I try to steer clear of too much media relating to celebrities. Something tells me if you read Beautiful You you’re most likely the same, even though it can be hard to avoid. It’s online, on TV, in print and advertising – nearly everywhere. The reporting at times can be cruel and filled with lies, which is just not my cup of tea. Or coffee for that matter. Then of course there are the constant stories about weight gain, weight loss, who wore what right or wrong or best or worst – and the list goes on.

I did come across an online compilation of celebrity quotes that I loved this week though, and I thought them worthy of sharing. So often I think we forget that a lot of the reporting that takes place about well known people and their bodies and appearance does not actually involve a direct quote from them. There’s lots of opinion, lots of comment, lots of ’a friend of Angelina’s’ going on – but not a lot of direct quotes. That’s why when I came across this story titled ‘Celebrity Body Image Quotes That Inspire’ my interest was peaked to read more about what they directly had to say. A lot of what they had to say was great!
Like this from Gabourey Sidibe: “One day I had to sit down with myself and decide that I loved myself no matter what my body looked like and what other people thought about my body. I got tired of hating myself.” Perfection. I got tired of hating myself. Such a simple, but incredibly powerful statement. It makes me wonder how many more thousands or even millions of women the world over are harbouring hateful feelings towards their bodies and when will be the time they will make the decision their ‘over it’ and want to stop. I hope soon. Very soon.
Or this one from Drew Barrymore: “My limbs work, so I’m not going to complain about the way my body is shaped.” Amen. Amen! If only we all concentrated more gratitude on all the amazing things our bodies can DO for us, rather than what they LOOK like, I think we would revolutionise body image as a concept. There would be a lot more love and a lot less angst. I’m sure of it.
And the gorgeous Jamie-Lee Curtis: “The more I like me, the less I want to pretend to be other people.” There’s so much power and energy in that. It’s all about – ‘I’m me! I’m ok! I don’t need to compare, measure against, or think I need to be like anyone else.’ Love it.
So, every now and again there is some good celebrity reporting happening that makes my heart smile just a little bit. I’m still not interested in many things about their life the media may think I am, but quotes and compiliations like this get a tick from me. What about you Beautiful You?
