Helen Mirren Brings Today’s Quote

January 28, 2015 in Beauty & Body Image, Helen Mirren by Versus


On beauty versus attractiveness:

I don’t really like the word “beauty”. There are physically beautiful people in the world (David Beckham, for instance, is unbelievably beautiful), then there are other people that are not beautiful, but are very attractive because of their personality, energy, brilliance, genius: all kinds of things. So I have a resistance to the word “beautiful”. I wish we could find another word that takes it away from physical beauty and brings it more into the world of true attractiveness.

… says 69 year-old Helen.

Rebel Wilson: “I just like being who I am”

January 26, 2015 in Beauty & Body Image, Celebrity Quotes, General by Versus


On how her weight has impacted her career:

‘I took something that was seen as a disadvantage – no one thinks, if you’re fat, that you’re going to be an actress and everyone’s going to love you – and turned it into a positive. I just like being who I am. No pressure could change that.’

On her recent style:

‘I’m actually using Cate Blanchett’s stylist now because I’m trying to class up my whole image and go after an Oscar…. and I might have to go naked to get it.’

… says 28 year-old Rebel.

Meghan Trainor: “You won’t see me in a bathing suit”

January 23, 2015 in Beauty & Body Image, Meghan Trainor by Versus


On how she will never wear skimpy outfits on stage:

‘I was told that I started the booty song movement but no one knows what my booty looks like. That’s the trick, it’s all about the mystery. I save that for my boy. Well, for whoever gets to date me one day. I told them you won’t see me in a bathing suit. I love when Beyonce and all those girls were those body suits but I don’t like showing the vagina area. I don’t like pointing it out, I don’t know why. I like to keep that a secret for my future hubby. I did wear a little body suit in the All About That Bass video but I was so uncomfortable. They make you pose in a certain way so that you look the best you can but I was like, “I can’t breathe”. But then I looked bomb and I was like “I get it, this was worth it”.’

On how other stars wear tiny stage outfits:

‘Everyone gives Ariana Grande crap now for being too sexy but I think she’s classy with it and if you’ve got it then rock it. I know what I’ve got and I know which of my area’s to rock, which I do, so I don’t wanna bend over in a bathing suit on stage.’

… says Meghan.

January 18, 2015 in Beauty & Body Image, Then and Now by Versus


On tanning to look pretty:

“When I had my own show, I used to tan 3 or 4 times a week. In a tanning bed. To get darker. I did. And it’s funny, one of the lighting guys came up, I love him to death. I love him, oh my goodness. He goes, ‘Raven, I need you to stop tanning. You’re getting too dark, and we have to re-light the whole entire show.’ I was like, ‘Sorry, I was just trying to be pretty.’”

… says Raven.

Ashley Graham: “Jennifer Lawrence is the media’s poster girl for curves — she’s tiny”

January 17, 2015 in Ashley Graham, Beauty & Body Image by Versus


On how Hollywood calls thin women ‘curvy':

Jennifer Lawrence is the media’s poster girl for curves — she’s tiny. There needs to be more education in schools, because that’s where eating disorders start. It’s not just about being healthy; it’s also about loving who you are.

… says size 14-16 Ashley.
