Why you should buy books this year
"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.”
Awhile back, I posted a picture of Capone asking everyone to give pit bulls a chance. I referenced that Capone was one of the few success stories. Sadly, Capone’s new owner could no longer keep him and he is once again looking for a new home.
Capone is available for adoption at Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter.
He’s so darn cute!
