Actress MANDY MOORE was humiliated when movie bosses told her she was too fat for her character. The 23-year-old was thrilled to be cast alongside Robin Williams in new comedy Licence To Wed, but her jubilation soon turned to despair when she was ordered to slim down first. Despite her reservations, she complied with their demands but hopes Hollywood will start accepting a wider range of body types soon.

She says, "I felt mortified. I am who I am, and if I accept it everybody else should too. "When I started out in the industry I was 14 and a beanpole, but over the last few years I've grown. For the most part I feel pretty OK with how I look. "I know I'm different from the typical Hollywood ideal of what is beautiful. But quite frankly I don't think that's attainable and I'm happy to represent something different. This is just exactly who I am."
