Debra Messing Talks About Weight In ‘I Weigh’ Podcast
Debra Messing recently came for a candid chat in a podcast called ‘I Weigh’. If you are a 90s kid, then you have seen her transformation over the years through Will & Grace. While starting out Debra got really affected by her weight. Slim actresses intimidated her a lot and this took her to reduce weight from size 8 to size 2. However, she soon realized that getting slim is a very over-hyped concept and she soon got out of this.
Debra Messing Feels She Was Too Skinny In Will & Grace
Debra now thinks that she was too skinny during her time in Will & Grace. She reduced her weight from 8 to 2 and could easily fit into any dress. However, ‘too skinny’ at that time was the beauty standard of Hollywood and Debra also went ahead with this trend. She said, “I was way too skinny. But, you know, going in for those fittings, I fit into everything. And all of a sudden, I literally could fit into anything that was high fashion. So all of a sudden, everything seemed to open up for me, because I was a 2.”
Debra Messing Thought Losing Weight Would Help Everyone
Debra initially got the idea of weight loss when she noticed that every dress of her in the show was sent for fitting to loosen up the dress. She felt sad about it and thought that losing weight would ease the job of many people. So this was one of the reasons for her weight loss besides her desire to look slim and beautiful.
Debra Messing Feels Sad For Putting Herself Through Torture
Debra now feels that she did not have the right judgment on reality. Now she thinks that she put herself through unnecessary torture which was not really necessary at that time. She said, “I look back at those pictures and I was beautiful. I mourn the fact that that was my interpretation of reality and that was the torture that I put myself through.” Looks like Debra have learned that weight loss does not necessarily mean ‘beauty’.
