The Impact Lab photoshopped “a few extra pounds” onto some popular celebrities and asked, what would celebrities look like if they were fat? Celebrities include Elizabeth Hurley, Jennifer Lopez, and Shakira:
“Food can be an evil thing in the wrong hands. Here are a series of obesity-enhanced photos to show you what your favorite celebrity would look like with a few extra pounds. As we are all striving for that perfect weight, just take a few moments to have these images permanently seared in your brain, and food will begin to lose much of its appeal.”
Wow, I kind of don’t know where to begin. First of all, “a few extra pounds” equals to a couple of hundred pounds added to each celebrity. They all look like they’re wearing fat suits, of course—they don’t look like normal curvaceous women. It seems like the point is to make them look as grotesque as possible (at least in Gwyneth Paltrow’s case). Secondly, talk about value judgments—if these celebrities really were obese, it would be “evil”? And third… god, I don’t even know. Go see for yourself.
