Actress Amanda Seyfried has a new interview in this month’s Allure magazine, in which she discusses one of the most important issues facing young women today – fat shaming. Except instead of being picked on by other people, Amanda admits that she was actually fat-shaming herself, and the results of that self-inflicted mental abuse have affected people far beyond just her.
“…they’re assets,” she said of the resulting cleavage. She once referred to her breasts in an interview as “sacks of fat,” a description that she now reconsiders. “Actually, I saw a picture a couple of days ago from when I was 19, and my boobs were way bigger. They were a D, and now they’re a small C, because I lost weight,” she says. “There was something so beautiful about the size of them. When I look back, I’m like, Why did I always give myself such a hard time?”
This is devastating. Simply heart-breaking. Sure, people should want to be healthy and confident in their own skin, but at what cost? A large-breasted 19-year old girl is a precious natural resource, like oil or gold. Except you don’t want to rub your face in oil or gold and offer to pay for its college.
