Jennifer Lawrence Lost Weight to Play Mystique?

Jennifer Lawrence mystique new x menFlog and chastise me all you want for talking about Jennifer Lawrence‘s weight, but I’m one of the good guys. I talk about it because I can’t believe people actually think she’s “overweight” or big in any way and aren’t just saying it to be mean. (Need I remind you of formerly respected New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis, who wondered why Lawrence and her “womanly figure” were cast as starving Katniss Everdeen.)

The internet is abuzz after X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer tweeted a photo of naked J-Law back in the blue Mystique paint she last donned in 2011.

Everyone’s like “Oh my god, she lost weight, the criticism is getting to her.” OR it’s because she just went through a breakup (with First Class co-star Nicholas Hoult).  Continue reading “Jennifer Lawrence Lost Weight to Play Mystique?”

Lady Gaga Is A Show-Off, Lost 25 Pounds In 7 Days

Photos from Tuesday, September 18th showed the world a slightly larger version of Lady Gaga than we’re used to.

Yesterday, Gaga posted skinny pictures of herself wearing nothing but yellow underwear (with messages like “Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15”) to LittleMonsters.com shortly after confessing that she’d gained 25 pounds from eating too much Italian food.

Some speculated that she was pregnant, while others suggested that the weight gain was photoshopped, or a publicity stunt…

The only thing I’m confused by is her decision to not become the spokeswoman for Weight Watchers, Hydroxycut, or TrimSpa. I mean, as a celebrity, why not make a little money off of your diet? You give them the before and after photos, they throw a few thousand dollars at you.  Continue reading “Lady Gaga Is A Show-Off, Lost 25 Pounds In 7 Days”

If The Mom From ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape’ Can Lose Weight, So Can You

A few days ago I posted a Tweet about how I feel like Johnny Depp and retarded Leonardo DiCaprio’s mom in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape every time I watch track and field events at the Olympics.

Little did I know, the obese couch-ridden mother (played by Darlene Cates) from Gilbert Grape who died after trying to go up the stairs, recently lost 245 pounds. She still weights 331 pounds but is looking to shed more pounds after overcoming diabetes, undergoing four surgeries, and having a near-death experience at the hospital. Good for her! I’ve revised my track joke to:

“Every time I watch track and field events I feel like the mom in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape before she lost the weight.” Still pretty bad (unfunny and offensive) huh.  Continue reading “If The Mom From ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape’ Can Lose Weight, So Can You”

Paula Deen Responds To Hateful Hating Diabetes Haters Who Hate Her

Paula Deen talked to both People and AP about the public’s reaction to her being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, mentioning “hate” both times.

To People: “I was surprised by the depth of hate, this is not something I chose. I had been given lemons and I had to try to make lemonade – without sugar!”

To Associated Press: “I think a few people who have access to a TV camera and ink kind of wanted to hate on me for coming down with something.”

I would never diss on Paula for having diabetes. I myself fear that I will one day contract it after touching one of my many pet bags of sugar.

When I first read that people were hating on her I thought she was saying it was because she was skinnier now (she’s lost 30 pounds, her goal is 45) and I’m angry because ‘Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Not Fat’ is a better title.  Continue reading “Paula Deen Responds To Hateful Hating Diabetes Haters Who Hate Her”
