They also have to accept the criticism, brick-bats, the snarky comments on appearance.
its all a part of the deal.
When Kareena can set a negative image for youngsters for being a poster girl for size 0 and earning money through the image (remember the samsung size 0 ads?), she can also be criticised for gaining weight.
No one is asking her to be stick thin- but if you are going to pose with a dress that reveals your thunder thights, it is going to be unaesthetic.
Its a part of her job and her responsibilty towards the image that she has created based on her appearances to either make sure that has the right body frame or wear clothes that dont show her wobbly bits.
lol you don't have to worry about kareena. She learned how to handle criticism. I never seen her backlash at the media. That's one of the things I like about her. instead of complaining about it...she lost the weight...and criticism stopped.
this was never an argument about stars accepting criticism. The argument is about them showing a positive image to girls.
let's say a young girl is reading the posts on her. And she weighs around kareena. Don't you think she will be self conscious too...just based on what people are saying about Kareena. I think so. It's not always about stars you know. Weight is a big issue that American girls have to deal with on single day basis...because of the pressure to look thin/fit.
So the very young girls you talked about- how would they have got affected by size 0 in the first place? Kareena went all out promoting her being the champion of size 0 in India. What about that?
In response to the bolded line- Quite frankly, kareena is the least of my worries. And when did Kareena handle criticism well? isnt she the same woman who started making stories about Bhansali because he refused to cast her.
Kareena has never reacted well to criticism. When she was size 0 she said that was the best she has looked as it suited her, now when she has put on weight she has trurned it all around to say women look better with weight on.
As i said before if she didnt use her body appearance for promoting herself I would quite seriously not borthered about commenting on her weight gain.
But when she can use it to her benefit, there is nothing wrong in commenting on her thunder thighs.
