  1. Wow Says:

    Meryl didn’t have the option of portion control because of the clear instructions she received from her director – “eat and look like you’re absolutely in love with the food.” Meryl being the actress that would never do things half way did exactly as told. Don’t make comments about people’s weight, for one it’s not kind, and two, evidently you were without background information that would allow for you to make an educated, well-rounded statement.
