Julianne Hough: “I feel like dancing is the best workout you can get”

On her favorite type of exercise:

“I feel like dancing is the best workout you can get because you’re working out muscles that you can’t necessarily get just lifting weights because they’re the little, tiny muscles that are all internal and it’s that deepest layer of muscle that we have that dancing really gets.”

On her cardio workouts:

“To get my cardio in I’ll do a lot of twists to get my obliques going and my heart rate up and then a lot of cha-cha moves because that’s all about your core, pulling down your lats, squeezing your obliques, and rotating but then your butt is super tight and you’re squeezing that and you’re getting your legs super close together and then straightening them. And on top of that your arms are super stretched out.”

… says Julianne in Women’s Health.

Tess Holliday: “Imagine having hundreds of people a day telling you how disgusting you are”

On receiving criticism for her weight:

The attention that I get online is a lot to deal with. But I think I’ve learned to deal with it a little better. Imagine having hundreds of people a day telling you how disgusting you are and hundreds more who tell you how amazing you are. You learn not to listen to either. And it’s not just people, companies wanting to use me for their own reasons and I’m the only one really looking out for myself. I had to grow a thick skin. I started sticking up for myself online. I had to learn self preservation and that sometimes includes removing myself from discussions about myself. That’s why I started my #EffYourBeautyStandards. (An online movement on the most popular social networks celebrating diverse beauty ideals). People online think it’s okay to tell me, “You should not be wearing that.” And I think, “Who the F– are you?” I didn’t know these people, but they put on a brave face behind the computer.

Tyra Banks: “Models have so much pressure today. They have to be skinnier than skinny”

On the difficult life of a model:

Models have so much pressure today. They have to look good on AND off the set. They have to arrive backstage at fashion shows looking and dressed as if they are already ON a runway. They have to be slimmer than slim. Skinnier than skinny. They have to compete with actresses, recording artists and reality stars for magazine covers and ad campaigns. They have to have tons of followers on social media to book top notch jobs. And they have to do selfies that make them look relatable, but not TOO relatable, because then people may comment that they don’t understand, “Why the heck is THAT girl a friggin’ model??!!!!”

When I was a young model, yeah, we had to think about our weight, but not like today. I think I was size 6, not a size 0. And backstage at fashion shows, I looked like this photo you’re looking at. Yep, that’s teenaged me right before a YSL show was about to start in sneakers, plaid flannel and bad jeans. Mr. Yves Saint Laurent could care how I looked when I arrived to his show. But when I hit his stage, he expected excellence. And I made sure I delivered that every time I was chosen to walk his amazing runway.

I’m sending love and hugs to all working, aspiring and super models worldwide. You all have lots to live up to. And I’m here cheering for you every single day. Stay strong girls.
