When Anna Wintour told Bob Richman, The September Issue cameraman, to go to the gym, he took the advice to heart. "When Anna Wintour tells you that you're overweight, the next thing you do is go to the gym," said the film's director R.J. Cutler. "The truth is, I mean, for crying out loud, that poor guy, he's lugging around a 50-pound camera on his shoulder for nine months, following Anna around, and she's like giving him her back as much as she can, and then he spends a weekend leaping up in the air, modeling to rescue her September issue, and what does she say when she sees the pictures? 'You look fat.' So, God bless her." [Huffington Post]
