What happened to Scarlett Johansson’s beautiful curves?

Moet & Chandon: A Tribute To Cinema - Arrivals

Scarlett Johansson has lost a ton of weight recently – most noticeably in her formerly ample bosom. But it’s obvious all over, and was completely unnecessary. Scarlett looked amazing and generally made every jaw drop when she walked into a room. So why the drastic change? No explanation for the why, but Page Six has some information on the how.

SAY it ain’t so, ScarJo! Sultry Scarlett Johansson is getting rid of her famous curves. Eyes popped Tuesday night at Moet & Chandon’s “Tribute to Film” soiree at London’s Big Sky Studios when the “very slim” actress, who’s married to Ryan Reynolds, strutted in wearing a tight, black minidress. “She was talking to Thandie Newton about the rigid diet she’s on,” our spy said of the star of the upcoming “Iron Man 2.” Joseph Fiennes, Eva Herzigova and Marc Newson were all there and ogling Johansson, who “was really working it,” according to our snitch.

[From Page Six]

So is this rigid diet possibly for the upcoming “Iron Man 2?” All the articles seem to be praising Scarlett for her new look. Am I the only one upset with the change?

The starlet does seem streamlined.

Perhaps the actress is prepping for a film role. Maybe she’s tired of people talking about “The Johanssons.” But the sudden weight loss does make one wonder whether Johansson has changed her opinion about America being “obsessed with dieting rather than focusing on eating well, exercising and living a healthy life.”

Particularly if one is insane with jealousy at Johansson’s frankly elegant new look.

[From Defamer]

The pictures on Defamer (link above) show the most dramatic difference in Scarlett’s physique. Personally I think she looked a hell of a lot more elegant before. Now she just looks like every other woman in Hollywood. At least from the neck down. But I think the weight loss even took a tiny bit of character from her face. I’m disappointed that she caved in to the American “diet obsession” as she put it. I never heard anyone call her fat or imply she needed to lose weight. Scarlett was absolutely height weight proportionate. She’s still beautiful, but somehow I now find her a little lacking and a little boring.

Here’s Scarlett at the Moet and Chandon: A Tribute to Cinema party held at Big Sky in London on Tuesday. Images thanks to BauerGriffinOnline and WENN .

    I can’t see a shocking weight-loss.

  2. heima says:

    She looks skinnier just because she wears a black dress, a black corset and no bra.

  3. Anon E Mouse says:

    I prefer her blond and 15 pounds heavier. Before she was stunning. Now, she’s barely noticeable.

  4. Chloe says:

    She’s always had a BIG HEAD & BIG FACE for a short woman.

    Getting thinner only accentuates her bobble head tendencies. BTW, she’s ordinary looking. Don’t know what all the fuss is about.

  5. Krystleblah says:

    ScarJo!! Let’s hope she’s doing it for a role b/c we don’t want to have to start a Save ScarJo campaign on our website! We already have a Save Lilo and Save Amy.

  6. Sauronsarmy says:

    JayBird: I agree with you completely. I have a secret love for Scarjo and I’m blaming this whole mess on Iron man. I’m hoping once the movie is over she’ll go back to blonde and gain some weight. Shes one of the people that doesn’t look right skinny.

  7. JayBird says:

    Take a look at the pictures on the Defamer link above. They have access to a few shots we don’t, and it’s really obvious there.

  8. Ash says:

    I don’t see a big weight loss either. This isn’t news!

  9. nanster says:

    I think she looks better a bit thinner. I also don’t understand why people think she’s so beautiful. Sure, she’s attractive, but definitely not gorgeous.

  10. heima says:

    JayBird:
    “Take a look at the pictures on the Defamer link above. They have access to a few shots we don’t, and it’s really obvious there.”
    Mh… it seems that is just the make up and the dark hair (and the dress as stated above) that make her look thinner. If you compare her arms on the before – after pictures they look the same shape and thickness.

  11. JayBird says:

    Her arms look thinner, though not frighteningly so. The dramatic change is in her formerly ample bust, and it’s more than just a different bra, in my opinion.

  12. Gistine says:

    Did she lose weight in her nose too? Cause’ its noticibly smaller.

    Lucky betch, married to Ryan Reynolds!

  13. teehee says:

    Well no one can win either way.
    You’re either too fat (politely called ‘curvy’) or too thin.
    Its not like shes even thin-thin or anything.
    But as long as youre in hollywood youre supposed to cater to the publics desires, so …

  14. geronimo says:

    Her face and her boobs/waist are a bit thinner but nothing dramatic. But I prefer her blonde and that very natural ‘lush’ look she’s always had, looks a bit harsh here.

