Zooey Deschanel thinks Hollywood stars are too thin.
The New Girl
actress isn't a fan of the recent trend of stick thin actresses and thinks many of her contemporaries look "much, much too skinny." In an interview for the February 2013 issue of Glamour
, she said: "Actresses have definitely gotten thinner over the course of my lifetime. Women I admired growing up - Debra Winger, Diane Keaton, Meryl Streep - were all beautiful and thin, but not too thin. There are a lot of actresses who are unhealthy - skinny - much, much too skinny. You can't Pilates to that. I'm a very small person, and if I lost 15 pounds, I'd look like them; it's scary. For young girls, what does that say? You need to look this way to be successful? That's not
true. You do not need to look or be anorexic to be successful in Hollywood. The range of what's acceptable is larger than what people believe."
