The Weeknd - Often (NSFW)
Full of "Hungry" Starlets in Magazines? Yeah, Me Too.
Next Sunday marks the 83rd annual Oscars, a night that always dazzles with gowns galore—and the featherweight physiques that fill them. Watching any red carpet, I can't help but gawk at how lithe actresses are these days. Which makes Jeff Gordinier's recent article in theNew York Timesabout (documented instance of public eating) all the more delicious—and timely.
Pre-Oscars, the glossies are chockablock with A-list interviews. And nearly all of them have one thing in common: a gratuitous mention of food. Whether the actress is boasting about her appetite or diving into something fatty mid-interview (examples in Gordinier's piece include Carbonara, fried zucchini and eggs Benedict), the placement of an "I eat" statement is as obvious and overt as possible.
The problem isn't the food. It's the fact that actresses have to pretend they're not starved and charged on coffee, kale and an hour of elliptical every day. Remember the 2006 snapshots of a then-skeletal Nicole Richie eating a burger at the Ivy? Nothing regular or routine about that. It's like product placement in the movies, except much more sinister, helping paint a picture of distorted reality. While I'm sure stars happily indulge on occassion, the exhaustive pressure to look a certain way has been entirely edited out of the conversation—just like, I'm sure, the starlets' strong need for antacids after her "regular" lunchtime meal.
