Kim Kardashian Talks Being a Body-Positive Role Model for North


On having a positive body image:

“Having a positive self-image has always been important to me because it affects so many aspects of my life: my work, my relationship with my husband and my life as a mom. After I had [North West], there was a part of me that was nervous about whether I’d be able to get back to anywhere near my pre-pregnancy weight and feel confident again, since I was now 50 pounds heavier. I knew I had to put in a lot of work, but I got there—it took me a good six or seven months. After 10 months, I felt like I was even better than before. I was curvier. I really felt like all the hard work paid off. The second time around, it was easier for me to embrace the changes. I loved finding looks that showed off my pregnancy curves.” After Saint’s birth, she wrote, “I decided to set goals for myself. I was motivated, but it was tough! It isn’t easy to just bounce back.”

On jealousy & insecurity:

“I was so jealous of women who had these cute little baby bellies and would gain 25 pounds—and then, a few weeks after giving birth, somehow look exactly like they did before they were pregnant. That’s not me.”

On being a body-positive role model for North:

“As North gets older, she’ll start to be more aware of herself and her body. Her attitude toward her body is directly related to my own, so it’s my responsibility to make sure she understands that positive body image comes from having a healthy self-esteem. We all have our hang-ups and things we might want to change, but my curves make me who I am. So I embrace my body and the changes I’ve gone through. If anything, those changes remind me of what I’m able to create with my body: two little angels that I love beyond words.”

Diane Kruger: “My Size 2 Body Needs Toning”


On her lifestyle and how her workouts fit in it:

“I love New York. I was born in Europe. Went to school in Paris. I make movies in French. I just visited Sri Lanka. And I’m from Germany. Algermissen, near Hildesheim. I lived here 20 years ago. I miss it. My friends are here. I come to New York so much. It has the best food. I love the yellow cabs. I visit Brooklyn. I take the subway. I don’t like stairs too much so I now have a bike. I go to the gym four times a week. No treadmill but I lift weights. I’ll never have a butt like Beyoncé but my body (size 2) needs toning. There’s no problem being recognized because you hide in jeans, T-shirt, big hat, no makeup and nobody knows you.”

Julianne Hough: “Pizza is my favorite food. I eat it a lot!”


On being fit and her favorite food:

E! News recently posted a picture of me coming out of the gym, and there were all these comments about the photo, like, ‘We could have abs like this, but we love pizza too much.’ I started laughing because pizza is my favorite food. I eat it a lot! I want everyone to know that I’m not Miss Perfect. You can cheat every once in a while, and that’s OK. You can still have a fit body as long as you work out regularly and eat relatively healthfully throughout your life.
