Whoa! Is that Fergie prancing around in Nine, or is it just her fatter twin sister?
Yup, it is the Black Eyed Peas‘ leading lady. She purposely packed on about 20 pounds to play a pump-alicious 1920s Italian whore in the just-released movie musical.
Ms. Fergie isn’t alone in the girth-for-gelt department. She follows in the method-acting, plus-size footsteps of folks like George Clooney, Matt Damon and Charlize Theron, who have also let themselves go to play characters with bigger waistlines, bellies and bootys.
**These Hollywood reporters are insane! I mean, I know we give celebs a hard time, but come on…Fergie would have to gain at least 50 pounds before you could say she’s “letting herself go”. For the record, I think E! is the actual cause of eating disorders.
