Hollywood is known for having unrealistic standards for beauty. Not only are celebrities expected to lose weight for the roles they secure but they’re expected to slim down to even be considered for jobs. There is an incredible amount of pressure on actors and actresses. Some celebrities, however, refuse to succumb to the unrealistic standards set forth by the industry. They realize that sacrificing their health for a career in Hollywood simply isn’t worth it. Here are 9 celebrities who refuse to lose weight for a role!
9. Sofia Vergara
Early in her career career, Sofia Vergara – who is known for her curvaceous figure – was encouraged to lose weight to further her career, but she stood her ground. “So, somebody told me, ‘You have to lose weight because… in the pictures, you’re gonna look better. Look at the other actors, how good they look,’” she said. “So I told her, ‘Yeah, they might look better in pictures, but I look better naked.’” We’re fairly certain she’s probably right about that!Joe Seer / Shutterstock.com
