During a visit to the “Today” show, the Weight Watchers spokeswoman explained that she never thought her weight was a big deal until others made her take notice.
“I got a message from Mr. Clive [Davis] like, ‘She can’t be a supermodel like that.’ I was like, ‘What does that mean?’” she told Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford. “By that point I had already won an Oscar. I had already defined myself to a certain extent in the industry being a big girl, being plus size, going off talent alone. I still did not get it or understand, like what is this big deal about image?”
But her decision to lose the weight was personal. “I do not like being boxed in, I do not believe in limits, and I know that nobody knows your potential better than you,” she said.

On the baby’s name, Blue Ivy Carter: “I think the name is gorgeous. It totally fits. I love it and I’m so happy for Beyoncé and Jay. They’re actually one of my favorite couples and both inspirations.”

On her advice to Beyoncé: “I just think she needs to appreciate her baby right now and not worry about [losing the pregnancy weight]. Just enjoy it. … This is her first child. I would take the time and just be with my family and be with my newborn and chill out. That’s what I would do. But you know B, she’s a workaholic and she loves what she does. You have to respect her for that.”
