Emma Watson has recently been talking about how her weight has fluctuated over the years, and is encouraging girls to love their body shape! The level-headed actress firmly believes that young women should quit pressuring themselves to stay skinny, and remember that it's what's on the inside that matters. Wise words from the "Harry Potter" star! Which other celebrities have a healthy body image?
Throughout her career, Kelly Clarkson's weight has been the topic of much discussion. She was always viewed as being on the heavy side, and although she dropped 30 pounds this year, she still isn't crazy about discussing the matter. Clarkson says that too much emphasis on her size is not what she wants to be known for. First and foremost, she is a singer, and her dress size has no bearing on her voice. It's great that she didn't bow down to the media pressure and starve herself in the name of "fitting in." She lost weight with her boyfriend's trainer, and stopped losing before she reached size zero.
When Jessica Simpson was pregnant with her baby girl, she put on a massive amount of weight. While many celebrities try to stay in reasonable shape while expecting, the 32-year-old enjoyed every second of having a valid excuse to eat whatever she wanted! Simpson made it very clear that she would lose weight healthily, signing up to be a spokesperson for Weight Watchers to help her on her journey to get her pre=baby bod back. Although the results haven't been seen yet, reports say she has lost 35 pounds. Baby Drew was born on May 1, which means she has been losing weight at a steady rate for five months. Very responsible indeed!
Nobody could ever accuse Maria Menounos of being overweight, however, while many "Dancing With The Stars" celebrities shed the pounds while on the show, Maria put some on! She gained six pounds while Foxtrotting-it-up with her partner, Derek Hough, and it was all muscle. Toning up is an important part of being healthy, and the 33-year-old insists that she isn't worried about it. In fact, she was more concerned that all the extra exercise might make her lose her curves!
