While there remains no shortage of Hollywood starlets whose stick-thin frames continue to appear in magazines and on the red carpet, it seems now more than ever ordinary women are tiring of the look — and the possible extreme measures it takes to achieve that near-impossible standard. A recent survey, which polled 2,000 women aged 18 and over, found that stars with curvier, healthier figures were more desirable, reports the UK’s Daily Mail. Topping the desirability chart is Kate Winslet, followed by Halle Berry and Beyonce. Also making the list: Megan Fox and Lily Allen, while svelte Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss tie for last place. Could the era of too-too-skinny starlets be coming to an end? Tell us: Who do you think has the best body in Hollywood? Do you feel pressure to live up to stars’ body standards? –Andrea DeSimone

I agree that Kate Winlet and Halle Berry are gorgeous. I would also add to the list Sandra Bullock, Jessica Biel and Jennifer Aniston look great and could go on this list.

Kate Winslet is old and has a saggy body. Megan Fox should’ve won – she has beautiful curves.

Wow. Sorry. My post was almost readable. I meant: I agree that Kate Winslet and Halle Berry are gorgeous and would also add Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Biel to the list of women.

Kate and Halle have great curvy figures, but where on the list is Scarlett Johansson??? She has a nice, curvy figure and still looks healthy.

Megan Fox looks like a drugged up prostitute. She has absolutely no talent. It’s funny that she is on a list with women who are actually attractive.

Wow, Kate looks fabulous! Halle is a given. I think Eva Mendes should be on the list. Her curves epitomize sexy. I am so glad the bony, druggie look is out.

What is “skinny fat?” Is that a notion that if you are over a size 2 in Hollywood you can’t possibly look presentable without Spanx?!

It is these delusions that contribute to the body issues that most women in america face.

Applaud women like Kate Winslet who are REAL women who allow themselves a cheeseburger or to skip a workout out ever so often. Kate Winselt is a role model and unlike her contemporaries she can formulate and articulate a complete thought. Which is more than I can say for Megan Fox.

What about Eva Mendes!!!! Fabulous body!

These are two amazing women, but let’s be honest, when most of us gain a few pounds, it doesn’t go straight to our bust and hips and still leave us with 23-inch waists. Being “curvy” is a genetic gift, and is even less realistic for most women than being thin.

I agree with the vote for Jennifer Aniston! I’m so glad that Angelina didn’t make it…too skinny!!
