It is incredibly refreshing to have public figures, celebrities, and actresses who speak out against the body obsession that runs rampant in Hollywood and throughout our country. In this day and age in particular, it is high time we have women to look up to who take care for themselves, but also defy the traditional look of a Hollywood starlet.
Who do we love? Women who just don’t care how they are perceived. Comfortable in their own skin. And they don’t need your permission or approval to do so. Seriously, these are our heroes.
The voluptuous star of Mad Men, which wrapped last night in a blaze of glory, has been praised for years about her very true-to-form hourglass figure. What we know and love about Hendricks is that she is happy, comfortable, and strong in her shape.
“Back when I was modeling, the first time I went to Italy, I was having cappuccinos every day, and I gained 15 pounds. And I felt gorgeous! I would take my clothes off in front of the mirror and be like, ‘Oh, I look like a woman.’ And I felt beautiful, and I never tried to lose it, because I loved it.”
The Australian funny lady is one of the stars of this summer’s box office smash Pitch Perfect 2. Wilson is hilarious, talented, and an extremely important asset to the body image standards conversation. Wilson is not a size 0, and plays a character called “Fat Amy,” so clearly her size is a talking point. With grace and beauty, however, Wilson stands up to the discrimination.
“I don’t really care what I look like that much, and I think women out there should just be happy with the way they look. They shouldn’t really try to conform to any kind of stereotype. Just be happy and hopefully healthy.” (more…)
There’s no doubt that today’s top TV shows feature some of the most beautiful people we’ve ever laid eyes on. My personal favorite is English actress Michelle Dockery who plays Lady Mary Crawley on the series Downton Abbey. The star’s petite figure, elegant costumes and defined cheek bones are enough to compel a full-on girl crush.
As the Emmy Awards approach this Sunday, we’re crossing our fingers that our favorite stars bring home awards for their outstanding work as our most-loved on-screen characters. But we also look forward to scouting out the best dressed and the hottest bodies among the crowd.
In a sea of fine actors, we’ve picked out our top 10 favorites and highlighted their nominations as well as their diet and fitness routines. Check and see if your most-loved celebrities made the list and cheer them on this Sunday when the Emmy Awards air live at 7 p.m. Eastern time on ABC.
Today, People Magazine announced its annual list of the World’s Most Beautiful Women; the magazine hits newsstands tomorrow, April 27. Gracing the 2012 cover is new mom and Hollywood super star Beyonce, who will be joined by nearly 180 other women who define beauty.
The top ten list includes some of the biggest television, music, and movie stars of the past year. What we like about all of them, including Miranda Lambert, Charlize Theron, and Christina Hendricks, is that they all embrace fit, active, healthy lifestyles. None of them are doing anything too extreme and all trying to practice moderation for the most part, not an easy task in the land of indulgence.
We’ve rounded up the diet and fitness techniques of this year’s top 10 most beautiful women.
Fitness magazine just released its list of the best celebrity bodies of 2010. Just as a warning: This is probably not the article you want to be reading after polishing off the last three slices of the holiday pecan pie.
Pie or no pie, having a perfect body is part of the celebrity’s job responsibility – or so it all too often seems.
The good news about this list is that Fitness Magazine drew from a variety of body shapes and sizes when selecting their contenders. So, without further adieu, here is the best celebrity bodies of 2010 list. (more…)
Looks like UK’s Daily Mail needs to do more fact-checking on their anonymous sources. An unnamed person told the British publication that Christina Hendricks is starting the first diet of her life. “Christina has got sick of all the talk of her being the curviest woman in Hollywood. For her it basically meant she was being called fat.” The article further claimed that cutting carbs and alcohol to shed 35 pounds.
The article sparked outrage. The Mad Men star’s sexy curves have given hope to big girls everywhere, and have been hailed as a return to a more realistic ideal for a woman’s body.
Happily, Chloe Melas of HollywoodLife confirmed that the claims are false. Melas ran into Hendricks at Kristin Stewart’s Welcome to Riley’s after party last night. “I’m completely happy with my body, I’m not dropping 35 pounds!” The actress was reportedly surprised and shocked by the story.
