9 Celebrities That Are Not Afraid of Their Curves ...

I can see the comments now – “you’re telling women that it is okay to be overweight.” I am certainly not doing that. However, by showing you 10 celebrities that are not afraid of their curves, I am hoping to get a message across. No matter who you are, no matter what size you are and no matter what you look like, you need to love yourself. Pretty does not always equal being a size zero. You can be a size 25 plus and still be pretty in people’s eyes – let me give you some celebrities that I look up to …

9 America Ferrera

We know her from Ugly Betty. In reality, she certainly is not Ugly Betty. What I like about her is the confidence she shows with her weight. In 2008, I quote, “We're not all a size 2 and we're not all a size 0, and you know what? That's okay because some of us like to eat.” Yes, that is definitely a celebrity that is not afraid of her curves and I look up to her for this.

8 Mo'Nique

Mo’Nique is certainly the type of girl that is not afraid of her curves. She has always claimed that she is fat and fabulous and that is exactly what she is. She told Jet magazine “Let’s be healthy big people.” She has claimed that she shed forty pounds the natural way.

7 Queen Latifa

Queen Latifa really is something. She has told us that she is certainly not shy about her curves. Do you know what? I don’t blame her for this.

6 Mia Tyler

This is the daughter of Steven Tyler and Bebe Buell. She does not care what people think about those curves. She makes a great plus-sized model and actress. In fact, during the year 2009, she started her own plus sized line.

5 Kate Dillon

Call her what you want, but she isn’t afraid of curves. At the age of 12, she told People magazine that she was inspired by a TV character who was anorexic to drop weight. The fact that the girl didn’t make it did not scare her off. However, she just couldn’t keep going. She couldn’t keep starving herself. She found a nutritionist and gained weight.

3 Tyra Banks

She is a full-figured woman and she definitely looks good. During the year 2006, she gained thirty pounds. Sure, people talked about her, but she fired right back at them with the words “Kiss my fat A**.”

2 Crystal Renn

In order to become one of America’s top models, she beat anorexia and she certainly did! She does not believe that thin equals pretty and I like that.

1 Christina Hendricks

She never tried to lose the weight she has on her, because she loves it. She believes that she looks like a woman. She does and I see nothing wrong with her.

There you have 10 celebrities that are not afraid of their curves. There are many more out there. Can you name a couple?
