People Outraged Over Allure Posting Zoe Saldana’s 115 Pound Body On Cover

By  |  203 Comments

zoesActress, Zoe Saldana has taken a lot of heat this year for many choices that she has made. The media and fans alike were not too pleased with her being altered to play jazz singer and activist, Nina Simone in a biopic. Just recently the media rode the wave of her statement in Allure about possibly ending up with a woman. But on Wednesday the internet and media outlets were fuming over another issue with Allure.

Under the gorgeous actress’s name appeared the words, “115 pounds of grit and heartache” and now people are starting to become concerned with Saldana’s weight. Is the actress, who says she does pilates, at least three to four times a week, too thin?  

Maureen O’Conner ,of The Cut, weighed in on the controversy saying, “Since numerical representations of weight rarely grace the covers of women’s magazines, we conclude that this number must be special.”

She adds, “Since 115 isn’t a large enough number to suggest defiance, we conclude that 115 is a number meant to represent an attractively tiny weight. Delicate and tiny, making her “grit” all the more charming.”

But with young girls looking up to actresses like Saldana, was it appropriate for the magazine to put her weight on the cover? Many women within the industry have dealt with trying to live up to the Hollywood standard, by fighting hard to stay thin or fighting hard to get their weight down to a size 2, in order to compete. Putting the actress’s weight on the cover may do more harm than good to young women who feel that life means nothing if they can’t fit into the latest two piece swimsuit. Why was it so important to put Saldana’s weight on blast? Have men been subjected to the same scrutiny, when it comes to their image in Hollywood?  Saldana has yet to comment.

    Oh, for crying out loud. Leave this woman alone. I am willing to bet that she is healthy. She does not weigh 280 pounds and walking around with high blood pressure. SHUT UP!! You are never satisfied.

    People will always try and find fault. There is nothing wrong with Zoe’s 115 pounds and she definitely looks great as she is. Let her be.

    I’m tired of fat people being blamed for all the ails of the earth. This FAT BULLYING needs to stop. The media & hollywood are not helping. I am a black woman, yea Im fat, I weight 300 lbs. & guess what my cholesterol is great, I dont have diabites or high blood pressure. I am in great health. I have to love the body & am in right now, not some dream of being 115 or whatever. I am a person so stop with the fat hating ok, seriously.

    First off diva why is your hambone n hogmog chitterling eatin ass happy being 300 lbs? Obesity is becoming an epidemic in the black community,especially with women. It adversely affects your health and your state of mind. Plus its time that we stop letting young women n girls think its ok n cute to go around feeding on fast food like a damn pig all the time. Their bloated asses DO need to be in the gym.

      How insulting! I know many 300 lbs plus people who don’t eat the items you mentioned. A woman in my gym class became large due to an adverese reaction to medication. Your words are mean and hateful, I hope you don’t have a plus size mom, sister or God forbid…child! SAD!

    She looks healthy at her 115 lbs. Why dont we concentrate more on people being responsible for the consequences of their actions whether good or bad. If she chooses to eat right, exercise and have a lifestyle that results in her looks, why make it her fault for someone else who chooses fast food, a sedentary lifestyle and no dersire to achieve their goals.
    Cry me a river already and b e responsible for your own and stop hating.
    If the complainers want to even the score, lets just put everybodys weight on the covers of all magazines lol

    Just saw her in Star Trek, she was very attractive but her acting left a lot to be desired, but then I went for the Special Effects.

    It is good to see an artist with ethnic skin in a movie who is not plus size for a change. However a lot of the plus size ladies look “dam” good their skin. A good example is Jennifer Hudson large or small she is beautiful and talented.

    TWO Hundred Per Day in Only 20 Minutes Only two years go, I used to slave away for 10.25/hour. It was awful. ​Long hours, a grumpy boss, and very little to show for it. Brendan is now showing how he makes 200+/daily. And it’s predictable. Do it once, and you can do it again. Every. Single. Day. Learn how to do it yourself: ==> Yhttps://warriorplus.com/o2/a/dzkw6/0 https://warriorplus.com/o2/a/dzkw6/0 <== Right now, it's on special. Which means that if there's ever a good time to take action on this, it's right NOW! You can do this. Make it happen!! 🙂
