Celebrities - they come in all shapes and sizes. A model can either look like Emily Ratajkowski or Ashley Graham and actors could have the build of Zac Efron or Jonah Hill. We accept them all the same. However, when you're amongst the most photographed people on the planet and you start piling on the pounds, the public is going to notice. In contrast, those who lose weight drastically also become a cause for concern.
Some stars go to scary lengths to keep their weight as low as possible. Clinical professor Dr. Reef Karim told FOX411’s Pop Tarts, "It is such an image-conscious industry. I find more and more women and men are utilizing whatever they can do to try and stay thin. Their livelihood, their ability to be cast in a role, their entire way of making money is completely dependent on staying thin.” Then, there are other stars who are sick of being controlled by their management and told how to look that they break free and just raid the fridge until it's done.
Nowadays, it's getting so rare to see a healthy body type in the media. These following stars are either eating their way to an early grave or starving themselves into it. Here we look at some of the most extreme cases of the past year.
15 There's Now More Rihanna For Everybody
This year, the summer of "Thick Rihanna" was born and her fans rejoiced as there was now more Rihanna to go around than ever before. The singer showed off her fuller figure on several outings and also in behind-the-scenes shots from her Wild Thoughts video. It's the first time since her breakthrough in 2006 that we have seen her without her washboard stomach and petite legs.
During her launch for a new line with Puma, RiRi explained that her body shape just changes week by week, depending on what style she has in mind. She said, "I actually have had the pleasure of a fluctuating body type, where one day I can literally fit into something that is bodycon, and then the next day - the next week - I need something oversized. It’s like: 'What week are you having?' You having a skinny week? You having a fat week?" Can we not just keep Thick Rihanna forever?
14 Is Kylie Jenner Eating For Two?
Kylie Jenner has been playing the 'Is she or isn't she?' game with her fans lately surrounding her rumored pregnancy. The one giveaway is the new double chin she has been displaying which had not made an appearance until now - does this mean she's eating for two? Pre-pregnancy Kylie would not have been seen outside her mansion gates in anything other than skin-tight clothing but now it's baggy t-shirts and leggings all the way.
One source told Radar Online, "Kylie told her entire family that she is going to avoid the cameras and selfies once she starts gaining weight because she does not want her fans to see her like that. She is legitimately scared of the amount weight she is going to gain and is looking into ways to make sure she gains as little as possible." She certainly won't enjoy seeing these pictures then.
13 Gigi Hadid Post Sounds A Lot Like Physical Dysmorphia
Gigi Hadid angered many of her followers when she posted the above photo complaining about her double chin. She poked fun at herself in the caption that read: "When you love a photo but then you have a double chin." The worryingly thin model then faced a backlash as fans commented, "This b**** doesn't even know what a double chin is if she thinks this is one" another added, "Are you kidding me?!" and one wrote, "Yeah, the struggle is real."
Gigi was once celebrated for her standout curves on the runway but according to insiders, she has decided to go to the dark side. One source told Star magazine, "Gigi’s totally caved to the pressure to be rail thin on catwalks. Other models had always been very rude to her because she was more curvaceous and she felt out of place. Gigi decided a draconian, all-liquid diet was the key to acceptance in the fashion world."
12 Jessica Simpson Isn't Pregnant Again - It Was Just A Big Meal
Jessica Simpson is the poster girl for yo-yo dieting and when she stepped out with husband Eric Johnson she sparked rumors that the pair were expecting another child, which would be their third. The little black dress she wore that night was so figure hugging it showed off a visible bump underneath - but it turned out that was just the big meal she had enjoyed. Oops.
Simpson told InStyle magazine that she doesn't care how big she gets because her husband can't keep his hands off her no matter the size. She said, "My husband and I were looking at old pictures recently, and I asked him, 'Babe, why didn’t you tell me to put the brownie down?' He said, 'You looked great.' He’s always loved every curve of my body. And we’ve always had a healthy (love) life."
