Thats the skinny from 86-year-old health expert Martin Schiff, who believes Hollywood is partially to blame for the worlds obesity epidemic.
He says films often depict examples of people overeating and gorging themselves on booze and food, and hes calling for Hollywood bigwigs to tag these foodie flicks with an O rating, which would stand for Obesity.
The O rating would be placed on any film that portrays idle characters just sitting around binging, demonstrating no control over themselves whatsoever.
It would warn viewers that mimicking the eating scenes could lead to obesity and other health problems.
Although Schiffs crusade seems like its about food, he assures its not.
He says its about people having positive influences on one another and learning to control every aspect of their lives, from their weight to how they think.
He says everyone has the power to control their conscious, including the fat between their ears.
