I rarely think about how I look anymore. Honestly, it’s so freeing and you get a lot more done and are a lot happier. You need to do the work to actually love the person you are. Also, we are all gonna die, don’t sweat the little dumb stuff. None of it matters.
On the criticism she has received for her new movie ‘I Feel Pretty’, that deals with body image:
There’s been a lot of projection. I heard a lot of, “She doesn’t have a right to feel bad about herself because she looks however she looks.” But first off, it’s not about an ugly troll becoming beautiful, it’s about a woman who has low self-esteem finding some. Everyone’s got a right to feel that feeling, regardless of their appearance. We all struggle with self-esteem. I certainly have. Your friends who you think are so beautiful, they could be struggling too. You want them to see themselves the way you see them, but it’s not our place to say who should be allowed to have low self-esteem…. But this projection, yeah: I heard the comment, “Why does she have to think of herself as skinny?” a lot. But you never see how I see myself! That’s a guess, that Renee thinks of herself as skinny. In the scene after the head injury, the assumption is that the woman I see when I look in the mirror is skinny, but I’m just seeing my same self and perceiving my body as beautiful. She doesn’t say, “I’m so thin!” She just says that she’s amazed by her jawline, and her boobs, and her ass. If anything, that sounds like a more voluptuous woman to me.

I exercise, I eat well, I just don’t starve myself. I have never been apologetic for what could be considered a flaw on my body. But every year I get more and more comfortable in my own skin – even if there’s more of it now. Not that I don’t get my period every month and not feel like hot garbage, but nothing can really mess with my baseline at this point in terms of my confidence.
On whether men like her figure:
I think men are so happy to have a naked woman in front of them that they’re not going to say ‘Oh, you have bit of cellulite’ and call an Uber.
