Neve Campbell recently sat down with Health magazine to talk about the difficulties of being an actress — specifically about how she hates Hollywood’s beauty standards.
Oh, and she also regrets doing the Atkins diet (who doesn’t).
On diets she has tried and regretted
“I did the Atkins thing about seven years ago, and it didn’t make me feel good at all. And if you look at it, that much fat and meat is just wrong.”
On feeling the pressure to get thin for a role
“There’s definitely a standard that is expected…I watched too many of my dancer friends throwing up. They’d end up really sick, or in the hospital, or not being able to have children. And I won’t do that to myself. Maybe I’m not a stick, but I’m really healthy and happy, and I think I look good.”
On the obsession with celebrities’ weights
“Women put the pressure on ourselves. Let’s look toward the environment and charity, [and] have less of a focus on our appearance…It’s ridiculous. I remember watching CNN once, and on the bottom ticker it said something like, ‘Beyoncé no longer wants to be called Bootylicious.’”
