Candice Bergen is having her cake and eating it too├óΓé¼┬ª literally!
In her upcoming memoir A Fine Romance, the 68-year-old does away with Hollywood’s obsession with being thin and unapologetically declares herself as a full-figured woman!
She flat out says:
“Let me just come right out and say it: I am fat”
The Murphy Brown star writes about her weight gain throughout the years, but isn’t the least bit remorseful! In fact, she totally owns her love of food!
The actress exclaims:
“In the past 15 years… I have put on 30 pounds. I live to eat. None of this ├óΓé¼╦£eat to live’ stuff is for me. I am a champion eater. No carb is safe ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ no fat, either.”‘
The Oscar nominee even tells a story of when she was fat shamed by a stuffy woman at a party├óΓé¼┬ª but didn’t care for her unsolicited opinion!
“At a recent dinner party I shared bread and olive oil, followed by chocolate ice cream with my husband. A woman near me looked at me, appalled, and I thought, ‘I don’t care’ ├óΓé¼┬ª [Thin women] maintain their weight by routinely vomiting after major meals consisting of a slice of steak or a filet of fish. I am incapable of this.”‘
You go, girl! Life is too short to deprive yourself!
We totally LOVE Candice’s attitude towards food and we hope other actresses take note.
