In the last few years in Hollywood, the trend has been to accept yourself and your body. Actresses no longer lose weight, or at least don't do it because the director thinks so. They often talk about it in interviews and almost always emphasize that this was not always the case … The BrautyHack editors recall the years when even the slimmest film stars were dependent on the opinions of other people.
In a recent interview with Allure, the actress revealed that she first faced pressure over her figure at the age of 16. Then Anne was approved for the role in the series "Be yourself", but hinted that now she needs to keep herself in shape.
“At the age of 16, I heard the phrase:“Congratulations, you got the role. We are not saying that you urgently need to lose weight, but try not to gain weight. " And it actually sounded like I needed to go on a diet,”Hathaway admitted.
The actress also noted that she likes the new trend in cinema - to be herself, although sometimes this, according to her, goes to the other extreme.
Recently, the model and actress became a mother for the first time, and a couple of days ago she shot for the cover in Health without retouching. By this, the celebrity wanted to show that she was not shy about showing herself after giving birth as she is.
“I am not one of those women who demonstrate perfect abs almost the day after the birth of a child. I hardly returned to training. It was very hard,”Keith told reporters. And then she noted that at the beginning of her career she was afraid to gain weight lines and become unclaimed. And this despite the fact that before working in Hollywood, she never had complexes about her body.
“I grew up in Florida where the girls wore bikinis all the time. Then I did not even think that I had some other type of figure. But when I started working as a model, there were people who said that my uniforms were too big … At the beginning of my career it was scary not to fit into jeans. It took me a long time to change my thoughts,”Upton shared in an interview.
Kate once told reporters that while working on the film "Titanic" the directors asked her to lose a few pounds in order to look better in the frame. And then such comments, she said, were the norm in Hollywood. However, Winslet never took them seriously, much less developed complexes. Only in the early 2000s, having given birth to a child, the actress herself decided to pull herself together and start losing weight. But not for myself, but to meet the standards of Hollywood.
“I hate myself for the fact that I have to monitor my body just in order to successfully pursue a career,” she admitted then.
In recent interviews, the actress has ceased to link her desire to be in shape and work in the cinema. Moreover, Kate did not like it when her body was made slimmer in the photo for the magazine with the help of retouching. As a result, the editor had to release "real" footage of Winslet.
In a conversation with the editors of Harper's Bazaar, Jennifer said that she was never persuaded to lose weight. And if the director hinted that he would shoot her only if she lost weight, she simply refused contracts.
“Everyone around is so used to being thin that when a woman is of normal weight, she is immediately considered seductive. But this position is much closer to me,”said Lawrence.
The actress also noted that it would be better to be full in the frame, because the screen adds an extra 5 kg, than it will be on diets and look exhausted in real life.
In an interview with The Edit magazine, the actress said that filming Sex and the City was not easy. Moreover, the main characters had to face pressure about their figure. “We weren't allowed to get better, it was being closely monitored,” Nixon said. And this despite the fact that each of the stars of the project was already naturally slim.
Cynthia also said that she was happy about the changes in the film industry. “I like that now, when choosing an actress, directors look at talent, not appearance,” she said.
The actress, best known for the series Pretty Little Liars, said that at the beginning of her career, she also had to hear not the most pleasant words addressed to her. Many directors have hinted that if Ashley wants to be successful, she needs to lose a few pounds.
“But I've always said that I feel great in my weight. And I'm not going to change the second size to the first,”Benson said in an interview with Health magazine.
