A few neatly-distributed pounds would certainly help put across the look of an attractive 18th century woman. She is an emaciated scarecrow!
The girl can't help that she's a bean poll! From the interviews I've read, she's one of those blighted individuals who can eat until doomsday and never gain a pound, an affliction I would gladly relieve her of, were it within my powers to do so. Then again, perhaps she has a tapeworm?
Then she's had a tapeworm for about eight years.
Why-when photographers want to recreate a painting- did thery never reach?It's not so difficult! Get a picture of the painting and compare with the shooting!
Why does the photo have to be exactly like the original painting? Both of them are beautiful. I don't think she looks super skinny in the 18th-century gowns, anyway. Those clothes probably put more weight on her than most other costumes.
What I meant by my comment was, when re-enacting history be faithful, at least to some degree. I was not commenting on the young woman's weight in her own century --in which being thin is the fashion-- I was commenting on the lack of authenticity in representing mine. I certainly meant no disrespect and I humbly apologize for my all-too famous lack of diplomacy and tact.
oh, no offense taken :) I do think that Kate Winslet would have been a better match for the time period and subject.
I just read Georgiana, Duchess of Georgiana. She gained weight, she lost weight. None of the paintings I've seen of her were as thin as the actress I've cast. In fact, quite a few were voluptuous. She's a beautiful actress, and I have not seen the movie yet, but couldn't they have cast a woman of healthier weight? Surely there are plently of excellent actresses who have been overlooked because they are not dangerously underweight.
*correction* The actress they've cast.
Yes, or at least asked her to gain some weight for the part. This is her at her skinniest and it doesn't look healthy. If she looked like this in the 18th century they would have thought her dead! I really, don't see what would be so wrong with asking actresses to gain weight, zellwiger did it.
I don't think she has any affliction or condition, when you see her in "bend it like beckham" she was a regular healthy girl, but as she has becoming more famous she has lost weight until she's now no more than bones. poor girl
