How Does Hollywood Manipulate Our Beauty Standards?
You know when you watch an old TV show or movie and think, “how tf did we think this was ok?” Remy and Emily get into just that on today’s episode, re: fatphobia in Hollywood. They look back on shows that were all about weight loss and looks—Biggest Loser, The Swan—and wonder, how did they even cast for shows like this? This leads into a convo about the v problematic credits used in old Sex and the City episodes, before Remy and Emily debrief some famous fat-suit characters: Fat Monica in Friends, Bruce in Matilda, Fat Bastard in Austin Powers, just to name a few. They wrap up discussing the *mass amounts* of body image-focused ads we see, before sharing a few shows that are actually getting body diversity right.
