Kate Winslet and Halle Berry Top Most Desirable Bodies List

While there remains no shortage of Hollywood starlets whose stick-thin frames continue to appear in magazines and on the red carpet, it seems now more than ever ordinary women are tiring of the look — and the possible extreme measures it takes to achieve that near-impossible standard. A recent survey, which polled 2,000 women aged 18 and over, found that stars with curvier, healthier figures were more desirable, reports the UK’s Daily Mail. Topping the desirability chart is Kate Winslet, followed by Halle Berry and Beyonce. Also making the list: Megan Fox and Lily Allen, while svelte Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss tie for last place. Could the era of too-too-skinny starlets be coming to an end? Tell us: Who do you think has the best body in Hollywood? Do you feel pressure to live up to stars’ body standards? –Andrea DeSimone

I’ll agree w/ Halle, but Kate is skinny fat and I think that w/out spanx on, she wouldn’t look so great. I’ll vote for Megan Fox over her any day.

its about time people realize women like victoria beckham and kate moss arent normal size women. congrats to kate and halle for topping the list!

Thank God for women like Halle,Beyonce and Kate. I don’t know why Hollywood thinks you have to like a skeleton to be sexy or attractive. There is nothing sexy about seeing every bone in a woman’s body. No matter how expensive the dress is. Most men I know, feel the same way. NOBODY WANTS A BONE, BUT A DOG!!!!!!!!

This is a problem women have with themselves – we cheer when curvy girls top a list like this, but would we make fun of an actress who showed up on the red carpet with 15 extra pounds on her frame? My guess is that most people would, and that’s messed up.

I would take a young, hot chick any time over these old ladies with kids. Women choose these women because they don’t like competition, and feel these has-beens keep the bar low.

i’m a male, and i agree. Kate and Halle have bodies i find desirable. the victoria beckham, kelly ripa, kate moss body types are FAR from attractive
