fyeahrosariodawson: I remember when I was doing Rent and I was too thin, and I was doing that on purpose because I’m dying, I’m a HIV+ drug addict.  I remember having to eat raw food and doing all this work to make sure I could stay thin…And I remember everyone asking when I was doing press for the movie, ‘What did you do to get so thin? You looked great’ and I’m like, ‘I look emaciated’…It’s a form of violence, in the way that we look at women and how we expect them to look and be– for what sake? Not health, not survival, not enjoyment of life, but just so you can look pretty.  I’m constantly telling girls all the time everything is airbrushed, everything is retouched to the point it’s never even asked.  None of us look like that. - Rosario Dawson
