Actress Jennifer Love Hewitt and "Dancing With the Stars'" Cheryl Burke both defended their curves when they got called out in the tabloids for gaining weight, but both have slimmed down since.
"You know, just having to, have been battling with that since I was a little kid. It does hurt," Burke, a size 4, told "Good Morning America." "But I know that I'm not fat. But when people keep telling me that, you obviously have to, you know, think about it."
