Nikki Blonsky is talking about her reaction to the sight of herself in a bathing suit on a huge billboard in Times Square, promoting her new ABC family series, Huge!
"I was screaming, I was happy, I was crying," Blonsky said.
In Huge, Blonsky plays a kid at a camp for overweight teens who go through thick and thicker together.
But, Blonsky's character is different from the rest. She plays the "heavy," so to speak, a rebel who defies the rules.
Blonsky said, "All these girls are wanting to lose weight and my character doesn't wanna lose weight because she's comfortable with her body! Me in a bathing suit in Times Square, I don't think you can get more comfortable than that!"
