Julie Bowen Called Fat, Says More Magazine

Julie Bowen Once Called Fat — Have You Been Called Out For Weight?

Julie Bowen was once called fat; the Modern Family actress tells More magazine that it happened during her first professional role as an actress during the early '90s. And, to make matters worse, it was a costar who did the name calling: "Between scenes, [a costar] would say, 'Can you believe how fat you are?'" Luckily, Julie was able to keep confident by finding support in the show's crew.

No matter how thick your skin, name-calling hurts — especially when it's in regards to your appearance. And it doesn't help that societal pressure equates looking your best to being thin.

Have any of you had a similar experience to Julie?

a number of times - usually for losing too much weight, and once for gaining too much (though I was only maybe 5kg/10lb over my normal weight - i was still withing the healthy and normal range for my height) If I gain weight, only my parents will say something, when I lose too much, everybody feels entitled to but in.
