Salma Hayek: fat by Hollywood standards

See that image over there on the right? That is Hollywood’s idea of what “fat” is when it comes to women:

Sexy Salma Hayek beefed up for her role opposite Farrell in Ask the Dust by scoffing handburgers. The Latino lovely decided she wasn’t curvy enough for the movie and found a fast food laid on by on-set caterers to help her out. “I ate lots of hamburgers,” says Hayek. “They had a good hamburger place. I thought the character should be 1930s but Mexican so I needed a little extra weight. Actually I put a lot of weight on and I actually haven’t been able to lose all of it.” Thankfully the actress came to terms with her new look through a nude scene for the film. “Once I got naked with all that weight, I said, ‘You know what? It’s okay.’ So I sort of stayed up since then.”

She hasn’t been able to lose all of it? Who in their right mind would want her to lose all of it? Look at her at the Oscars:

Couldn’t you just eat her up? Sheesh.

(My review of Ask the Dust is here. Also: that nude scene? Hayek is delicious and luscious. So is Colin Farrell, for that matter: nude and delicious. Not that I would recommend you see the movie merely on that basis.)
