“I didn’t think being in this industry, which is so obsessed with women’s bodies and weights, could ever mess with my own body acceptance and positivity… but it has,” she said when asked about her experience with fame.
“I regret growing up in a time when the media idolized only one size of woman,” the actress said.
“My body has supported me for the past 25 years of my life.
All my scars, tears, and traumatic experiences…
Even though it doesn’t look like it did when I was 20, I wish I could love it more.”
