Sam Trammel

My Big Fat Greek Wedding star, Nia Vardalos, who is also the real life wife of Ian Gomez, tells us her guest stint on Cougar Town was so much fun to shoot the cast could barely keep it together.

A slimmed-down Nia Vardalos says there's a big, fat and sexist double-standard in the entertainment industry.

The actress, who lost 40 pounds to combat a blood sugar problem, writes on Anderson Cooper's 360 blog that she's tired of seeing older, heavier, or less attractive men paired with younger, slender, sexy women on-screen, but rarely seeing the opposite dynamic. Vardalos — who describes her looks as "er, below-average" — says she is often pressed about her celluloid romances with "hottie" John Corbett in My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Alexis Georgoulis in My Life in Ruins, which is currently in theaters.

"It's been years, and I have sat through many a movie like Sideways, where nobody blinks an eye when Paul Giamatti gets together with ...
