In this article we talk about people who judge their body a lot, they often ask” I am fat can I act or can I do modeling?”, well that’s a question which is driven by the fact that most of our lead actresses and models are lean and have well built body.
We need to understand that acting or modeling is a skill and that cannot be limited to people who are slim and don’t have an inch of fat on their body. There are many roles that require Fat people to inact in them.
In real life we have people who have various kinds of body shapes. These days many movies, TV series are a reflection of our society hence they require people of all sizes to act in them.
You need to stop judging your body and look at it with much love, your skills are not judged by your body size.
If you will see there have been and are many actors and models, who are fat and still created a mark for themselves in the entertainment industry. Many actors these days mould their body as per the demand of the character. For example Amir Khan had to put on weight for his role in Dangal. Comedian Bharti Singh is Fat but is known for her great sense of humor and the grace with which she carries herself is commendable.
There are world class top Plus size models,w ho have established themselves in the industry and are quite well known. There is huge demand also for plus size models.
Thus, never think that since you are Fat, you cannot act. Every body size and look has a role for itself, you may always reshape your body when you feel like but never attach your acting skill to your body size.
Acting is all about expressions and your ability to mould yourself in the character, many auditions these days look out for people with heavy weight as per the demand of the role.
Concentrate on the fact that you look out for acting schools those help you hone your skill of acting and help you become a better actor. Work on your personality development and carry yourself with grace and dignity without paying much attention to your weight.
Finally make sure that your “being fat” never becomes a blockage in your growth as an actor. Always be grateful to your body as it is and keep on working on it to support you more every day.
Thank you and I wish that you have a great career as an actor.
