It’s All About The Waistline

It’s All About The Waistline
Last month saw the release of Disney’s new live-action re-telling of the classic fairy tale Cinderella. Kenneth Branagh’s masterpiece has obviously been a success making over $70 million on its opening weekend. However the film has already sparked controversy among the parents of its target audience due to Lily James’ unbelievably small waist. Before its release the film was accused of using digital trickery to enhance James’ waistline in the movie promotion advertisements. However, Disney reacted by insisting that this was not the case and that her waist in the movie is natural but enhanced by the corset of the dress. Although, Lily James, who plays Cinderella, did admit to undertaking a liquid diet throughout the filming process in order to fit into the iconic blue ball gown. Some parents are going as far as calling for a boycott against the new Disney tale as they believe it promotes an unhealthy body image to the young susceptible generation targeted by the film.
