Kate Winslet and Halle Berry Top Most Desirable Bodies List

J. Graylock/JPI; INF

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

Jennifer Aniston blows them all away.

Actually, the best body Ive seen in a long time is the girl that just won Survivor. Any of you see her in her bikini? Wow is all I can say.

Don’t forget to put Scarlett Johansson on the curvy list! She has the face and body of a Botticelli painting.

I dont’ agree with you KLM. I think that she looks good no matter what she has on. Spandex or not. She looks like a health woman. She is not fat, but she’s not pin thin. She looks like a girl that you can take out to lunch and won’t order a salad with a side of fat free dressing and a lemon water. She looks like a laid back burger and fries kind of person. Thats what I like about these two is that they look like they really care about their bodies but they don’t go to the extreme, they look like they know how to enjoy life without feeling like they have to be a size 00 to do it. They take care of themselves in a very healthy manner.

My vote goes to Selma Hayek…. The best looking women is the one with the confidence to carry herself well. Whether married or single.

Kelly Ripa and Nicole Ritchie both looked better when they had more weight on,by far.Kate Winslet looked her best in Titanic and Quills and also Iris.Margaret Cho a gay women with a weight problem blamed the skinny phenomenon on gay men who were dictating the fashions.It’s high time women of America rebelled and started to look normal again.Let’s not get carried away,there are women who are naturally thin like Audrey Hepburn and Callista Flockhart.

Christina Hendricks has one of the most curvaceous and stunning bodies on T.V. (Mad Men) today….hands down!

But they’re both still just sizes 2/4, which is still thin. They’re just not anorexic thin; they’re thin with big boobs. What planet are you people living on, where you think sizes 2/4 are “more like real women’s bodies”, or even “chubby”?!
