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.

On her looks:
I’m good-looking enough that I can work in the business. I get enough attention from men that I feel good. I see pictures of myself now, and I look younger than I think of myself.
My parents made me think I was a genius supermodel, and it was kind of too late when I found out that they had been lying. But I was always really confident, though there have been bumps in the road. During freshman year of college the girls at the school were just so much hotter than me. I couldn’t compete, and I lost all my self-esteem. I was confused about where my value lay, and then I figured it out.
On keeping it real:
I’m realistic because if I look my absolute best and go to an awards thing, I’m still going to be seated next to Blake Lively or Emily Ratajkowski. So that can break your heart or you can be like, “This is pretty good. I’ll take this level.”
