9 body types ‘girls like’, according to movie box office takings and Twitter
From Magic Mike to 30-foot tall metal cyborgs.
When Twitter user @mitchthammarath decided to share this thought, he probably didn’t expect it to get the dramatic, entertaining and rather large reaction it did.
Magic Mike grossed 167 million. If you still think girls like dad bods, keep dreamin pal.— mitch (@mitchthammarath) July 18, 2018
That’s right, according to them, the money Magic Mike took in the box office indicates that the humble “dad bod” is not as desirable to girls as the ripped bodies of Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey.
However, much of the rest of the Twitterverse begs to differ and, ignoring the questionable logic that movie income hinges on specifically female attraction, have applied the novel take to some more films.
Here are nine more types of body “girls like”.
1. Big, green and burly.
