Poor Tobey

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.

Story after the jump.

Page Six – New York Post

May 5, 2005


JESSICA Alba and her pals were hanging out at the Coldplay concert at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas the other night when Toby Maguire, who looks a lot bigger than he did in “Spider-Man” or “Seabiscuit,” approached. The two exchanged pleasantries. But after the lardy leading man left, Alba said to one girlfriend, “He’s [bleep]ing huge!” — sending both of them into hysterical laughter.
