"I was young. It was just the kind of shit that actresses have to go through. Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight. They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. It was just that. [Someone brought it up recently] They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me. That somehow, after I won an Oscar, I’m above it all. ‘You really still care about that?’ Yeah. I was a little girl. I was hurt. It doesn’t matter what accolades you get. I know it’ll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet’, I’m like, ‘You can go fuck yourself.”
30 days of disney; day 20 — an underrated movie: the rescuers down under
this movie is CRIMINALLY overlooked. it’s AMAZING. it came out right between the little mermaid and beauty and the beast, so right at the beginning of the disney renaissance, and it shows. the animation is glorious (glen keane in one of his oft-forgotten roles as head animator for marahute), the story is gripping and exciting, the characters are wonderful and the music is absolutely breathtaking. if you haven’t seen it in a while, you MUST. it’s one of my top favorite animated movies of all time.
