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

Joe is a tool and will probaly never have a decent relationship with that kind of idiotic attitude. Grow up Joe I can only imagine what you look like.

I agree with Kate Winslet and Halle Berry. I also think that Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Biel and Sandra Bullock should be on this list.

Adios, 2009. « Caffeinerd on

Great. Now maybe women will not feel guilty for eating. Women who starve themselves to look like 12 year old boys, are not attractive. Now those Women who are Naturally Thin..and Cuvy Women Work What Your Mama Gave You.

These are great choices. Kate Winslet and Halle Berry are two of the most beautiful woman in film today. I can asure you there are a lot of us men who prefer this look to the pencil thin look of Victoria Beckham. She is so skinny it is scarry. Curves are hot! Stick figures not.I realize some woman are naturally thinand that is O.K. but to make everyone think they have to starve themselves to be beautiful is as dangerous as it is WRONG!!

Jessica Alba has a nice body too. We women tend to compare ourselves to the lollypop shaped women too much. Difference between them and us is they have a dietician, a trainer, and agent, public eyes contantly watching, time and a muliti-million dollar pay cheque to get them moving.

I’m not sure why it has to be either/or. Curvy or skinny, I think most of the women mentioned in the above article are beautiful.
