Weight loss is a never-ending conversation in Hollywood, as many celebrities have felt the pressure to drop the pounds. Some A-listers, however, have taken things to the extreme and regret losing weight.
Sharon has always been relatively petite, but after trying the controversial drug Ozempic to lose weight in 2023, she weighed in at under 100 pounds. Speaking about the drug’s side effects during an August 2023 appearance on Bill Maher’s “Club Random” podcast, Sharon shared, “You have a weight problem and you’ve tried everything, and then somebody says take this injection and you’re going to be skinny. For me, the first few weeks was f–king s–t because you just throw up all the time. You feel so nauseous. After a couple of weeks it goes [away].”
One month later, Sharon revealed that she lost 42 pounds, but she “didn’t actually want to go this thin.” As for her husband, Ozzy is concerned about Sharon’s small frame. “He’s scared that something is going to happen to me,” Sharon said while appearing on Good Morning Britain. “He says, ‘You’ve got skinny then something else is going to happen.’ He’s always thinking about the downside — that it’s too good to be true.”

The Mamma Mia star revealed that she dropped about 10 pounds when she started her acting career, and quickly came to regret it.
“I looked way better [then] … I had huge breasts, and then I came to Hollywood and I was like ‘I got to lose weight. I got to look thin and fit,’ and I lost them a little bit,” Amanda revealed while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I lost like 10 pounds, but that’s a lot on my tiny frame. That’s like three pounds along here. I mean, when I say they were giant, I mean they were like a D,” she said, referring to her pre-fame bra size. “That’s what happens when you try to lose weight, it all comes out of the wrong place.”
These days, the mom of two is more focused on appreciating her “nice curves,” further revealing of her outlook on weight, “I think that we should really appreciate that as opposed to trying to get rid of everything.”

The actress revealed that when she was in her 20s, she tried the so-called “Hot Dog Diet” in order to lose up to 10 pounds a week, saying that she regretted “ever buying into” that kind of “disgusting” weight loss fad.
“I think you really fall into that track in your teens and your 20s because you desire quick results,” Busy said . “I still struggle with moderation and not feeling bad.”
These days, Busy relies on the “natural exercise” of “running around with [her] kids and playing with them” in order to stay fit. “Even at the playground. You can choose to sit on the bench and look on Instagram, which is totally viable for parents — you need a break. But you can also run around on the jungle gym equipment, and you can bring a ball and play soccer with your kids, or do any number of things,” she said.