  15. Ana says:

    I see a big weight loss. I also think her nose looks a little different.
    She shouldn’t have lost the weight because when she gains it back everythings gonna be in the wrong place.

  16. Larissa says:

    omg, where have her boobs gone????

  17. Orangejulius says:

    She looks much better blonde and I too, don’t understand why she’s considered to be so beautiful. I think she’s pretty ordinary.

  18. heima says:

    Can I post a link of a picture?
    Yes?
    Thanks! :D
    http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z69/celebritycool/orig_Scarlett_Johansson_brightens_o.jpg
    I don’t want to insist saying that she doesn’t look that skinnier, but on the picture in the link above her breast look more deflated than her usual standards.
    In any case the fact that she may be thinner than usual is nothing that bothers me: she looks healthy and beautiful as well.

  19. vale says:

    I agree with Heima, I think it’s the dress, the color, the corset, the no bra especially. My body is similar to hers and wearing a bra makes a big difference.
    I wish she would fix her feet posture..

  20. Ling says:

    She never interested me before. Now she flat-out turns me off.

  21. j says:

    The small hump on her nose is gone. I like her looking more voluptuous. She lost all her weight on top (above her waist) and looks pear shaped/hip-py.

  22. Ned says:

    HEr face is not pretty enough to let go of her boobs.

    Her body was her best asset. Now that she will become another ordinary LA stick figure, I don’t see any point of her being in ant film.

    She clearly can’y act.

  23. Mme X says:

    I don’t think she’s lost her curves but I do see her experimenting with weight loss and an entirely different/sort of Hollywood glam look. Not sure it works.

  24. Cate says:

    I personally find her generally unattractive (and no, before anyone says it, I’m not just a jealous bitch thank you very much). Her face just seems ‘off’ to me, and the way she does her makeup doesn’t help matters.

  25. sissoucat says:

    She looks boring and unhealthy. Not a welcome change. Is her marriage on the rocks already ?

  26. Ned says:

    I also don’t think her nose job works well with the entire look.

    Her nose is too small for her face now.

  27. HashBrowns says:

    She looks exactly the same. Her arm is exatctly the same size in the first picture as it is in the second. She has not lost a ton of weight in that particular picture comparison.

    I have her body type; big natural boobs and a fairly slim lower body. Her breasts have always been pushed up in her dresses. She’s not wearing a bra in this dress so her boobs naturally fall to the sides and fill in the dress.

    My boobs look vastly different in different dresses and different bras; it’s one of the troubles of having large breasts. You either wrangle them down, push them up or let them go free.

  28. AppleGirl says:

    She is not too thin. Absurd.
    Do you people even know what “too thin” looks like? It looks skeletal. She is nothing near skeletal. When she looks like a bag bones, then maybe ok.

    She doesn’t look like she is anorexic.
    Not everybody has a fat stomach on this earth.

  29. Ana says:

    I don’t think that everybody (including myself) means that she is too thin in an anorexic way. In my opinion, she simply looks better with curves.

  30. j. ferber says:

    I think her face looks longer and thinner. I prefer her the old way, too.

  31. Trey says:

    This reminded me of the blind vice item Ted C wrote nearly a week ago… about two coked-up celebrities who had recently lost a lot of weight on the white stuff. Guy was obviously Seth Rogen, and the chick could be her (with the movie being He’s Just Not That Into You).

    Possibility, people.

  32. Chiara says:

    I’ll hope it’s for a role she’s playing. I love her blond, natural body, youthful appearance. VC Barcelona she looked great.

  33. David says:

    She still sets the standard for beautiful and glamors. Get over the fact that now shes married, she won’t be shoving those unequaled boobies in our faces. I for one have plenty of pics to compare and see nothing to cry about.

  34. czarina says:

    She lives in an environment (the entertainment industry) where being famous and successful only increases the number of people who will tell her that she needs to lose weight, even if she doesn’t, until she reaches some skeletal ideal that sickeningly people actually admire.
    I agree she looked much better before the weight loss. (and with the blond hair)
    And I hope Chiara is right and it’s for a movie.

  35. Jacks says:

    I think she looks fine. I also think that actors gain and lose weight all the time for roles, so I’m not sure what the big deal is. Personally, I think Paris looks emaciated, but no one ever seems to talk about that… maybe I’m the crazy one!

  36. Aspen says:

    She takes crap on every thread I’ve seen about her ANYwhere for her boobs. “Look, she’s pushing them out.” “Those can’t be real.” “What a slut with her tits hanging out.”

