This is a very good point. The perception of what is ‘fit’ has become incredibly warped. I don’t do social media or really give a shit about Hollywood movies, I’ve been active in some form of fitness thing or another for about a decade and the realities about what is fit and what isn’t are completely misaligned. Maybe this is due to the two factors above, I don’t know but the imbalance is there regardless of the cause. Not just what looks fit but also what is actually achievable by people within a reasonable time frame and adequate effort. Also what are the realities of PED’s and how easy people are to jump on labelling people being users of them.
Talking with a friend recently who’s only form of exercise is likely wanking i was really shocked to hear some of his responses about other people, specifically another friend. The other friend is possibly one of the fittest people I have ever met and has an extremely good body and all he could say was “he’s not 5%”, “he’s not baki”, the second I had no idea what that meant but checking it out I wanted to give him a hard slap at how silly that comment was.
You just have to look how people called your example “skinny” to see how warped it has become.
