Ski Racer Lindsey Vonn on Skinny Celebs: “I feel like I need to give them a cheeseburger”

186118342_10 - Ski Racer Lindsey Vonn on Skinny Celebs: "I feel like I need to give them a cheeseburger"

29 year-old Ski racer Lindsey Vonn, who is listed as 5’10” and 160 lbs (178 cm and 73 kg), recently opened up about how her athletic body type sometimes makes her feel insecure in Hollywood:

On whether she ever felt insecure about her body:

Definitely. It was hard to go to the Met ball [last May], with people who eat lettuce and a Diet Coke for dinner. It’s difficult to be at events with a room full of women who weigh half as much as you do. That’s always tough. I don’t envy them, though, because so many of them are skinny-fat. They have more cellulite than most people. I feel like I need to give them a cheeseburger. It’s sexy and beautiful to be strong.

… says Lindsey.

God, it’s not like she’s not slim or whatever. I would have found this quote believable if it was coming from Gabourey Sidibe but Lindsey is just as slim as many other celebrities. I also think that her quote doesn’t make a lot of sense-she’s saying that most celebs are skinny-fat, untoned and have cellulite and then she wants to give them a cheeseburger? Really? How’s that going to make them more toned?
Besides this, I think she’s a pretty lady and her hair looks quite nice in the first and last pic.

To me it looks like she didn’t put enough thoughts in what she was saying.

If you’re eating nothing then you can’t build muscle and you can’t look toned if you don’t have some muscle. Therefore if you work hard enough and eat a cheeseburger or ten (amongst many other things) then it will actually help.

Thank you! I know a girl who said she was going in a 1200 calorie diet for spring break this year to get rid of her cellulite. I tried to explain this to her, but I didn’t know how without sounding b—y.

To me, it sounds like she’s just jealous of the other women thinner and is trying to make herself feel better. I don’t think she’s very pretty at all. She probably knows Tiger has his eye out for all the better looking women.

I agree that it’s sexy and beautiful to be strong. And I think she looks gorgeous. She’s really naturally beautiful and looks like she’s in great shape. She has nothing to be self conscious about around the ‘waifs’ at the Met ball. It seems insecure to criticize the women for it and say she wants to feed them. That line about the cheeseburgers is so played out.

lc

Oh, please. Seriously? She sounds bitter and I’m not sure why, it’s not like she’s a big woman or anything.

HB

Right? She’s curvy and firm and fit, but she sounds SO insecure and b—y… Even if she’s thinking like this, why in the world would she open her mouth about it??

Yeah, okay – that makes a lot of sense. They have cellulite, lets give them a cheeseburger… but also its good to be healthy and strong, but yeah lets give them a cheeseburger and put down their bodies in the process. Yup, the insecurity is strong with this one.

Maybe it would have been funny when said out loud- I often find that humour/sarcasm rarely come across well on paper (or screen.) However looking at the quote here, to me it’s anything *but* amusing; she just comes across as bitter, snarky and insecure.

I know that muscle weights more than fat but I find it hard to believe her supposed weight. I have a very similar body and I also build muscle easily, and I’m 25 lbs lighter (granted, I’m 5’6). Can’t really comment on her body since it’s so similar to mine, I know I think her arms are chubby because I feel the same way about mine, but I don’t think she looks bad, Goes to show we’re too harsh on ourselves, if that picture had my face on it I’d be nitpicking non-stop. About her quote, I can never understand… Read more »

“I can never understand why people are compelled to want to feed other people. It’s not as if the people attending the Met ball can’t afford a cheeseburguer. It’s a choice, let them be.” alleluia! I so damn HATE eat pushers,and were I am there’s so many

Muscle doesn’t weigh more than fat.

saige
Guest
saige

Yes, it does – Muscle fibers are denser than adipose tissue – so 1 square inch of muscle would weigh more than 1 square inch of fat due to density alone. Lindsey is an athlete so she has more muscle than the average woman.

HazeL
Guest

I’m the same height/ weight and have a similar body so I think it’s entirely possible for her to be 160lbs. I think people tend to underestimate weight on taller people and assume is you’re slim you can’t weigh anymore than 130lbs

Debbs

Agreed.

SpecialSundae
Guest

Her job and her whole life is about being fit for her sport (which does require quite a lot of strength and power) and therefore she will carry a lot more muscle than you will from going to the gym a few times a week, plus four inches does make a big difference in weight.

