I’ve been meaning to read this book for quite some time. But yesterday a friend of mine suggested a movie, which turned out to be the movie based from this book. So of course, you can imagine I was quite excited and checked the trailer out.
The movie looks fun. Probably won’t be any close as good as the book, but it still looks enjoyable. I mean it seems quite predictable but still.
The problem starts with this…
The actress chosen for this role is Mae Whitman;
Now, can someone please explain to me how this girl is meant to be a DUFF? She is neither fat nor ugly. I am sick and tired of Hollywood portraying girls as fat when they aren’t. It sends the wrong message, not only to young girls, but to women and men. So what if you don’t have loooong tanned legs, skinny cheekbones and a tiny waist? Does that immediately classify you as fat? This actress has a round-ish face and isn’t freaking anorexic… Does that make her fat?
This is making me sick. People see this and actually really think she isn’t skinny, and that girl’s need to be skeletons and a size zero to be pretty. Because you know, looking like this is freeeeaking amazing!
Oh well… It’s not because of the way she looks, it’s because of health reasons!
F**k you and your healthy reasons. If someone doesn’t want to do sports and eat cake, then why not? What’s wrong with that? We’re all going to die sometime, might as well make this ride enjoyable and do what the hell we want. I know people that do sports every single day of their life and only eat really healthy stuff… and then died from lung cancer. And a man who smokes a pack of cigarettes a day and half a bottle of whiskey dies at the age of 112. Yes, of course one lifestyle is more prone to leading to health risks. We get that. But if someone is happy, why not? As long as they understand the consequences, leave everyone alone.
If a 15 year old girl is fat because she enjoys eating, just let her eat. Yeah, I know this is a touchy subject. But maybe if people didn’t care so much about all this crap, and everyone just chilled out and let everyone do what they wanted to (always taking into account that you can do what you want without risking other people’s security) there’d be less shit going on in this world, and maybe less people starving themselves to look like a stick.
I am sorry but Hollywood needs to change their attitude. This girl is neither fat nor ugly. And if people really think that way, they need to get their head checked.
I’ll never win this argument, or change the world. But honestly, I don’t care what people think about me. I don’t want to be like everyone else, and I honestly believe that every single woman on this planet is beautiful. No matter what colour skin she has, the shape of her eyes, the size of her waist, or her sexuality. Same goes for men. The important thing is the beauty within us.
So yeah, F**k you Hollywood.