    After a few years of that every day…any woman would go neurotic and have them lopped off.

    Shame.

  37. Aspen says:

    Yeah, I’m with you…looks like a nose job and a breast reduction twofer.

  38. Jill says:

    her face just looks different to me, maybe you guys are right about a nose job. i think she looked prettier before, but i don’t think she looks unhealthy-thin now either. i might just think she looks better with blond hair.

  39. AppleGirl says:

    She’s getting older, there is no way she is ever going to look “as pretty as she was before” regardless of her age. Aging is the reason she isn’t as “pretty” as she was before. It has nothing to do with weight. Beauty lessens as the years pass. We are only humans.

    People who tell people to gain weight are as annoying as people who tell people to lose weight. Some of us are NATURALLY thin and am happy about it. I can eat tons and never gain. How is that bad?

  40. SixxKitty says:

    Why fix something that isn’t broken!!
    She was perfect and delectable before, so sad to see her curves go *sob*

  41. Ana says:

    I am glad I’m not the only one who noticed the different looking nose.
    Perhaps she lost weight to make her boobs smaller because they were giving her back pain.

  42. Zoe (The Other One) says:

    New nose, new boobs – not really news in her world.

    I’m more interested in how she manages to tear herself away from that delicious husband of hers to go to these parties. You wouldn’t be able to distract me from him for pretty much anything!!

  43. AppleGirl says:

    Not all boys like curvy women. 100000s like thin girls.
    Thousands of men obsess with supermodels and send them fan letters etc.
    I’m happy to be thin and I’m glad there are 100000000000s of boys who like thin girls. I’ve heard boys call people “fatty” in school. Never “you thinny”

    I’m looking at the second picture from the top on the left. How is that not curvy?
    Fat people just want her to be fat so they can feel pretty.

  44. AppleGirl says:

    I’ve thought about it. This is an issue of certain women who can’t lose weight because they are too lazy and eat too much and therefor want to RAISE the so called “standard of beauty” to their weight.

    Its much more easy and fun to call thin people “ugly” and “sick” than it is to jog and resist cakes.

    Fat people are trying to give us thin people low self esteem. But, it won’t work. I like being thin. Now more than ever.

  45. Whitey Fisk says:

    I think Nony hit the nail on the head..she looks pointy. Another one bites the dust. Damn.

    As I read it, Jaybird’s article has nothing to do with fatness or thinness, but rather the way Hollywood homogenizes celebrities.

  46. AppleGirll says:

    You know what my brother said?

    “Are they joking? I don’t think I’ve ever seen anybody as curvy as that in the real world. Even if she lost some curvyness, she is still curvier than any woman you will ever see on any given day”

    You go girl! Don’t let people get you down. Society just wants you to be fat so they can call you names for being fat.

  47. Ursula says:

    I never thought she was pretty in the first place.

  48. j. ferber says:

    Is it possible she had some eye work done to get that cat eye look? It’s particularly clear on the pic with her and the giant bottle of champagne. I also kind of have the feeling she’s not done with the weight loss. Because if she does want to homogenize herself, she’ll need to lose more weight and get more plastic surgery. I hope that is not the case. Right now she looks entirely too manufactured, if that’s the right word.

  49. heima says:

    How on earth can you wish to homogenize yourself to Hollywood standards when you are well known and appreciated for being different from THAT standards?
    It’s nonsense. and I don’t think that this is her aim (if she’s really trying to lose weight, of course).

  50. barneslr says:

    She needs to go back to blond. Red does not work well for her. I have never gotten why people think she’s so beautiful. She’s ok, but nothing special.

  51. Vanu says:

    She looks so ordinary and bland.I’m no fan, but she looked a lot better before.

  52. Hieronymus Grex says:

    I still see them, someone needs to get their eyes checked.

  53. Chris says:

    AppleGirll, your brother needs to see more women if that is curvier than anyone he’s seen on the street. Among the Latin women alone in Chicago I there findare many, many of them with even more shapely, hourglass figures. Soft curvy, toned curvy, you name it.

  54. Ernestine says:

    Ah, she’s still gorgeous, but she DOES look as if she’s dropped a few. She’s also wearing all black, and the velvet waistline of her dress has GOT to be really slimming. Her boobs are definitely smaller, though. Maybe she doesn’t give a shit. Maybe she LIKES not having those boulders to sling around anymore. I don’t blame her.

    She probably has the type of body where she loses weight in her boobs/face first. I WILL say that the shots of her at the Met Ball where she was dressed up like a Medieval fairy are breathtaking compared to these recent photos.

