While most celebs take great pains to have a slim and trim body, there are some who just can’t resist eating. The only good thing is that sometimes the movies do need fat people. However, in general, fatties do not get many roles nor do they have a long future in Hollywood. The directors and producers have way too many pretty and sexy thin girls to pick from.
Here are a few celebs who have a pretty face but were once told to lose a few kilos of loose fat hanging around their waistline. Some of then listened to their agent, lost weight and continued to do well in Hollywood. Those who did not listen to their agents claimed that they loved the plus body size- but have no career in Hollywood.
1. Amber Tamblyn
Amber Tamblyn at age 21 had a great start in the movie ‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.’ But despite great reviews, she could not get more roles. Then she listened to her agent who said to her, ‘You have a real choice here.
You can either be Nicole Kidman or you can be a character actress.’ So she started to go to the gym and the rest is history. Today she is a very successful actress and is fully aware that being fat in Hollywood is taboo.
2. Misty Copeland
Misty Copeland struggled with excess weight as a teenager. Even though she was the American Ballet theaters’ first African American principal dancer, she was told to lose weight or pack up her bags. The good thing is that she knew what she wanted in life- a career in ballet- so she started to exercise and today looks gorgeous.
Jennifer Lawrence was never really obese but had gained a few pounds when she first started in Hollywood. During an interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK she mentioned, “Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight. They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet.”
That made her determined to look great and she is one of the most successful female celebs in the world of entertainment. Today Jennifer does not take flake from anyone about weight; recently she stated, “If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet,’ I’m like, ‘You can go f–k yourself.’”

Kelly Clarkson, the former American Idol winner, used to have a great figure until she gave birth to a daughter. Then she quickly gained weight and was twice the size of Oprah. Everyone criticized her about her weight gain but she did not let the criticism get to her.
She has refused to go on a diet but has made some effort to exercise. She has made millions with her music and really doesn’t care what others think.
5. Tyra Banks
Tyra Banks, when she first began her modeling career, was often turned down because of her large hips. To make things worse she was called ‘grasso’ while trying to put on a dress in Milan. And that painful comment motivated her to lose weight and today she looks trim and slim- but her cheapness has stayed the same.
