Rachael Leigh Cook Militates Against Photoshop, Calls It a Travesty | photoshop job celebrity quotes beauty body image

Actress Rachael Leigh Cook (31) recently expressed her strong attitude against photoshopping and media’s manipulation in a conference that regarded the impact that these have on today’s youth. Her points are quite strong and she is definitely outspoken – lots to read ahead via Huffington Post:

Actress Rachael Leigh Cook has joined forces with Academy Award winner Geena Davis, The Creative Coalition, and Girl Scouts of the USA for a Summit in Washington, D.C to address the impact of media images on youth. The group addressed particularly the struggle girls go through reconciling media’s idealized portrayal of women with their own bodies and self-worth.

“I did not grow up getting told about how manipulated the images we see of women and girls out there are, and I think it’s an absolute travesty that young women are seeing what the media is feeding them,” Cook told Pop Tarts. “It breaks my heart to be part of an industry and part of a machine that really pushes out these images and propagates these really terrible standards that are false.”

This is something Cook, 31, can relate to first-hand. After completing her first film “The Babysitter’s Club” at age 15 in 1995, the actress battled her own body image-related demons.

“I remember gaining quite a bit of weight on the first movie that I worked on because, ‘hey, free food!’. You’re at that stage where your body is just changing so actively, so it was a natural change, but I remember finishing that film and realizing that I had gained probably 10 pounds over the course of filming which is a lot when you’re only 5′2,” Cook said. “I knew then that I needed to go and really try and get healthy. I went too far in the other direction and I worried my parents for a while, I think it’s fair to say. I think that it’s something that many, many teenage girls go through, especially ones that are achievers and ambitious. You’re looking for a sense of control, and when you’re in a really transitional phase in your teenage years, I think it’s a pretty normal reaction to develop food issues.”

Jessica Simpson: ‘When I’m sad, I want to eat’

Jessica Simpson: When I’m sad, I want to eat | jessica simpson celebrity quotes

Yesterday, Jessica Simpson shared a sweet thought with us – and today, the singer/ actress talks about her attitude towards food:

On her relationship with food:

“I’m from Texas, I like everything fried, which is the really unfortunate thing. When I’m sad, I want to eat, but when I’m happy, I don’t really think about it. When I’m hungry I’ll eat. When I’m not hungry, I won’t. I’m not that much of a calorie counter, but I do think about it. I’m from Texas, so I love everything fried. I’ll give myself a cheat day every week. I believe it’s important to not say, ‘I can’t have this’. I think there’s ways to do things in moderation … you definitely have to eat things you love.”

On her ideal day:

“A good pampering day for me would be vegging out on the couch, eating whatever the heck I want to eat and watching all my TV shows.”

…. says Jessica.

Jessica Simpson Wears Black, Brings the Quote of the Day | jessica simpson celebrity quotes

‘There’s no way you’re not going to be affected by the ugly things people say about you. It’s very hurtful. It definitely brings up a lot of your own insecurities. It takes a great family and wonderful friends – and love definitely helps, too – to get through it. He (her boyfriend) definitely makes me happy and makes me very comfortable being who I am. It’s nice to be with somebody who praises you for all the right reasons.’

… says Jessica.

Crystal Renn Talks about Her Weight Loss

Crystal Renn Talks about Her Weight Loss | hot models crystal renn celebrity quotes

Former plus-size, current not-really-plus-size model Crystal Renn (who is now a size 8-10) opened up about her recent (major) weight loss. We’ve got the details from Daily Mail:

She shot to fame as one of the world’s most famous plus-size models. But last night Crystal Renn admitted that she is now no bigger than a U.S. Size 8-10 (UK Size 12-14). The 24-year-old Chanel model, who was previously a UK Size 16, said that she finally felt ready to exercise for the first time since her teens, when she suffered from an eating disorder and became addicted to working out for up to eight hours a day. She revealed that a difficult break-up had contributed to her decision to embrace a more healthy lifestyle, and a combination of hiking and yoga had helped the weight drop off.

She told NY Magazine: ‘In the past, I avoided exercise because it brought back terrible feelings. I wasn’t ready. And I was scared that maybe I was going to be addicted again. That’s a fear that goes through your mind, whenever you’re getting over an addiction or a disease like anorexia, yeah, I absolutely was worried. But then I guess you could say my life changed in a really drastic way. For one, there was a split-up that I went through that was very difficult, and I thought, “You know what? I need to be in a good place. I need to find me again.”’

I went backpacking for three weeks and I came back and I had lost some weight. And basically I’ve been traveling ever since. This is just how my body is now… It’s been strange, actually, because it’s not something I’ve been trying to do,’ she admitted. She added that her current routine was far from rigorous: ‘I think I probably have a good relationship with the exercise that I do do,’ she said. ‘I’m taking care. I’m just in a really good place. I do hiking. I do yoga, but nothing crazy, just in my house. It brings me peace.’
