Is the super skinny back in fashion? Jameela Jamil puts an end to this notion.

The star of The right place36, took to Instagram on Saturday to share news of The New York Post, which proclaimed in its title “Bye-bye, booty: Heroin chic is back”. The article details how stars like Kim Kardashian are losing weight after celebrating their curvier bodies, while slender models like Bella Hadid and Kaia Gerber dominate the runway. Although the term “heroine chic” was originally associated with model Gia Carangi, who used heroin and died of AIDS in 1986, it is now used to describe the extremely thin body type that dominated celebrity culture. in the 90s and early 2000s.

Jamil, however, doesn’t have this particular body trend back – mostly because she doesn’t subscribe to the idea that bodies should be a trend at all. In the video, in which she appeared on the text of the Jobthe article, the She-Hulk star said: “No, we tried this before in the 90s and millions of people developed eating disorders. I had one for 20 years. We’re not starting over, we’re not going back. Our bodies are not trends. Our morphologies are not trends. Kiss my ass.

In the caption, she added, “OUR BODIES ARE NOT TRENDS. SAY IT WITH ME. I’m starting Not Hungry Chic. Happy classy. F***off Classy? Anything but that.

On Sunday, Jamil expanded on the heroine chic controversy on Instagram in a series of videos.

“They want to look hungry,” she said. “They’re not even interested in whether you look like a naturally skinny or athletic person. They want you to look like you have dark circles under your eyes, like you’re dying. Like you hadn’t eaten a meal You haven’t slept because you’re so full of drugs and anxiety that you’re trying to conform to their perverted, submissive stereotype which is a form of what’s glamorous and attractive to them. They want you to stay hungry because if you are hungry you are too tired to defend your right to be treated as a human being who has the right to exist in any body and live the life that you want. It’s all about control.

She also touched on another issue leading to health complications: the use of prescription drugs with side effects on weight loss. In her video, she explained how these drugs, including those used to treat diabetes, have dangerous side effects and can damage organs like the kidneys and thyroid. As someone who’s struggled with an eating disorder, she reminded her followers that the damage from extreme weight loss methods, including taking medication, is ‘never worth it’. .

Jamil went into more detail in the caption of her post, writing, “I’ve had an eating disorder for a very long time. I understand the motivation. But we just can’t do this. We don’t We can’t be so willing to pander to patriarchy. We know too much this time around, it’s not the 90s. We’ve gone too far. We need to fight back. We need to recognize the cause of our insecurities. We need to stop glorifying F***ING FAMINE. We need to stop putting our health and now the HEALTH OF OTHERS at stake for something as insignificant as obedient forced thinness.”

Jamil is no stranger to talking about body acceptance. In 2018, she started the social media movement I Weigh, which encouraged people to talk about the things in their lives that were more important than the number on the scale or what their body looked like. She also slammed stars like the Kardashians for posting weight loss tools like teas and lollipops on Instagram, which she says can encourage people to develop bad eating habits.

In May, Jamil took to social media to celebrate gaining 10 pounds, after Kim Kardashian spoke of taking an extreme approach to weight loss to fit into Marilyn Monroe’s dress for the Met Gala 2022 and Kylie Jenner has shared that she lost 40 pounds after having her second child. She wrote, “I hear Kim and Kylie continue to publicly brag about their rapid weight loss. Well for the balance I brag about gaining 10 lbs. And I love it. Thanks for the delicious food that gave me those delicious tits and thighs.”

She reminded her followers, “If you want to change your body…Don’t do rapid weight loss or gain for aesthetics. It’s BAD for your health. Your organs will thank you if you take your time. patience is a virtue.”
