In these Size Zero days, something occurred to me as I watched Some Like It Hot on FilmFour.
I’ve seen this movie probably a hundred times. I can recite the dialogue along with it if I wanted to. And yet, and yet, today is the first time I noticed La Monroe’s not-insignificant paunch as she flopped onto the bed to tell Josephine and Daphne all about her evening with Shell Oil.
You see, if you possess great charm, appeal and whatever else it is that Marilyn had, you don’t need to be rail-thin, or perfectly toned. Given that I’ve done nowt but eat for the last few weeks, this makes even me feel better.
The reason people seem to be obsessed with the weight and thinness of current actresses/celebutantes and such is this: What else do they have to offer?
