Why doesn't she eat?


Victory Beckham greets fans as she arrives at a hotel in Denver, Colo., on Friday, Aug. 7, 2009, for a guest judging appearance on a call back audition for the American Idol show.

1. Eating is so overrated
plus it makes you fat.

4. Scary as hell. This starvation thing in Hollywood is really disturbing. My husband loathes that
stick figure look (as I think many men do, at least in his experience, the men he knows like women with curves, not jagged bones sticking out)

7. It's considered more attractive (fashion wise) for the clothing to HANG off the body rather than to
curve around those pesky hips, tummies, breasts.

5. Wow, you can totally see all her ribs behind her fake boobs.
She has no muscles left. She really is down to almost a skeleton. :(

I hate to think that she's a role model for people with eating disorders.

16. I know
I used to have it myself. I quit it when my health started to go down hill. She knows she has a problem, her own husband has said as much. I hope she gets the help she needs but in the meantime, she's getting modeling contracts and people are trying to copy her. That's fucked up.

55. possible depression.
some people eat when depressed, others can't. I'm one of those that can't eat if I'm depressed. The smallest I got because of it was 97lbs, that was when my father died 15 years ago. My sister has the same problem.

I'm holding at 115 at the moment.

37. Do all of the models/celebs that look like that have an eating disorder?
Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 08:55 PM by Hippo_Tron
I know that anorexia isn't a vanity issue and that it is an illness. But are all of these people really anorexic or are some of them just doing what it takes to be on top like an athlete who does steroids?

38. Damned if I know
The person pictured has carried it beyond the extreme of "heroin chic" and has entered "Dachau deprivation."



This instance appears to be a clear case of an eating disorder.


BTW, isn't that "Posh Spice"?

But I'm pretty sure the reason is the zombie hordes are trying to keep things on the downlow until their numbers build.

24. That girl needs a sammich.
It hurts to look at her. I've read blind items on gossip blogs about her having an eating disorder. I don't throw that term around lightly, but I really think she does. It's sad. When I've heard her interviewed, she comes across as very sweet.

34. You know how you can tell the difference between a naturally skinny girl and an anorexic?
The natural doesn't look like skin stretched over bones.

I like women in all shapes and sizes, but I don't like walking skeletons.

Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 09:21 PM by GoddessOfGuinness
If someone posted a pic of me here and said, "Why doesn't she diet?" I know that a lot of DUers would come down hard on them.

Yes, I despise the standards of "beauty" that society has imposed upon women and men. I hate the fact that we're encouraged to diet when we don't fall within certain guidelines, instead of examining habits and changing them. But I don't think putting thin people down is a solution to that.

Not everybody who is large is guilty of gluttony; and not every thin person is guilty of self-starvation. Some are. Big whoop. We should stop judging people based on their size.

No offense intended, truly...

58. A woman's appearance always justifies criticism
Overweight, underweight, fuckable, ugly. Regardless of what a woman looks like, her appearance is always open for discussion.

It does get old, doesn't it?

49. I agree that we shouldn't put down ill people
which she obviously is.

However, someone that looks like that is not naturally thin- they're either anorexic or unable to procure food.
What really blows is that some see this kind of look as an ideal to be emulated.

51. I think she looks pretty good.
Within the past year, I have lost 20 pounds and would not mind being as thin as she is. As soneome said, I forgot who, but I think it was the Dutchess of Windsor: A woman can never be too rich or too thin.
