Why run when you can sit and Netflix?

Amy Schumer

Amy is not one of those stars who are worried about their appearance. She wears tight clothes and willingly participates in revealing photoshoots. The actress says she disapproves of grueling diets and workouts, and encourages all women to accept and love their bodies.

"For women, we’re taught to eat less until we disappear. And trained to believe that if you don’t look like everyone else, then you're unlovable. And men are not trained that way," the star explains. "Men can look like whatever and still date a supermodel. I'm proud of what I said. I think it's good to see somebody saying: I have a belly. And I have cellulite. And I still deserve love."

Schumer believes that, when a man looks at a naked woman, he rarely pays attention to flaws in her appearance — so most of the time, it's women who invent their "problems" and cultivate their negative body image.

Melissa McCarthy

A few extra pounds didn't prevent Melissa from building a successful career in Hollywood. But previously, the star had been repeatedly told that the movie world had no place for fat girls like her, and this constant criticism even made the actress fall into depression. At some point in her life, McCarthy tried to lose weight and was even able to shed 30 pounds (13.6 kg). This didn't make Melissa happy: the actress was feeling hungry and depressed, so she decided to quit dieting and carry on with her happy food-friendly life. But those pounds came back, and the weight wouldn't stop increasing.

"There's an epidemic in our country of girls and women feeling bad about themselves based on what 0.5% of the human race looks like," the actress said. "It starts very young. My message is that, as long as everybody's healthy, enjoy and embrace whatever body type you have."

Recently, McCarthy transformed again and lost 34 pounds (15.4 kg). The actress said she stopped worrying about her weight and concentrated on eating balanced and healthy meals instead. Melissa says she doesn't like to work out — so she doesn't.


When Rihanna first emerged as a star, she was very slim. Over the years, the performer has gained a few pounds, but this extra weight only makes her look more beautiful. The singer now boasts sexy curves, and her overall look is more feminine and attractive. However, some of her fans think that Rihanna should go to the gym and eat less.

The star had been ignoring these comments for a while and then revealed that she "embraces" her body and isn't going to lose weight until she feels that she needs to.

Kelly Brook

Model Kelly Brook was called "fat" and even "cow" by her colleagues — but the celeb was never keen on dieting and exercising, so she stopped paying attention to the insulting comments. The model said she accepts the fact that her body becomes more "rounded" as she gets older and likes herself for who she is, not trying to look like a skinny 20-year-old scarlet.

What's more, Brook says she's proud of her outstanding figure and feels in love with her body. Her advice to all is to eat good food and lead a healthy lifestyle — and you'll be just fine.

Jennifer Lawrence

The Hollywood actress doesn't hide the fact that, in the early days of her career, many directors and producers openly said she was too fat for a role or, if they did approve her for a picture, asked Lawrence to shed extra weight. Jennifer doesn't accept the common beauty standards and laughs at her colleagues' desire to look skinny.

The actress says it's best to look like a normal human on the screen — even if it means you're a bit chubby.
