Real Beach Bodies! 20 Celebrities of All Ages and Sizes
These are Hollywood’s healthy bodies.
Celebrities from Kesha, to Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks and Idol judge Mariah Carey are flaunting their famous curves, in the face of the undeniable pressure to be stick thin.
“Women are starting to look within to feel good about themselves,” body image expert Christy Whitman explains to Celebuzz.
“They are learning to love themselves for who they are.”
Lady Gaga is another star who has embraced the body revolution. In September, the 26-year-old Mother Monster tweeted a photo of herself with the caption, “bulimia and anorexia since I was 15.”
The startling revelation sent a powerful message to critics who had scrutinized her apparent weight gain.
Then, last week, the “Poker Face” singer posted another photo of herself sunbathing in a bikini on the Puerto Rico leg of her worldwide “Born This Way Ball” tour.
Her blatant confidence and comfort in a bikini is proof positive that she is comfortable in her own skin.
And she’s not alone, explains Whitman.
“Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce really started to show women in the early 90′s that curvier bodies are sexy, beautiful and healthy,” the New York Times best-selling author adds.
“Jessica Biel, Shakira and Scarlett Johansson are in great shape and take care of themselves by working out and are considered very feminine and sexy.”
