1. Amy WinehouseFirst comes the sad, sad story of a very gifted young musician: Amy Winehouse. We all know that she could have become one of the world’s most famous singers, but when drugs and alcohol crossed her way at celebrity partys she basically started destroying herself. Every now and then you see her emaciated body in the news, but the stories always focus on her behaviour rather than her music. I guess if she goes on like that she won’t survive much longer!
2. Whitney HoustonShe’s definitely one of my all time favourite singers and her voice is unique, but just like many other celebrities Whitney Houston is suffering from some serious eating disorders. Otherwise she wouldn’t have ended up with the body she has in the above picture. This is what stress, alcohol, drugs and an abusive husband can make out of a beautiful, beautiful woman. It’s a shame! I really hope that she’ll be able to start her career again so that the world can enjoy her amazing voice and probably also see her in a better condition on stage again.
3. Nicole RichieNicole Richie, daughter of famous singer Lionel Richie, is fortunately already doing better now. In 2006 after doing two seasons of “The simple life” with her BFF Paris Hilton she was really scary thin. In the reality TV show she obviously was the heavier one of the two which led to her thinking that she needed to lose weight. At 90lbs you saw all of her bones sticking out and luckily she also realized that she was too thin and put on weight with the help of a nutritionist. Let’s hope that we never see her like that again.
4. Courtney LoveCurt Cobain’s former wife is known as an enfant terrible. If she is around you never know what happens. weight has been almost as unstable as her mood. In 2007 she lost 55 pounds within just a couple of months and looked awfully skinny afterwards as you can see in the picture. Recent newspaper reports feature pictures of her that show Courtney looking really annorexic. I guess now she can’t deny that she has weight issues anymore. Her body looks dangerously thin! I hope that the latest news reports wake her up, so that she understands that her weight isn’t healthy anymore!
5. Keira KnightleyKeira Knightley hasn’t got any eating disorder – her skinny frame is just due to good genes – yes, sure!! How often have we heard that story? I look at her ribs and hip bones sticking out and can’t help to think that this young, talented actress has a problem. In the before and after picture you can see how much better Keira would look with just a few pounds more. Another actress who’s fallen vitctim to Hollywood’s skinny craze. What a shame!
6. Allegra VersaceAs the daughter of a world-famous fashion designer you’d expect you’d have no problems, but Allegra Versace has a big one: her weight. Over the years there were lots of speculations that Allegra was suffering from an eating disorder and it was finally confirmed that the niece of Gianni Versace was anorexic in 2007. She is now undergoing treatment and we should hope that we won’t see pictures of her so horribly skinny again in the future.
7. Tori SpellingTori Spelling the famous 90210 actress shocked the world with her extremely thin frame. At under 90 pounds petite Tori doesn’t look healthy any more. She lost weight really fast after giving birth to her second child. Like so many mothers in Hollywood the first thing she focused her energy on was her weight, not her newborn. A trend that is definitely scary! In the side by side pictures she looks already skinny on the left, but the right picture makes you wonder if the anorexia rumors are true!
8. Victoria BeckhamVictoria Beckham, former Spice Girl and wife of British David Beckham, has just recently been named celebrity with the worst body – and I completely agree. When Victoria was still Posh Spice she had a nice and normal physique, but after becoming wife of David she focused all her energy on becoming a role model concerning fashion and also followed the “skinny celebrity” trend when she and her hubby moved to America. Because of her weight at around 68lbs it was often speculated that she has an eating disorder but she always denies it – we don’t believe you Victoria!
9. Lindsay LohanLindsay has appeared in movies and films from a very early age on. Like most child actors she is trying to continue to stay popular as a celebrity, but it seems that the scandals around her drinking problems, relationships and her weight are giving her more headlines than her movies. She says that the weight loss is just due to stress and unintentional – but who believes that? The 22 year old actress looks like skin and bones - gain some weight girl!
10. Calista FlockhartThe fiance of Harrison Ford is a successful actress and at 45 years of age already a mature celebrity. Unfortunately like many of her young colleagues Calista has also fallen into the skinny celebrities trap. To the allegations that her weight isn’t healthy anymore Flockhart answers that she has a healthy lifestyle and eats three balanced meals a day.Â However, it seems that she would be better if she included some more calories in her diet plan judging on her skinny frame. She is simply “small boned” Calista Flockhart says – funny that so many Hollywood actresses are, isn’t it?
11. Kate BosworthThe aspiring actress has also suffered from server weight issues in the past. Looking back she says it was a dark time in her life and that she found it scary to lose so much weight. At least she noticed that her stick-thin figure wasn’t healthy anymore unlike many other Hollywood starlets and set out a plan again. Luckily she succeeded and looks much more healthy today.
12. Teri Hatcher
Teri Hatcher was flying high alongside superman in the 1990s TV series Lois and Clark and everyone thought that this had been the peak of her career. She gloriously returned as Susan Mayer in the TV Series desperate housewives. Teri has proven that she is still the awesome actress she used to be, but I guess somehow she felt the need to prove to herself that she can be just as thin as Hollywood’s younger actresses. Diets and lots of sport gave her a ultra trim and skinny physique. But do these legs look lovely? I don’t think so.