What a RUDE arrogant comment. I hate when celebs try to pretend they are like the model of body acceptance when they are white and slim with SLIGHT curves and very conventionally attractive. That doesnt mean that they don’t have body image issues but stop pretending that you are so different and special from everyone else. And I hate when people are so patronizing about what others look like or eat. If someone really only eats a piece of lettuce and coke for dinner, that indicates something is very wrong and it could possibly be an eating disorder — it… Read more »

I agree that being strong is beautiful and sexy…but I don’t know what she is talking about. She is very slim anyway, and she is athletic but she doesn’t look overly athletic. It’s not the first thing I would think when looking at her. She has a nice body.

A
Guest

I think I understand what she’s saying.

If you have a diet that consists of only lettuce and diet soda, you’re not getting enough vitamins or nutrients. You’re not getting any protein or fat. And you probably won’t have any muscle tone. Creating the skinny-fat look.

Cheeseburgers aren’t exactly the healthiest thing in the world. But it’s filled with carbs, fat, protein, iron and other vitamins and nutrients.

Regardless of what her statement means, she sounds kind of catty.

she seems unconfident & bitter, :” It’s difficult to be at events with a room full of women
who weigh half as much as you do”
“many of them are skinny-fat. They have more
cellulite than most people.”

she has beautiful figure though.

Cal
Guest

That’s a pretty condescending comment coming from a pro athlete. She should know better than anyone that a slim frame does not have to equate being unfit, especially in fitness-crazed LA. It smacks of arrogance that she was so quick to label these women as skinny-fat. Disappointing.

Erica
Guest

She looks great, but the whole ‘cheeseburger’ thing is cliche and stupid. I don’t know why she felt the need to say that – her figure is great and she’s a successful athlete, she doesn’t need to be envious of fashion models or actresses! It just shows that the pressure to be thin is high in the celeb world – even perfectly slim, fit and healthy athletes feel they should be a smaller dress size!

annabanana
Guest

Yes, I honestly think its quite sad that she feels pressure to be skinnier when that’s not even her job, and she is very successful at her profession, AND she looks great. Ugh what is the world coming to… you’d think all that matters about a woman is her appearance, at least in Hollywood, and its unfortunate how much influence it has on the rest of the world.

Where did she say was envious of fashion models? She doesn’t even mention fashion models in her quote. It’s you that is envious/obsessed with hating on fashion models or VS models. She doesn’t say anything about models, she is talking about Hollywood. Most fashion models are based in New York, Paris, London or Milan not Hollywood.

kia
Guest

I like the quote ”is sexy and beautiful to be strong(rather than fragile and needy)” but 5’10” and 160 lbs (178 cm and 73 kg) is just a LIE. at that height she could be 63 kg and not 73, I’m 4cm less than her and it’s very clear to me how my body is at 55,65,75 kg. again,NO WAY she is 73kg even with a lot of muscle mass(that I also had). why people say that she weight 10kg more?

stu

Kia – most athletic women at 5-10 weight AT LEAST 160. She’s actually been quoted as saying she’s normally 165 and on the off season, 170. She is very muscular. Keep in mind the actress Gemma Arterton is 5-7 & 150; at roughly 5 pounds for every inch, she would weigh 170 if she was 5-10. They have similar body types. I’m glad she is open about her weight – she’s a world class athlete; not a runway anorexic model – this makes total sense. If more celebrities were open about their weight, this may encourage all of us to… Read more »

Looks like she realized how insecure she came across halfway through the quote, tried to correct it with “but they’re ugly and I’m sexy, so I’m not jealous!”, and only made it worse. She should have gone with “I don’t envy them, because they look unhealthy” instead, to not sound like a shallow and insecure high-school girl.

“but they’re ugly and I’m sexy, so I’m not jealous!”, were did she say that???

Maybe I took some liberty with my paraphrasing, but isn’t that basically what she’s saying? When she’s talking about hollywood-girls being too thin, “skinny fat”, and having a lot of cellulite, I assume she thinks that doesn’t look good. And she is obviously very strong herself, which she says is sexy. I’m not saying I don’t agree with her, but in this context it just comes across like she felt the need to pick on other girls bodies to compensate for her own insecurity. Which I’m sure most of us do in our head – saying it out loud, and… Read more »

I have no idea who this woman is but her quote simply made me want to roll my eyes. The ‘cheeseburger’ reference, along with its sandwich equivalent is the most overused ‘insult’ in the book, not to mention that it’s totally absurd and ignorant. When people make statements like these, I find their feigned care for those with supposed eating disorders rather irksome- I highly doubt that they’re so concerned about others’ health that they feel a moral obligation to feed them, so they can get better. Secondly, if someone does have an eating disorder it’s not as though a… Read more »

I agree that being strong is sexy and beautiful, but I don’t like the rest of her quote. She sounds mean and insecure. And cellulite can be genetic, I know professional athletes who have some and I know people who never exercise, eat unhealthy and don’t have any.

