role model as she’s a hollywood actress on a ABC tv show, which means many many people must see her and follow what she does.. And being all so happy and opening about “not dieting (by that I mean eating healthy..seen in other articles) or working out”, well..

Everyone is role model – teachers, lawyers, doctors, police officers, scholars, scientists, big sisters, mothers, grandmothers – and here’s the kicker – many of them are overweight and are still legit role models and their size has little to do with WHY they are role models. Personally, I’d rather my child look up to a person who is positive about themselves, their life, and becoming a well rounded person, no matter what their weight – than a television persona.

You can enjoy food and enjoy life without being obese, I mean if you really have a weakness for food and you don’t really care for being thin that`’s fine, being a bit overweight won’t actually kill you.

There is no way that a person with that much abdominal fat could be healthy. Perhaps *relatively* healthy, as in, not quite to the level of full-blown diabetes or hypertension yet, but not *objectively* healthy. I’d put five bucks down on there being fatty streaks in all her main arteries, a warning sign of future heart attacks. Do you think she’ll still love her body when all the abuse she’s put it through winds up hospitalizing or killing her?

It’s such an important message to send out to love yourself, but coming from someone who is quite overweight, it just doesn’t seem safe.

What if a girl who is 25 lbs overweight is working really hard to get those pounds off to be healthier and happier and happens to stumble upon Nikky’s quote and then thinks ‘Hey, she’s happy being overweight, I can too! I’m down for a big mac with supersize fries now!’ I mean it just seems like an unsafe domino effect.

If this said girl felt the need to be happy with who she by reading what Nikki Blonsky said, then fantastic – but no where did Nikki advertise going an scarffing down a big mac and fries.

Would you look me in the eye and tell me that Nikki Blonsky got to the level of obesity by eating a balanced 2000-calorie diet consisting primarily of complex carbs, lean protein, fruit and vegetables? Would you honestly be able to say that with a straight face? You probably wouldn’t, because you know it’s not true. Eating a healthy and calorie-conscious diet does not result in obesity (excepting metabolic disorders, which are rare and manifest in other ways as well). The reason why it is insulting for thin women to be called anorexic is because we know perfectly well that… Read more »

I just wish she would at least once say: “Yes, I admit being obese as I am is unhealthy, and I am not promoting that. And I know being severely overweight is very unhealthy and lowers your life expectancy and quality to an extreme degree.
And then she can go on with her ” I love myself blahblahblah…”

I can’t stand her comments because she always sounds like she’s promoting obesity!! That’s the last thing we need in this world.
I can really picture overweight teenagers going: “Oh she’s right, I won’t focus on my weight anymore, BRING ON THE CHEESE FRIES!!

Exactly. Thats what I think. Regardless of what people may say, she is a role model, and she is pretty much condoning being fat. She keeps subliminally saying she loves herself, unmindful of her size, and she can if she wants. I have no problem with that, but she needs to also say that being fat shouldn’t be a goal or anything like that. Without that added, it sounds like she’s saying dont be a normal size, be fat.
(I know thats not what she’s saying, but unless you read into it, on the surface thats what it sounds like)

The purpose is not to promote obesity but herself. She can’t appeal to men for her fan base, she can’t depend on her looks. But the bigger her fan base is the better she’ll do in hollywood. If she makes all the many many overweight ppl in America want to cheer her on for being a “nonconformist” rather than obese, because that’s what will make them all feel better about themselves, than that’s a good career move. A lot of fat ppl are cheering her on going, “We’re not fat, we’re nonconformist, and we’ll be remembered for our awesome personalities… Read more »

lol are you insane? dieting and losing a significant amount of weight (20 pounds plus) is A LOT of work. It takes a long period of consistent effort, even if you’re exercising too (years in some cases). Sure, it can be done, and its certainly not impossible, but to belittle the work it takes to loose weight in a healthy manner and keep it off is ignorant and condescending. I agree that this chick could/should lose a bunch of weight, but I think its important to note that significant weight loss isn’t an easy journey and I can understand why… Read more »

Alexa@Living La Vida Pura

Spoken like someone who doesn’t understand the point of a diet. It is not to go hungry all the time. It is to make a fundamental change in your lifestyle. It is to take you from hitting the McDonald’s drive-through every night, to eating a Kashi frozen meal instead, to cooking your own dinner from whole food ingredients, through gradual steps.
There’s nothing difficult about eating right; you just have to choose to do it, and if you fail, you’ve got nobody to blame but yourself.

The only thing that ‘separates’ her from other girls is the extra 60 kilograms. Being obese is not something to be proud of, unless you are proud to shorten your life. The impact she hopes to have on people’s lives won’t happen if she dies in a few years from a heart attack.

I don’t think she is trying to promote her size and encourage others to follow her example. I think what she is trying to say is that you have to be happy with who you are, even if you are trying to be different (by losing or putting on weight, toning up, etc) you are still as you are in the short term and there is no point in going around hating yourself when it can’t be changed immediately.

But REGARDLESS of how she feels about herself and what her self-confidence is, she is OBESE. And that is unhealthy. It really doesn’t matter whether she’s a chronic overeater or just genetically more inclined to be overweight – the health risks are pretty well the same either way.

She’s no better than anyone else. She’s using her body as her selling point. That is what is keeping her famous, not her talent. She’s as bad as any other who insists upon themselves. She’s another washed up actress who happens to be fat and obviously has no problem exploiting herself for it.

The amount of comments Nicky makes about not caring about her appearance is unreal. The fact she continually feels the need to defend her weight suggests to me that her “I love my body” attitude is all a facade; it’s as though she is putting on a suit of armour against everyone else. But at the end of the day, it’s her fault. It isn’t like her body size is something she can’t control. She has the opportunity to loose weight and become healthy, and with being healthy comes having an attractive body. She must be uncomfortable being so fat;… Read more »

Don’t get me wrong I don’t expect her to get as skinny and toned as the other women shown on this website, but I would like to see her loose 10-25 pounds.

