Robbie Williams divides followers
In the comments section, one person raged: “Way too skinny.” Another added: “Too thin Rob, not you.” A third worried fan wrote: “He looks very thin!”
Well I think he looks amazing and fit.
But Robbie’s other fans were quick to defend the music star, with one writing: “I am disgusted at all the comments saying he’s too thin. Why does that affect you? So long as he’s healthy it doesn’t matter what he looks like!!!”
A second supportive fan agreed: “Well I think he looks amazing and fit.” Someone else proclaimed: “How is it okay to tell someone they are too skinny? Robbie looks like he’s been training and working hard to get a really fit body. Healthy body healthy mind.”
Robbie Williams on his weight loss
Back in September, Robbie candidly admitted that he is finally happy with the way he looks following his weight loss. Speaking in an interview with The Sun, Robbie said: “I have lost weight. But it is a constant fight. Inside me, there’s a giant person.
“Thank God for vanity, and thank God for my job. Because if I didn’t do what I do for a living I dread to think what I would look like and what I would become.”
Robbie has been sober for 20 years now. He revealed that he has finally learned to accept himself after struggling in the past. He added: “I hated myself and I thought I couldn’t sing and looked like [bleep]. If anyone thought I was wandering around with an inflated sense of self-importance it is actually the opposite.”
