"Curvy is just a polite way of saying fat. And I’m not,” Simone notes in excerpts of an interview attributed to the April issue of the Canadian women’s magazine Glow, as picked up around the web. “Curvy and voluptuous—that one also got dragged through the mud, that poor word."
Hollywood is really having a backlash against words to describe the not svelte or willowy actresses. Remember when "Mad Men" star, Christina Hendricks had a meltdown when an Australian fashion editor interviewer described her as fuller-figured?
Hendricks reportedly said later, "I think calling me full-figured is just rude."
Maybe they should concentrate more on what it means by having the word associated with them. Instead of seeing "curvy" as a slur, regard it as a compliment. Otherwise, regardless of how much body acceptance a person preaches, it sounds like protests.
