Story of the Day: Ethan Hawke Praises Adele As a Body Role Model

Posted by PZ on October 9th, 2012

Actor Ethan Hawke has praised singer Adele for her fuller figure, stating that she makes a good body role model for his younger daughter. Ethan took his daughter Maya to see Adele in concert, and besides enjoying the music on the night, Ethan was overjoyed to see his daughter idolizing someone who isn’t stick thin. He feels that with so many images of very skinny girls, it’s refreshing to see someone who isn’t constantly trying to lose the weight and is starving themselves for other people’s approval. Ethan says as a father, this made him extremely happy:

“We were both floored (impressed by the show). Wow! It was such a great experience. It was a small club, and my daughter had never seen anything like that. And as the father of a 14 year old, I want to kiss Adele. Everybody else is starving to lose another 25 pounds, and it’s just terrible if all we see in that world is people we don’t recognise from our real world.”
