Shaming someone else for their appearance is just not acceptable and these 5 celebrities have spoken on how they wish people would stop taking aim at each other over nothing more than weight or looks. Some have experienced what it is like personally to be called out for being too skinny, or labelled as ‘fat’ by someone cruel, and they’ve simply had enough of the hurtful words.

Camila Alves


Camila thinks celebrities shouldn’t accept body shaming: “I don’t know why [celebrities defending themselves] never happened before, you know? We’re all made of different body shapes, different curves, you know? But I also think it’s wrong to say bad [things] about the skinny girl because that’s just her body too. So I really think it’s just about embracing women how they are, whether they’re skinny or they’re curvy or however their body, tall, short, whatever that is. It’s about embracing the best of you. If the best of you is being curvy, then god bless that. If the best of you is being skinny because that’s how you’re made, then god bless that.”

Jessica Chastain

Jessica believes people need to stop judging each other: “Oh God, it’s the worst. Enough with the body-shaming! What is going on in this world? I remember being 8 years old. I was a late bloomer. I had very, very short red hair. Very freckly. And thank God there wasn’t the Internet, because I was told every day at school that I was ugly. And that no one wanted to be my friend. The most cruel things. And now these girls or boys are having to deal with that in their school and on a world platform. If I can do anything to help young girls and to be a cheerleader for people who sometimes have low self-esteem, I want to do that.”

Lily James

Lily has been called out for being too thin but thinks it’s just ridiculous: “On one hand its upsetting and one the other hand it’s just boring. I mean, why do women always get pointed at for their bodies? This whole thing happened and I’m constantly having to justify myself. I’m very healthy and I always have been.”

Meghan Trainor

Meghan remembers being body shamed by a friend: “I was in middle school, sixth grade and younger, and my best friend was a boy. He looked at me and said you’d be a lot prettier if you were 10 pounds lighter. I cried and felt horrible all day. I went home and told my mom I wasn’t gonna eat dinner and she asked me why and I told her I got told if I was 10 pounds lighter I’d be prettier and I still think about it to this day.”


Sam Smith

Sam says he takes weight remarks personally: “If someone calls me fat, that effects me way more than someone calling me f*****. I think just because I’ve accepted that [my sexuality], if someone calls me a f*****, it’s like, I am gay and I’m proud to be gay so there’s no issues there. If someone calls you fat, it’s like, that’s something I want to change.”
