Singer/actress Shakira attended the Disney’s Zootopia Premiere in Hollywood and is pretty much excited about it. And, speaking out, Shakira asked Disney to change the body shape of her Zootropolis character too!
Zootopia Premiere: Shakira speaks out about her body shape!
The pop star, Shakira voices Gazelle in the animated film. She thought that the character seems to be ‘too skinny’ to be realistic. She even revealed that she has asked Disney studio bosses to ‘put some meat’ on her character.
What Shakira exactly said?
During an appearance on Good Morning America, Shakira said, ‘When the directors and the producers showed me Gazelle, I just thought she was too skinny’.
She further added, ‘She was too fit’. So, I told them, ‘Guys, you gotta put some meat on her bones.’
The team’s reaction!
Apparently the team took her comments on board and even gave Gazelle ‘bigger hips’. Also, they have changed her eye colour by giving her some more eyelashes.
