Ginnifer Goodwin is "shocked" at reactions to her tales of her 9-year-old self on Weight Watchers. Because, she explains, she only meant to boost the program, not tell a tale of childhood deprivation.
You'll recall that in the Health profile that made such waves, Goodwin copped to being on Weight Watchers for 23 years. At 9, she says, "I began to identify myself as fat" and her mother decided to help her make a change. "Her reaction was not, 'Oh, I'll help you get skinny...My mother's reaction was, 'Why don't we all go and learn a little more about our health.'" She also says she has a "happy" weight.
