Susie Orbach To Stephen Colbert: "There's All Sorts Of Problems About Bodies Here"

Last night, feminist psychoanalyst and author Susie Orbach went on The Colbert Report to promote her new book Bodies and, of course, to be (jokingly) insulted by Colbert.

Orbach attempted to explain her views about plastic surgery, the beauty industry, and our conflicted relationship with the human body. In response to her criticism of the cultural obsession with the "perfect" body, Colbert jokingly told her, "if you drop five pounds, maybe you're talking about this book on The Daily Show."
