Comedian Louis C.K. has built his career out of pushing the envelope, but it was Monday’s episode of his FX series “Louie” that really got people talking: Sarah Baker, who guest-starred as C.K.’s love interest, gave a memorable speech about life as a “fat girl” that’s being called both amazing and controversial, according to Yahoo Shine.



"Louie," written, directed, and starring C.K., centers on a semifictional character named, yes, Louie, a standup comedian and single father of two. During Monday’s episode, titled “So Did the Fat Lady,” actress Sarah Baker ("The Campaign," "Sweet Home Alabama") played a funny, sharp, no-b.s. waitress named Vanessa who asks Louis out on a date. The pair seem like a perfect match, except for one thing — Baker is overweight. But, she does have hockey tickets so Louis accepts and during their date, Vanessa shares what it’s like to be a self-described fat girl on the dating scene.
