Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/BridgetJones'' presented a ValuesDissonance example. To pass as British, Creator/ReneeZellweger had to put on nearly three stones (42 pounds) to carry the part. To British eyes this made her appealingly attractive (and by no means fat). To American eyes she had become disgustingly obese. Renee had to lose this weight before she could get Hollywood jobs again. British fans of the film were appalled and asked if bridget had become dangerously ill or anorexic.

* Creator/MargaretCho jokes about this in her standup special ''Assassin'', talking about how women at awards shows always want to show off their collar bones.
-->(Valley girl accent) "Like oh my god! Look at this bone! Do you see this bone? I'm like, totally emaciated! Look at this bone, I'm almost dead! Like, look at this bone!"

* A lot of people tend to go on about how the Characters/WWEDivas are too skinny but it was quite a shock when Maria Menunous got in the ring and she looked like a skeleton next to Wrestling/AliciaFox, Rosa Mendes, Wrestling/GailKim and Wrestling/KellyKelly. Though the difference is obviously down to the divas being actual athletes and having muscle on them even if it's not too visible.

* On ''The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency,'' Janice very honestly seemed to believe there was no such a thing as "too skinny." When she was told it would be good for business to at least have a few plus-sized models on her roster, she was openly hostile toward them, saying (''in tears'') they were bad role models and wondering how she would be able to explain health, fitness, and nutrition to her young children and not sound like a hypocrite for employing them. This was then undercut by one of her models named Crystal (who Janice seemed to be grooming as her protege,) who later said she had dieted down so far she was no longer having her period, talking as though it were some kind of necessary sacrifice instead of the giant red flag it was.

* Hiko Seijuro in ''Manga/RurouniKenshin''. He spends a lot of time pumping iron [[spoiler: to offset the side-effects of the Hiten-Mitsurugi Ryu]], to the point where he has weights put into his [[BadassLongcoat trenchcoat]]. As a result, he has biceps the size of tree trunks, washboard abs, and huge pecs. Contrast this to his student, Kenshin, who does not spend as much time weight-training (and, while not flabby, is nowhere near as muscular as his teacher.)

* Wrestling/MichelleMcCool faced ''massive'' insults from fans while she was getting pushed. She had a massive Hatedom that called her "Skeletor" because of her thin body type. On the flip side, Bryan Alvarez accused her of having an eating disorder, stating it was the reason she had been hospitalized sometime prior to ''Wrestlemania 23''. Michelle denied the eating disorder story plenty of times, even in a shoot interview on her website (where she had no problem discussing other issues).
* The ''[[Wrestling/WWESmackDown WWE SmackDown!]]'' writers deserve to be slapped for having Michelle [=McCool=]] call Wrestling/MariaKanellis "underfed" when Maria has said she was told by management [[HollywoodPudgy that she was too fat]].

* Starting in 2004, Wrestling/CMPunk teased Wrestling/DaizeeHaze for being too thin in IWA Mid-South which eventually lead her flexing muscles at Punk before tossing him to the mat while "[[PaperThinDisguise disguised]]" as his [[SitcomArchNemesis nemesis]], [[Wrestling/HunterJohnston Delirious]], in 2005. Punk was later on the receiving end himself in WWE, where he was called a "Skinny Fat Ass" by Wrestling/KevinNash.

Women considered "fit" enough to be shown on TV generally fall into the fifth percentile when it comes to shoulder width and rib cage depth. These are hereditary traits that no woman can actually control and that have nothing to do with actual physical fitness. Yet these women are the ones who Hollywood shows as "average", especially if they have unrealistically enormous breasts hanging just above that extremely narrow waist.
