Five Stars We Liked Better When They Were Fat

Renée Zellweger

Remember when Renee used to be a little pudgy? She'd wear giant knickers, drink and smoke endlessly, and slide down fire poles before landing ass-first into a video camera. Oh! And remember when she used to talk with a British accent and make out with Colin Firth in the snow with no pants on? That's when Renée was truly at her best!

Oh, hold up. You say that was just her role in the movie Bridget Jones's Diary and not really what Renée Zellwegger is actually like? Oh, well. We suppose she has never been pleasant then. Moving on.

Britney Spears

This one might be a little controversial. Everybody loves them a pretty, perfect-bodied Brit-Brit from the '90s. But don't you think she was a bit like a circus monkey in those days? Dancing with snakes and shaking her thong-over-low-rise-jeans rump for peanuts? Her true personality always seemed to be plastered over by Team Britney for the sake of record and concert sales.

Then, enter KFed. Suddenly Britney's inner hillbilly burst loose -- and, man, was it fun. Sure, maybe Britney went a little too far in her bigger, binging days, having to be Baker Acted and all. But now she just seems like a subdued, pilled-up, zombie robot.
