Zooey Deschanel slams skinny actresses
Jan 4, 2013, 6:01 GMT
Zooey Deschanel thinks Hollywood stars are too thin.
The 'New Girl' actress isn't a fan of the recent trend of stick thin actresses and thinks many of her contemporaries look 'much, much too skinny'.
In an interview for the February 2013 issue of Glamour, she said: 'Actresses have definitely gotten thinner over the course of my lifetime. Women I admired growing up-- Debra Winger, Diane Keaton, Meryl Streep--were all beautiful and thin, but not too thin. There are a lot of actresses who are unhealthy-skinny--much, much too skinny. You can't Pilates to that.
'I'm a very small person, and if I lost 15 pounds, I'd look like them; it's scary. For young girls, what does that say? You need to look this way to be successful? That's not true. You do not need to look or be anorexic to be successful in Hollywood. The range of what's acceptable is larger than what people believe.'
Zooey - who is divorced from Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard - also revealed her parents and grandparents are her relationship idols.
She said: 'Everyone has to make some compromises.... I think of my parents, who have been married for 40 years, and my grandparents, who were married for 69 years before my grandfather passed away. My dad is so sweet; he's always like, 'Your mom is a better cook than any restaurant.' And I remember my grandfather looking at my grandmother, saying, 'She's the most beautiful woman in the world.' You can't get any better than that.'
