Size 8 Celebrities
Everyone knows that in Hollywood, only the skinniest ones are considered “sexy” by the public eye. Sadly, this horrible truth rings true. If a star goes out and does not look like skin and bones, or if the media gets a whiff of cellulite in any celebrity, the paparazzi goes on a field day, resulting in a negative body image for women everywhere. When did a size 0 or a size 2 become the perfect notion of beauty? These superficial standards are anything but realistic, and these size 8 celebrities are on a crusade to prove to the world that a size 8 is not chubby. What matters is what kind of person you are on the inside—and that’s what you should truly be proud of!
The multi-award winning actress has had tons of acting recognition in her name. She not only has the acting chops of a Hollywood legend, she has also spoken out time and time again about the positive message of loving your own body. She certainly doesn’t mind that she’s one of the size 8 celebrities on the red carpet. “I look like people that walk down the street. I don’t have perfect boobs, I don’t have zero cellulite – of course I don’t – and I’m curvy. If that is something that makes women feel empowered in any way, that’s great.”

Funny comedienne Mindy Kaling also knows what it’s like to be on the chubbier side of Hollywood. That may be true for size 8 celebrities, being that size just makes an average woman normal. “Since I am not model-skinny, but also not super-fat and fabulously owning my hugeness, I fall into that nebulous, ‘Normal American Woman Size’ that legions of fashion stylists detest.” She believes that a size 8 is definitely not a fat size, and we agree. “For the record, I’m a size 8 (this week anyway). Many stylists hate that size because, I think, to them, I lack the self-discipline to be an aesthetic, or the sassy confidence to be a total fatty hedonist. They’re like ‘Pick a lane.'”
This American Idol winner is one of the greatest singers nowadays, and is very comfortable with her healthy size. Kelly has had ups and downs with her weight and is always very open about it. She’s really comfortable in her own skin, regardless of what the press, or what other people say.
“My happy weight changes. Sometimes I eat more; sometimes I play more. I’ll be different sizes all the time. When people talk about my weight, I’m like, ‘You seem to have a problem with it; I don’t. I’m fine!’ I’ve never felt uncomfortable on the red carpet or anything.”
American country music sensation Miranda Lambert knows that what counts is her singing prowess, and not her dress size. “I feel my best when I’m a toned, not flabby, size 8,” she says with confidence.
When a designer dropped an insulting comment about her size at a dress fitting, Gemma Arterton stuck to her positive body image and size pride. “It is ridiculous. I went to a designer the other day — who will remain nameless — and he said to me: ‘I’m amazed that you’re fitting into these sample sizes.” You don’t get to be a Bond Girl if you’re not as smoking hot as she is, and she knows it! “I’m a size 8 to 10! I should be amazed that the largest you’re making these is a size 6.”