11 Leonardo Di Caprio's 'Dad Bod' Has To Go
When you're Leonardo Di Caprio it doesn't matter what size you are - the supermodels will still throw themselves at you. It's not very often you see The King of the World working out, instead, he's often pictured lazing in the sun on the beach or a private yacht, letting his famous "Dad Bod" roll out for the world to see. Only Leo could have hundreds of articles online dedicated to how wonderfully out of shape he is - can this guy do no wrong?
One gossip columnist for New York Post revealed that the Wolf of Wall Street star actually brags to models about his bad shape to get them into his bedroom. They said, "It was a party at this private estate. He was drinking his beer and bragging to these models about how he doesn't work out." We don't suggest any other guy uses this as a flirting technique.
10 Bella Thorne Needs To Grab A Burger
Bella Thorne has never been shy when it comes to posting videos of her workouts online but now fans are concerned that it might be all a bit too much. The former Disney star is disappearing before our very eyes and has started to appear with the dreaded 'balloon head' look as her body shrinks in comparison. One of her fans tweeted, "Just saw a picture of Bella Thorne. Quick question - is she dying? From hunger because I mean wow. I just want to spoon feed her."
Bella's Instagram game is now shots of her barely-there stomach whereas she was a serial food poster - often showing pictures of her post-workout burgers and cheesy pasta dishes, which appear to have disappeared. The last time she shared any foody post with her 16 million followers was more than six months ago.
9 Mariah Carey Tries To Avoid Photos Of Her Side Profile
When Mariah Carey performed on stage for the finale of her Las Vegas residency at Caeser's Palace, she was clearly not focused as it was the end of the run because she allowed herself to be photographed in (gasps!) side profile. The We Belong Together singer took to the stage in her signature sequin leotard but this time it looked like there was a lot more of her to love.
Maybe the singer's weight gain comes from her need to be carried everywhere she goes backstage. An insider told Page Six that the notorious diva has an entourage who keep her off the ground on a bed, they revealed, "It was like they were carrying Cleopatra." In one of her previous concert riders, Mariah also stated that she "doesn’t do stairs." She's likely never broke a sweat in her life.
8 Kendall Jenner Claims It's Physically Impossible For Her To Gain Weight
Kendall Jenner has never been known for her curves but lately, she has appeared far too skinny even for her naturally tiny frame. She received a lot of criticism after appearing on Victoria's Secret runway without much meat on her bones. One fan tweeted, "I don't really like (models) all skinny with no curves. That's not what the average body looks like," another added, "I want a girl with an actual booty to model Victoria's Secret. Too much to ask?"
According to Kendall, it's just physically impossible for her to gain any weight. She told Harper's Bazaar, "I'm constantly criticised for being too skinny. I’m trying to gain weight but my body won’t let it happen. What people don't understand is that calling someone too skinny is the same as calling someone too fat, it's not a nice feeling." As the daughter of a former Olympian, we're going to give her the benefit of the doubt in this one and just enjoy that fast metabolism whilst it lasts.
7 Miley Cyrus Is Shrinking Infront Of Our Eyes
Miley Cyrus has been trying to shake off her Hannah Montana image for years and completely changing her figure is just one part of her reinvention. In 2012, she celebrated her curvy body and tweeted, "I don’t wanna be shaped like a girl; I wanna be shaped like a woman. And trust me, ladies, your men won’t mind either." But then all that changed and following a dramatic split from her fiance, actor Liam Hemsworth, her weight took a dramatic dive.
She previously admitted to Rolling Stone magazine that she weighed only 108 pounds. Although she did defend herself by putting it down to a gluten-free diet as she tweeted, "For everyone calling me anorexic, I have a gluten and lactose allergy. It's not about weight it's about health. Everyone should try no gluten for a week!" Or maybe one too avoid if you lose that much weight?
6 Lady Gaga Was Upstaged By Her Overhang During The Superbowl
Lady Gaga gave the performance of her life during the Superbowl earlier this year, which included a giant leap from the top of the stadium. Despite her standout performance, the only thing that was trending on Twitter was comments about her overhanging stomach which could be seen between her glitter crop top and hot pants.
