Remember this version of Hudson?
I didn’t really know what to title this article but I wanted to address something that I find to be quite amusing. In the last year or two I’ve seen an amazingly hot Jennifer Love Hewitt in our midst. To recent day she’s appeared in more photoshoots than I feel like I’ve seen her in. She’s been wearing lower cut outfits than I’ve ever seen her in. And to be honest she looks as good as I’ve ever seen her.
But let us not forget that it was only a few years ago that pictures surfaced of a Jennifer Love Hewitt that did not look like the one you see today. It was a bikini clad Hewitt that looked like she needed to lose more than a few pounds.
Does anyone remember how she responded when the internet was buzzing about this in 2007/2008?…..
“I’ve sat by in silence for a long time now about the way women’s bodies are constantly scrutinized,” the 28-year-old actress writes on her Web site. “To set the record straight, I’m not upset for me, but for all the girls out there that are struggling with their body image.”
“A size 2 is not fat! Nor will it ever be,” Hewitt responded in a post Thursday. “And being a size 0 doesn’t make you beautiful.”
“What I should be doing is celebrating some of the best days of my life and my engagement to the man of my dreams, instead of having to deal with photographers taking invasive pictures from bad angles.”
But did Jennifer Love celebrate this? Nope. Not at all. She went into hiding and clearly she was 100% bothered by all of this. I don’t even think this is an argument. And it’s not like Jennifer Love Hewitt is the only one either. Does anyone remember Jennifer Hudson in her bigger days?
In those times Hudson was defending her body image and saying how comfortable she was with her own body. Really? Then why in the last year have you made comments that the role of “Precious” was “too fat for me.” Why are you on every single Weight Loss commercial? What the hell is going on here? Why didn’t you just stay the same weight?
Answer? Because these and other women clearly care and they should care. And I’m not just talking about health here. Health is a given and being severely overweight is a bad bad thing. I don’t have to go into that. However, I would like to go into Hollywood. Hollywood is a cruel place. It’s that simple. And it’s extremely rare for an overweight woman to make it in Hollywood. I’m not saying it’s right or wrong. I’m saying that’s the way it is.. But my real point here is that there’s no shame in being honest. There’s nothing wrong with admitting that you don’t like being called fat. That you’re going to try and lose weight.
Instead, you look like an ass by defending women’s images everywhere one year, and then the next year advocate being healthy and looking sexy. I just wish Hewitt and Hudson would own up to that. Just own up to the fact that you were fat then and it pissed you off. I don’t think it’s that difficult.
That’s all I really wanted to say. That and Hewitt and Hudson look pretty damned good now.
