Actress Sarah Baker's "fat girl" speech on Monday night's Louie is really making the rounds.
In the episode So Did the Fat Lady, Louis C.K. agrees to go out on a date with a Vanessa (Baker), and during the course of their outing, she begins to talk about what it's like dating as a bigger woman.
"You know, Vanessa, you're a very, really beautiful," Louis begins before getting cut off.
"If I was a very, really beautiful, then you would have said 'yes' when I asked you out," Vanessa bites back. "I mean, come on, Louie, be honest here. You know what's funny? I flirt with guys all the time. And I mean the great looking ones, the really high-caliber studs? They flirt right back, no problem. Because they know their status will never be questioned. But guys like you never flirt with me, because you get scared that maybe you should be with a girl like me."
She continues, "You know what the sad thing is? It's all I want. I mean, I can get laid. Any woman who is willing can get laid. I don't want that. I don't even need a boyfriend or a husband. All I want is to hold hands with a nice guy, and walk and talk..."
A huge fan of the FX show, Baker told New York Magazine
of her seven-minute scene, "All the characters I've ever played have really had nothing to do with looks. There's a lot of things that are a lot more interesting to me to play than that. So it was hard to do something that was so specifically about weight. But to me, being a fan of the show, knowing how things are handled on the show and the way he framed it so beautifully, this was the time to do something about weight."
