Two years after the film’s release, she underwent gastric band surgery — where a band is wrapped around the stomach to reduce its capacity and slow emptying, which induces weight loss, according to Cleveland Clinic.
Asked why she got the surgery, Snitzer explained: “Because I was supposed to! If you’re fat, you’re supposed to try to not be.”
Snitzer also reflected on whether filming “Shallow Hal” was part of her decision to have the surgery.
“I’m sure it was,” she said. “I’m sure I wanted to be small and not seen. I’m sure that’s there, but I don’t ever remember consciously thinking about it.”
The surgery began a serious medical ordeal for Snitzer that had permanent consequences. She said the band slipped, leaving her able to ingest only liquids for three months because she didn’t have health insurance to get it corrected immediately.
“I was so thin you could see my teeth through my face, and my skin was all gray,” she said.
Once she got her health insurance back, she couldn’t get the corrective procedure because she was too malnourished, she said, adding that she needed liquid nutrition for four months in order to “not die.” 온라인슬롯
She said doctors eventually performed a gastric bypass surgery that removed part of her stomach and that she can still only eat tiny portions, and can’t eat and drink at the same time. 안전놀이터
In the 22 years since “Shallow Hal” was released, Snitzer has only seen it one time — at the movie premiere. The married mother of a 13-year-old has no plans to watch it with her daughter. 신규사이트
