America Ferrera, the star of the TV series Ugly Betty, says she is curvy but doesn’t like the term being used to describe women in Hollywood.
“There’s just way too much attention placed on the way we look. I think it’s hilarious when people call Jessica Alba or Eva Longoria curvy. Come on — they’re not curvy. I’m curvy,” she was quoted as saying by ananova.com.
She added, “What is normal now? Is it normal to be size zero? Starving yourself is not beautiful. I’ve been really lucky. Playing Betty has prepared me to be exactly who I am and not to change. If I’ve gained a pound or lost a pound, or have food in my teeth, it all works for the show.”
