there are roles for all types!. make the most of who you are, of course you also need acting talent!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Skinny is the ideal, especially for ingenues and leading ladies - size 6's or 8's (like America Ferrera) are often considered on the pudgy side!. On the other hand, being somewhere in the average middle is kind of a disadvantage - if a casting director is looking for a "fat best friend" or the like, they're more likely to consider someone who is a size 14+!. There are fewer roles for heavy-set character actresses, but it is possible to carve out a niche there!.

Stage acting tends to be more forgiving of size than Hollywood - you need a certain amount of presence on a physical stage that you don't need for the intimacy of film!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Did you see pudgy, not-astonishingly-beautiful Kathy Bates sitting among the Oscar winners!?Www@QuestionHome@Com
