It’s really a shame the way people are treating Tobey Maguire now that he’s gained a lot of weight. I suppose even multi-millionaire celebrity actors are not immune from being teased about their extra pounds. Of course, Hollywood is like high school on crack, literally, so such shallowness is not surprising. I still love you Tobey! Us fat girls understand.
On the other hand, it is mildly refreshing that it is a male who is under scrutiny for his weight gain and not a woman. Men can generally get away with being fatter and uglier than women since their worth in society is not so much based on their looks but on their earning potential. Which still sucks.
