Allison Brie: “I feel like strength is beautiful, rather than that stick-skinny beauty standard”

46617D0500000578-0-image-m-46_1510764083011-1 - Allison Brie: "I feel like strength is beautiful, rather than that stick-skinny beauty standard"

On struggling with body dysmorphia:

Growing up in L.A., both my sister and I had sort of touch-and-go body issues, some mildly recurring body dysmorphia.

But these days, she feels better than ever:

I’ve just never given less f-cks. It’s a nice feeling because you live your life more and care less about what other people think. Your career will fluctuate; you’ll have highs and lows. But I can always go to the gym and work out. I’m in control of myself and my body.

On changing her body through strength training:

I feel like strength is beautiful, rather than that stick-skinny beauty standard. I was transitioning fat into muscle without losing weight or gaining weight. But I say that loosely because I don’t own a scale. I haven’t weighed myself in years.

… says 34 year-old Allison in Women’s Health.

People: Kylie Jenner Is ‘Very Self-Conscious’ about Her Pregnant Body

166077PCN_KylieJennerTMF002 - People: Kylie Jenner Is ‘Very Self-Conscious’ about Her Pregnant Body

The full story from People Magazine:

Since Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy was confirmed nearly two months ago, the social media mogul has largely remained out of the spotlight — and she intends to stay that way, at least for now.

“Kylie is only trusting her closest friends and her sisters right now. She wants to reveal things on her own terms but she’s of course having fun teasing everyone. She knows all the attention is on her and her baby bump, but she won’t share until she wants to,” a source close to the Kylie Cosmetics founder tells PEOPLE.

In September, multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE that the 20-year-old reality star is due in February with her first child — a baby girl — with rapper Travis Scott, whom she has been dating since earlier this year after splitting from her on-again, off-again boyfriend Tyga in April.

“Travis is so excited about the baby. They’re both trying to enjoy this time for themselves and keep it private as long as they can. They know it’s going to be a frenzy when they do come out,” an insider close to the 25-year-old rapper tells PEOPLE. “Travis is crazy about Kylie and he feels so lucky to have her and the baby,” adds the insider. “The family has been welcoming — they know how important it is to Kylie that everyone gets along.”

Although the couple is elated about becoming parents, the expectant Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is feeling self-conscious about her figure.

“Her body is changing and she’s very self-conscious about it,” says the source. “She’s always been insecure that she’s not as curvy or pretty as her sisters.”

Despite having feelings of insecurity as a result of her changing shape, the Lip Kit business mogul has her loving and supportive boyfriend by her side.

“Kylie and Travis are very happy together,” the source shares. “They spend time away from the spotlight and he’s been supportive.”

Kelly Clarkson on Putting on Weight: “That represents happiness in my emotional world”

4661931100000578-0-image-a-123_1510760507244 - Kelly Clarkson on Putting on Weight: "That represents happiness in my emotional world"

On being criticized when she lost weight:

That’s already happened to me. They shame you for it. Same thing happened with Miranda Lambert—I had dinner with her and we were talking about that. She was like, “Should I gain? Should I lose?” But no one actually cares about your health. They just care about aesthetics. It’s when I’m fat that I’m happy.

On how gaining weight means she is happy:

People think, Oh, there’s something wrong with her. She’s putting on weight. I’m like, “Oh, no! I’m sorry, but that represents happiness in my emotional world. For me, when I’m skinny is usually when I’m not doing well. The pressure of being skinny hasn’t got to me, maybe the pressure of being a boss of the machine and to keep going and going. I would just load myself with antibiotics and steroids and b12 shots.

On concentrating on her own health and happiness:

Sometimes it takes a bit of wisdom to learn that oxygen mask mentality, take care of yourself first then others. If you gauge your life on what other people think, you’re going to be in a constant state of panic trying to please everyone. People should just concentrate on their own lives and their own health and their own happiness, and whatever that looks like for you, be happy with it.

… says Kelly in Redbook magazine.

Emma Roberts: “I used to have a complex about being short”

462B63A800000578-5066769-image-a-31_1510241898906 - Emma Roberts: "I used to have a complex about being short"

On her biggest insecurity:

“I used to have a complex about being short. Now I love that I’m 5’2. I’m strong, and that feels really good to me.”

On being confident:

“I believe we are all innately confident, but we lose touch with ourselves and let other people’s opinions and thoughts get louder than our own. It’s important to stay true to ourselves and find that confidence we had as kids. Know that your own opinion about yourself matters more than anybody else’s. Keep turning up the volume on your own voice, and don’t let other people’s voices get louder.”

… says Emma in Shape Magazine.
