“Cinderella” Lily James: “I naturally have a really small waist”

A few weeks ago, after Disney released a few images from their new movie Cinderella, there was a lot of talk about Cinderella’s (Lily James) super tiny waist. Here’s what the 25 year-old actress has to say about the topic:

On having a naturally small waist:

“I naturally have a really small waist. And on top of that, I have a corset that was pulled me [within an] inch of my life … The skirt’s big and the corset pulls me in, and that’s the point. That’s the shape [costume designer] Sandy Powell created.”

On not being able to eat when she wore her costume:

“When [the corset] was on we would be on continuous days so we wouldn’t stop for lunch or a lovely tea like this—you’d be sort of eating on the move. In that case, I couldn’t untie the corset. So if you ate food it didn’t really digest properly and I’d be burping all afternoon in [Richard Madden]‘s face, and it was just really sort of unpleasant. I’d have soup so that I could still eat but it wouldn’t get stuck.”

On the controversy about her waist:

“I think it’s all very hypocritical, and they contradict themselves, and they’re drawing more attention to it. I think all that stuff’s so negative, and you’ve got to let it wash over your head. I’m so healthy. I’ve got hips and boobs and a bum and a small waist.”

On promoting a healthy body image:

“For girls growing up sometimes I think they get the wrong idea for what women should look like. And I think it’s so important to be healthy and confident and natural. And not put too much stress on trying to be thin—I don’t get the thin, thin thing at all. I’m actually finding it really hard not to eat right now.”

Meghan Trainor: “Every inch of you is perfect”

On her hit song All About That Bass:

When I wrote it, the words flew out of my mouth—I had the lyrics down in about 45 minutes. I hope the song helps girls love themselves more, because they’re adorable. Women too. We should all have a big banner, or maybe a neon sign, in our bedrooms: Every inch of you is perfect.

On how she was the thicker one among her friends:

I grew up on Nantucket, in Massachusetts, and played football in school. My crowd was all the skinny, beautiful, popular girls and I was their, like, thicker friend. This one dude I was in love with told me in seventh grade, ‘You’d be so much hotter if you were 10 pounds lighter.’ It crushed me.

… says 20 year-old Meghan in Glamour.

Miss Indiana Mekayla Diehl Praised for Having a Healthy Body

The full story from Fox News:

Miss Nevada, Nia Sanchez, may have won the Miss USA pageant, but its Miss Indiana who is getting all of the attention on social media. Mekayla Diehl’s “normal” bikini body stood out from the rest of the super fit beauty queens during the swimsuit competition, sparking fans to lavish praise on the 25-year-old Hoosier for her curvy, healthy-looking physique.

“It’s quite overwhelming, in a positive way,” Diehl told Fox & Friends.

And it wasn’t something Diehl planned for in the run up to the big night.

“I wanted to just continue a healthy lifestyle and inspire others to go after their dreams,” she said. “I never imagined that it would be in a swimsuit.”

Supermodel Petra Nemcova also chimed in on Miss Indiana, telling the show: “I think its fantastic. Each person has a different body type. Some people are naturally skinny, some curvy. We have to celebrate all different shapes of the body. The main thing is to be healthy.”

Diehl agrees:

“I trained very hard for the body I have, but I didn’t go to extremes, and I’m proud of that,” she said.

 

During the 2014 Miss USA broadcast on Sunday (June 8), the beautiful brunette became quite a popular topic on Twitter. Here’s what some of the viewers tweeted:

“I really wanted Miss Indiana to make it to the top 10. She was the only girl up there who had a relatively normal body.”

“Miss Indiana shows you don’t have to be super skinny to be beautiful.”

“Finally a contestant that’s not a bag of bones.”

“The fact that Miss Indiana is not a complete twig makes me really happy!”

Lara Stone on Her Post-Pregnancy Body: “I had body dysmorphia but the wrong way round”

June 9, 2014 in Hot Models, Pregnant Celebrities by Versus

Here’s the full story from Huffington post:

Lara Stone was turned away from a modelling job after revealing that she was pregnant. The Dutch model, who was less than three months pregnant and hadn’t even had her first scan, told the booker that she was expecting her first child before heading to the shoot. But when she arrived, she found that another model had replaced her. While Lara received no explanation as to why the change had been made, she assumes it was due to her size.

“I was really upset at the time,” Lara told The Evening Standard. “I hadn’t yet had my three-month scan and I felt really vulnerable about everything. I no longer had a job. That was it — I had to just stop everything that I knew; the way my life was.”

Since giving birth to her and David Walliam’s child, Alfred, in May 2013, she has adopted diets and the help of a personal trainer to get back in shape.

“Once the baby was out,” she says, “I was like, ‘What the hell is going on?’ My arms don’t fit into my sweaters. I couldn’t get my jeans over my knees. I couldn’t find a bra that fitted me. I had body dysmorphia but the wrong way round.”

She is now back to work but admits that it is harder trying to fit into sample sizes.

“I’ve had a few meetings because when they hear pregnancy they freak out a bit,” she says. “So they need to see if I fit in their clothes.”

She is considering having another baby but isn’t yet convinced. “Everyone’s like, ‘it’s fun, they can entertain each other.’ But I think it would be 20 years of war, then they move out,” she says. “My sister and I, we get on great now but when we were little we fought all the time.” Added to which Walliams took time to adjust to pregnant Lara. “‘What do you mean you have a headache and you feel nauseous?’ he’d say. ‘You didn’t feel like that a week ago’.”

She, too, found the process of pregnancy hard to cope with. “I was in maternity jeans from 11 weeks,” she says. “Who needs buttons when you can have elastic?” She tugs at her jeans to demonstrate but laughs — she’s no longer wearing pregnancy ones but her regular skinnies.

Demi Lovato: “I was four years old and looking in the mirror and thinking I was fat”

On why she’s been so open about her eating disorder:

‘It’s important for me to be open about my health and things I’ve been through cause I’ve realized when I was younger, I didn’t have anybody in the public eye to look up to that I admired. I didn’t have anybody who was setting a good example about real stuff. Had I had someone in the public that I really admired come out and say “it’s ok that you’re not dealing with stuff well”… I want to be that person. I grew up in a time when socialites were taking over Hollywood – that it was cool to be super, super-skinny and partying…it was unachievable. There was no-one around to say “it’s ok”. I just want to be that for other people.

On her first body image issues:

When I was four years old and I remember looking in the mirror and thinking I was fat. I was constantly feeling guilty about my weight. I was overeating to compensate for not feeling worthy enough and then not knowing what to do.

… says Demi.