    Oh, and Applegirl:
    “I’m happy to be thin and I’m glad there are 100000000000s of boys who like thin girls. I’ve heard boys call people “fatty” in school. Never “you thinny”

    Um. You just keep basing allllllllll your aesthetic standards on what boys like, honey.

  55. snackstick says:

    I hate the suggestion that “curvy” is really just code for overweight. Because it’s simply not true. Some women have T&A, others don’t. It doesn’t mean either is more or less attractive.

    And I second Ernestine’s comment to Applegirl. Allowing “boys” to determine your self-worth is a mistake. Besides, a well-honed intellect always wins in the end.

  56. HashBrowns says:

    Is anyone here taking into account the fact that her boobs aren’t squished together and pushed up?

    This is like back when Paris Hilton first debuted her miracle bra and suddenly had cleavage and everyone said she’d had a boob job, I remember telling people that a bra can change the way your breasts look. Turns out, I was right.

    In this case, her breasts are sitting apart in those triangle shaped bits in the front of the dress. If you look really closely, you can see that her boobs are the same size; they’ve filled out the “cone” in the dress. The reason they look smaller is because they aren’t pushed up or squeezed together.

    Am I the only one who knows/sees this?

  57. AppleGirlll says:

    Ernestine:

    As if I’m the only person who does that. From the minute every human wakes up in the morning, they are concerned about being attractive to the opposite sex. That’s why we put on make up in the morning. Thats why we comb our hair. That’s why we iron our clothes. That’s why we bathe. Its all an effort to be attractive. To whom? lesbians? bleah! To other hetero women? No. To birds? No.
    To boys.
    Everytime I turn on tv I see makeup ads. Why? See above. I’m tired of typing. I type too slow.

    I dont care what boys think. I just hate that curvy women think they are gods gift. I only said not all boys like curvy. Some like thin. Millions do. Curvy isnt a standard of beauty anymore than thin is, but women are trying to make it that because its easier to be fat than thin.

    Snack: When females say “curvy” we mean slightly overweight. Period. Beer belly.
    I don’t know what guys mean when they say it. Bosoms?

  58. AppleGirlll says:

    snack. intellect doesn’t always win out in the end. Who are you kidding? Sex appeal is a major thing.

    Millions upon millions of 45-60 year old intellectual men with masters degrees would probably sell their souls to date Demi Moore, but they can’t because she wanted beauty and sex appeal.

    I want to be sexy and intellectual but at LEAST sexy.

  59. snackstick says:

    Apple: I’m sure a great deal of women agree with you, and that’s perfectly fine. But there are still plenty of others who believe their brain is a far greater asset than their, well, ass. It takes all kinds, right?

  60. Raven says:

    Applegirl, you completely miss the point. Hollywood pressures people to stop being who they are and all look the same. Her look was unique, like you claim yours is. Why should she change to look like everyone else? People have different body types and should be accepted for them. This has nothing to do with being obese. Thus, the ectomorph, endomorph and mesomorph distinctions. She had great curves while never looking overweight. The issue here is that she has denied her own frame and body type to conform to someone else’s ideal. Always a mistake but ever more common among celebrities and, then among the culture in general.

  61. Wonder Woman says:

    I honestly would do a Borat move by trying to stuff her in a sack and force her to be my love… Now not so much…I guess kim k will have to do…. :/

  62. Wonder Woman says:

    Okay speaking seriously:

    Raven: if you were paid some million dollars for your acting which included molding yourself for the sake of the movie… you wouldnt of done it?
    Please shes trying to get paid, no one in hollywood cares what they represent, if they are icons, they just wanna get paid.

  63. Ernestine says:

    Oh my freaking Lord. I CANNOT believe that people like you actually exist:

    “As if I’m the only person who does that. From the minute every human wakes up in the morning, they are concerned about being attractive to the opposite sex. That’s why we put on make up in the morning. Thats why we comb our hair. That’s why we iron our clothes. That’s why we bathe. Its all an effort to be attractive. To whom? lesbians? bleah! To other hetero women? No. To birds? No.
    To boys.”

    Orrrrrrr….I do those things for MYSELF, because making MYSELF feel attractive is ultimately more important than anything else — including fulfilling the dumbass whims of some dude who wants me to put on eyeliner and lose a few.

    And I LOVE it when a lesbian tells me I’m hot, because I can’t honestly think of a better, kinder, and more understanding judge of a woman’s physical appearance.

