She used to be overweight in front of the camera, which is why her dramatic weight loss surprised people.
She used to be overweight and was cast in several roles, one of which is her well prominent role in the WB family drama series “Gilmore Girls” as resident dance teacher Patricia “Miss Patty” LaCosta.
Criticisms Liz Torres received for being overweight.
There hasn’t been a day when people haven’t sealed their mouths to stop spitting insults at someone’s body, and Liz isn’t immune to this. Any criticisms regarding her physique have followed her throughout her Hollywood career.
“I’m heavy. This is the reality. I don’t kick myself about it, but I don’t think I look fabulous in my clothes,” Liz told the Los Angeles Times in the 1990s. “I know that in my suits, I look like a box walking down the street.”
“That’s the thing that hurts me most. Thank God there’s a product out there that you can wear that’s passable. It’s corrective dressing, but it’s not who I am, and ultimately that’s very hard.”
“I’m always striving to lose weight, and it’s not a matter of wanting to be a size three again–I brought out my leotards, and a friend thought they were doll clothes. Being heavy isn’t good for you,” she continued. “How long can your heart take the strain? So, I never give up, but it’s hard. Being on the television show helped a lot.”
She went on to discuss the repercussions of her size and how being a “Hispanic” profoundly affected her career in the 2000s, saying, “When you gain weight, nobody looks at you. When I got heavier–and being Hispanic on television is limiting–I played a lot of maids.”
“I would go on the set, and people would not look at me. They also tend not to hear you. You have to make them focus on you. If I really want to be heard, I have that command, but a lot of heavy women don’t. When I see someone heavy working on television, I say, “Oh, God, go, girl. You do it.” You know, it shouldn’t stop your life.”
Liz Torres began her weight loss journey in 2008.
The comic proudly displayed her slim form at the premiere of “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,” where she wore a long black gown and matching duster with gold accents that dropped to her ankles. She additionally sported long, black hair with front grey streaks that layered beyond her shoulders.
In actual fact, she began losing weight in 2008 after completing her role as Connie Solis on the CW’s “Desperate Housewives.” Some speculated that her massive transformation was due to gastric bypass surgery to facilitate her weight loss; however, she has yet to remark on this.
What did Liz Torres do in order to lose weight?
