Pressure in regards to body image surrounds modern day society. It's hard to escape the pressure of being thin when everywhere you look there are models, actresses and singers that are beyond thin. Whether Photoshop is involved or not, society's portrayal of body image has raised criticism from people all over the world. Beauty should not be defined by your weight, it should be defined by the way you live your life and the way in which you take care of your health.
Being in the spotlight comes with a lot of pressure. Many women in Hollywood find it hard to maintain that perfect body without going overboard. With the amount of pressure put on female celebrities in today’s society, it comes as no surprise that many pass the point of being fit and begin to look sick. Eating disorders are extremely common in show business and some stars find it hard to lose weight fast enough in a healthy way.
This unrealistic and unhealthy body image which is portrayed by many celebrities sends off a negative impression in regards to how women should look. Eating disorders have become an increasingly serious problem over the last few years and the fact that many celebrities are abnormally thin has something to do with it.
Girls idolize celebrities and strive to look like them at all costs. Hollywood should begin pushing healthy body images or the problem will continuously worsen. The following 15 celebrities are famous for all kinds of different things, however, they are all known for being scary skinny. Love them or hate them, the following thin celebrities all need to sit down and eat a burger or pizza or both because looking at them is enough to make anyone hungry.
