Kim Kardashian is the latest celebrity to speak openly about body image in the media, giving us yet another posing view on modern ideals.
Kim Kardashian is defending her frame, stating she’s not as big as she looks.
She joins people like Keira Knightley who spoke proudly of her flat chest and Jennifer Love Hewitt who defended her curves. Other scrutinized VIPs include Angelina Jolie whose body was replaced by a stunt double’s because she was too thin, and Megan Fox who was told to ‘get fat’ if she wanted more roles.
Kim Kardashian, 27, wanted to ensure her fans knew, “I look about 15 lbs heavier [on TV]. I’m only 115 lbs, and everyone thinks I’m like 130 or 140. It’s bizarre. I’m a size 2!”
“I look a lot bigger on TV. When I meet people, the first thing they say is, ‘Wow, you’re so much smaller than I thought,’” Kim Kardashian clarified.
