I am actually getting so mad at the people that think that this is extraordinary. Women do the exact same thing all the time but that isn’t factored into whether or not they are a good actress. Women get fit for movies: its seen as them working on their physique, good for them. Women get skinny for movies: no one notices because they are already “supposed” to be like that, good for them.
I don’t know about you, but I have never seen an average sized woman (150 pounds) in any big name films. I have never heard anyone say, “Oh she lost a lot of weight to get into character for that movie.”
This double standard is really starting to irritate me. I just have to tune people out because every time I try and explain this people just have no idea what I am talking about.
