Zoe Saldana’s Weight Featured On Cover Of Allure

May 15, 2013 03:00 PM by Stephanie Gustafson

The media often speculates about the weight of today’s hottest celebrities, but rarely do the actual numbers find themselves featured front and center. This is exactly what happened in the latest issue of Allure, where the exact weight of former Project Runway guest judge Zoe Saldana was displayed right on the front cover.

Allure is occasionally the center of controversy, with past reporting on silicone breast implants and other women’s health issues having taken center stage in past issues of the magazine. But this time, the publication is eliciting the wrath of millions of readers for an issue others may view as petty in nature — the posting of Zoe Saldana’s weight.

Check the front cover of the Allure on your local news stand and you’ll observe a stunning picture of actress and fashionista Zoe Saldana. Shortly thereafter, you might also notice the caption that goes along with that photo: “Zoe Saldana: 115 Pounds of Grit And Heartache.” The emphasis on Zoe’s slim figure is continued inside the magazine, with a photo spread featuring the actress in the nude.

While some Allure readers are impressed by Zoe’s gorgeous front cover looks, many others are unhappy with the focus the magazine appears to be putting on the number on the scale. After all, Zoe doesn’t strike readers as the type of celeb who constantly obsesses over her weight or spends her time on dangerous crash diets. In a 2011 Women’s Health interview, she explained that her typical fitness regimen included three Pilates workouts each week along with a diet filled with delicious Caribbean food.

Are you annoyed that Allure decided to include Zoe Saldana’s weight on its front cover? Or is this issue being blown out of proportion? Sound off in the comments section below!

    We might look at 115 pounds and think it is too skinny, but in Hollywood the pressure is to fall around 100 pounds or less so she might actually help to relieve some of that crazy, unhealthy hype among her coworkers.

    Who gives a hoot. If Zoe was white and a model it would be ok.
