It's Crazy That The Media Called These 11 Celebrity Women Fat

Ashley Judd fought back this week against critics who called her "puffy." Who else has the media given flack for fat?

1. Ashley Judd

When a number of news outlets called 43-year-old Judd was "puffy" recently, she responded with a thoughtful essay in The Daily Beast in which she said "the insanity has to stop" and called the constant attacks on her and other famous women "misogynistic."

We have a tendency to have some attention deficit problems when it comes to celebrity news, which means we quickly forget the awful, cutting commentary that so often gets made about famous women's bodies.

But if you take a look at ten other examples of some of the flat-out ridiculous things the media has said about women's weight, I think you'll agree with Judd that the "insanity" does "have to stop."
