The country has a shortage of fat actresses

Apparently so:

Theatres and drama schools have been offered “plus-size inclusivity training” to tackle “fatphobia” and help the industry become “more inclusive for bigger bodies”.

  1. The one slight problem with that line is that Margolis meets Worstall’s Law of Acting. “If she’s fugly she can”.

    Margolis can actually act……

  2. Apparently Nuryev always complained that the ballerinas at the state run Vienna Ballet were too fat.

    It is a pity though. A colleague introduced me to his pretty daughter who had had a few roles as the heroine in regional pantos and my first thought was “she could do with losing a few pounds”

    Shame on me. 🙁

  3. Back in the day our Miriam used to make a living by recording XXX-rated audio stories, most usually for those flimsy vinyl discs stuck to the front of top shelf magazines. Don’t ask me how I know.

    Hardly.

    That Nicola Coughlan from Bridgerton is beyond Rubenesque, she’s positively running to fat, which I suspect is the only sense in which she “runs” at all.

  5. Pcar – The play, which was written by queer-identifying Hollywood scriptwriter Joshua Kaplan, tells the story of a fictional intervention staged for Rowling by the stars of the Harry Potter franchise, Watson, Grint and Radcliffe.

    The three actors publicly denounced Rowling in 2020 when she first raised concerns about the spread of gender ideology, the belief that gender is unfixed and changes according to how people self-identify.

    The work was initially titled TERF C***

    JK Rowling should write a play called QUEER JEW.

  6. La Margolies was also the female voices on The Water Margin. Especially the warrior babe Hu San Nian.

    “The Country Has A Shortage Of Fat Actresses”

    Well, there’s that Labour MP, Lady Five-Bellies.
    Does Diane Abbott count?

  8. “Arts council England and National Lottery funds used to promote ‘creative wellbeing’ and ‘body positivity’”

    Now have this in your mind when Robert Jenrick talks about how the “right-wing commonsense majority” is split between the Conservatives and Reform. How the Conservatives are against all this dangerous DIE stuff going on.

    I’m mostly about trying to improve the country, but I am going to enjoy the Conservatives losing. Very, very much.

    I think Sports Illustrated may have taken up the same offer recently.

  10. I sneeze in threes

    And yet regional theatres controlled by woke councils are happy to cancel bookings by Roy “Chubby” Brown.

  11. I sneeze in threes

    Why do they persist in using the term phobia. I’d argue the more likely feeling is one of disgust. If so, and we want to go all Greek in our use of compound words would fatai̱día be not more appropriate?

    She details it extensively in her autobiography. Forgive me, I disagree with her politics, but there is something about her that I warm to. I like Miriam – even though I suspect she would not like me!.
