Remember this girl? Actress and singer Nikki Blonsky landed the lead role in the movie "Hairspray" and later starred in the TV series "Huge." She said this about her weight: "You can still be plus-sized but be proud of your body. We’re just different body shapes, and that’s what makes the world go ‘round. Everybody’s different. Once you’re comfortable and happy within yourself, then you can lead a fun, happy life. And that’s what kind of happened with me. I finally became comfortable in my body, and now I’m just happy being me." -Xfinity Music Programmers
