Body Image a Struggle in Hollywood, too!

Rosario Dawson, star of "Rent", "Seven Pounds", and several other blockbuster movies speaks out about Hollywood's warped perception of body image.  Read the article here about how she was actually complimented for looking emaciated for a role she played in "Rent".  Definitely something to read about, Divas!  We, in the obesity community struggle with our body images, as well.  It's nice to have someone who speaks against the stereotype of the "Hollywood" body-type

Chime in about the article and post your comments!  Smooches!
