Thought the East-West rivalry went down with Biggie?
Think again. Soon after it was suggested that
stage an intervention
to keep its female stars from shrinking before our eyes,
had something to say about it. He said he's "never been [a] proponent of the thin L.A. girls," reports
's thin females to the "healthy" ladies of his NYC drama, who "aren't bone-thin," he said. The actor topped off his comments by
echoing TVGuide.com readers
with one piece of advice to the
actresses: "I hope they eat a double cheeseburger or something."
Despite throwing down some regional fighting words, Badgley subscribes to his own philosophy. He's rumored to be dating one of those healthy (and gorgeous)
girls, Blake Lively.
Badgley's comments may catalyze a little coastal rivalry, but they're wise words nonetheless. Yet, is he being too harsh on TV newest starlets? Or should more young stars be speaking out against tiny Hollywood bodies? -
