i'm kind of bummed about toni collete (colette, collette...too lazy to google). i always thought she was one of the few good and attractive actresses who got really great parts despite not being the hollywood anorexic ideal. but no. on the special features of in her shoes (v. cute by the way) she said it was really hard for her to gain weight for this role. i'm completely blown away. i loved her believing that she represented normal women and did so much in an industry which so vehemently shuns reality and those that represent it. but then it's not her job to represent the fat girls who yearn to see themselves reflected in media, it's her job to go to work and make money just like anyone else. i, myself, take pride in representing fat girl bank tellers everywhere...but then that's me.
ofcourse, i still love her. she's still ridiculously talented and adorable and i love anyone who gets to tell hugh grant she's not attracted to him on film. but she's skinny. i can't believe she put on 25 pounds for that role and she's still more svelte than anyone i know in real life. damn it, i need a job where i get paid to put on 25 pounds. she swore she'd never get fat for a role again, but as they say the proof is in the pudding. if there's a shortage of fat girls in hollywood i'm on the first plane.