    And, yes, I have a mate. And, yes, he’s male. And, yes, he does find me attractive, but I can wear sweatpants and a bareface and he loves me every bit as much. You need to also take into account that there are many, many, many men who do NOT want a girl who’s totally obsessed with her appearance.

    And I’m operating from the standpoint of someone who is NOT fat by any standards — I’ve got some curves, but they are scant, and I would LOVE to gain about ten pounds.

    You’re a sad person, Applegirl. The end.

  64. Ernestine says:

    P.S. Oh, and I’ll be DAMNED if I iron ANYTHING.

  65. AppleGirl says:

    how am I sad?? Because I have a sense of self worth??

    You missed my point. Society (especially other women) is trying to imply that being thin is an ugliness and an illness. I read this so much in forums: “she looks thin and sick. she needs to eat”. I have never had an eating disorder. I eat full course meals 3 times a day. So how does that equal “sick?”

    I’m thin (“ballerina thin” as they say) but not one boyfriend I ever had said “you look thin and sick”.

    Its usually women who say horrible things like “she looks thin and sick” 90% of the time. I can’t believe there are some women so ignorant and stupid that they think all thinness is the result of food deprivation and starvation and eating disorders.

    Some of us dont have a choice in the matter. I have a petite frame and I have 2 very thin parents. I’d have to eat the entire inventory of Taco Bell to gain 10 pounds. I lead an active lifestyle to boot. I cant gain weight. I don’t want to gain weight. What for? What am I going to do with an additional 15-20lbs? Watch it jiggle for fun?

    That doesnt mean I’m “sick and unhealthy or unsexy or unpretty” like other women try to suggest. It means I have a high metabolism rate. Maybe it will change when I get older but I doubt it because it didnt change for my parents.

    I’m glad you like lesbians and their opinions. I would be really creeped if another girl told me I was attractive in a sexual way Maybe because of where I was raised and the power the catholic church had there (even though Im not religious). The lesbian lifestyle is ok but I draw a boundary between me and them. I don’t want sexual comments from them. They can be my friend as long as they don’t cross that boundary.

  66. Maritza says:

    Her boobs must have deflated and now reach her knees, I don’t think Ryan must like that.

  67. AppleGirl says:

    Ok we get it. Boys want her to look curvier like before. Why should she become curvier just because the boys think that is way she should be?
    She should be the way she is happiest. If she is happy thinner then isnt that ok?

    I was chastised for wanting to look good “for the sake of boys” and she is being chastised not being what the boys want her to be. (curvy).

    She should become curvy because boys want her that way? no.

  68. j. ferber says:

    Ernestine, I’m with you on the ironing. Haven’t done that in YEARS! Talk about liberating.

  69. snackstick says:

    Applegirl: So let me get this straight: It’s OK for you to give boys what they want, but then you scold other women for doing the same? Just own who you are and stop pointing fingers. I’m sure you’re beautiful, and if you want to work it, then by all means, work it. But trying to justify your beliefs by putting other people down just seems foolish.

  70. Ana says:

    I don’t consider curvy women to be “fat.” I just consider them to have t&a that I would die for.

  71. Annie says:

    Wow.

    Ok. I’ve made comments before about weight size (check that horrendous raven symone thread we all tore into lol)

    But I have to say, Applegirl. Your views, your thoughts, your notion of the world is very very very sick and perturbed.

    I too am thin, (ask any of the posters here, I’m a little too annoying about it. LOL, and I’ve been trying to be good about it!) I love my body! I would be ok with getting some rack action though. That would be great. lol But in all seriousness…..

    Holy crap. I mean seriously, HOLY…CRAP. I think it’s people like you who want to throw women back into the middle ages.

    I don’t wake up every morning thinking that I need to impress a member of the opposite sex. Looks fade hunny, and it’ll be a sad day for you when it does, because you clearly lack any intelligence or substance.

    To measure your self worth by another person’s vision is pathetic. I mean really. It’s one thing when it’s about health issues, but it’s a completely different when you’re telling me that we need to convey a certain image because “boys” want us that way. I don’t date boys. I date men. And men love women who love themselves.

    P.S.

    Amen to not ironing anything lol. I don’t even OWN an iron. Take me as a I am, no makeup, no hair brushing, smart ass mouth or be damned!

  72. Aspen says:

    I look pretty freakin’ good for a woman in my stage of life (which is due to hard work…not metabolic giftedness), and I have a set of knockers, as well. I’m “curvy.” Curvy does not and has never meant “fat.”

    It’s a body shape. There’s “willowy,” “curvy,” “pear,” etc.

