Remember when only Shelly Winters was the only fat actress?

What happened to the world. Now fat women are EVERYWHERE in the movies.

Your use of the word ONLY is redundant. You ONLY needed to say it once, you fat whore!

And she was in every single movie that featured a fat woman.

R2 She wasn't a good actress or personality.

[quote]No makeup. No hair arrangement, because our hair was sopping wet all the time, Shelley Winters really looked awful. She SAYS she puts on weight for her roles, but actually she's that way to begin with. She lost a little weight on this picture. I defended Shelley a lot to everyone who hated her."

But playing fat parts didn't require any acting.

Kate Smith also made a movie and her dancing is hilarious.

Shelley (note the spelling) was an excellent actress. And while I too am guilty of making fat jokes about her in her huge white underwear in The Poseidon Adventure, she gave a very effective and moving performance.

I looked up IMDB and it mentions no fat actresses prior to 1980.

The only fatties were comediennes.

Miss Hedren obviously never met Marie Dressler.

Hattie McDaniels and Louise Beavers weren't exactly toothpicks.

Those people mentioned in the last two posts were comics, supporting players or figures of derision.

For those who think Winters wasn't a good actress watch The Diary of Anne Frank (1959), Lolita (1962) Alfie (1966) and Next Stop Greenwich Village (1976)

Her talent doesn't matter, she was fat!

Shelley Winters may have made a wonderful writer or watchmaker. But the cinema is a visual medium.

No fat people can be depicted on screen? Some people think that same sex kissing shouldn't be shown.

Jayne Mansfield was kind of fat.

No, they're not. 90% of actresses are underweight.
