Cara Delevingne has been casted as Margo Roth Spiegelman.
I’m sorry, I admit that I was a little surprised that she was playing Margo Roth Spiegelman, but honestly. This is yet another act of judging someone’s talent upon their weight. She can lose weight or gain weight, it effects no one but Cara and is her decision. And besides, from what I understand, she is a damn good actor! Screw you if judge people on their weight!!
What if I told you that I didn’t make this post to judge Cara, rather the casting department for taking a curvy character that breaks out of the ideal hollywood body and having her be portrayed by a model with the ideal hollywood body
But it is still, no matter how you put it, saying that you don’t want her because she is thin.
But why are you focusing on the fact that I don’t want a skinny woman playing a not-so-skinny character? Why aren’t you focusing on the fact that this was an opportunity to make a movie about a boy being madly in love with a curvy girl, which would make real-life curvy girls feel pretty good to be reminded that they too are beautiful, and instead they chose the same body type that is often portrayed as the only beautiful body type? I have no problem with Cara as a person. I don’t know anything about her. Maybe she’s a great actress. But that doesn’t change the fact that this casting is problematic. There’s nothing wrong with her being a skinny person. However, there is something wrong with a model playing a character that isn’t supposed to look like a model.
