Actress Marissa Jaret Winokur has drop a whopping 60 punds after a vigorous diet and exercise regime. However the actress has conceded that even after her weight loss she’ll still be considered a ‘chubby actress’ in Hollywood.
The Tony-winning actress, known best for her roles on Broadway, went from a size 14 to size 2, but has admitted that her decision to lose weight was not down to her dissatisfaction with the way she looked, but instead it was to do with getting work and getting healthy.
The actress, who appeared on season six of Dancing With The Stars, told The Insider; “When I was a size 14, I was super happy. I felt confident in my body. The doctor [was] saying I'm not healthy...so I [needed] to change my way of life.”
Winokur also revealed that she has yet to throw away her plus-sized wardrobe just yet, out of fear that she won’t be able to keep the weight off. The money conscious star admitted "I know it's horrible, but here's the thing ... My fear is, what do you do? I have jeans that fit me great and what if I gain it back? I need those jeans."
The actress also admitted that losing the weight has never been a dream for her or anything, rather it was just an adjustment to her life that she thought she’d best do now rather than when it’s too late. That said, the actress is very much content with her new lifestyle, and is planning on trying her hardest to keep the weight off.
