I know there is a lot said in the media about celebrities being too thin and being a bad example and yes some are but at the same time I have sympathy for these underweight stars because it seems that people think it is OK to criticise them for how they look. The magazines will print things like "Top 10 Skinniest Celebrities" but how do you think people would react if they said "Top 10 Fattest Celebrities"? I can admit that it is not nice to see people's bones sticking out same as I dont like to see a lot of fat either. I think some people look nice slim but not ill looking because this is what suits there body shape and some people look best with a bit more fat on them. I am only 5ft 1 so I look fat if I am very heavy but someone who is taller could get away with my weight and look OK. I like Kelly Brook's body because she is not too thin and has curves. I hope to have a body similar to this. I am shorter than her so will not look quite like that but I have no desire diet into anything below a size 8. I dont want my bones to stick out.

Hi! Yeah I do agree that most celebrities or people who are very visible can have a significant impact on common people who see them. There is always a double standard when it comes to show business. Their face and body after all are their capital in continuing in the business and trying to make a name for themselves. I guess it is more than just 50% being gorgeous in the industry. Being the normal size for most people would just be fine but for celebrities its going to be hard to be in the normal range and still thrive in the business. Personally, I also prefer to be a normal size and I like the way I am.
