Celebrities Can Flip on Weight Issues

Leading up to the 2004 presidential election, many of Senator John Kerry's detractors accused him of "flip-flopping" on issues including a spending bill, and he ultimately lost the election.

Celebrities may not have to worry about their inconsistencies and turnarounds derailing political careers, so there is less at stake when stars flip-flop on their weight and their opinions of their body image.

In no aspect of a celeb's heavily scrutinized existence is changing the mind on an issue more prevalent, perhaps, than the area of body image.

Entertainment and celebrity gossip magazines constantly feature celebrities who have gained weight, lost weight or simply have toned up an already svelte physique.

The latest issue of V Magazine is its size issue and features plus-size models Candice Huffine, Marquita Pring, Michelle Olson, Tara Lynn, and Kasia P. on its pages wearing enticing outfits and in some photos nothing at all.

Photographer Solve Sundsbo's spread in the magazine is one of the first significant plus-size feature in high fashion, according to The Independent.
If this issue reaches the public in a positive way it could spell the end of women being expected to have no curves and no pounds to spare.

Plenty of "plus-size" actresses and singers become popular, but press coverage typically focuses on their weight, shape and confidence about the two.

Kelly Clarkson Changes Shape

Kelly Clarkson became the first winner of American Idol in 2002 and while she’s had many hit songs and remains one of the most popular pop artists around, she still is plagued by comments about her robust body.

In the September issue of Self, Clarkson said she is content with her body.

"When people talk about my weight, I'm like, 'You seem to have a problem with it; I don't. I'm fine!'"

Clarkson's motivation for exercising isn't to lose weight. "I do it totally for my psyche," she explains. "I'm much better when those endorphins are going. It's a release. And I also love food, so there's a payoff!"

She says she doesn’t spend much time focusing on a diet.

“I'm never trying to lose weight – or gain it. I'm just being," Clarkson said.

Ugly Betty star America Ferrera is another celebrity whose image plays a major aspect in her career. Her breakout role was in the 2002 film Real Women Have Curves, in which she and other women participated in a scene which showed realistic bodies in lingerie.

Redheads Like Christina Hendricks Have More Fun, But Still Are Scrutinized

Even Lindsay Lohan was criticized for her weight, when in 2004 she appeared with a rotund face and fuller thighs. She lost a tremendous amount of weight and in more recent photos her vertebrae are visible.

In the show Mad Men, which features the slim actress January Jones, it is the curvaceous Christina Hendricks who garners more attention. The chesty redhead is given the opportunity to advertise her plush derriere and ample bosom in the many ‘60s-era wardrobe items on the show. She, fortunately for viewers, hasn’t changed her figure into anything less appealing.

Kim Kardashian Didn't Keep Up With Her Original Opinion

Kim Kardashian is famous for, as The Soup’s Joel McHale says, “having a big ass and a sex tape” and her curvy body and fuller, yet fit frame led her onto the pages of many magazines. The stories in these magazines make a point of indicating K-Dash’s full figure and for a while she proudly flaunted it, including on the cover of and inside Playboy in 2007.

After a QuickTrim commercial K-Dash is hearing criticism from fans.

Kim is finally addressing such talk. Appearing on Atlanta’s Q100 yesterday, she insisted she isn't really that thin, saying:

"I don't have a problem telling people, 'Hey, look, I have cellulite!' I do everything I can in my power to fix it. I never said cellulite was cute. But I have it. I embrace it, I'm okay with it!"

K-Dash and sister Klohe appeared in a QuikTrim commercial together in which Kim Kardashian is seen emerging from a swimming pool sporting a midriff which allows people to see her ribs pressing against the skin.

Before, Kardashian claims, "I just wasn't comfortable in a bikini.”

Kate Winslet starred in Titanic and was catapulted to fame … and scrutiny. She got the best of the press when she won a lawsuit against British tabloid publication The Daily Mail which stated she lied about exercising in the days leading up to the 2009 Academy Awards.

Winslet said the story left her feeling “distressed and embarrassed.”

"I strongly believe that women should be encouraged to accept themselves as they are, so to suggest that I was lying was an unacceptable accusation of hypocrisy," she said.
