Raven, ‘I Thought I Looked Fabulous’

Raven Symoné told People she did not find herself unattractive when she was heavy: ‘I thought I looked fabulous before and nobody else did. So, whatever. Actually, now I wear bigger clothes because I don’t like the way people stare..

..at me. I liked it before. Now, you’re just looking at me for the wrong reasons. Before, you were actually looking at me for a real reason.’ The stress of That’s So Raven contributed to her weight gain: ‘That’s what stress does to you. I have been not stressing. I’ve been in my own house, decorating and finding hobbies.’

    What is she talking about? They’re staring at her because she always chooses to wear things that would get attention. I mean come on, you’d stare at anyone wearing this…no matter the weight.

    She’s beautiful inside and out. I thought she looked fabulous too before in her show. It’s sad how weight is such a big issue in the industry.

    I always thought she was beautiful and I never, ever thought she was in any way overweight. In fact, I used think that she was the only average sized actress on Disney. A real role model and not one of these superficial, super skinny types.

    On a side-note: I don’t know if she really designed the clothes on ‘That’s So Raven’ but I always admired them. I’m assuming she did, but I could be wrong.

    okayyy the last time i saw her she was as big as a hippotamus. What happened?!? again im not being judgemental or mean or anythinng. Just curious :P
    she lost weight, that’s what happened. in fact, she explains how she lost the weight right up there, if you would read. and she was not as big as a “hippotamus” (holy shit, please learn to spell. it’s actually not that hard of a word), so don’t be rude. saying “I’m not being mean” and then saying a mean thing is still mean, regardless of how you try to cover it. and you can tell yourself “I can have my own opinion” all you want; you’re still a bully.
    and I happen to agree with Raven: I prefer her bigger too; she was fabulous. however, she still is. she’s wonderful.

    :O She looks beautiful. She always has been !

    Raven is AWESOME – i thought that when she was slim, then when she got bigger and now that she’s slim again. She exudes confidence and, i hope, modesty. She is a total rockstar and a great actress ( i hope we see more of her in in 2011)

    That said, i’m skeptical when ppl say ” i felt beautiful bigger or i preferred it when i was bigger”…If that’s the case, why’d you get so small? She obviously got small consciously, and that’s OK – just own it! Don’t say,” but i don’t like it!”. Just be, “i’m happy and I’m healthy,the way I’ve always been”. but yeah, love you raven. YOU LOOK FAB;-)

    Raven was beautiful before and now. Nice to hear an actress who is accepting of herself even when they were bigger but I guess now Raven is getting back into acting so she wanted to tone down a little.
    Face it most people will not hire a big star for roles.
    Anyway Raven look HOT.