She later fought back and wrote on Instagram, "I heard my body is a topic of conversation so I wanted to say, I'm proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too. No matter who you are or what you do." She also put her weight gain down to a meat-heavy diet as she told Jimmy Kimmel, "I am really fat right now because I have been eating BBQ." Well, at least she's more honest than most other stars.
5 Kate Moss Sacks Off The Supermodel Diet
Since she's entered her 40s, supermodel Kate Moss certainly isn't interested in walking any more runways and she's decided to live life to her fullest. Gone are the days of her signature 90s frame with a tiny waist and cheekbones that stood out for miles - now she's plumped out and was caught enjoying a holiday in the Meditteranean looking completely relaxed.
Following her divorce from The Kills rocker Jamie Hince, Moss started dating model Nicholas von Bismarck who was 13-years her junior and according to sources, this is what caused her to pile on the extra pounds. One insider revealed, "She has stopped working out, no longer interested in a career and even gained a few extra kilos. That certainly wouldn't be allowed, not at her level as a supermodel." She has always been known as a woman who rarely plays by the riles.
4 Hilary Duff Complains She Struggles To Keep Weight Off
Hilary Duff is another star who decided to fill out when there was no longer a demand for her to be in the spotlight. The former Lizzie Maguire star confessed that she no longer feels under pressure to be the "skinniest person." She revealed to Elle magazine that although she faces questions all the time about her weight - she reassures herself she's in the right place.
The Younger actress explained, "I'm in the same struggle every day. It's a tough question, too, but however it comes across, it comes across. I just tell myself, 'I'm 5'2", I'm really fit, killing it in the gym, and doing crazy things. I love to work out, but I'm just not that concerned with being the skinniest person." You just concentrate on doing you, girl!
3 Kris Jenner Can Now Fill A Dress Like Never Before
Kris Jenner is the woman who blessed her daughter's with the world's most enviable curves but lately, it looks as if the Kardashian matriarch wants to join the running for the biggest booty too. She appeared to be pouring out of a short black dress she wore in L.A. when photographers caught her trying to squeeze into her car.
Fans have previously called Kris out for photoshopping the pictures she posts on Instagram to make herself appear slimmer. In one selfie, she appeared wearing a cropped top and leggings and it was quite obvious there had been some editing as her arms appeared blurred as if they were 'slimmed down' digitally. One fan commented, "Lol y'all can't think any part of this pic is real" and another wrote, "Shame about the editing on the arms...why bother?" Nice try Kris but you're not getting away with it this time.
2 Kelly Clarkson Loves Large Because Skinny Makes Her 'Miserable'
Kelly Clarkson has something to say about the years she spent being slim - it made her so miserable she even thought about taking her own life. She told Attitude magazine, "When I was really skinny I wanted to kill myself. I was miserable, like inside and out, for four years of my life. But no one cared because aesthetically you make sense." She added it was "a very dark time for me."
The Miss Independent singer is now happier being a much thicker woman and she's not planning on losing weight anytime soon. She has turned her back on exercise as it did more damage to her body than good as she explained, "I like wrecked my knees and my feet because all I would do is put in headphones and run. I was at the gym all the time." Maybe exercise just isn't for everyone it seems.
1 Demi Moore's Weight Loss Shows Strain Of Divorce
Sadly, if there is one diet that is always guaranteed to work - it's suffering heartbreak. Demi Moore was happily married to Ashton Kutcher for eight years before he was caught cheating (on their actual wedding anniversary!) with a blonde stewardess. They ended the marriage and Kutcher moved on, remarried and started a family with Mila Kunis. Moore sold up their shared home and moved to another neighborhood so she wasn't haunted by memories of her ex.
Fans then started to fear for Moore as she appeared 'scarily thin' and 'gaunt' at red carpet appearances. A close friend of the actress told Radar Online, "Demi has been going through a rough patch lately. She feels like she is past the age where she can find true love again." We hope she pulls herself together soon as we're sure there are many suitors looking for a Demi Moore to romance.
