"Voice acting just tends to be a much less judgmental sort of world, compared to on camera acting," Whitman claimed on fellow voice actor Rob Paulsen's Talkin' Toons podcast. "There's no make up or wardrobe process, I could literally show up in a sweat suit and as long as I get lines recorded, it's all good. And the snacks are great too!" She declared with great glee. Her weight increase from Arrested Development and the boom it took during the filming of Scott Pilgrim is speculated to be due to, in her bid for the role, gaining weight in order to better fit the role of "chubby blonde" half-ninja, Roxy Richter. Whitman has neither confirmed nor denied any links between the two.
Whitman currently weighs in at 540 lbs.
