I absolutely agree with Luminosa.
There was an article along these lines about Halle Berry a little while ago, in which she made some remarkably enthusiastic comments about being curvier.
The catch? She was pregnant at the time.
But if you read the piece, it sounds like her enthusiasm was not motherhood-related, but rather, she specifically felt good about being heavier, and about being able to eat.
HALLE BERRY has told how she can finally relax on the red carpet now she is pregnant.
The Oscar-winning actress - who is seven months pregnant with her first child with partner GABRIEL AUBRY - was presented with the Desert Palm Achievement Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Saturday night and revealed she loved not trying to be thin.
Halle confessed: "It is true that I am three times the girl I usually am.
"I have to say there are some really wonderful things that come along with that.
"This is the first red carpet that I've really walked down where I didn't have to think about holding in my stomach - because I can't."
She added: "It's the first time I've been to an awards show where they served a meal and I actually ate it - the whole thing.
"I was eating off everybody else's plate and that felt very liberating and good."
I wish movie stars would let themselves go a bit more often.
Even Halle herself has admitted in the past that her fuller figure has left her feeling better than ever.
"I feel more sexy now than I've ever felt," she said.
"Really, truly, sexy.
"I put on a great dress and sometimes I'm like: 'OK! I don't look so bad,' but I never felt sexy in the way I feel sexy now."
So if she feels "liberated" and "more sexy now" and "wonderful" while she's bigger, as she says, then why don't stars allow themselves to look curvier all the time? Why wait for the "excuse" of being pregnant?
Morever, why doesn't the media applaud the curvier look of actresses (e.g., Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson) when they gain weight naturally, not through pregnancy?
At any rate, even if the celebrities don't permit themselves this indulgence, one wishes that most women would. It clearly leads to greater self-satisfaction and a happier life.
