That's kind of a superficial attitude, don't you think?

Hey, I'm all for women having eye candy, same as men. But I think historical fiction owes at least some small nod to the facts. Henry VIII, in later life, was morbidly obese. He could not ride a horse, and when the ulcers on his legs were bad, he could not even walk. That was the man who married the fifteen-year-old hottie, Katheryn Howard. Is it any wonder that she had an affair with a young courtier, of her own age?

The Shouting Studmuffin's refusal to don a fat suit to play the king who is arguably history's most famous fat guy distorts the relationships past the point of reason.

If you're playing Abe Lincoln, you should put on the beard.
