Jaimie Alexander: “I hate being skinny. It’s not a good look for me”

JA-shape - Jaimie Alexander: "I hate being skinny. It’s not a good look for me"

On how being skinny is not her goal in life:

“I pretty much eat all day to keep my strength up. I’m primarily a vegetarian who has an occasional side of fish. When I trained for the movie Thor, there were days when I was burning 4,000 calories and I had to slam lots of protein shakes. Now my day starts with a green shake called Garden of Plenty, which is packed with superfoods and grains. When I’m working, craft services makes me these amazing gluten-free wraps with lots of vegetables and ‘vegannaisse’ or hummus. I generally keep my diet pretty healthy, but if there’s pizza, I’ll eat it. And I will knock back a beer or some bourbon, too. I don’t deprive myself. And I hate being skinny. It’s not a good look for me. When I eat well and work out, I’m truly at my best.”

… says 31 year-old Jaimie.

On turning 30:

When you’re young, that sounds so old. When you’re in high school or even when you’re in your early 20s it sounds like, ‘You know when I’m 30 I should just give up. Like what’s the point of going on at that age?’ And then you turn 30, I’m turning 30 later this year, you don’t feel any older at all.

Ashley Benson: “You have to be skin and bones or you’re not getting it”

benson-020916-_3 - Ashley Benson: "You have to be skin and bones or you're not getting it"

On being told to lose weight:

I get told all the time to lose weight. I got that a month ago. It’s just weird. With my stuff recently, it’s been, ‘You have to be skin and bones or you’re not getting it.’ It’s come up a few times in the last few years, like, ‘You’re too fat for this.’ And I’m just sitting here like, ‘Wait, what? Do you want a skeleton?’ But I feel good. I don’t want to lose 20 pounds, because I don’t need to…There was a point where it was getting to where a size 2 was great. I’m a size 2, but I think that a size 4 is healthy. I think that all of these sizes are healthy.

… says 26 year-old Ashley.

Zendaya: “There is no such thing as ugly”

zendayanewyoucover_edited-1 - Zendaya: "There is no such thing as ugly"

On not believing in the concept of ‘ugly’:

“There is no such thing as ugly. That’s a word that doesn’t really enter my vocabulary. If there’s any definition to being perfect, you’re perfect at being yourself. No other person can be you 100 percent; no one has your fingerprint; no one has your DNA. You are you 120 percent, through and through. Whether it is through my social media or whatever, I want anyone who looks up to me to know that I go through the same problems. I have to be confident in who I am. When I learn things about myself, I like to share that journey with people because I know there are a lot of people going through the same thing.”

… says 19 year-old Zendaya.
