I agree that it's rather sad that she's portrayed as being so fat when she looks like she's at an average weight.

I'm not "fat" but I'm not "skinny" either...I always think of myself as fat however...

The media image portrayed of what women should look like is very unrealistic IMO.

everytime I watch Chicago I feel like a cow. All those ladies in the movie *besides Queen Latifah* were cut and in the best shape.

I saw the movie last night, and I didn't think she looked bad at all she wore a miniskirt and tights many times, and her legs looked fantastic!

Her chest was amazing too

i saw this movie last night too and i noticed that she looked fine, except in the scene where she wears the gold dress. they picked a dress that would've fit renee as she normally looks, but put it on her when she was 30 pounds heavier. every other time i thought 'wow, she looks so NORMAL."

i agree with others, i only think renee looks good with the "extra" weight (ala bridget jones). the ridiculous physical descriptions of her character in the series are a slap in the face to women of a normal, healthy weight. there's a difference between perhaps needing to tone up to look one's best and being "overweight" or "fat".

I haven't seen the new film, but in the book there's a big deal made when bridget finally manages to lose the weight she's been obsessing about, and get down to 8 stone, and all her friends ask her if she's ill and tell her she looked better before.

In the books, the point is always made taht she isn't actually fat, she just thinks she is (like a hell of a lot of women in today's society)

I don't get why the reviewers put so much emphasis on Bridget Jones' weight. She's not fat at all. I wish I could switch with her. It a shame hollywood tries to portray her as being fat. I agree with the remarks about Renee's facial features. When she talks on interviews it looks like her eyes are closed and cheeks are sucked in.

I watched the first movie and I saw the commercial/trailor for this one and I'd say she is a bit chubby. Not "fat" or "unhealthy fat", but a bit overweight.

Compare it Jerry Maguire or any other movie where she has her normal weight and you will see what I mean.

I think Hollywood, media who ever you want to blame do portray an almost impossible body type, but on the other hand I think most "average" Americans are overweight. Somewhere in between would be nice...and much healthier.

She's beautiful with the weight. She's not fat at all. Women are better with a little meat to em anyway.

She looks dreadful "normally".
