Et: Tell us what The Not So Subtle Art of Being a Fat Girl: Loving the Skin You're In is about?
Tess Holliday: My book is all about how to love yourself. There is a ton in there about things that I have gonethrough, but I feel like a lot of people will really relate to it and understand that they should never be ashamed to talk about things
Like Holliday herself, the book’s title, The Not So Subtle Art of Being a Fat Girl, gets straight to the point, which the model and body activist says was intentional.
“Well, look, I’m fat. There’s no shocker there. I just thought why not put it in the title. It’s going to get people’s attention and hopefully steer it in a more positive conversation,” Holliday, 32, told People Now.
The supermodel says that she wants to destigmatize the word “fat.”
“It’s how I describe myself. It
“There were days I didn’t leave my room because it stirred up so many different emotions I wasn’t expecting, and resurfaced some things I thought I had dealt with,” the model, 32, tells People.
In the book, The Not So Subtle Art of Being a Fat Girl, out on Sept. 26, Holliday shares the story of her “tumultuous” childhood in Mississippi, from her complicated relationship with her father, to her mother getting shot to becoming pregnant with her first child at 18 after a one-night stand.
The model wants everyone to know that heavier people are sexually active, and she shared that sentiment with a stripped-down photo on Instagram.
Shot some #polaroids with @anastasiagphoto in NYC last week. When I saw them, & how hot (& obviously unretouched) they are, I was reminded of a ‘Tess Holliday’s Advice for Life’ that are all throughout my book. It goes: ‘Fat people have sex. A lot of it. And it’s really f—— good.’ That’s all,” Holliday posted.
The body positive activist is currently prepping for her

Saturday, July 1 Changing Faces
What does a face tell us even when it’s disguised or disfigured? And what does it conceal? Guest curator Imogen Sara Smith, a critic and author of the book In Lonely Places: Film Noir Beyond the City, assembles a series of films that revolve around enigmatic faces transformed by masks, scars, and surgery, including Georges Franju’s Eyes Without a Face (1960) and Hiroshi Teshigahara’s The Face of Another (1966).

Et spoke to the 31-year-old plus-size model on Thursday, and she talked about tagging the movie's star, actress Chloe Grace Moretz, in a tweet slamming an advertisement for the film. A billboard for the movie in Cannes, France, shows two women -- one tall and thin, the other shorter and heavier -- and the words, "What if Snow White was no longer beautiful and the 7 dwarfs not so short?" Moretz addressed the issue on Wednesday and tweeted that she too was "angry and appalled" by the film's marketing.

At age 88, the indomitable and highly influential Varda shows zero sign of slowing down when it comes to churning out art told through continually experimental means (she’s also remained committed to supporting her work in person, recently popping up at both the French Institute Alliance Française for a career-spanning chat and this year’s Rendezvous With French Cinema series with a brand new exhibit; we should all be so lucky to be as vital and involved when we’re half Varda’s age). Varda’s contributions to cinema and feminism have been

‘I don’t want to age. I think that’s the scariest thing in the entire world,” says Ginger Leigh Ryan, one of the girls featured in Jenny Gage’s documentary All This Panic. Set in the Brooklyn neighbourhood of Clinton Hill and directed by the former Us fashion photographer, with cinematography by her husband Tom Betterton, the film follows seven teenagers – best friends Lena and Ginger, their school friends Sage, Olivia and Ivy, Ginger’s younger sister Dusty, and Dusty’s best friend Delia – over a three-year period.
i-d magazine said the film “might be the most honest documentary about teenage girlhood ever”. That’s a bold claim, but there’s something to be said for the way Gage’s film

The star of My Big Fat Fabulous Life was rushed to the hospital after collapsing during a dance-a-thon, and she's now working on making her health her focus.
"My favorite thing about My Big Fat Fabulous Life is being able to share my life with viewers, and that includes the good, the bad, and everything in between," Thore, 32, says in an exclusive statement to People.
"It also includes the Exhausting, which is how I felt the night of the dance-a-thon when I collapsed."

Director and screenwriter Alice Winocour crafts a sweaty-palmed, Ptsd inclined thriller with sophomore effort, Disorder. Somewhat inclined as a French version of The Bodyguard (1992), itself a muddled American pop culture homage to Kurosawa’s 1961 samurai classic Yojimbo, this odd genre mixture arrives with troubling political undertones hovering in the paranoid perimeter of a debatably deranged security guard’s watch of a wealthy Lebanese businessman’s family. Decidedly simplistic in form, it’s an elegantly crafted exercise enhanced by its particularly complex audio design, initially positioning its sullen protagonist as merely a madman approaching a breaking point. But more is revealed in the frequent display of observational skills, including a variety of non-verbal cues shared between its main characters through increasingly murky intrigue.
Recently returned from serving in Afghanistan, Vincent (Mathias Schoenaerts) suffers from night terrors and bouts of debilitating paranoia.
