    Default Mandy Moore took a while to accept her size

    Mandy Moore could hardly be considered overweight – but she says working in Hollywood made her feel bad about her size.

    "I want to be healthy, but in an industry where you can't wear a sample size because it's like a 0 or a 2, it makes you feel bad about yourself," the singer-actress, 22, tells Seventeen in its March issue. "To go to a photo shoot, it's like, 'Ugh, God, can't you just at least get a regular size, like a 6 or 8 or something?' "

    But, she says, she's come to terms with it.

    "I'm not like a toothpick, and I never will be. I'm just a regular-looking person – and that's okay. It's taken a while to come to grips with that since it's definitely not the norm in my business. But like, who cares?

    "If anything, that makes someone more special," she says, and adds with a laugh, "or at least that's what I tell myself!"

    She should be very pleased with her size, she looks great! Mandy is a pretty girl and she seems to have a good bit of sense too.

    Quite a rarity in Hollyweird!!

    According to my friend Google, she's 5'9" and 108 lbs. I'd be surprised if she is a size 6 or 8.

    I don't know what size she is but she's a very tall girl and has a larger frame than I realized until I saw a pic of her standing next to someone much shorter and small boned. No way was she fat in that pic, just looked like a giant by comparison.

    Why is every other thread on here about weight now?
    We're obsessed. Let's atleast keep it out of this forumn, this ain't Hollywood ladies and we can eat what we want.

    I don't think it's true now then she was 15 or 16 and thin. She gained a some weight.

    I know that she's 5'9", but I would say she's probably about 120-130lbs.

    When she said she was never a toothpick, thats a lie. She was very thin back in her Candy days, she was about 16 years old then.

    I REALLY like her and think she is the perfect size. How awful, at 5 ft 9 in and being a size 6 and feeling fat. But you know what? I totally understand and I'm not "in the industry"...everything and everyone is about being thin, it's everywhere and I'm getting a fucking complex.

    It doesn't matter, infact the weight portion should be taken out entirely. You're obsessed. So some of you will never be skinny and some of you will never have the curves you want. Suddenly 'weight' is the topic on everyone's mind. We may aswell be celebrities. Y'know, it is ok to be a size 0 and it is ok to be a size 8 or 9 or 10 or 12. Let's focus on entertaining ourselves by mocking people like, Paris Hilton.

    what im curious about (and this is probably dumb question) is when they are talking about sizes do they mean a size in womens' sizes, juniors, misses?? cuz there's a difference in a 6 in women's vs juniors size 6. anyone??

    I think Juniors sizes are odd numbered and Misses/Women's are even. Misses are cut a tad fuller in the hips. This is actually closer to how most women are built after a certain age, regardless of size. But unfortunately, in fashion the ideal bod is a that of a teen that hasn't quite finished filling out yet.
