Celebs Who Love Their Bodies (With Before & After Pics!)Celebs aren't perfect. This we know. Even Miley and Amanda have their weight and body issues! But just how do they deal with those body bits they don't love to bits? Click on for their 'gURLs of wisdom' on dealing with those evil negative body image thoughts that creep into every gURLs brain! Maybe, just maybe, their words'll make that mean voice in your head shut the eff up! Wink wink. And in the meantime? Shout out your body woes on the Boards!
Growing up in the spotlight like MyCy did could make some gURLs way self-conscious, but Miley has a rather healthy way to figure out what beauty is...
"Beauty is the enemy. We try to conquer not feeling beautiful all our lives. It's a battle that can't be won. There's no definition of beauty. The only way to achieve beauty is to feel it from inside without breaking down into individual physical attributes."
Jennifer Hudson, then
This gURL is getting loads of attention for her major weight loss, but shes' the first to admit that it might be for the wrong reasons...
Jennifer Hudson, now
"I don't want to lose any more weight and you're never going to see me skinny."
Let's just say this gURL knows how to work it...
"If I don't do sit-ups, my stomach sticks out, but legs are easy for me.That's my lucky spot."
Scarlett Johansson, then
Perhaps a modern day Marilyn, Scarlett has something to say about those hips of hers...
Scarlett Johansson, now
"I don't need to be skinny to be sexy. I try to stay fit and eat healthily, but I'm not anxious to starve myself and become unnaturally thin. I don't find that look attractive on women."
Leave it to B to make positive body image about emotion, but not emotional...
"I feel best when I'm not really thin and not really heavy, like now, when I'm still curvy. Whatever is a natural weight for you is usually what looks best."
Kim Kardashian, then
We refuse to believe there is better definition of 'skinny' than Kim's...
Kim Kardashian, now
"For me, skinny is just a style of jeans -- not a goal."
Crystal Renn, then
One of gURL's favorite models had a famous battle with eating disorders and justifying her size. But here's why she needs no justification at all...
Crystal Renn, now
"As my body was evolving and changing, becoming bigger in my recovery, I relished every moment of it, because I knew those pounds meant health for me, and I knew they meant happiness for me. It was a time where I was rediscovering myself, rediscovering my body, trying to understand who I am and what I am in this shell. And I wanted to love it and be comfortable with it and to show it. I'm an individual. I don't have to conform to any society standards set for me. I need to be me."
Lady Gaga, then
It takes a whole lot of confidence to walk around without pants on. Here's how she does it...
Lady Gaga, now
"When I wake up in the morning, I feel just like any other insecure 24-year old girl. Then I say, 'Bitch, you're Lady Gaga, you get up and walk the walk today.'"
Amber Riley, then
Practically everything about Amber makes us whoop with Glee, but this amazing quote especially...(like how we rhymed there?)
Amber Riley, now
"When I was younger I was teased for being skinny...kids would call me matchstick and Q-tip because my big head did not sit well on my skinny body. Then I got in high school and I got very womanly. My body kind of developed very, very early, and suddenly I was too curvy. At first I was too small and then all of a sudden too big...it seemed I was always teased about my body. One day I kind of just realized that it didn't really matter...who cares what people say? I am happy with myself and that's all that matters!"
Amanda Seyfried, then
Karen's boobs could tell the weather in Mean Girls, but Amanda could barely watch them in action...
Amanda Seyfried, now
"It's very hard for me to watch a movie anymore with me in it. I used to not care. But recently I've been playing the romantic lead, and in order to be a romantic lead, you've kind of got to be pretty in my opinion. Clearly, some people think I can play the attractive girl. That is still a mystery to me. It's a face thing--I pick apart my face. I guess we're naturally inclined to want to change things about ourselves, and that gets heightened when I'm watching on a big screen. And it's OK. Sometimes you wake up and you like it and sometimes you don't. As comfortable as I am with myself day to day, watching it? It's just strange."
