AceShowbiz - Kelly Osbourne revealed that she was fat-shamed by a film executive. In a new episode of "The Osbournes" podcast, the 39-year-old shared that she was called "too fat" for television back in the early 2000s.

"When I was a kid, I got pulled into the head of the agency's office," Kelly said in the Tuesday, May 22 episode of the podcast. "And he was putting golf balls into a cup and gave me a whole speech about how I was too fat for TV and I needed to lose weight, and that if I lost weight, I would look better."

"And he was just saying, 'You're not a movie star, but you could be one if you lost weight,' " she recounted. At the time, Kelly was cast as Lindsay Lohan's best friend in "Freaky Friday". However, she quit when her mom Sharon Osbourne was diagnosed with cancer.

Her brother Jack Osbourne, meanwhile, called the incident "the most L.A. s**t ever," while Kelly replied, "I know." She added, "As he's putting golf balls into a cup in his office. And I was just, like, this is the most insulting f**king [thing]."

Prior to this, Kelly addressed rumors surrounding her recent dramatic weight loss. Shutting down rumors that she used Ozempic, she said in an April interview with Extra, "I know everybody thinks I took Ozempic." She continued, "I did not take Ozempic. I don't know where that came from. My mom took Ozempic."

Kelly, meanwhile, credited having her son Sidney, whom she welcomed with her husband Sid Wilson in 2022, for her 85-pound weight loss. "I had gestational diabetes and I had to lose the weight that I had gained during pregnancy," she explained. "Otherwise I was at a higher risk of actually getting diabetes, which I did not want. I cut out sugar and carbohydrates and I rapidly lost weight."
