Amerikanska actress and author Amber Rose Tamblyn was born on May 14, 1983. In the part of Emily Quartermaine on the daytime drama General Hospital, she initially gained widespread recognition when she was just 11 years old. After that, she became known for her part as Joan Girardi in the hit television series Joan of Arcadia, for which she was nominated for both a Primetime Emmy and a Golden Globe.
Tibby Rollins from the first two The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants films, Megan McBride in 127 Hours (2010), and the critically acclaimed film Stephanie Daley opposite Tilda Swinton, which premiered at The Sundance Film Festival and for which Tamblyn won Best Actress at The Locarno International Film Festival and was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award, are just some of her roles in feature films. Her breakthrough role came in 2021 on FX’s Y: The Last Man, where she played Diane Lane’s co-star.
Amber Tamblyn Weight Gain
Amber Tamblyn, then 21 years old, had just starred as Libby in the successful sequel to the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants when the film was released in 2008. Tamblyn added that her agent had urged her to slim down despite the fact that she was becoming a major star.
With New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor on Tuesday night, the 35-year-old actress discussed the demands on young women, the #MeToo movement, and the publishing of her first novel, Any Man. Tamblyn stated her Warner Bros. representative called to congratulate her on the success of the film and urge her to get in shape.
At the time, I weighed around 128 pounds and stood 5 feet 7 inches tall. There was a female agent who told me, “You have a real choice here,” and I’ll never forget those words. According to E!, Tamblyn once observed, “You can either be Nicole Kidman or you can be a character actress.”
The mother of one-year-old Marlow said that her daughter’s lifelong confidence was damaged after hearing those statements. “I was about 21 at the time, so if you take that as an example and try to fathom being exposed to variations of that from childhood to adulthood, it has an effect on you.” Previously, Tamblyn wrote an opinion piece for the New York Times in January about being pressed to lose weight by a Japanese director who wanted to cast her in a film but insisted that she lose 5 pounds first.
The film company, she added, “would offer a trainer and a meal plan for me.” It took me a long time to laugh at being told by an interpreter that I needed to lose only a few pounds. I stood 5 feet 7 inches tall and tipped the scales at a trim of 120 pounds. If I had lost only five pounds by not eating dinner for two weeks and living off of only the deli meat from Subway sandwiches, I would have weighed 115 pounds, and that’s why I remember that weight.
Especially active in the California poetry scene, Tamblyn has self-published two chapbooks of his own work: Of the Dawn and Plenty of Ships. Tamblyn’s haiku poetry is combined with collages by George Herms in The Loneliest, a 2005 poetry collection inspired by the music of Thelonious Monk. The book’s print run was extremely small, with only 300 copies made available. On August 4, 2002, in Los Angeles, Tamblyn was featured in The Drums Inside Your Chest, a video documenting a poetry concert.
Manic D Press of San Francisco released a new poetry collection titled Bang Ditto that same year in September. In October 2009, she started contributing to the Harriet blog on the Poetry Foundation’s website. “Bridgette Anderson,” one of her poems, appeared in Saul Williams’ book Chorus, released by MTV Books in September 2011. Writing Now Poetry Society, which she co-founded in 2007, is committed to producing innovative and high-caliber poetry events.
