I don't agree, but Debbie got me thinking: If a tourist can be intimidated, what must Hollywood be like for a resident non-skinny actress? Liz Torres sums it up matter-of-factly: "You combine the cruel, heartless, rude town with an out-of-work, overweight, over-40 actress and you're not going to get great treatment."
