Male Body Image

For years we’ve heard of the pressure on women to look a certain way…  They are under constant scrutiny and are forever photoshopped but lately it seems that Hollywood’s men are getting nearly as much attention.  Last week we saw news stories on the first plus-sized model and we saw Wentworth Miller stand up to body shamers.  While it’s very familiar to women to have stories about their weight circulating, it’s less common for such stories to be connected to men.  Are men starting to feel pressure from the so called body shamers?  Paddy McKenna looks at the evidence.
