I remember when I was younger I was obsessed with my weight for the longest time. I looked at the Celebrities and it comforted me to read an article in a magazine where specific heights and weights of female stars where given. That way I was able to compare myself. I was able to find out what I should look like and what I should weigh at the height I was at.
I was always pretty tall for my age and people sometimes made comments like: "You should be a model." That`s how I got into reading model magazines and bombarding myself with hard facts of the modeling industry. One magazine I had said that a model should never weigh more than 125 pounds. I was over! In order to ever succeed I had to loose 5 pounds. I was 12 at the time and there was not an inch of fat on my body!
Now, I have had some insight into the craziness of make believe when I was a sports model for a brief period in my life. I am almost 6 feet tall and in my best and slimmest condition the lowest my scale ever dropped to was 155 pounds and that fluctuated up and down varying up to 8 pounds a day.
When you go out as a model to castings you have a sed card which indicates your current weight and height and measurements. Mine lied! My agency knew what I weighed and they loved the way I looked, but just for the heck of marketing me better they dropped 20 pounds of my real weight on my sed card: 135 lbs. I have never weighed that in my whole life after the age of 14!
I tried to just for fun see what would happen if I would search "Brad Pitt weight" and sure enough as a first result I got: "Jolie loosing weight to get Pitt`s attention". Really!?
