‘Gossip Girl' Star: ‘90210' Girls Should ‘Eat A Double Cheeseburger'

Forget Dylan being revealed as the father of Kelly Taylor’s baby on the new “90210” – the topic that’s got Hollywood buzzing is whether or not the new CW show’s young female stars are too thin.

Much has been made recently over the appearances of several of the “90210” stars, including leading ladies Shenae Grimes and Jessica Stroup.

A new Us Weekly article even went as far to say some of the show’s male stars are showing concern for their co-stars.

“I heard some of the boys on the show are going to sit down with the girls and talk to them,” a source close to the show told Us. “The girls were all skinny when they started, but they’re definitely thinner now.”

Entertainment Weekly also ran a feature on the same issue, questioning if the skinny starlets were setting a bad example.

“Everyone says television adds five or ten pounds, so if you’re watching and someone looks like they haven’t eaten in forever, what must they look like in person?” EW quoted a Hollywood insider who works with young actresses on popular series as saying. “Why doesn’t someone on set or a producer or a studio head say, ‘This is not okay’?”

But apparently, those associated with “90210” aren’t the only ones taking notice of the girls’ physiques.

Gossip Girl” star Penn Badgley is also reportedly weighing in on the topic, agreeing with the notion the girls may be too skinny and offering some dietary advice.

“I hope they eat a double cheeseburger or something,” Badgley said in an interview with AOL’s PopEater blog.

Badgley, who plays nice guy Dan “lonelyboy” Humphrey on “Gossip Girl,” also noted that he was thankful his female co-stars are “healthy” and “aren’t bone-thin.”
