Jenna Fischer: 'Celeb weight is public'

Jenna Fischer


Jenna Fischer has confessed that she feels pressure to maintain her weight as an actress.

In an interview with Redbook, the Office star said that gaining or losing even a few pounds in showbusiness can be a huge cause of stress, particularly because it is never a personal matter.

"In a normal job, if you gain or lose a few pounds, it's no big deal. But in my business you have to tell someone so that the next time you go to a fitting, the clothes are the right size," she explained.

"It's really embarrassing to have to say to your manager, 'I'm now a six pant instead of a four'. E-mails go out, and they cc the agents: 'Jenna would like everyone to know that she's now a six pant'."

Fischer went on to say that the involvement of others is one of the reasons behind Hollywood's obsession with weight, adding: "This is why actresses obsess about their weight. It's not a private affair."
