Kate Winslet and Halle Berry Top Most Desirable Bodies List

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

Joe is a dumb-ss for calling these women has-beens. Methinks Joe likes donkeys!

My favorite bodies in Hollywood are Beyonce, Kate Winslet, Kim and Khloe Kardashian,Salma Hayek Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jlo, and other curvy ladies.
My all time favorite Hollywood figure is Sophia Loren!!!!!! Google her or check out her movies!

No, I don’t feel pressure to be thin. But I do wish that I had healthy curvy figures like the lady above. I am naturally curvy but I need to lose 37 lbs to have healthy curves instead of my overweight curves. Don’t get me wrong a little overweight isn’t wrong, just not 40 lbs overweight! But this is just my personal opinion:)

sorry but although halle is no where near anorexic, she still looks like she can fit into a size 2 quite easily there, whereas kate says she’s usually a comfortable size 6. i think we should take a cue from some fashion shows and make a minimum standard for hollywood actresses, “you have to be no less than a size 4 to be in films!”

perhaps we can start to stop the low self-esteem, eating disorders, and untimely anorexia deaths this year.

Im a woman- who appreciates other womens figures. (no competition.) being 5’3 and 145 Im comfortable in my skin. I love J.Lo and Kim Kardashian for their healthy, sexy and curvy bodies. I hope society is truly moving on to appreciate that so my little girl wont feel like she has to look like Kate moss to be pretty.

I think Kate Moss et al have beautiful bodies! That while I do not live under some sort of mystified thinking I should live like or have a similar body. Curves are good, curves-not are good too. Its about the beauty that comes from within AND being a healthy fit person with no unnecessary body fat. That’s right – I am tired of this “we all need to have healthy curves” — healthy curves are not a couple of love-handles or an excuse to have another diet coke and not exercise. Let’s get real, FAR MORE American women suffer from being OVER_WEIGHT than being underweight because of ‘skinny body image pushed by the media’…

UM, KLM, you are way too critical. Women like Kate Winslet because she looks like a beautiful, everyday woman. Her look is attainable. You are probably 19 or 20 years old, right? LMAO

with that attitude you will be spending it alone for the New Year! How dare you say that! I am 42 and have 4 grown boys of my own. And my husband thinks I am better than any 20 year old. I still get carded. I still get beeped at. I still turn YOUNG mens heads. So yes I prefer a REAL women to admire NOT a bag of bones with FAKE boobs, lips, hips, and mind!

My comment was for JOE!

I believe that all the a-list celebrities are very concerned on how they look to the public eye. I believe that they are all beautiful, but being too skinny looks kind of distguisting, NOT PRETTY!! I do believe that the right people belong on that list, but i don’t believe that victoria beckham should belong there, isn’t she like a size 0 or something, that is just wrong!!
