Top 10 Celebrities With Body Weight Problems

Certain celebrities have looked the same for like the past 10 years.

With a SWAT team of dietitians, stylists, colorists, personal trainers, makeup artists, and other professionals, these people remain effortlessly flawless throughout the years. Isn’t that great for them? But how uninteresting. Everyone loves a chink in the ole’ armour. Enter these 12 unpredictable waistlines.

Some call it yo-yoing. Some call it fluctuating. Some call it plain old lack of self-discipline. Whatever you choose to call it, the fact of the matter is that some celebrities can’t seem to stick to one silhouette. Sometimes, they climb out of their limos looking slim ‘n’ sexy and sometimes they hoist themselves out looking inflated like a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon. With these 12 celebrities, your guess is as good as any (and just imagine their poor dietitians, stress-balding and binge-purging to cope with the pressure of having to keep these people trim.)

Trying to work with these celebrities must be like playing a really difficult video that erases half your progress every time you turn it off. Although presumably you’d be getting paid a lot of money to keep your frustration on mute, it’d still be enough to make you want to jump out the window.

10. Oprah Winfrey


In 2006, Oprah weighed 160 pounds. In 2008, she had gone up to 200 pounds, which she said was due to a thyroid condition. She continued to steadily gain weight until shedding 25 pounds in 10 weeks in 2012. Talk about yo-yoing: the Queen of Daytime Talk’s weight is always unpredictable.

Granted, she isn’t in the business of being thin – she was never hired to be a sex symbol and one’s weight has no bearing on his or her business acumen – but perhaps she should consider making “Consistency” one of her “Favorite Things,” and the tug of war with the scale could stop.
