In the last year, I got to star in a movie, wrote and directed my next one, and adopted a three year old from American Foster Care.But guess what I’m asked…how did I lose the weight?I am embarrassed to be in the position of answering questions about my body again. Socially, the issue of men’s weight is simply not a big deal. If now, I have a sudden validity because I look different on the red carpet, check out my Before pics on my Twitter. [From ac360.com] Here are the before and after makeover pics that Vardalos posted on her twitter.

finds it tiresome that people constantly ask her about her recent 40 pound weight loss when she has so many other things going on in her life, like the adoption of a three year-old girl.

Vardalos is also annoyed that when she did press for five years ago journalists frequently asked her if it was realistic that her character, who went from frumpy to cute over the course of the film, would be able to bag an attractive guy like John Corbett.

There’s a double standard in movies, claims Vardalos, because we often see unattractive guys with super hot women and no one questions it.

What’s more is that heavy famous men aren’t criticized for their weight like women are. She’s fed up and blunt but she’s not rude about it and is just telling it like it is. Just 40 pounds of fat now gone from my body, but wow, it’s pretty much all I get asked about.

Because they don’t want to hear the truth: I had a blood sugar problem so my Doctor ordered me to lose weight, it was really hard but I did it through diet, exercise and it took a year. Take that bag of Doritos and throw it as far as you can. In other words: they labeled me with words like, overweight, unattractive, unappealing.

This is when the boredom sets in on the querying person.

I might as well just shove an Ambien up their nostril.

It’s been years, and I have sat through many a movie like Sideways, where nobody blinks an eye when Paul Giamatti gets together with gorgeous Virginia Madsen. Yawn, we all know it, perpetuate it – we make it worse every time we buy a magazine showing “Stars with Cellulite.” And women, we do buy those magazines. No, not just at the airport – you have a subscription, admit it. Alec Baldwin just orders his suits a size bigger and we continue to swoon. What do I have to do to hang out with Nia Vardalos?

And, then ‘Knocked Up’….well, the visual of Seth Rogan on top of Katherine Heigl made me put the popcorn down and reach for my purse. And many a reviewer, who probably look like sweet Seth (yes even the women) gave it a thumbs up. [From ac360.com via US Weekly] Vardalos goes on to write that when she tells people how she lost weight – she worked hard for a year and dieted and exercised, they don’t want to hear it because they’re looking for a magic secret, not the truth. She seems awesome and I love her perspective on body image and weight.
