      Emma Thompson Slams Hollywood's Obsession With Size Zero

      By Monojit

      Celebrated Hollywood actress Emma Thompson has severely criticised Hollywood's obsession with size zero figure of actresses and said it is evil to put pressure on actresses to become thin or shed weight.

      The actress said that once she was almost on the verge to leaving a film midway as the film's producer had asked one actress to lose some weight for a particular role.

      "Actresses who are into their 30s simply don't eat," said Emma Thompson in a statement.

      "There was a wonderful actress I was working with on Brideshead Revisited, and the producers said, 'Will you lose some weight?'And I said to them, 'If you speak to her about this again on any level, I will leave this picture. You are never to do that." Said Emma Thompson.

      "It's evil what's going on out there and it's getting worse," the actress added further.

      Emma Thompson stated that it is the fashion industry which is responsible for propagating unreal image of women in front of the world.

      "The French fashion industry said, 'We will get rid of size zero,' and didn't, there are some subjects you have to keep making noises about because it's so tedious, and it's gone on and on." Emma Thompson stated further.
