Say What? Alec Baldwin on Skinny Minnies in Hollywood

"Women today are so skinny. If I did a love scene with them, I would crush them. If I did a love scene with Renee, I would kill her."


30 Rock star Alec Baldwin on why he's glad he doesn't get cast as the love interest in movies anymore. Baldwin was hosting Elle magazine's annual Women in Hollywood dinner and awards show and made these remarks after the famously svelte Zellweger was honored.

Thank you, hiding! Everytime someone is labeled as too skinny on here, someone comes up with the obesity thing. Just because you're saying Renee is too skinny doesn't mean you don't know what a healthy weight looks like. All these actresses pay way too much attention on exercise and diet. It's not healthy to be so focused on that. I am very healthy and I still got a little meat on my bones. Super skinny does not equal healthy.Oh, and Renee is not naturally skinny! Someone who manages to gain weight as fast as she did for the Bridget Jones movies obviously has to pay close attention to her diet.

I agree with spacekatgal. Most of the women in Hollywood I think look great. Sure there are the exceptions on both sides of the scale - some that could stand to add a few lbs and some that could stand to lose a few lbs. But as a rule I think the majority of them look great.

I agree with Alec! If you think Renee looks healthy then IMO there is something wrong with your eyes. There is a difference between a healthy skinny weight (which a lot of actresses are) and the scary skinny (like Renee and Teri Hatcher). I especially hate it when the scary skinny ones try to claim that they are naturally that way, such BS.

I think that most men prefer women that aren't boney and with a bit of curves. Not obese and not anorexic, just healthy.

there are a lot of too skinny starlets out there. but i really don't think that many of them are TOO skinny. the only ones that come to mind right now are LiLo and all the ladies on Desperate Housewives. there are def more, i just can't think of them at the moment.i don't think renee is TOO skinny. but i do find her disgusting for other reasons.

Can we stop referring to skinny and fat people as though some sort of grotesque alien lifeforms? I'm sick of these skinny vs fat debates.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Maybe Alec prefers women with some meat on their bones. When did people become only skinny or obese? There is such a thing as average last time I checked. There are far more average people out there than obese or skinny.

I dont think these women have an eating disorder, I do however think they have issues exercise and body image.

Another thing, I don't want or need to hear a man validate a women (even if he is kidding) in this way.Besides, a guy could say he isn't into "skinny chicks" but maybe he wants a specific body shape (hourglass, apple, pear) and curvy types or whatever. That isn't good...that isn't any better. He could still be making another women feel bad about herself for not being like Kim Kardashian or something. And many men thinking the opposite of one thing can affect what is depicted in magazines and the media and you just end up swapping one image for the other. It's not better or effective way to deal with anything. As country we need to live in a more balanced way, eat better and exercise and accept all different body shapes. As long as your healthy it's should matter if your very think or slightly curvy as long as you meet other health markers and we lower obesity rates.:)

Oh, and on Renee Zellweger. I don't know if she has a problem or not, she is a hardcore runner. Let's say for sure she doesn't. Comparing her to Jerry Maguire days is not the best or most effective way to judge. It's possible that since then she has become MORE fit, not more sick.

I was watching Beeltejuice last night and thinking the same thing dannysf. lol.While Renee doesn't look so skinny in that picture to be too thin, it is refreshing to hear a guy say that skinny isn't always attractive.
