I read this news story today & it absolutely disgusted me.
I understand fully the importance of aesthetics in the media - however this reeks of playground bullying...
Plus what really riles me is that these 'Image-Nazis' direct their bile almost soley at women
"... HEROES star ALI LARTER was once treated like an outcast on a film set after discovering how cruel Hollywood can be to an actress who gains weight.
The sexy star admits producers and directors stopped talking to her after she piled on the pounds while shooting a film on location.
She tells the new issue of Allure magazine, "The faxes went out from the producers and the director to my agents to my manager to call me and ask me to lose weight.
"I just remember sitting in my trailer hysterically crying from the embarrassment I felt about myself, my body - and that no one could talk to me directly." ...."
I don't really know or care who Ali Larter is - I don't even know if she's particularly overweight - but I do know that this is a pretty despicable way to treat a human being.
I think what's most insulting is the cowardly way they went about it...
"producers and directors stopped talking to her"
Seriously...?! Since when were eight year old girls directing movies...?
Were this any other industry they would have been slapped with some fat lawsuit for workplace bullying
Hollywood is the best!
