|Natalie Portman stars in "Waif in Tights"|
The thing that kills me is that she was paid to get rail thin. She had a full year of doing nothing else but exercising and not eating. PAID MILLIONS. I think I could tell my appetite to get lost for that.
I have often wondered what it would be like to have a private chef and personal trainer at my disposal everyday. Would I still cheat? Would I still go thru the drive thru at Taco Johns and eat my Nachos Navidad in the parking lot?
Look at Valerie Bertinelli and Jennifer Hudson etc.... A.) They are PAID spokeswomen for diet programs. They get a paycheck for using these systems. What do we get?? We get two extra points because we ran 18 miles on the treadmill today. B.) They also have nannies, personal assistants, personal trainers, chefs, etc. We ARE the caretakers, we are everyone else's personal assistants, we have to kick our own asses to get in shape, and we are the short order cooks. (I'm not bitter.)
So I say, lets leave our normal lives behind and move to Hollywood, get discovered, make millions and then we'll be the ones on the commercials saying "If I can do it, you can too!!"
