Christina Hendricks in Harper's Bazaar: "Diets Were Never a Big Deal."

A Healthy Bite: Christina Hendricks


"My mother never said to lose weight. Diets were never a big deal. My mom was always beautiful and voluptuous and curvy, and I always thought she was gorgeous."

— Christina Hendricks talks to Harper's Bazaar about the postive message of body image she received growing up. Since rising to fame in Mad Men, Christina has become an unofficial icon for curvy women, but Très wonders if the body talk is too much.

Hollywood is ruining body images.

I think it's sad that any woman that's got an ounce of fat on her gets asked by everyone in the media: "Oh, so what's it like being a woman with curves??" Most of those women probably think they look fine the way they are, but then they become aware that people think they are "curvy", aka fat in the industry. Then they feel like they have to lose weight.

I think the body talk is too much- in regards to all these celebrities. First off, this is so typical and cliche. How many "curvy" actresses praise their own figures then turn around a year or two later and drop weight. Ex: Kelly Osborne, Jennifer Hudson. I am not really offended by the weight loss, and I think its far better to see people trying to become healthy with this obesity problem the country has. Unless this lady is also claiming to still work-out and eat right and all the other important crap, I don't really have an interest in what she says. I just read the most disturbing article about how in denial people are in regard to the weight, and I feel all this self acceptance, embracing our curves talk just makes the denial worse. No, I am not saying we should promote self hate, but maybe we should just stop talking about body love-period. Let's talk about fitness, health, and also becoming better people, mind, body and spirit. I rather see someone glamorize learning how to speak a new language or philanthropy than loving their "curvy" figure. I guess I'm just over this whole body chit chat thing.
