Too Fat For Hollywood

At a size 10, Romola Garai (Atonement, The Hour), gets airbrushed thinner when she appears in magazines, and she feels conflicted about it:

It’s difficult because if I refuse to do any magazines at all, my work, I think, would suffer in a very immediate way. But when I appear in these magazines, I know I’m being “trimmed”. I’m being airbrushed a lot.

And I know that people are accepting those images and are under the impression that that is really how my body looks, that I’m hairless and sexless and weigh 90 lbs. That really worries me. And I really don’t know what to do except talk about it.

Did you know Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games) is also too fat? We have a real actress obesity epidemic on our hands, people.
