    Not too surprising... some men DO say they don't like thin women. And heck, Leo is really white. :smile:

    Notice the quote didn't come from one of the guys! They were too busy drooling probably.

    A hundred and fifty or so years of Cultural Anthropology but the world still sees Brazil as a big green hot jungle. Does this journalist even know what's traditional over here? Oh good Lord....

    Actually those women make a very good point. In some tribes, a thin women to them is what a fat woman is to us over here in N. America, sickly and disgusting. In many African tribes, fat women are extremely desireable. It's an indication of their socio-economic status, because the fatter you are, the more money you have, the more you eat. In fact, some men will only marry fat women or women with huge hips because it means they can bear more children.

    If I were those jungle women, I'd probably think Gisele was gross looking too... ofcourse I think Gisele is perfect, but you know what I mean.

    quite true. I think I saw a thing on Oprah about this once. In some places in Africa, before they get married, the women go through this two week thing where they are kept away in a hut and fed and fed and fed so that they gain weight.

    Hush-hush and traditional, but with paparazzi? :blink: I guess they think they can really rough it!

    model_mom - She sounds like a real treat, doesn't she? :rolleyes:

    I remember reading an article somewhere that Brazillian women slate the models from their home land, saying they misrepresent what real woman are like there, and that they could never get a boyfriend being so thin. :rofl:

    Apparently, they don't get the poor boyfriends, only the rich ones. :rolleyes: Whatever they say, every woman in Brazil wanted, someday, to be as stick thin as Gisele. Brazilian men, on the other hand, prefer girls who are, err, "chubbier". No wonder she's not a sex symbol here. But that certainly doesn't make her less gorgeous.
