Character approved?? Changing american culture??? Is there a more self indulged, pretentious event ?
And this 2 actresse haven’t done anything that hasn’t been done before in the movies. Is not like they are the most unique,original performances in the industry.
Just because MG is HOllywood royalty and GS is fat and used to be poor doesn’t mean they deserve their asses beng kissed.

Excellent move, Maggie! That’ll make you look thinner than slimfast.

this is exactly how I imagine a typical American woman – obese and even more obese….. European celebs would never allow themselves to look like a barrel… we are classy over here ;-)

Yuck, what is that thing????

Thoughtful, intelligent comments, ladies. Ugh. I feel debased just for reading them.

…you know what’s sadder than her weight?! …she’s going to disappear once the oscars are done.
~
…she’ll most likely never get another movie role again. and if dhe does get one once in the blue, we all know what kind of role it’ll be.

I am not sure which one looks worst! That Gabby girl is a horrible actress. I can not wait till she goes away. She is getting more attention then she ever deserved. I could have done a better job ion that role.

@Katsaridoula:

As long as we’re sharing, Katwhatajackazz, here’s how I imagine the certain class of European women that you obviously belong to: reed-thin with wrinkled, sagging skin due to a steady diet of nicotine and coffee since the age of 5; a mustache and hairy armpits; a mouth full of mangled yellow teeth; and reeking of body odor & cheap perfume. How’s that for stereotypes, Katyuranidiot?

right now! @ 02/26/2010 at 10:02 am

Maggie Gyllenhaal looks amazing on Regis and Kelly!

what the hell is Maggie wearing! The girl has a nice bod but no taste in fashion. It looks like something wrapped itself around the top of that dress. I hope someone is dressing her properly for the oscars. I wasn’t crazy about the dress she had on for the luncheon the nominees attended either

She should really do something about her weight, it’s not healthy.

It isn’t healthy. It’s true that some people here are just being spiteful – but others honestly think this girl should lose weight, not merely for appearance sake, but for the sake of her HEALTH AND LONGEVITY. The type of role she played comes along only rarely, and if she expects to have a lucrative and long-lasting career, she’ll definitely need to shed some of that weight.

That is ugly enough to make someone sick.. and don’t tell me she can’t help it. yes the hell she can.. she can put a small effort , and lose some weight, and not look like shes on death door step every other breath she takes.

oh my goodness @ 02/26/2010 at 12:07 pm

I find this so incredibly upsetting; my son in law died because of heart failure. She is UNhealthy. Kids need to know fat is NOT healthy and should NOT be celebrated. Is she proud of this, please do something before it’s too late.

That huge flowered top is not appropriate for an obese lady!

People that are overweight…should not wear tops with large prints on them.

She found a pair a jeans to fit her. You go, girlfriend!

Love Maggie, she’s a great actress, and her brother isn’t bad either ;)

Maggie G. is hideously UGLY- it actually hurts the eyes to look at her.

Wow!!! Such hurtful comments.

It looks likes she has come down a bit on the weight. She has such a pretty face.

@I n F a m o u s l y C o o l:

She is not going to disappear. In a world where Kim K, Nicole Richie and the jersey girls are famous, Sidibe will succeed. Probably not in movies but on tv and internet. She has a great personality and talent.

Roles hard to come by @ 02/27/2010 at 12:00 pm

But how many roles are there in Hollywood for an extremely obese actress? VERY, very few. Her body size is just as extreme as someone who’s obviously anorexic. NEITHER extreme is healthy or ‘normal.’ Unfortunately though since being ‘thin’ is considered a virtue in Hollywood, a ‘rail-thin’ actress is more likely to find work than someone like Gabourey regardless of her talent. Not fair maybe, but it’s true just the same.

How this Gabby girl ever made it to an Oscar nomination is beyond me. She is no actress by any stretch of the imagination. I counted three expressions she was able to convey: disgruntled, crying, laughing and even those not very well, in a face that is so fat that it almost totally inhibits the movement of facial muscles. Just because on one level we empathize with the character she played does not mean that her performance is worthy of praise.
It’s ironic that Gabby’s morbid obesity should make her famous at a time when more than half of America’s population gorges itself into an early grave. So she is no role model in this respect either. I think there is evidence that she actually is a very pretty woman under all this excessive weight, but she may not live long enough for us to find out if she doesn’t do something about her obesity sometime soon.

I am not sure which one looks worst! That Gabby girl is a horrible actress. I can not wait till she goes away. She is getting more attention then she ever deserved. I could have done a better job ion that role.
