10 Celebrities who were forced to lose weight for a role.
We like to think that celebrities got to where they are because they’re so obviously unlike the rest of us. Aside from talent and hard work, they’re blessed with the genetic lottery of looking so good. But for a lot of Hollywood executives, this isn’t enough. So many celebrities have almost lost out on roles and entire careers just because of one thing: their weight. For a Hollywood executive or studio president, there seems to be no such thing as too thin. Should weight be a deciding factor in who gets the role? For Hollywood at the moment, the answer is yes. Both male and female stars have gotten the stick for not losing enough weight or being thin enough. From veterans like Kate Winslet to newcomers like Hayley Atwell, no star is safe from the dreaded “loser e more weight!” command from producers and directors. Keep watching to see who else had to succumb to Hollywood’s strict weight rules. Tell us what you think in the comments!

Lilly Collins wanted that role so bad, because of previously having an eating disorder she was proud to step forward and help teenagers through the movie. She was never really worried, they where going to just use movie magic to make her look the way she did, but she wanted to go all the way. Also why can't you pronounce names right??
Kate Winslet wasn’t overly thin in Titanic, but she looked amazing! Its not all about the number on the scale rather your body type and how much your particular body was meant to hold... Although (and I’ll probably get hate for this but it’s just what I thought) I did think that in Suicide Squad Margot Robbie should have been more toned for playing such a criminal badass...imo
Don’t blame Hollywood! if you want the job you need to look like how the character from the story is. There are fat, skinny, tall, short, athletic types depends on the character of the story they are gonna portray. If the movie calls for a big person then they need to hire a big person for that exact role..same as if they need to thin down Kate because the Character was described as skinny” If you dont wanna slim down then ofcourse its up to you if you wanna accept the job. Its part of artistry!
These are the standards that makes young girls depressed everyday and sometimes attempting suicide. Some go for very strict diets to look like these stars Hollywood presents (stars who represent in no way the actual young girl), it's sad because I believe every shape is beautiful. I hate the fact that models have to be skinny (some really look like they gonna die), I mean are those dresses meant for skinny girls only?
Unless they're playing the role of a fitness enthusiast, superhero, ninja or whatever, I really don't understand why they have to look slim and athletic. Regular people aren't all fit or skinny, so why does the girl in a romcom need to be a size 0? I prefer when the actors are of all different sizes fat- and muscle-wise. But nowadays you rarely see a "bigger girl" (not big) in movies that isn't bullied or teased for their weight. I don't think I'm the only one that feels a wider array of body shapes and sizes would make the movie feel more realistic. Just look at society. Not all couples are the same body type and there are almost always a variety in groups of friends.
This is why I dislike hollywood and mainstream media. Definition of beauty has degraded. Somehow they set a standard for general population on what beautiful means. Come on tabloid gossiping and trash talking magazines in every grocery store. Hollywood is full of hypocrisy and filled with people that suffer from personality disorders such as Borderline and NPD narcissistic personality, narcissism has been shoved down our throats. Greed and narcissism has been on the raise in the last decade in the United States and Canada this is just ridiculous and gotta change but it won’t change unless people will wake up and take responsibility for their own choices and actions.
This is how i see it, we say we have gun problem yet we promoting guns in movies and violent video games.
We say it’s unfair that women seen as sex objects yet we advertise sex and sexualize women making them an objects for marketing purposes and that’s included porn industry.
I guess many will continue living in denial that’s easier than to be confronted with reality.
Margot's always been thin, and fit. She had to workout for SS because she had to do crazy stunts and Harley has supposedly a gymnast background, and like any blockbuster, it takes a lot of energy and muscle to do. So, no. She didn't loose weight for SS, she had to build muscle and be fitter than before she did the movie. How can you say Hollywood wanted her to loose weight with WOWS and Focus, and all the other movies she made, I really don't understand.
This is bullshit. The entire cast of Suicide Squad had to work out 3 hours a day - not to lose weight, to get strong. They were training to fight, martial arts and weightlifting. Your info is way off the mark.
I don't understand, "Hollywood is demanding that you lose weight." Hollywood who? Why not just name the people at the studio or agents or whoever making these demands. Saying that "Hollywood wants me to lose weight", keeps whoever is making these demands in the dark and free to keep making them.
Hollywood execs are either closeted gay men or stringy-haired heifers who need a pork chop around their neck to get dogs to play with them, so natch, they're going to hate young actresses who are reasonably attractive and shapely to begin with.EDIT - 5:45 WTF? Emily Blunt is maybe a 6/10. It would be more believable that he couldn't get someone like Sara Rue, Brie Larson, or Margot Robbie.
I'm not even watching this bullshit video, I just thought I'd make a comment so other people who may want to view it can save their time. I cnt speak on the rest of the vid, but the Margot Robbie thumbnail is TOTAL bullshit. That pic is straight from her time in the I Tonya film, her hairstyle is exactly the same as in the picture and the dated clothes are also a giveaway. She may have gained a small amt of weight for it, but it probably was a lot of padding as well. Either way she def did not look like tht in the beginning of her career and was made to lose weight fr her career. This video is TOTAL bullshit dnt waste ur time1
Sad.. they all looked amazing and didn’t need to loose weight .. size 2 is very tiny to begin with and anything smaller than size 2 doesn’t really look that good I don’t think, or at least doesn’t look healthy .. glad I’m not an actress ..lol..and Jason segal is sexy at any weight ❤️
Oh my god this is so infuriating how are any of them overweight?? Hollywood casting rules HAVE to change, it should be a matter of talent before anything else..
Except for "to the bone" none of these roles would have needed the actress to be skinny, be more realistic for christ sake nobody's gonna think oh I'm not seeing this movie cause the character isn't skinny enough! Those women are perfectly healthy
These actresses and everyone else says girls power and they will stay strong, body positivity blah blah blah.. then they still lose the 20 pounds lol 😑 Just accept that being skinny is and always be important. Everyone does it. 🙃
The Genius Who Invented Economics Blogging Reveals How He Got Everything Right And Whats Coming Next.
Bill McBride, Calculated Risk The economics blogosphere was invented in early 2005 by a retired technology executive in Southern California named Bill McBride.
Thank God for that, because his blog, Calculated Risk, has been an invaluable and influential read for numerous reasons.
For one thing, its always been right. In its early days, when we all started reading it, it was way ahead of the curve in terms of warning about the housing bubble, horrible bank lending practices, and generally the economic collapse. From his perch in Newport Beach, CA he could see first hand the people taking out loans worth 10x their income, filling their Inland Empire garages with Harleys and Boats that they obviously couldnt afford.
But unlike many other bloggers who made a name during the crisis, he didnt stick with the doom and gloom message. He started making arguments for a GDP rebound in 2009.
Then in February of this year, he made his most important call: He announced: The Housing Bottom Is Here . McBride had officially come full circle from his days warning of housing collapse. Today, 8 months later, the housing bottom is becoming general consensus.
In addition to being correct on the economy, Calculated Risk has imparted the internet with other good practices, such as dutifully charting out the data, and examining data in an impartial, apolitical, non-hysterical manner.