    I do not find the majority of my self-confidence and self-worth in the way my body is shaped. I find that in the relationships I sustain with loved ones and in the integrity that I try to live by…and in my hobbies, my charity work, and my social life.

    I love my self and my life for what I do…not for how I look. I judge myself based on what I have or have not done to benefit other people and my family…not by comparing my figure to that of other women.

    Most women over the age of 16 understand this concept. It’s sad that some of the people on this thread don’t.

    No one thinks slender is ugly. Pretty much everyone thinks emaciated is.

  73. Aspen says:

    Annie…/standing applause. I totally love what you just said.

  74. K says:

    What a difference! Such a beautiful girl! I hope the sudden weightloss was for a movie! Her head looks huge compared to the frail body! Eat please!!!!

  75. j. ferber says:

    Annie, I think you were too hard on Applegirl. You might even have scared her away. From her posts, I gather that she is very young, but she still blogs on Celebitchy which, I also gather, has mostly post-30 women on it. In other words, she’s brave to throw herself into the mix. I don’t agree with her opinions either, but this is a welcoming site so I think she needs more gentle handling.

  76. AppleGirl22 says:

    Nobody scared me away. What more is there to say? It’s not my fault that some people have no reading comprehension skills.

    I dont argue with women in denial. You can’t.
    I’m 22. I’m not a kid. I want to look good because I want to attract a successful professional guy one day. I don’t want to spend my life with trailer trash that most women who don’t care about their looks end up with.

    As for “ironing”. You can pretty much tell who has a high level career and who doesn’t just by whether they iron their clothes. “liberating not to iron”?? Professional men and women have to iron their clothes or have them pressed. It’s called “looking professional”.

    People with no jobs or who have manual labor jobs don’t have to iron their clothes.

    I iron my clothes because I don’t want to pay to have them pressed (unless you are paying for me) and I’m studying to be a veterinarian and want a professional appearance or else nobody will want to bring their pets to me once I establish a practice. A person has to be well kempt for a real career.

    I don’t know what you do for a living but it can’t be too liberating a career if you don’t have to press your clothing.

  77. Ernestine says:

    Oh, Jesus LORD.

    Hi. Sorry to quibble, but I WORK IN A VET CLINIC. It’s one of the FEW work environments where you’re a total OCD-afflicted psycho if you actually IRON your work uniform.

    Scrubs, anyone? They’re pretty much one of the very best perks of working with critters. Or people, I guess, but animals are way better if you ask me.

    Oh, and I am professional. I work my ass off.

    Good luck with veterinary school, Applegirl.

    I’m disappointed to with the weight loss, but Scarlett looks awesome with the darker hair. The blond totally washed her out. Not everyone can be a blond and it made her look like a ghost.

    It seems that Hweird is too insular because they’re enamored with what they think looks good. The average woman is healthier and at least Scarlet represented healthy proporptional weight. Like Jennifer Connolly, whom I love, she caved to the unrealistic weight standard in Hweird.

    It’s sad. And who is setting the standard of women looking underweight?

    “It’s one of the FEW work environments where you’re a total OCD-afflicted psycho if you actually IRON your work uniform.”

    Well thats nice to know.

    It’s interesting you said “one of the FEW work environments”, so its good you indirectly acknowledge that a spiffy sharp appearance is a requirement in MOST professional settings.

    Like I said, you can tell generally who is a professional and who isn’t by whether they iron their clothing.

    Applegirl, Calm down, I was trying to be nice to you. I’d bring my dog to see you as a vet if you didn’t iron your clothes (or wore clothes that didn’t need ironing), but your combative attitude would be off-putting. By the way, I’m a teacher on child care leave. I am a professional with two Master’s degrees, but your rigid view of what makes a professional (someone who irons her clothes) is just silly. A professional is a person who has a profession. You don’t yet, but when you do, compassion, competence and tolerance trump ironed clothes any day.
    P.S. And not all suitable work clothes need to be ironed, anyway.

    Applegirl: Your inferiority complex is staggering. People who are genuinely successful usually don’t feel the need to prove themselves over and over and over again to an anonymous audience. And with your nasty, self-righteous attitude, your days as a vet will be limited. Especially since you believe your sex appeal is more valuable than your intellectual capabilities. Better grab that Walmart application while they’re still hiring.

    It’s you males who have to work hard.
    Us females have a safety net.

    Good one, snackstick!
    Because you aren’t professional unless you iron your clothes and I must be fat if I’m calling somebody skinny.

