Ferrera On Weightloss Backlash
UGLY BETTY star AMERICA FERRERA has hit back at claims she has given in to pressure to lose weight.
The curvaceous star of the hit comedy has lost 9 kilograms (20 pounds) in recent weeks, prompting criticism from those who hailed her a role model for normal-sized women.
Ferrera blames the weightloss on a hectic shooting schedule - but admits she feels better slimmer.
The 23-year-old says, "I feel like I'm a regular person. I'm a size 10 or 12, which is totally normal. But I do feel that since I wanted to get in better shape, there has been a bit of a backlash."
