@ Rob - Yes, all too often, in most people's opinions!

I remember as a girl, the male attention I drew after I put on 10 pounds 'in all the right places'!

I didn't get any peace and it drove me NUTS! I promptly went on a diet and lost them all!

Regarding Julie Wilson's mentioning that she was just under 5ft7 and 9st2, (128lbs), then going on to say, "People seem to prefer me this way - sort of filled out!"


Filled out? A girl of this height and weight is a very slim one, so it strikes me as though Julie might have been a late developer, and grateful for her feminine figure, which came to her 'better late than never'!

As for her height of nearly 5ft7, I'm tempted into thinking that Julie suddenly shot up in height (hence the skinniness), and let's face facts, a height like that in the 1950's was nothing short of tall for a woman... and it ain't too bad going today either!

I offer Julie a certain 5ft6.75!

Maybe she was more a 118-120 pound girl previously and that extra 10 pounds just added a bit more to make her an ideal weight for her height.

Sometimes actresses can be too skinny.
