Emma Thompson Thinks Losing Weight Is Stupid

And it is, if you're already a skinny actress.

Emma Thompson threatened to quit a film after the company asked co-star Hayley Atwell to lose weight for her role. The two will star together alongside Michael Gambon (a.k.a. replacement Dumbledore) in a remake of Brideshead Revisited.

I think Emma Thompson is just awesome for this. Generally, unless they are playing an anorexic or a heroin addict, there's no reason for actresses to lose weight for a film. First off, most of them are already really skinny or they wouldn't be working. Second, why can't we agree that whatever weight someone's body does naturally is beautiful for that person?
