The Delightful Dr.Torres

Her name is Sara Ramirez. You probably recognise her as Dr.Callie Torres from the TV hit series, Grey's Anatomy. Mexican actress with luscious hair, come-to-bed eyes and a husky voice...she's being held up as a poster child for the American Plus-Size Revolution. Most reviewers try to be discreet about not mentioning her curves in anything other than a complimentary manner. Yet it wasn't too long ago that the USA movie/modelling worlds wouldn't have touched her with a very long stick. My, my, how times have changed...!
To many, she's delightful, very sexy...but Plus-Size? Hell, she's only a 12 (in NZ terms, that's around a 14-16).

And that's my point: America has become sooooooo conditioned to pretzel-logic on-screen and catwalk, that if a woman is not a stick insect, she's labelled as...*gasp*...fat! Or worse still...obese!
But these curves are the general female population's NORM, not some aberration, she's not some FAT girl who SOMEHOW got a lucky break. OMG! Is Hollywood finally getting real?
