While thumbing through this morning’s posts about last night’s Emmy Winners, I was surprised to read that Reuters characterized Alec Baldwin as “the portly actor” and Rob Lowe as the “svelte” actor.
Can you imagine if they’d described any female actors by their body type? Is there a double standard here? Was it ‘wrong’ or ‘mean’ to call Alec ‘portly?’ If yes, do I need to defend him? Does he need the help of Our Lady of Weight Loss?
Alec, if you are reading this, are you truly upset??? You said you’d trade your Emmy to look like Rob? Come on!? Really? If you are in need of weight loss coaching, give me a ring!
Here follows the Reuters wrap-up and ‘size’ comparison: Alec Baldwin vs. Rob Lowe
“5:50 P.M. BEST COMEDY ACTOR: ALEC BALDWIN (“30 ROCK”), for the second year. He dedicates his award to the show’s producer, Lorne Michaels — “the greatest boss you could ever have.” The award was presented to the portly actor by the svelte Rob Lowe. “To be honest, I’d trade this to look like him,” he says. Baldwin’s co-star Jane Krakowski struggles to hold back tears.”
For the full skinny, go the Emmy Winners go to Reuters.