She’s unique? Being obese doesn’t make you unique, it makes you lazy, unless she has some sort of health condition that makes her obese. Yes she may have a slow metabolism and all that, but she could still be at a much healthier weight. And don’t tell me she just doesn’t want to obsess over her food, you don’t need to obsess, especially as she has the money to go to a nutritionist and get a general template of what she should eat. She doesn’t need to be tiny, but losing enough weight to at least get from obese to… Read more »

Completely agree. Every single person who has a normal metabolism (ie, they aren’t one of the genetically fine boned, extremely high metabolism types who are unable to gain weight) is capable of becoming obese, if they gradually keep increasing their food intake and don’t exercise enough to accomodate the extra calories.

Besides, there is nothing admirable about being unhealthy by your own choice.

I find many of the comments on here very sad. Firstly, it seems that so many people are missing the point; she is speaking about improving one’s self esteem and focusing on positive aspects of one’s life. Just because she says she doesn’t dwell on the “negatives” (which most here would assume is her weight) doesn’t mean she’s delusional or in denial about her body. Improving one’s outlook on life and seeing more positivity in ourselves and others is something everyone, regardless of BMI, is always a great idea. No one here can judge health by simply looking at Nikky,… Read more »

it’s nice seeing your comment among this overflow of negative, and sometimes purely offensive comments…when did it become ok to describe anyone as “gross”, “lazy” “the size of a house” , saying she had “a mental disorder” or giving some kind advice like “just go on a diet”? I know this is a website about weight and body types, and that’s what we’re discussing here, but let’s keep it civilized!

Personal trainer for six years, eh? And you never figured out that there is only one diet that actually works: The one that creates a calorie deficit. Furthermore, you never figured out that diets should never, ever be a temporary quick-fix, but instead a lifelong commitment to that lifestyle. I call shenanigans.

I get the feeling that most comments abour health don’t really care about it, as much as wanting to say that they don’t approve and using it as an excuse. Why do you, internet commentator, assume that you care more about her health than she does? Yes, she is overweight, but she also has wonderful self esteem. What is it to you if she is unhealthy? If she doesn’t feel the need to lose weight, then it is Nikky’s perogative. I feel like if it were a thin person who didn’t work out and diet we wouldn’t be calling her… Read more »

I actually think she has a good point in saying that looks are not anything, but then again, she should realize that it is not healthy for someone to be that size. There are many diseases associated with being obese.

“There’s something in me that separates me and makes me different and I don’t think it’s my weight.” I hate to be the one that points it out, but it is her weight that differentiates her. If you look at the three leading roles she’s had, in Huge, Hairspray and Queen Sized, they are not roles that could have been offered to many other celebrities without said celebrity gaining a significant amount of weight. In that prospect, she has found her ‘niche’ market, but it is her weight that differentiates her. I think its great that she loves her body,… Read more »

I don’t think that’s her fault, it’s the fault of people who only buy and watch movies with above-average looking people. So only movies with skinny people are produced. And she is FORCED into a niche. I know many people who switched from Hollywood movies to European arthouse and they had a major shock. Seeing love stories between people are not skinny, beautiful and young! The HORROR. And some men had scenes with women who had DROOPY NATURAL BREASTS and yet their heads didn’t implode. I’m not sayin European movies are all that way, but on average, you can use… Read more »

God, such bland responses (from Nikky). First off, I mean, what does being remembered for your personality really mean? Personalities are not stationary things, nor are they the same in the same environments. Do any of us have the same personality we did when we were 2? 5? 10? 20? 30? 40? 80? Nope. So how exactly can you be, “remembered,” for it. I get her general gist…that what’s on the outside is only a factor of your entire self-worth. But the way she expresses it is so shallow and thoughtless. It’s kind of like beauty pagent responses like “I… Read more »

ok i saw a comment about hayley hassellhoff being a ‘pretty’ big girl,this just shows how diluted our society has become,that girl is not big whatsoever. the point f her being on that show is that shes the thinnest girl at fat camp and no one understands why shes there,and shes there because she thinks to be beautiful she needs to be a size 0. its to show how ridiculous our world has become with whats an acceptable weight,its ridiculous and makes me sick

Wow she’s the thinnest girl at a FAT camp.. it’s like saying she’s the fattest girl at an anorexic rehab center. It’s still not healthy. I didn’t say anything about her being more beautiful at a size 0. I said if she lost a little weight. And yes she is big. Studies show that Americans that are 20 pounds overwt think they are in the “healthy range” for their ht. Fat is very acceptable in America cuz the majority is overwt.

I agree with a previous post that the point Nikki is probably trying to bring home is that the person you are is more important that the person you weigh.

However, the problem is that like many celebrities she is very ambiguious with her statements and it is thus easy for them to become misconstrued.

After seeing the picture in the swimsuit, it all makes sense. She is surrounded by people just as large or larger than her, told probably how sexy and beautiful she is by them (which is not a bad thing, don’t get me wrong), fed the same amount/kind of food as them and having the same lifestyle. Then, there is the real world. That hits hard! Destroys the little world she has built around her. And hurts. Therefore all the justification. But the more she’s justifying herself, the more it hurts as she realizes the big gap between her world and… Read more »

Weight fluctuates a lot more than your personality. She’s right. It’s better to be a kind person.

It’s a shame that she’ll probably see a lot of ugly at her current size.

I also think she gained weight for that new show, I don’t recall her being that big before. And I thought she was lovely in Hairspray.
