there's a difference between those who look better with weight because they are usually super skinny, and those that look better when they are meaty.

Madonna looked great with the chubby belly.

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......

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.

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.

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

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.

Brad Pitt's Skinny Fetish

BRAD PITT likes his women THIN – scary skinny thin!

ANGELINA JOLIE has scared fans with her gaunt, skeletal figure – and it appears Brad Pitt is the architect of her frightening weight loss. The reigning Hollywood heartthrob prefers his ladies to be rail-thin, and he lets them know it, say insiders.

“Brad doesn’t come out and demand his women be skinny, but in a not-so-subtle manner, he drops hints,” revealed a close source. “If he’s constantly comparing his current girlfriend with his exes, it has to start making them feel self-conscious about their bodies.”

The “Moneyball” star, 48, likes his women super-thin for their red-carpet appearances, says the close source. When Angelina, 36, first met Brad on the set of “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” in 2004, she weighed 115 pounds, which seemed healthy for her 5-foot-7 frame. “But now she’s wasting away at less than 100 pounds!” declared an insider. Brad is also said to have hinted that Jennifer Aniston needed to drop a few pounds when they first started dating. “He used to talk to her about how thin and fashionable his former girlfriends Juliette Lewis and Gwyneth Paltrow were,” said the close source. “It was a way to motivate her.” Jen lost the curves she used to show off on “Friends”and the 5-foot-5 1/2 actress dropped to a waifish 109 pounds. Today, Jen, 43, is dating actor/ screenwriter Justin Theroux and is a shapely 120 pounds.

When Brad dated Gwyneth Paltrow for three years in the 1990s, the 5-foot-9 stunner “always felt she was too heavy for him,” revealed the close source. In 1996, she shrunk down to a boney 101 pounds for the premiere of her film “Emma.” But today, as a working mom, “The Avengers” star, 39, looks fab at 120 pounds. And “Natural Born Killers” babe Juliette Lewis, 38, who was with Brad from 1989 to 1993, boasts a killer 120-pound body.However, when the 5-foot-6 star dated Pitt, the close source says she was 15 pounds lighter and “all skin and bones.”

For one thing Aniston just announced last week that she weighs 106 lbs currently. She doesn't weigh 120.

I also don't believe Brad or any man would prefer skeletal Angie to the Angie he met in Mr and Mrs Smith.

That article says Angie weighs 90ish lbs at 5ft 8in ? She's very thin but that would be deathly thin.
