did i mention that she's a size 2?

how dare you have appear to have an ample derriere and appear happy in the same series of pics? shouldn't you be wallowing in self-hatred?

i'm sure you've probably read or heard about this already, but here you are.

and check out the caption:

We know what you ate this summer, Love -- everything!

i'm not the biggest fan of her acting or her singing, but this is gross, gross, gross.

and i don't mean her ass, i mean TMZ's decision to post something like this and the litany of cruel comments that followed. i don't know why i'm shocked. i mean, TMZ and newsstand magazines like it put out entire issues devoted to the BEST and WORST beach bodies and it always horrifies me, and yet i always pick it up, don't i? (did i tell you that the head researcher at one of these mags told me over drinks that they put those "body" issues together when there is absolutely nothing else going on b/c they know it will always sell - specifically to young women? true.)

she has posted on her blog about this, but i can't seem to get to it. i'm guessing her server crashed from all the hits. here'sa quote from an article i found on aol:

"Like all women out there should, I love my body," the 28-year-old actress tells her fans on her blog, adding "A size 2 is not fat! Nor will it ever be. And being a size 0 doesn't make you beautiful.

The former Hanes model says that she has "sat by in silence" for too long, claiming women are unfairly subjected to criticism about their physique."I'm not upset for me, but for all of the girls out there that are struggling with their body image," Hewitt said. Hewitt, who recently starred in the CBS drama 'The Ghost Whisperer,' announced her engagement to Scottish actor Ross McCall in late November.

Despite her frustration, Hewitt has some words of encouragement to fellow women out there: "To all girls with butts, boobs, hips and a waist, put on a bikini – put it on and stay strong."

The sad thing is all the nasty, negative comments people are leaving. The good thing is there are at least as many positive, supportive comments. But you might want to skip it altogether, it's quite disgusting and depressing.

Well, shit, if that's the kind of picture you take at a size 2, I'd probably look like a fucking cow!

Just goes to show you anyone can take an unflattering photo, because she is TINY in real life.

I'd just like to know why TMZ thinks anyone should give a shit. Can you imagine doing that for a living?

These guys have some cool T-shirts for those of us who are not (and don’t want to be) size 0!

isn't it great, though, that there are so many, "damn i wanna hit that" comments (ok crude but still...)? proving again that WOMEN are who who perpetrate stick thin as being the "goal"...

You know what's way depressing? The same magazines that cluck about her blowing all the way up to a size 2 will breathless wait to scold some actress for anorexia. Screw them all.
