Fat vs. Ugly
At the movie the other night (it was about global peace and environmental awareness) I heard two old ladies RAILING on fat people. Of course, if I wasn't at a peace promoting movie, I would have let them have it. They went on and on about how disgusting fat people were and how they just couldn't understand how people could "let themselves look like that." Ohhhhh my blood was boiling and so was the big guy two seats down. Did they NOT notice him I wondered? Didn't they realise how rude and judgemental they were being?
Hm! I wanted to say so many things. One of which was, SOME PEOPLE AREN'T BORN WITH A DANCER BODY and that's OK you miserable old hags!! Thank goodness the peacemaker (Miles) was with me. He saved the lives of these old bittys from the wrath of MALENA's big mouth. There is NO reason to insult someone's size, creed or color. PERIOD, the end.
Let's look at this issue for a moment. People come in all shapes and sizes and they are beautiful. Example:
Would John Goodman, John Candy, Chris Farley, Sam Kinison, Rosie O'Donnell and Rosanne be as funny if they were skinny as a rail? NO! Part of their charm as actors is they are round, outspoken and cuddly. I for one, wouldn't like Dom DeLuise is he wasn't "fat". The same goes for natually thin people like Calista Flockhart who took enormous slack for being "anorexic", which she is NOT. Don't people have better things to do than rip on other people's size?
Some idiot chic at a party came up to me and said on how "heavy" I was and how bad it must make me feel to be such a " big girl" and how it must affect my acting career. (A size 7, at 5'10" is big in LA) America Ferrera is doing JUST FINE! I just laughed, REALLY LOUD AND HARD and said,
"Not as bad as it would feel to be a talentless, brainless bimbo like you!"
Everyone laughed and she didn't say a THING to me all night. Sometimes, MALENA just can't be stopped.
GIRL POWER! Can I get a woah woah!
