David Arquette to Blogger: Lay Off Courteney's Weight!


Last week, a New York Times fashion blogger mentioned that some stars were looking a bit curvier than usual on the Golden Globes red carpet, among them Courteney Cox, Kate Hudson and Jennifer Aniston. Readers, who left more than 100 negative comments, were outraged -- and so was Cox's husband of ten years, David Arquette.

"Writing articles about people that put on weight is just wasting space for real news," Arquette ranted to Fox News' Pop Tarts blog. "And who really cares? I love round people, I love skinny people. I love people in general; we’ve got to get past labels and stop being so critical about everything... In general, we just need to be a kinder society.” 

It's super-sweet for Arquette to defend his wife's honor. We wonder, though, if the original blog post is really worth all this fuss; although it was tactless for the writer to point out stars who had "put on a little weight," he praised their "sexier curves," saying they're looking more "womanly" and Marilyn-esque, less like stick-thin "Barbie Dolls." Some might say it's a backhanded compliment, but he probably meant it as a compliment, nonetheless.

We'd love for fuller bodies to become the ideal again. And maybe recent images from the Golden Globes are proof that it's already happening; take this Life & Style cover story, which compares "bony" Angelina Jolie to curve-flaunting Aniston.
