The Internet's given us many good things, like pictures of hunks holding puppies and videos of Mike Tyson falling off a hoverboard (#neverforget), but it's also given us terrible things like Internet trolls who try and rip on anyone who's not perfect. While Hollywood's unattainable beauty standards are nothing new, there are a fresh crop of women who won't bow down to traditional ideas of beauty or to hateful trolls. Here are 9 quotes from female celebrities who won't be body shamed.
1. Serena Williams is an amazing athlete who's proud of her body.
"When I was young I thought I should be built more like an athlete — long and lean — not with a womanly figure … I learned to be proud of my curves and to embrace my large boobs and my butt. It's all about loving who you are and realizing that you're beautiful."
2. Amy Schumer uses humor to shut down trolls.
“I’m probably like 160 pounds right now and I can catch a dick whenever I want, like, that’s the truth. It’s not a problem!”
3. Adele proves confidence comes from within.
"I've never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I'm very proud of that."
4. Kate Winslet has no time for body shamers.
"You only have one life, I don't want to spend my life worrying about how I look or what other people think."
5. Melissa McCarthy doesn't need to change.
"I've never felt like I needed to change... I've always thought, "If you want somebody different, pick somebody else." But sure, criticism can sometimes still get to me. Some things are so malicious, they knock the wind out of you."
6. Rihanna knows not everyone's a size zero.
“You have to remember that it’s not practical or possible for an everyday woman to look like [models]. Being size zero is a career in itself so we shouldn’t try and be like them. It’s not realistic and it’s not healthy.”
7. Kristen Bell always keeps it real.
“Who cares if there are lumps on my thighs? I’m guilty of having human legs made up of fat, muscle, and skin, and sometimes when you sit, they get bumpy!”
8. Rebel Wilson doesn't conform to typical Hollywood standards.
“I don't really care what I look like that much. And I think that women out there should just be happy with how they look and they shouldn't really try to conform to any stereotype. Just be happy and hopefully healthy."
9. Kelly Clarkson feels happy in her own skin.
“ I’ve just never cared what people think. It’s more if I’m happy and confident and feeling good, that’s always been my thing. And more so now, since having a family – I don’t seek out any other acceptance.”
