Damares Ocona Perez writes: "Hollywood is probably the only place on earth where it's acceptable for a woman who weighs 105 pounds to be told she's fat". Luckily, more and more Hollywood starlets are proudly speaking out about staying at a healthy weight and refusing to cave to crazy body-weight demands. The scary part? Production companies seem to have no qualms demanding women to lose weight, and some have even suggested they leave the industry altogether. Thankfully, more and more women of Hollywood are shutting down these dangerous ways of thinking.
Here with us today to further break this down is Patrika Darbo. Patrika won the inaugural Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Performer Short form for the internet series Acting Dead. She has also been nominated 3 times for Daytime Emmy Awards. She is a television Academy Governor and has worked for over 35 years in film and television. She is known to daytime audiences for her popular roles on The Bold & The Beautiful and Days of Our Lives. She has recurred on Desperate Housewives and Studio City, currently on Amazon. And too many more shows to name.
