Celebrities and their weight issues

Sort by: Showing 20 items

Dramatic weight change

Some look better at their before, some look better at their after. I am not judging, I am just simply stating that they have undergone some dramatic weight change.
Also, it might be due to health related issues, or due to aging. Please don't be all so offended.

Average listal rating (828 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating
5. Lindsay Lohan

I have a reason to put her here: her weight is changing all the time. It might not be extreme, but it's going up and down, constantly, and it's extremely unhealthy.

Average listal rating (384 ratings) 4.9  IMDB Rating
6. Tara Reid

Basically the same reason as Lindsay.
Lee's rating:

Not-so dramatic weight change

You get the point.
Average listal rating (244 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
7. Gemma Ward

She's here because her weight change was super quick. It happened in less than half a year, and although I think she looks better now, I still do not agree with something so drastic.

15. Daniel Johns
In mid-2004, Daniel Johns interviewed on ABC Television and talked about his struggles with anorexia. After finally winning the battle with anorexia, he had also had to fight arthritis only 2 years later.

Average listal rating (363 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating
16. Elton John
Through the late 1980′s, Elton John struggled with bulimia and drug abuse. This pop superstar from the 1970′s went through other struggles involving sexual identity and alcoholism. In 1991 he founded the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

Average listal rating (338 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating
17. Kate Moss
The original ‘waif’, this model not only struggled with anorexia but drug abuse. Being the feature model for a number of high-end products, her downfall came in 2001, when she went into a drug induced coma and had to be sent to the hospital.
Lee's rating:

Average listal rating (344 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating
18. Mary-Kate Olsen
In 2004, right after her 18th birthday, Mary-Kate Olsen (from the Olsen twins) showed dramatic weight loss. That same year she hired a weight-coach to help her gain back her weight and received treatment for anorexia, slowly making a comeback. It is suspected that she is once again dealing with anorexia, 3 years later.

19. Nicole Richie
Since at least early 2006, Nicole Richie has seemed to be struggling with anorexia. To this day she denies that she is dealing with an eating disorder, but with a little bit of research it’s not hard to see that a photo is worth a thousand words.

Average listal rating (111 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
20. Princess Diana
Diana’s first public confession of dealing with bulimia was in 1994. She had first struggled with it in 1981, just before her marriage. It plagued her all the way through 1992, where she started to get a foothold on beating it. Since then, she fought to help others deal with bulimia, and her death in 1997 marked a major decrease in bulimic incidents.

My only reason to make this list is because I don't agree with the example society present to us. They present women who are stick-thin, they photoshop them into Barbies, but they "forget" to mention that these people are just like us, they have their issues too. And the issues in this list are presented in the way of weight issues. You can find other lists here on self harm, drugs, alcoholism, smoking, etc, etc.

I don't see anything wrong with Catherine Zeta-Jones body...
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Aug 6 9:14
I don't think there's something wrong with her body either, in fact I think she's very beautiful! It's just that she does have some weight issues. One day she's stick-thin and the next day she's all curvy. It's about the weight-change. And she's quite famous for her dieting and then gaining all the weight back...

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Britney Spears - had children.

Lindsey Lohan and Tara Reid - booze and drugs (ugh!)
Posted: 2 years, 6 months ago at Oct 16 9:50
Catherine is very beautiful.
Great list. :)

jessica and catherine are still hot!
Posted: 2 years, 5 months ago at Oct 31 10:18
Having a baby is hardly a "weight issue". Celebrity bodies after having kids is a better name for another list alltogether.

christina aguilera?
Posted: 2 years, 5 months ago at Nov 2 13:08
By weight issues I mean constantly losing and gaining weight! I am talking about the change, not about their sizes. If you actually look at the past of some of them, you can see either eating disorder, or something similar...
Posted: 2 years, 2 months ago at Jan 22 18:57
Yeah, I'd say a lot of them actually look much healthier as larger women. You can tell some of the fluctuations are due to age or kids, like Karolina, but Catherine and Mischa both looks so incredible with that extra weight.
Posted: 2 years, 2 months ago at Jan 27 15:15
I absolutely agree about Catherine and Karolina, and Misha's ideal is IMHO somewhere in between those two pictures :)
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Mar 18 16:54
The list is a list of issues, not problems. Changing weight substantially is an issue (regardless of whether they need to or not) :P

Nice list :)

Are you taking suggestions?
Lily Allen... She said that she was bulimic

And Demi Lovato?

Thank you GreenTissueBox!!!! Will add :)
And Frank please read my previous comments :)

Mariah looks GORGEOUS with the extra weight. That is a lot of fine woman right there!

I used to have the biggest crush on Tara Reid back in high school.
What the hell happened!?!? Did she take notes from Farah Fawcett?
EDIT: Okay, that's an old picture, she looks better now.
Posted: 1 year, 4 months ago at Dec 14 21:52
Oh big deal, I don't really think any of them are fat. I know they chose a job where they'd be in public scrutiny 24 7, but I feel bad for how self-conscious all these celebrities are.
