FIGHT CLUB

I have an affinity for sporty, sweaty editorials. But there is always a problem. Fernanada is a total hottie but she has like ZERO muscles. Her arms are little toothpicks in that second photo. . . Raquel Zimmermann has nice guns, maybe she'd have been a bit more believable in this ed. Although it's not really supposed to be believable is it?

In Emma Stone's recent interview in Elle Magazine she said: "I like to look like a person. It drives me crazy when you see women in movies playing teachers, and they have biceps. It totally takes me out of the movie. I start thinking, Wow, that actress playing this part really looks great!” I love this statement. Bad Teacher anyone? I also love Emma Stone 10x more after reading her interview.

I think she did a great job, her expressions are great and the vibe is nice!
And I don't really see Raquel Zimmermann here, for me she would be totally unbelievable. But you are right, no biceps at all in that photo looks a bit weird.

Seriously!! Same with movies where they have really skinny actresses playing kick ass parts... Anyone who's kicking ass and taking names needs a little more muscle on their frame, otherwise im just sitting there going "wouldn't her arm just snap if she tried to do that?"

I agree with you heylila. . . Raquel wouldn't really have fit well into this editorial.

and this is why i can't buy Angelina Jolie in all those kick-ass roles Sleepy Darling! She's a freakin twig!
