Ashley Graham: “I’ve always been told: ‘You’re not good enough because you’re plus-size.’” 

ashley-ny-mag-1 - Ashley Graham: "I’ve always been told: ‘You’re not good enough because you’re plus-size.’" 

On why she hates the word “plus-size”:

It’s like, ‘Plus what?’ That’s something I’ve always been told: ‘You’re not good enough because you’re plus-size.’  I’m not here to ban the word from the dictionary” — plenty of women own and love it. I prefer curvy or curve.

On how curvy women-of-color model friends of hers like Marquita Pring and Precious Lee aren’t getting the same opportunities:

I know I’m on this pedestal because of white privilege. To not see black or Latina women as famous in my industry is crazy! I have to talk about it. I want to give those women kudos because they are the ones who paved the way for me.

On skipping the Met Gala:

I couldn’t get a designer to dress me. You can’t just show up in jeans and a T-shirt.

On how she doesn’t like that she is famous for her size:

On the subway, girls see me and go, ‘If I had a girl when I was in high school talk the way you talk about your body, my life would be different.’ People look at my size now and know that’s what makes me famous. That kind of sucks, too, because it’s like, ‘Damn, my size is what makes me famous?’ This is the thing: I know I’m paving the way for the next generation of girls, and they’re not going to have to do this. That’s what I hope. I’ll take the brunt work and just handle it, and then you guys can just sail right on through.

… says Ashley.

Chloe Moretz Brings the Quote of the Day

chloe-moretz-sporting-a-casual-look-in-shorts-louis-c.k.-untitled-film-project-set-in-nyc-06-14-2017-1 - Chloe Moretz Brings the Quote of the Day

On how she once had a fat-shaming costar – from Variety:

“This guy that was my love interest was like, ‘I’d never date you in a real life,’ and I was like, ‘What?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah, you’re too big for me’ — as in my size…It was one of the only actors that ever made me cry on set,” she recalls, opting not to reveal the identity of the actor, only saying that he was “23, 24 or 25” and she was 15 years old at the time. “I had to pick it up and go back on set and pretend he was a love interest, and it was really hard…It just makes you realize that there are some really bad people out there and for some reason, he felt the need to say that to me. You have to kind of forgive and not forget really, but it was just like wow. It was jarring. I look back on it and I was 15, which is really, really dark.”

… says 20 year-old Chloe.

Lena Dunham: “I spent so many years loving my body but thinking it wasn’t lovable by others”

lena-dunham-at-instyle-march-issue-party-in-new-york-02-07-2017_1 - Lena Dunham: "I spent so many years loving my body but thinking it wasn't lovable by others"

On loving her body despite the criticism:

I spent so many years loving my body but thinking it wasn’t lovable by others- its sole purpose was to be fodder for jokes. I performed the insult so no one else could. I don’t regret any of it- that’s my art and that was my truth- but now, at age 31, having been through hell and back with my health and other people’s perceptions of my physicality, I feel deeply comfortable with the idea that this pear-shaped pot of honey is equally good for making people laugh and laying out like a Suicide Girl circa 2004. Love it all.

Ariel Winter: “I used to have full-scale meltdowns in bathing suit shops”

40F9D9FC00000578-4560172-image-a-38_1496261677837 - Ariel Winter: "I used to have full-scale meltdowns in bathing suit shops"

On being insecure at times:

Because I’m honest about my insecurities, people think I’m 100 percent positive about my body all the time, but I’m not. I get really uncomfortable, too. But I just remind myself that this is the body I was given. This is who I am.

On getting a breast reduction:

When I got the breast reduction it helped me feel so much better about my body. I used to have full-scale meltdowns in bathing suit shops because there was nothing I could find to wear. I always felt like crap about myself. My best friend, she’s super tall and skinny and she’ll wear the same bathing suit as me, but people will automatically look at me and call me out as a s**t or write headlines about “Ariel Winter’s cleavage. Meanwhile they look at her like, “Oh she looks so cute!” But I’ve learned to not care about that as much. I’m comfortable in a bathing suit, scars and all.

On being criticized:

I went through a lot of hate online, so I tried to change myself for a really long time. But people just kept hating on me no matter what I did. I decided that instead of pleasing these other people, I’ll just spend that time pleasing myself. Those people are going to be rude to me regardless of what I do, so I should just try and be happy with what I am.

On wearing makeup at the beach:

I’m definitely a makeup at the beach person, and I don’t care if people think I look ridiculous — it’s my beach day! Whether I want to go natural or with makeup or in sweatpants, that’s up to me. People are so stressed out about how they’re going to look in their bathing suits that they forget to go to the beach because they want to go to the beach, which defeats the purpose. The beach should be a safe space.
