Jennifer Love Hewitt’s recent blog post about celebrity culture’s obsession with weight has inspired other famous women to think their opinion matters. Here’s what they told People magazine:

Petra Nemcova
“There are different angles that everybody, even if you’re in great shape, can look bad in a photograph. And printing these images is definitely influencing people’s minds – the stars themselves, but also the people who are reading and looking at the images, the teenagers. It’s definitely good that she spoke out.”

Rosario Dawson
“They’ll make a whole story about it if someone gains 5 lbs. … It think there is a huge obsession with size-zero jeans, and it’s just really scary. I don’t really know where that comes from. We’re not really in the Twiggy era anymore. It makes me really nervous, because I don’t know how in the world we’re supposed to be that thin unless we’re totally starving and drugging up.”

Anne Hathaway
“[As an actress], most of the year, your body is your own. But to be ridiculed for it is upsetting. But to also have to defend it or explain it or rejoice in it or put it down, or to be expected to have a public opinion about it … I don’t understand when that happened. I don’t think women should only be defined by their bodies and their weight. It’s a cycle we’ve been in for some time, and I don’t really like it.”

Wait, Rosario Dawson, who gained five pounds? Can you maybe drop me an e-mail with their name and attach some unflattering photos? That would be sweet. Thanks, you’re a doll. I’d let you cook me a delicious dinner anytime.
