If there’s one thing that’s a constant in Hollywood, it’s the body shaming. Actually, make that two things, because the fat shaming happens nearly everyday, too! I imagine that actors and actresses just accept that it’s part of the job. But I can’t imagine how difficult it must be to constantly hear criticism of your physical appearance from strangers. Headlines blaring out, “Look How Much Weight So-and-So Has Gained!” Tabloids running the most unflattering pictures of you, taken without your consent when you were just trying to enjoy a beach day. It’s a serious problem, and the attitude that the bodies of famous people are fair game because “that’s what they signed up” is so incredibly dangerous. Anne Hathaway has been in the receiving end of this disgusting behavior before.
But this time, Anne decided to get out in front of the body and fat shamers. The actress is currently preparing for a film role which requires her to gain weight. If you’re familiar with Anne, she’s quite svelte most of the time. But, she’s also human, so her body changes and her weight fluctuates. So Anne posted a workout video on Instagram, telling anyone who dares to comment on her weight to get bent.