    Applegirl,
    Speaking as another thin, young woman, studying at college, I do agree that maintaining a professional appearance is quite important. However, I don’t think it takes much effort to purchase clothes that don’t require ironing. Please do not expect people to agree with you when you such offer such naive, sweeping generalizations about being a professional. It also highlights how inexperienced you are with the working environment and work ethics.
    I feel as though we have warped back to the era of time where women were all expected to be little more than domesticated trophies. It’s because of women like you, that the rest of us (especially the young, attractive women) has to work harder, to prove that we are “not just a pretty face”.
    English is also a second language for me, but it does not take a college education to understand that the definition of “curvy” is just that, it is not a euphemism for “fat.” I do question your need to classify all women into one of two extreme categories, its either they’re skinny, or they’re fat. Why do you care, if “fat” people are calling others sick and skinny? If you’re truly healthy, happy and just happen to be thin, then it shouldn’t matter to you. Everyone’s perception of aesthetics is different, don’t try to force your ideals onto others.
    Good on you for coming up with the notion of a safety net for yourself, but dating/marrying a successful man does not equate to a life of happiness. You should also note that men can also marry/date someone richer than them, so they don’t always have to “work hard”.
    Personally, I’d prefer my poor, hard working man, who sometimes likes to iron my clothes for me, and accompanies me on our rare but memorable travelling adventures. :D

    Because its hurtful. At least a fat person can lose weight and become curvy. I can’t do that.
    bye.

  89. appleplums says:

    “women were all expected to be little more than domesticated trophies. ”

    Striving to be beautiful doesn’t mean one is a 1700′s “domesticated trophy”. How silly.
    Sarah Palin was a beauty contest competitor and she ran for the vice presidency and is highly accomplished.

    ““curvy” is just that, it is not a euphemism for “fat.””

    I dont even care what it is anymore. Why does society even invent these stupid terms?

    “Good on you for coming up with the notion of a safety net for yourself, but dating/marrying a successful man does not equate to a life of happiness. You should also note that men can also marry/date someone richer than them, so they don’t always have to “work hard”.”

    Yes men can marry someone richer too. If I am successful in my future, I wouldnt be opposed to dating someone who makes less money than me.

    But, it’s a lot easier for us! Thats one of the perks.

    If my brother and I both decided to go out in the city and bring back successful boyfriends/girlfriends, I would come back with 50 of them in the time he ties his shoes to leave the house.

    Seduction is a feminine power. Men dont have that one. :)

    “Why do you care, if “fat” people are calling others sick and skinny?”

    Because its hurtful. At least a fat person can lose weight and become curvy. I can’t do that.

    (I hope this worked better than my last post)

  90. Yuki Onitsura says:

    “Seduction is a feminine power. Men dont have that one.”

    The reason you’d pick up 50 guys before your brother even gets his shoes on has nothing to do with the fact that men are incapable of seducing, rather it’s that men are fixated on sex and will hump anything with legs, thin or otherwise.

    ““Why do you care, if “fat” people are calling others sick and skinny?”

    Because its hurtful. At least a fat person can lose weight and become curvy. I can’t do that.”

    True, if you’re thin losing weight won’t make you curvy. But you could always put on weight and become curvy. And trust me, putting weight on is a much more pleasant experience than taking weight off.

    “““curvy” is just that, it is not a euphemism for “fat.””

    I dont even care what it is anymore. Why does society even invent these stupid terms? ”

    Society didn’t invent these terms. If you trace the etymology back, you’ll find that the term ‘curvy’ has been used for a long time in this way. Like fashion, it’s just one of those things that comes in and out of vogue. An example of a stupid term society invents would be “yummy mummy”.

    Golddigger in the making? You’ve already set yourself up for failure with that attitude my dear. There’s always going to be someone younger and prettier than you. If you haven’t noticed that yet, you are in for a rough ride.

  93. Ana says:

    So what will you do when you get older and your rich, successful man dumps you for someone younger, prettier and skinnier?
    Because there is always someone smarter, prettier, skinnier, and overall better. That’s the risk you take when you marry someone for the wrong reasons.
    But I guess that is a risk everyone takes getting married.

  94. nina says:

    Applegirl, as a successful professional, and a woman, I can tell you that your notions on what makes a professional are naive more than they are annoying (not a small feat). As to your being slim – wait until you hit 30. If you are still slim at that age, then you are slim for real. And finally – as to who professional guys date – as one who has been dating them (evidently one a time) since before you hit puberty, I can tell you that they may make a mistake with pompous golddiggers, but that soon enough they move on to people who have both looks and substance. As we do not have the opportunity to comment on your looks, I can only say that you sound lacking the latter. BTW – I liked Scarlett better before – fresh-faced, pink, blond and curvy.

