Kirstie Alley is all too familiar with the scrutiny that comes with weight gain, especially in Hollywood. She offered up her opinion on the recent Lady Gaga weight gain controversy.

Gaga shocked her fans with the revelation that she had put on 25 lbs. She offered up a Marilyn Monroe quote to those who struggle with body issues, “To all the girls that think you’re ugly because you’re not a size 0, you’re the beautiful one. It’s society who’s ugly.”

‘DWTS’ celeb Alley spoke with PEOPLE and said, “Most of my career I was pretty lean, so when I gained the weight, obviously people noticed. With Lady Gaga, she gains 25 pounds and it becomes this huge thing.”

“It’s Hollywood that is obsessed with weight. I think everyone should try to be healthy. Lean is better than not lean, but I think we send a horrible message to the world, especially to girls.”

Alley mused, “She was so freaking skinny that 25 pounds would make her a what, size 2? There’s an insanity here. I know it’s a pressure on her. I know it is. It’s really hard to play that game.”

You can catch Kirstie on ‘DWTS-All Stars’ as she and partner Maks Chmerkovskiy take another run at winning the coveted mirror ball trophy.
