If there is one thing that Kirstie Alley is familiar with, it is struggling with weight issues. The all star contender from Dancing with the Stars knows a thing or two about what a healthy weight should be, so it’s no surprise that she is now standing up and defending Lady Gaga’s weight gain.
Kirstie Alley is no stranger to losing and gaining weight as the star, who is competing on the current season of Dancing With The Stars, struggled with her own weight issues for some time. And while most critics have been bashing Lady Gaga for her recent weight gain, Kirstie is now defending the singer, telling People Magazine: “Most of my career I was pretty lean, so when I gained the weight, obviously people noticed. With Lady Gaga, she gains 25 pounds and it becomes this huge thing.”
It doesn’t surprise Alley, who acknowledged the pressure that Hollywood puts on stars these days, that the critics cannot keep their mouths shut. “It’s Hollywood that is obsessed with weight. I think everyone should try to be healthy. Lean is better than not lean, but I think we send a horrible message to the world, especially to girls,” Kirstie went on to add.
Kristie Alley also feels that Hollywood should give Lady Gaga a break because: “She was so freaking skinny that 25 pounds would make her a what, size 2? There’s an insanity here. I know it’s a pressure on her. I know it is. It’s really hard to play that game.”
