Celebs that actually look better with a *little* more weight on 'em
Adam Levine could use some more pounds. That super-skinny look is not cute on men.
Robert DeNiro. When he did "True Confessions" he was still carrying some of the weight from his role in "Raging Bull", and I think he looked the best he's ever looked. He was very hot in his clerical garb too.
I'm surprised Luke Evans name isn't the first name on this list.
He was luscious in Tamara Drewe, and he went to the chiseled look in Immortals.
Hmmm. . . not likey.
The entire Desperate Housewives cast.
Jennifer Connally, she was gorgeous before she began starving herself.
Definitively Jennifer C.
Madonna and Kate Winslet
Madonna and Janet
Everyone looks like shit when they starve themselves/work out like bunnies. Kinda pointless naming super skinny actresses like SJP and Cox.
I agree with Sara Rue, Kate Winslet, Neve Campbell. Jen Aniston looks fine imo.
Star Jones looked better with a *lot* more weight on her.
Jennifer Connelly used to be a curvy, busty babe. In later years she became paper thin and seemingly flat chested. They say when a woman loses weight, her bust goes down as well, but Jenn looks like she went down several cup sizes. Did she have a breast reduction?
Yes, Jennifer Connelly.
R43 - She had children, which can result in changes in breast size. After each child, her boobs shrunk.
An obvious one - Anne Hathaway.
Another vote for Adam Levine. I think he is sexier with a few pounds on him.
I believe Connelly admitted to a breast reduction.
Pretty sure she did not R51
Luke Evans needs to fill out some more.
Nicole Kidman - cute gut and ass in the scifi movie, rail thin in photos
Jude Law - gaunt
Demi Moore - no tone, just bone
Jennifer Connelly, Courtney Cox,and Famke Janssen would all look great if they each gained 10 pounds.
Rose McGowan's face would look so much better if she gained weight instead of using fillers.
Did anyone mention Karen Carpenter yet?
r29 and r230 have the best example. Jennifer Connelly at a more normal weight is gorgeous, beautiful skin, lustrous hair, lovely green eyes and just enough curves and edge to not be only pretty. Modern knockout.
Mostly we see her angular, slightly mannish, stripped lean and too bony.
Ditto that Matthew McBongo fool. In his ab fixation he goes from lick me luscious skin and body to dehydrated puppet cheeks and funny legs, big skull on a toned stick.
Just cuz they should gain 10......
Kelly Lee Ripa
Yes, Kelly looks unwell. Malnutrition has a certain look, and Kelly has it.
She does tend to look "chubby" at a normal weight, but so be it. She also looks better and much younger.
No, Jennifer Connelly never admitted to a breast reduction. Her rep denied she ever had one when this talk started. Her boobs shrunk and sank like almost all mother's boobs do. They just need a good bra to gather them up and put them back in place. Then I guess people will say she had a boob enlargement.
She is still fine being thinner than her Rocketeer days but I must admit she is very thin now. She's a runner and that is not good for women as they age.
Here's Jennifer a few years ago - thinner but still beautiful.
Angelina Jolie. She looks amazing with some curvature.
Absolutely not to any of this. You all must be grafting to your sofas. No one looks better obese than healthy. You're fucking delusional from your sugar highs. Put down the cake and look at yourself a fucking mirror.

Wow, you are a fucking moron with a huge reading comprehension problem. Where did OP say "Who looks better obese than healthy?"
Your stupidity amazes me.
Thread about Jennifer C's weight loss at link:
"Jennifer Connelly has lost a ton of weight and her friends are worried that she has become anorexic. My bff is a friend of hers and apparently her husband made a crack about her getting old and fat (asshole) and she freaked out."
I want Luke Evans to gain back his 30 pounds -- STAT!
I'm sick of looking at his skinny butt. : )
Isn't there a saying -- "After 40, it's either your face or your ass."
definitely Star Jones. She now looks like a cross
between a bug-eyed alien & the Saggy
This black lady I know says he looks like a lollipop head.
Luke posted a picture and his followers are telling him to eat. LOL!
Conventional wisdom of twenty or thirty years ago was that the camera puts 40 pounds on you and you have to be underweight in order to look normal weight. But there have been huge technological advances in photography and cinematography in recent years and it might just be that models and actors really don't need to fuck with their weight quite as much as they used to in order to register well on camera.
