Howard said yet another celebrity had misunderstood his comments about 'Precious' star Gabourey Sidibe's future in Hollywood: "You know who's a total moron? Kirstie Alley."
Howard said Kirstie, of all people, should understand: "She's actually said, when she got fat, Hollywood wouldn't hire her...I'm agreeing with you! Hollywood has a bias against fat women."
Howard laughed that Kirstie had also come to the 'defense' of Jessica Simpson: "Anyone who joins the fat club, Kirstie admires."
Once again, Howard reiterated that he was simply pointing out the fact that, given Hollywood's reputation, he did not see much potential for a morbidly obese actress to continue to get good movie roles.
