Well, now color me enamored because Amanda just took my breath away with her latest interview in Allure Magazine. She always struck me as someone who never got too caught up in how she looked, which I really appreciate in celebs. She’s not afraid to talk about her insecurities so that makes us feel better in a “Celebs, they’re just like us!” kind of way. But Amanda really is just like us!
In her interview, Amanda talks about how her boobs shrunk from a D to a C after losing weight, which she now regrets: “There was something so beautiful about the size of them. When I look back, I’m like, Why did I always give myself such a hard time?”
Her latest role of former pornstar, Linda Lovelace, helped her be more comfortable with her body, “I’ve got parts of me that I wish were tighter, but I don’t kill myself, because it’s not worth it.”
I love that she’s like, yeah I’m not perfect but so what? It’s so refreshing to hear a celeb say that! Those are the kinds of messages we need to hear on a regular basis, not the “Oh I’m on this cardboard diet” or whatever.
She gives us another little nugget when talking about being made fun of her pale skin (pale is totes beautiful, ladies!) “I’d rather not be ordinary looking. I want something different about me. We all want to be originals.”
THANK YOU. We are all different, and we are all beautiful. No one is perfect, not even the Amanda Seyfrieds of the world. Take heed to what Amanda is saying, stop giving yourself a hard time and give yourself a big old hug instead.
