Mississippi, you make a fantastic point. SJP is super teeny tiny, but her weight is never discussed. Regardless of Hil's weight, she always carries her self off with an air of sophistication and intelligence beyond her years. She's not trashy, she keeps most of her personal life out of the spot light, and she is very close with her family. I think she is a great role model for who she is, forget what she looks like! "Party like a rock star, pound like a porn star, play like an all star!"

People criticise Hilary more, mississippigirl1, because she was heavier before and everyone remembers it. SJP wasn't always as skinny as she was in SatC but to remember her before then you'd have to remember her back in the 80s and even then I don't think anyone dubbed her 'chubby' the way the did Hilary. People seem to be fine with people being skinny so long as they've been that way for as long as they've been in the public eye. Unless you've been obese there seem to be a lot of examples of public criticism of previously 'chubby' girls becoming (and staying) skinny ones. There seems to be a presumption that they should stay in their place and stop trying to be something they're not. Which I find silly. And kind of annoying. Especially as the only difference between her and the other people is that they've been on a diet for longer, or any photos of them chubby aren't out in the public circle. I think Hil's too thin but that's because most people in the public eye are.

Okay, sorry to generalize, I'm sure not EVERYONE wants to look like SJP, but I've never heard anything negative about her weight.

Why is it so wrong for Duff to be the size she is when SJP is the same size and we all want to be just like her? Is it an age thing or what? I don't get it.

its so sad that female "celebrities" are made to feel that they need to be skinny to be popular and accepted and the pressure that the media put on them. It's strange that the guys don't appear to have the same pressures. I think she looks great and its refreshing to see her talk to openly about why/how she lost weight and that in the process she did become a little compulsive. Hopefully she is happy and in reality that's all that matters.

I think she's too thin now but not with respect to her contemporaries - and she isn't as thin as she was when she was with Joel. The way he went straight to Nicole Richie after they broke up, and she put on some much needed lbs always makes me wonder if he used to harrass her about her weight. It's also funny people saying she's not too thin now because of how she looks in a photo, when really we're comparing her to other people we've only every seen in photos. I believe the people who've seen her in person. I didn't believe that camera adding pounds thing until I saw a perfectly thin (4-6) girl look rounded in a photo when she really wasn't. I blame the critics for talking about her weight rather than her work, especially when guys get so much leniency in showbiz - even when they're actually overweight. Suits hide a lot of girth where guys are concerned.

A person can get too thin without developing an eating disorder. It's all about body dysmorphia, and listening to her, it doesn't sound like that was the case. She saw that she was too thin and did something about it. The body dysmorphis involved in anorexia and bulimia is that one doesn't see oneself as too thin, one sees oneself as not being thin enough. It's more than just a desire to look thin, it;s actually not seeing yourself as thin and creating a vicious circle because of this.

She's also just a kid. I think sometimes when we read about these people, we forget that some of them are just kids. Teenagers. And I don't know about y'all, but my weight fluctuated a good bit when I was a teenager. She's growing up, and has to do it with all these eyes on her. That can't be easy at all. The fact that she can say "there is/was a problem" raises her a couple of points in my eyes at least. There are so many out there who deny there is any problem at all, even when you see hipbones sticking out and ribcages.

All the blonds are going brown (Cameron Diaz, Charlize Theron,,etc). What's the deal with that?

I think if she was "anorexic" she would have had a harder time putting weight back on which she obliviously has done. People need to remember that there is more to anorexia then just starving yourself. There are soooo many psychological issues which make recovery difficult. She obiviously hasnt had a problem with putting weight and muscle on so I think saying she has an ED is a little over the top I actually like Hilary. She recently had like a two episode thing on MTV and it made me like her more. She is a hard worker and clearly doesnt get wrapped up in the hoopla that is Hollywood I think she looks good now. I love the brunette and slimmer Hil. Also it looks like she got her teeth filed down a bit which was a good choice.

There was a time when she looked too thin, but I'm glad she looks like she's gained a bit of weight. She looks fine now, and healthy.

She definately did have a time where she was too thin, but right now I think she looks healthy, toned, and has a good look on how to be healthy. Her dark hair looks really nice too.

I never thought I'd say that, but I'm really beginning to like Hilary Duff. I'm not a fan of her music or her movies, but I think she's a good role model for young girls. She's obviously not an anorexic, unlike Nicole Richie, she just decided to eat right. She seems mature and down-to-earth, some Hollywood starles should definitely take some cues from her (right Lindsay???)

zillah - I don't like rice much, even though I'm Asian, haha. And actually, if you're 10 pounds heavier in Hollywood, you do get scrutinized.

I think she is quite cute. She dresses appropriately too. She is quite mature for her age i think.

I think she looked alright when she was thinner and she looks nice now. The whole cutting out foods and watching what you eat is admirable. American are so overweight in general, and we all eat too much. I recently started counting the calories I eat in a day and I was so surprised at how much I eat. It was way over what I was supposed to eat to maintain my weight, not to lose. I'm Asian and I have to eat rice...I love it. Plain white rice...has a crap load of sometimes, I have to chose between rice and dessert...thats what you have to do. There is a whole industry out there whose goal is to get you to eat more. I think people judge a slightly under weight person more so than they would judge a slightly overweight person. If you weigh 10 lbs less than your recommended weight...people question if you are anorexic...and scrutinize your eating habits. But if you are 10lbs heavier than your recommended weight, they put you in an ad campaign and call it empowering!

I think she aged herself 10 or 15 years by losing all that weight and doing whatever she did to her teeth and jaw. She's still pretty but now looks really old for what she actually is - a teenage pop/music star.
