These celebrity quotes about body-shaming and body image will make you think twice about commenting on your friend’s muffin top or your sister’s thick thighs!
Like normal people, celebrities become the subject of body-shaming comments – even more so, because they live in the spotlight.
They say, in Hollywood, you’re always either too fat or too thin and this can take a toll on our favorite stars as well as us, their fans, who may try to imitate whatever diet they are on or what clothes they wear.
But celebrity or not, society should know better than to shame people for the way Mother Nature made them.
Here are some remarkable celebrity quotes about body-shaming and body image that will inspire you.
1. Emma Watson
“I’ve accepted my body shape more as I’ve got older. I went through a stage of wanting to have that straight-up-and-down model look, but I have curves and hips, and in the end you have to accept yourself as you are. I keep telling myself that I’m a human being, an imperfect human being who’s not made to look like a doll, and that who I am as a person is more important than whether at that moment I have a nice figure.”
2. Ariel Winter
“I went through a lot of hate online, so I tried to change myself for a really long time. But people just kept hating on me no matter what I did. I decided that instead of pleasing these other people, I’ll just spend that time pleasing myself. Those people are going to be rude to me regardless of what I do, so I should just try and be happy with what I am.”

3. Ariana Grande
“Loving yourself is sexy! You know what is NOT sexy? Misogyny, objectifying, labeling, comparing and body shaming!!! Talking about people’s body as if they’re on display ASKING for your approval/ opinion. THEY ARE NOT!!!! CELEBRATE YOURSELF. CELEBRATE OTHERS. The things that makes us different from one another makes us BEAUTIFUL.”

4. Selena Gomez
“Look, I don’t what them to win. It’s so annoying when I see it all over the place and everybody thinks they can bring me down. So my immediate response was, I’m gonna post a picture and I’m like, ‘I’m happy with me ya’ll,’ and that was gonna be the story the next day. I wasn’t gonna let that be the story. That wasn’t the story.”

5. Amy Schumer
“Is it fat shaming if you know you’re not fat and have zero shame in your game? I don’t think so. I am strong and proud of how I live my life and say what I mean and fight for what I believe in and I have a blast doing it with the people I love.”
