    Default Gemma Ward to quit modeling over weight gain attacks



    Catwalk cattiness has claimed a victim!

    Australian supermodel/sometimes actress Gemma Ward is quitting the modeling business amidst criticism about her weight, the model's agency told the Daily Telegraph.

    The 22-year-old beauty has been the subject of Internet taunts after being spotted with a fuller figure last week, the paper reports.

    Photos of the more voluptuous model surfaced online, and comments poking fun about her piling on the pounds reportedly followed. (In related news, we've taken away Karl Lagerfeld's laptop.)

    Ward has been the subject of fierce scrutiny about her weight since she took a break from modeling early last year in the wake of rumored boyfriend Heath Ledger's death in January 2008, according to the paper,

    Clearly, the attacks have taken their toll.

    "Gemma hasn't committed to returning to modeling any time soon," a spokeswoman for her agency, Vivien's Model Management, told the paper.

    Ward's weight gain made headlines this past January when she hit an Australian beach in a bathing suit that showcased her new curves.

    "I was really surprised when I saw her, considering what she used to look like," a source told the Sunday Telegraph at the time. "I had to do a double-take after I saw how much weight she had put on."

    While there's no doubt that Ward has put on some weight, we think the public needs to cut her some slack -- we'd rather see bodacious than bony any day! Besides, these days, the catwalk is showcasing varying body types.

    What do you think? Should Ward let the critics stop her from modeling? Leave a comment (above left)!

    While Gemma Ward is blasted for being too heavy, Miranda Kerr was recently called out for being too skinny.

    She's not fat, but the side by side comparison is shocking. She was too thin before.

    Good for her on gaining weight! However, hopefully this talk of her won't affect her in a negative way and make her lose weight again.

    The brain doesn't need blood. It just needs to be kept wet.

    I like her as a model but at times she looked very thin. I saw her in "The Black Balloon" and she did a good job, she could quit modeling and start acting.

    I actually liked her better when she was thinner; not her thinnest, but the first time she was called out for gaining weight and was still walking the catwalks..she looked good.

    Don't blame her. Modeling is probably fun and games when you're young and naturally slim - it just looks like they to me that her body is maturing and the pressure just got worse, and she's decided it's not the industry she wants to be in. The stress would be enormous.

    She probably gave up the drugs.

    modelling is a job and if she cant fit in to it anymore then she is not suitable ,no discussion needed

    That's exactly the point....why is she no longer suitable? She still has a great body. An even more attractive one actually. And if she is no longer using drugs or starving herself, probably a lot more stamina to trot the catwalk without danger of dying. Seems to me like that would be an asset.

    Maybe the chick beside her is tiny because Gemma looks like a freaking giant. (And no, she's not fat)
