I also find it funny how you say something and then list a ton of exceptions that ultimately contradict what you said in the first place. Something's not true if you can continue to list exceptions for it. You can't be successful in Hollywood if you're overweight unless you're Oprah, Rosie O'Donnell, Roseanne, Kathy Bates, etc etc etc. Do you not even realize what you're saying? What you're trying to say is that weight is directly relative to a woman's success in the world of acting. Just because the top paid TV and movie actresses are short on overweight woman does not mean a damn thing. You can't immediately jump to the conclusion that overweight women aren't successful just because of that list. That list means nothing, especially when it only outlines a certain amount of people. I don't think you actually know how it works in real-life. You have such a twisted outlook on how things work that I'm surprised you actually know how to hold yourself in an argument. If anything, it's people like YOU that have made this country the way YOU see it. Yes, we do tend to be more attracted to thin women, but it's people like you that have made this country the sad and close-minded place that it is. Grow up.
No, it won't. I don't discriminate based on weight because I'm not a shallow person. I don't have a ton of money and I'm definitely not famous, but I've never once turned down a woman because she was overweight. I judge people based on the content of their character. Looks are an added bonus.
This will depend on the amount of money, fame and success you have earned in life. Will Smith and others in his class didn't marry a fatty.
Didn't you say she was fat in the show? I think we can all agree that she definitely gained weight towards the latter part of the series, yet the show was successful. The moment she gained weight, the producers didn't all sit down and say "We have to cancel the show. Topanga's overweight." Thus, your logic is once again flawed.
Because once the show is over, she'll likely get fat again. Her weight is a factor in whether the show does well and also determines how successful her career is if she's simply going to be an actress who reads lines others have written. Is she a writer? Is she a comedian? Can she sing? Is she okay with playing the hyper-sexed fat black woman because that's funny (Parks & Recreation)? No? Then she's going to have to get by on her looks like most actresses. If she cannot maintain that, then she doesn't get on TV.
You're attributing all of Jennifer Aniston's success to her looks, which is once again flawed. I'm sure her looks have gotten her a ton of coverage and press over the years, but to be honest, she wasn't as attractive back in the day and yet she still landed a big role on a very popular TV show. You don't think the casting crew couldn't have found someone even more attractive? They obviously chose Jennifer Aniston because she had something about her that others did not and I don't think it was based purely on looks. You may personally not find her funny, but I and many others probably do. She is cute and easy on the eyes and you even said likable. She'd still be likable if she wasn't the former as well because that has to do with personality. Likability is not completely reliant on one's looks like you think it is. It helps, but it's not all about looks.
Who is the most successful? People like Jennifer Aniston, who still looks amazing as an aging actress because she keeps herself fit. Jennifer Aniston doesn't write scripts. She isn't funny on her own. She is a bore in interviews. She doesn't produce save for a few small projects. She doesn't direct except for a couple small projects. She doesn't have an idea in her head. But people like her because she is cute, likable and easy on the eyes.
