It seems that a day cannot go by at the moment with one celebrity or another talking about their diet and the fact that they have either lost weight or are hoping to lose weight. Now, it is the turn of The Help actress Octavia Spencer, who has revealed that she is hoping to lose about another stone, just so that she feels better in her own body.
Spencer explained, "I'm not trying to be a thin mint. I'm just trying to be healthy and look good for me. So another 15 pounds and I will be fine. It's our society that has told women and continues to tell them that when you reach a certain age, you are no longer valuable. When you reach a certain weight, you are no longer valuable."
She added, "I'm not healthy at this weight. I think anytime you have too much around the middle then there's a problem." It is good to see that some of the larger actors and actresses are making a change to become healthy and live better but it is also a shame that some of them take it too far and end up sending the wrong message to people who look up to them. Hopefully Octavia Spencer knows the limit and where to stop.
