It's a sickening reality but unfortunately Hollywood is rife with body shamers.
Loads of stars from Demi Lovato to Selena Gomez to Emma Stone have spoken out about the expectation to remain a certain weight for roles.
But while you often hear about famous gals fighting back against the vile body shamers, it's not often that you hear famous dudes speaking out.
In a new interview, Hunger Games hottie Sam Claflin has revealed that he, too, has been the victim of body shaming.
“I remember doing one job when they literally made me pull my shirt up and were grabbing my fat and going ‘you need to lose a bit of weight,’" he told The Sydney Morning Herald.
“This other time they were slapping me. I felt like a piece of meat.”
He went on to say that the cruel style of body shaming he has experienced is similar to what women go through.
“I read in an interview recently and I think it’s absolutely true: men have it just as bad,” he says.
“Well, not just as bad but they get it bad and it’s never talked about.”
The Me Before You star has recently taken to Instagram to speak out about an edited photo that has been doing the rounds where someone has photoshopped his face onto ANOTHER body.
"This picture has been following me around for some years, and well, there are many people I want to thank for it," he wrote.
"Firstly, the person who dedicated a lot of time and hard work training and sculpting their body to within an inch of its life. Seriously, well done!" He continues.
"Secondly, the person who dedicated a lot of time and effort into resizing and reshaping my face so it fits on that body. I can only assume it's no easy feat, so congratulations must go to you too - for making this look even remotely realistic."
"And lastly, to everyone who actually believed (if even for a second) that this could be me. Wow. Bless you. Like, really, really thank you. I'm flattered."
He adds: "But it isn't me. It never was me. Don't get me wrong, I have worked out before, and I really like it when I do, but to THIS extent? Not something I've done yet. Maybe one day, eh?
Right now, I'm enjoying my work, and being a Dad for the first time, and it's getting way too close to Christmas for me to spend any free time I DO have in the gym. But bless you."
While it's absolutely disgusting (to say the least) that Sam and the other Hollywood stars need to deal with this kind of crap, it's so great that he has had the courage to speak out and spread the word that it is totally OK to be who you are and never, never, NEVER give in to how people "think" you should look.
In the words of our lords, One Direction: "You're perfect!"