I’m sorry but for those of you who don’t work in the fashion industry, you should know, people don’t eat. They literally starve themselves to b skinny. It’s cutthroat and competitive and is very image driven. I’ve intern for New York Model Management and Prada as a Marketing intern and let me tell you, the things I saw made me sick to my stomach. I can’t believe the length people go to stay a skinny minnie.

C
Guest

Blah, blah, blah, why is it so ard for you average people to believe that some of us are naturally thin. Keep on dieting & starvingn, people.

C
Guest

I’m still wanting to know, why is everybody focusing on Ed.s when most people are overweight. I’ve never met a girl with an e.d but I’ve met many many big women. Even when running on the trail the women are talking on their phones or sitting on the benches, I rarely see thin women.

Sisi
Guest
Sisi

What the hell? What an ignorant comment. Yes, there are MANY overweight people but just because you haven’t met a person with an ED does NOT mean that they don’t exist! Not to mention that most people who suffer from an ED tend to hide their illness quite well. I have a friend who’s in a big modelling agency and yes, people in this industry are very much weight-obsessed. But that’s just the fashion industry-while there certainly IS a lot of pressure on actors/singers/etc to be slim, I don’t think things are that bad.

C
Guest

Reading my comment again, I do agree it was pretty ignorant. I don’t know many people, don’t really have friends, so I was just talking through my a–, as usual.
Sorry.

Guest

it’s not that it’s hard to believe but it’s more of the fact that it’s a small percentage. My friend Jasmine is a gorgeous girl and very naturally petite and skinny (at her heaviest she weighs 102 lbs) and the girl eat whatever she wants. I’m more bringing up the fact that there are so many who strive to b that way when many aren’t built that way. It’s just sad that’s all and that’s the standard that is in the industry that I work in.

A cheeseburger is not a damned cure-all, can people seriously stop with the “cheeseburger” comments? Why do people think that they are entitled to put down thin women? It’s not right to body shame overweight or underweight people, regardless of why they look the way they do. People should be allowed to live their lives and look as they wish to, who is she to judge?

She sounds bitter and insecure, but what she said is exactly the same kind of thing that gets said by many people who comment on this site. Some of the people complaining about her comment, have skinny bashed themselves many a time on here. Maybe you should practice what you preach..

HB
Guest

It’s where your size is “skinny,” so you’re really thin and wear like, a 2, but your body composition has more fat than muscle, so you’re kind of fluffy. It’s pretty normal, I think. I see it a lot.

Shailene
Guest

Just another way that we can now call even the skinniest girls FAT, and get away with it like it’s a friggin’ medical term. Yay!

It’s basically just a more offensive way to say someone is soft or untoned. I’ve heard it used to describe excess fat around the organs of thin people, but no way I’d take a health professional seriously if they used the term “skinny-fat”.

Nádia Sepúlveda
Guest

Ouch, she was really mean here! She is totally skinny bashing! Some people are indeed born slim, not everyone starves in order to be like that! The “cheeseburger” comments are really hurtful to hear if you’ve been struggling to get more weight all your life…people tend to forget the other half!
Also, I don’t know how much she weights, but she seems rather “normal” to me, does she think she’s overweight or something? ‘Cause I don’t see it in these pictures. At all.

avb

i dig it. She looks radiant and confident. Even though I would personally prefer to be slimmer, she still looks great and epitomizes confidence. It would have been nice if her comment was more inspiring for boosting confidence rather than poking fun at women without it.

I don’t understand why people think it’s appropriate to tell skinny girls to “eat a cheeseburger” but not ok to tell a larger person to “eat a salad”. There are many ways to be healthy. Models such as Adriana Lima and Isabella Goulart work out just as hard as she does to look skinny.

5’10, 160Lb Right Here. I’m An Actor And Although I Get Told Often That I Am A Beautiful Girl, It Is Difficult To Be Around These Tiny, Skinny Girls. I Love My Height And I Would Never Trade It, But Sometimes Its Hard Not To Feel “Big” And In Todays Society, Big Often Equates Fat. Shes Not Being Bitter Or Insensitive, She Is Insecure Because Of Comparing Herself To Girls Half Her Height And Consequently Half Her Weight. I Get It.

Haha. I wanted to assert the importance of every word… no, for some reason my phone capitalizes every word in some text boxes. I didn’t have the patience to fix it. Although I’m sure there are fashion models, it is certainly not “full” of them. Most of the women of Hollywood are very tiny; height and otherwise. However, I was more referring to a lifetime of being surrounded with girls who are half her (my) height. Fashion models don’t typically roam the halls of high school. And your point only serves to further support mine that although she is not… Read more »
