What you feel about your own body is all that counts – which is why these 5 stars have all spoken about body image. Miley Cyrus stood up for herself when she was called fat, saying that she loves her womanly curves. Adele says she doesn’t want to spend her whole life hung up over body issues and Christina Hendricks believes we all need to embrace the beautiful parts of ourselves by looking in the mirror, while Kate Beckinsale admits she has her bad days when she doesn’t like how she looks.
Adele, who is known for her fuller figure, says she doesn’t want to let her body rule her life: “I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down, and I don’t want that in my life. I have insecurities, of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me.”
Miley Cyrus took to twitter to defend her body after she was called fat: “By calling girls like me fat, this is what you’re doing to other people, I love myself & if you could say the same you wouldn’t be sitting on your computer trying to hurt others. I don’t wanna be shaped like a girl I love being shaped like a women & trust me ladies your man won’t mind either.”
Kate says she is normal and has both good and bad days, but she tries to keep in shape when possible: “I’m entirely normal. I have my good days and my bad days, I am a lot more body confident now I’m in my 30s and am in better shape, too. “I go to the gym when I have to, and if I have to bulk up or slim down for a film, I will. I’ve recently got back into exercising four times a week. I run for half an hour at a time but never outdoors, as I don’t exercise in public, my gym’s in my garage at home.”
Demi Lovato previously suffered from an eating disorder, and says she used to idolize skinny girls before her treatment: “It was the time in the tabloids when very, very skinny girls were on the cover of every magazine and that’s what I was looking up to. That’s what I had to idolize. I don’t want that for young girls to idolize.”
Christina Hendricks believes we need to find the beauty in ourselves: “We all need to look in the mirror and see the things that are beautiful in ourselves, and to remind ourselves of what those things are. And it’s nice to have the people around us remind us, too.”
