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.

I didn’t watch Community but I watch her new show Glow here and there, I remember a lot of men ued to rave about her beauty on Imdb. Which confuses me because to me she looks almost exactly like Kristen Wiig and a lot of people call Kristen ugly. Neither is ugly to me, but I can’t see the great beauty either. Although her body looks pretty good here.

She was gorgeous in Community, but she hasn’t aged well. She’s still beautiful, imo, but she lost all the fat in her face and the fake tan isn’t doing her any favors so she looks much different than she did in Community and Mad Men.

I just saw some pics. She did look better, maybe her face would benefit from gaining a few lbs now that she’s older (not old, just older!). But she does nudity on her new show and that’s gotta be a lot of pressure.

I agree, I think she would look better (especially her face) if she gained 5-10 pounds; she’s on the thin side as it is.

Right now I don’t think stick thin is the beauty trend / standard . It’s seems to be thick girls or curves in the “right places ” like b~~~~ and butt and even thighs . I gain weight in my stomach and wish the “right place ” or trend was to gain stomach weight !! I wonder if that will happen !

Todays ideals are even more unobtainable for the average woman than just being skinny if you ask me because almost everyone can restrict and lose weight. Nowadays, if you’re not born with the “correct” fat distribution, your only option is surgery (BBL, b0ob job, lipo, list goes on) because weight lifting will not magically create the super hourglassy figure that’s so popular right now. What irks me the most about it is women on IG who obviously had work but lie about it so they can sell their sh*tty training plans to naive girls.

Completely !! Yes like u said anyone can be skinny ( I am skinny) but don’t have a butt and gain weight in my stomach and have been made fun of for my flat butt. The hourglass ( even thick shape ) is what most girls are aspiring to now big ass and things and small waist and unless u are born with it , or gain weight there it’s hard to attain

Must be a Carrie thing because I also have absolutely no butt (my b*obs on the other hand could stand to be 1 or 2 cups smaller). I know the big butt is super in right now, but thankfully it doesn’t bother me too much. I just don’t see the appeal of that area, not even on men. Give me a nice back or toned arms any day!

I couldn’t agree more with her. I had anorexia from ages 17-20 and strength training has brought me to the place she’s at in just a few short years – I’m 25 and starting lifting for strength at 22. I literally give no fucks what anyone thinks – I think I look great and have my own personal goals for weight and strength that drive me to live the life I want to every single day, no matter what criticism comes my way. The confidence I’ve gained from my experience in the gym has made me a grounded, stable, more… Read more »

Beauty and body “trends” – go eff yourself with quotes like that. “Strength is in”, way to make the skinny girls feel bad.

People shouldn’t be caring about what’s in or not body wise. Its makes no sense: what are you going to do if your body isn’t in style? What if short became “in”? Would people start hunching? People need to have some self respect and stop mimicking

Agreed. I don’t know why someone would vote down my comment. Whatever.

The difference is that “strength” isn’t a look. Maybe it is in popular culture (but I would argue that that isn’t “strength”, it’s “aesthetics”), but in the strength community there are people of all shapes and sizes. Watch USA Powerlifting nationals, I promise there is someone competing there that looks like you. Strength is about what’s inside of you and the work you put in, not how you look on the outside.
