London, Sep 25, Hollywood actress Julia Roberts, who has three children with her husband Daniel Moder, says she has never been bothered about staying slim and believes it is “sad and disinteresting” that people pay so much attention to the weight of others.
“I’m too old for that c**p. It’s so silly, so pointless, and it’s motivated by a culture that for some reason finds it entertaining to perpetuate the glorification of our youth. It’s really sad and disinteresting. I mean, I know people really suffer and I just think, ‘How can they perpetuate that’,” contactmusic.com quoted Julia as saying.
The 42-year-old has always been slim, but she doesn’t consider it a “personal triumph”.
“It’s silly to consider it a personal triumph for myself that in almost 24 years in show business – except for being pregnant – I’ve weighed within about a five to 10lb range. That seems unusual, but I’m lucky I haven’t suffered those things.”
“I think it’s important for us to start perpetuating the healthy, happy way of looking at it as opposed to supporting the negative ideal of what a girl should ideally look like,” she said.
