Is America Ferrera Becoming Skinny Betty?

Is America Ferrera falling prey to the pressure to be thin in Hollywood?

The Ugly Betty star has lost about 20 pounds in recent weeks, which is causing a ruckus with the folks that celebrated the star for being a curvy role model for young girls. But the Emmy winner blames her slim-down on a hectic shooting schedule, as the new season has begun, though she does say that since she dropped the pounds she is feeling good.

"I feel like I'm a regular person. I'm a size 10 or 12, which is totally normal," America revealed. "But I do feel that since I wanted to get in better shape, there has been a bit of a backlash."

I love America curvy, I love her slim, whatever. I don't care. She's a good actress who seems grateful for the success she's had. I just wish weight was not such a freakin' issue in this country. It's maddening.