Star didn't look good either skinny or fat.
Clooney was a sexy daddy with the Syriana weight.
Adam Levine looks like a fem anorexic and too unmanly to be sexy. He needs to bulk up.
Matthew McConaughey should never lose weight again, ever.
Donald Faison from Scrubs looked quite cute chunky.
Bobby Cannavale has been a hot, meaty hunk recently.
Jennifer Anniston was actually cute on 'Friends' before she started starving herself post Brad Pitt.
The Kelly Rowland, when she has chunky thighs, is actually sexier than Beyonce.
I think JA's starving herself was more during Brad Pitt. Brad likes em skinny.
Kelly Rowland is very sexy and just needs better songs. She has a self-aware sex appeal that Beyonce lacks.

Except, Luke Evans is in his early thirties, but the saying is true for all ages I think.
Boy, I wish he would just eat and get his Tamara Drew body back.
What's a Tamara Drew body, R82, and how did Luke Evans have one?
Adam Rodriguez, he was a little too lean in the Magic Mike movie
Colton Haynes would look good if he gained 10 to 20 pounds of fat
Kerry Washington is gorgeous but she has been in bobble-head territory recently
I think slim suits Kerry.
Slim does work for Kerry, but she is no beauty. She's just average.
[quote]What's a Tamara Drew body, [R82], and how did Luke Evans have one?[/quote]
It's the body from the movie, Tamara Drew.
Here it is:
I think Kelly Rowland looks fine. Beautiful big thighs much sexier on her than Beyonce,
I was reffering to the Superbowl Performance
Angelina Jolie owns this thread. She was sexy in the Lara Croft movies and now she's just bones and skin
Al Roker. Damn, does he look pitiful.
I thought Reese Witherspoon looked much better last night with some of that baby weight still attached.
Agreed R94 Reese carries weight well. She wasn't skinny in her youth either, most of the time.
Queen Latifah is one celebrity I hope never becomes stick thin.
She carries her weight magnificently and makes curves sexy. And she dresses well for her size.
Totally agree R99
I know it's medications and illness but Candice Bergen and Kathleen Turner both could stand to drop about twenty five pounds each.
The time she was sexiest to straight men was when she had a bit of meat on her in the Virgin era. That is sexy as opposed to beautiful or pretty, people who are average in looks can still be hot, among the hottest - especially as they seem accessible. It's been said that Debbie Harry was too beautiful for most girls to relate to, so that's why Madge took over.
With Vadge it was in the way she carried herself - her sluttiness and confidence - and the smoke and mirrors soft lens videos by the likes of Mary Lambert. Even if her features were harsh unlike idol Monroe, she gave good face for the camera.
Though she worked on her body in the 80s and became skinny, she still looked good right up to 1990. She was never really "fat" though, not her natural body type.
But I wouldn't put it past her with her desperation now to stay in the spotlight at all costs to get fat and then lose it for some coverage.
The rapid ageing started early on. She looked like shit, especially in the Bedtime Stories era when she was supposedly doing drugs. That's when she first had work had done - though an early nose job or 2 has been alleged. Early pics show she unlike many other celebs basically looked the same.
This was 1991
Madonna used steroids when she was with Guy, HGH. Her jaw looked like a dude's in her purple disco dress. THAT is what fucked her up for good
Victoria Beckham for sure. She was so attractive in her Spice Girls days, body-wise. Now.. ugh!
Stephen Fry looked sort of scary when he lost all that weight. He gained back a little and looked better.
R103 is right about Madonna, during her early career she was curvy and it gave her an earthy sex appeal that is now long gone. She wasn't fat, but she had natural curves and seemed totally comfortable with the body nature gave her, something that is also long gone.
The reason she's so thin now is to demonstrate her control over that body. It doesn't look good, but she's forced her body to look the way she wants it to look, rather than the way nature intends.
I disagree about Jennifer Hudson. I love her as thin. She's so pretty now.
Tom Selleck looks better now that he is older and heavier. Back in the Magnum days, his face had a gaunt quality. It looked as if he had been dieting heavy. Not that he wasn't hot looking. He got better as he aged and got heavier, IMHO.
Jennifer Hudson looks odd thin.
Agree about Jennifer Hudson. She's the only celeb whose looks improved with weight loss.
