Anne slams pressure to be thin

Anne Hathaway has spoken out against movie industry execs for perpetuating the myth that actresses should be thin, insisting no one should be forced into a size zero. The Devil Wears Prada star says she has turned down roles because of pressure from directors to lose weight. "It's completely understandable as a teenager to fret about your body," says Hathaway. "It's scary because you don't know how it's going to wind up. But I'm not a teenager any more, my body's chosen its shape... I'd rather be strong than skinny for most roles. I'm not a size zero, and I've had directors say to me, 'You're the best actress for the role, but you've put on weight recently.' If people can't understand you've put on five pounds, I don't want to deal with them."