  95. tigerlille says:

    I don’t understand the fuss about Scarlett’s body. What she needs to do is work with a speech coach. She can’t enunciate clearly.

  96. marwa says:

    I’m sorry to jump in the conversation like that but i just want to say that since when do we judge people based on their appearences?
    It’s really annoying that people are now classified as either “thin” or “fat”!!
    The only thing on most girls’ minds these days is outer appearences!!I’m glad i’m not wanna of them!!!
    I’m an 18 year old from egypt and these hollywood standards(believe or not) are spreading here!!!
    I’m 5’2 , 108 pounds…based these standards i must be obese right??

  97. Annie says:

    Thanks Aspen :D

    And ok, Did I really just read “Women have a safety net”?

    Seriously?

    Did I just read that? Because obviously someone who claims to be 22 and a vet-in-training must have her head so far up her own rear that she’s failed to see the thousands of years of subjugation that women have dealt with and are STILL dealing with.

    Did you know in the professional world that a woman only makes 75 cents for every dollar a man makes? That gender inequality, though the gap is closing, still exists. Can you say glass ceiling?

    I want to be RESPECTED, not used for my looks.

    FYI. I’m 23, (I just turned earlier this month!) have a bachelor’s in political science and law and society (from the like 7th best Political science school in the nation :P ), work in a law firm and am by many standards, pretty damn successful (Law school’s next, but let’s try to eradicate some university debt first right? :D Cuz wow is it MURDER.)

    Oh and I don’t iron. We all come into work in jeans and sweats. Do you know why? Because at MY firm, we measure work product, not how pretty our shirts look. We look at substance not outer shells. Being able to put on a nice suit doesn’t mean you’ll be one heck of a litigator. Being one heck of a litigator shows that.

    Oh and since I’m already well on my way to debunking your ignorant generalizations, let’s go one further. On top of my working at a pretty successful place, NOT in the labor industry as you’ve implied. I should also note that I’m not dating trailer trash. My boyfriend is actually going to receive two degrees come June from one of the top Universities in the country. :)

    Do you know how I measure my self worth? It’s not by being able to say “OMG I’m so skinny” like you. It’s by knowing that if I were to get into a debate of wits with any other person, I could hold my own.

    You know, I don’t care if I’m being mean, this applegirl is a complete moron and I truly mean it when I say that it’s her kind of sentiment that makes me sick to my stomach.

    You’re right CB is a place where we all come to kind of trash celebs and have a little downtime. But I refuse to let this one come and tell me that as a woman, I need to measure my self-worth by the smoothness of my skin and the measurement of my waist. We tease celebs in good fun, but telling me that because I don’t iron means I’m trailer trash?

    For someone who claims to be 22 and a vet-in-training. You’re pretty stupid.

    —-

    Marwa, we always initially judge people based on physical appearance. My belief is that it stems from the primal instinct to judge something in order to know if it is friend or foe and has evolved (though I use the word loosely) into pretty much being the first phase at which we base whether we want to get to know someone or not. I will agree that looks play a role, but it’s not the dealbreaker. Unless of course you’re shallow.

  103. lavender1960 says:

    Oh Apple girl you have so much to learn.

    Learn to support yourself honey because those nice looking professional boys often dump their attractive wives for younger models and/or have mistresses with curves or and/or pay skanks that probably aren’t half as good looking as their wives for sex on the side.

    Better off finding a man who loves you for you and not foremost for your appearance.

  104. lavender1960 says:

    The reason we lament the loss of Scarlet’s curves is because it is abundantly clear, from the fashion runways to Hollywood that the lollipop stick figure is being touted as the way to look from Lohan to Ritche.

    What is most shocking is the fashion industry and I can come only to the following conclusions, either designers, even females are all misogynist or gay, ergo loving that little boy figure or they are too cheap to pay for the material to make clothes for the runway even a size 6 gasp. The stanard is now 0 or 2. Or the designers have less skill than ever before to design clothes for women with even the minimal amount of boobs and butt, with the exception being Victoria Secret. They would have a nervous breakdown if Sophia Loren walked in I guess.

    Helena Christensen, who was and still is one of my favourite supermodels back in the day when supermodels had some curves, says that she and her compadres at their sizes in their heyday which was around size 6 would be considered too fat for the NY Runways today, which is just shocking.

    Most women would rather look like those supermodels [and even that is unobtainable for most women] than the heroin chic starving waif look. Can’t wait for the days when curves are appreciated by more than just the porn industry.
