    My, it's a sad situation when a woman is considered preachy & holier-than-thou for insisting on being normal.

    In fact, she once criticized a magazine for airbrushing a cover photo
    of her to make her skinny and remove her curves after the mag
    had come out...and the mag claims her people signed off on the
    cover photo (i.e., they gave it their OK). This is a trifle disingenuous
    on her part: she stands to gain the benefits of airbrushing while
    railing at the deceptive practices of the industry.

    (And yet another report indicates she is an expert calorie-counter
    when she shops...which means she possesses the same weight-
    watching obsession.)

    I think she's a great talent and a beauty, but she's not above
    the occasional meaningless, hypocritical rambling that other celebs
    are famous for (Banned: "I'm not having sex for a whole year!")
    Well I can't say that's not true. It is quite hypocritical for her to do that, but we're all human. I still think her message is good because, even if it's not 100% true, it's something to go against the countless amounts of too-thin actresses going "omg I'm perfect look at my bones!" As long as she never gets stickly thin, her message still has some meaning.

    a hypocrite if she's more talented than, say, Paris Hilton?

    2. What part of ourMANinBusan don't you understand?
    You interpreted that wrong, mainly because I didn't write it very clearly. I meant that as a universal You, like her people are saying, "Look, she's just like you (meaning the "everyday woman" per se)." Do I make any sense?
