CELEBRITY Criticism

Can you imagine a world where everyone looks similar? A world where body measurements and whatever standards deemed ideal by society would be met by every single person? It would be pretty boring. We come in all shapes and sizes, and that should be celebrated, not demonized.

Celebrities, however, are exposed to much wider audience, and their image is constantly under harsh scrutiny by the public and the media. Luckily, many of these stars have clapped back at body-shamers.

Kate Winslet slammed the media's "straight-up cruel" fixation on her weight in a new interview with The Guardian, describing the impact it had on her self-esteem as a young actress.

"It was almost laughable how shocking, how critical, how straight-up cruel tabloid journalists were to me," she said. "I was still figuring out who the hell I bloody well was! They would comment on my size, they'd estimate what I weighed, they'd print the supposed diet I was on. It was critical and horrible and so upsetting to read."

Fortunately now she feels the industry has been changing, but the change is still much too slow. From "too fat" to "too skinny" and everything in between, in this gallery you'll learn more about how your favorite celebs have been body shamed. Click through.
