Checkout these Top 10 celebrities who are unapologetic advocates for body positivity

Hollywood Life & Style

Over the last few years, stars have made it clear that they’re done being silent about the criticism they face. These stars have confronted haters via interviews, photos, and Instagram comments, and each message has been an inspiring reminder that everyone deserves to feel comfortable in their own skin. Let’s take a look at the precious body positivity moments.

 

1 Serena Williams 

In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar U.K., the tennis star shared comments that she was “born a guy” because of her muscular frame. Williams pointed to her biceps and said, “This is me, and this is my weapon and machine.” Later in the year, in an interview with Byrdie, Williams talked about her post-baby body, saying, “I was playing in Wimbledon, and I totally have a stomach. You know? It’s no secret. It is what it is. And I’m proud of my tummy. It pokes out a lot more than it used to, but I’m still coming back from having a baby. I just feel like this whole story about having a baby and then coming back two days after and looking better than before is not teaching the right way or the natural way or the believable way. Like maybe that happened to one person, but let me tell you, that didn’t happen to me.”

 

2 Lily Reinhart 

As fans were guessing from a picture of the star whether she is pregnant. In a series of Instagram stories the star told It’s unfortunate that one unflattering photo of my stomach circulating the internet causes hundreds of people to think that I’m pregnant. Nope. Not pregnant. This is just my body. And sometimes I’m bloated. Sometimes an unflattering photo is taken of me. Sometimes I go through periods of time where I gain weight. My body is something that I will NEVER apologize for. My body will constantly go through change. And so will yours. And that’s fine. So let’s not put so much time and effort into caring about a stranger’s figure. Bye.”

 

3 Ashley Graham

We know Ashley is well renowned for body positivity messages as she is a gem in the plus-size modelling world After Graham posted a photo of herself in Dior lingerie, one rude commenter wrote, “We thought you work out.”To this Graham replied, “Girls with cellulite and rolls can’t work out also?”

 

4  Sarah Hyland 

Hyland has been victimised of body shaming for her thin physique all year long, and she hasn’t been afraid to stand up for herself. Several times, her boyfriend, Adams, stepped in as well. On one Instagram picture of Hyland in a golden bikini, a user commented, “You look really unhealthy. Being that skinny can’t be safe.” In response to a separate post over the summer, Hyland posted an IG Story declaring, “I would like to put in a request for anyone who is concerned about my bread consumption to send it to Wells Adams because he is the sole person who knows about how much bread I consume on a daily basis. Thanks! Love you, mean it. ‘K, bye.”

 

5 Camilla Mendes 

Camilla Mendes spoke to PEOPLE on her decision to quit dieting “I was really obsessed with dieting. I don’t know if it was psychological but [when I quit dieting] I felt like I was gaining weight. Just that fear of ‘oh my god I’m gaining weight now,’ but I’ve really made this promise to myself that I’m gonna stick to this.”

 

6 Lena Dunham 

Dunham posted a nude selfie with an inspiring message, I’ve never celebrated the 9 month anniversary of anything and I realized last night why that number feels so funny – I won’t ever do it the way I planned to. My body is mostly healed and every day I find a new bruise on my heart, but today I offer myself gratitude: from the most pained place, I somehow knew to choose myself. The purest glint of who we are and know we can be is always available to us, calm and true at our centre. My friend Paul named my uterus Judy, and when she was being uppity we called her out, hence the tattoo on my ribs: #RIPJudy. Today I give thanks for Judy, for her graceful exit and for this body, which is stronger than I’ve ever given it credit for. Happy Giving Birth To Myself Day.”

 

7 Bebe Rexha

Bebe Rexha embraced her body when she gained some weight and had given out a lovely message via Instagram post with a caption. She wrote, “Sorry I had to. Yes, it’s real. No, it’s not photoshopped. Yes, I gained weight. Cause I’m human and I like to eat. And when I eat carbs my a** gets big. And you know WHAT: I love my fat a**!!!!!! Not every singer is gonna be a size zero, skinny and model looking. If that’s what you want from me then you ain’t getting it. Sorry not sorry. I’m tired of people talking about my weight.”

 

8 Chrissy Teigen 

After having Miles, Teigen shared with her fans her post-pregnancy look. She posted a video of her bare midriff while she was on a vacation in Bali. After that she tweeted “Instagram is crazy. I think it’s awesome people have killer bodies and are proud to show them off (I really do!!), but I know how hard it can be to forget what (for lack of a better word) regular ol’ bodies look like when everyone looks bonkers amazing. Also I don’t really call this ‘body confidence’ because I’m not quite there yet. I’m still super insecure. I’m just happy that I can make anyone else out there feel better about themselves!”

 

9 Rihanna 

Rihanna made a spot on entry into the beauty industry by releasing an expansive selection of foundation shades in her Fenty Beauty Line. She encouraged women to look good in their own skin and even used two pregnant models in her show.

 

10 Demi Lovato

The real champ for body positivity, Lovato told E news , “I was on Instagram and I started comparing myself to these Instagram models, and I just thought to myself, someone needs to show my fans and anybody that’s looking at my account that what you see isn’t always what’s real.” To do just that, she posted three unedited pictures of herself. In one, she wrote “no thigh gap for me, and yet I still love myself.”
