10+ Celebrities Who Don't Need To Be Skinny To Love Their Bodies

Hollywood can be an unforgiving place. It tends to put people in boxes, and is quick to judge people based on their appearance, rather than the merits of their character.

Thankfully, there are those who raise a giant middle finger to this outdated 'norm.' Have a look and check out these 10+ celebrities who don't need to be skinny to love their bodies.


For years, Adele has been a beacon for body positivity. She's spent her career defying the outdated preconceptions regarding pop singers and their body image.

These days, Adele's confidence levels are at an all-time high as she makes health and happiness her number one priority.

Mariah Carey.

All I want for Christmas is Mariah Carey. Seriously, if you ever want to see me turn into an all-out fanboy, just ply me with red wine and crank up "You Will Always Be My Baby."

She owns the stage and exudes confidence in her own skin.

Jason Segel.

Jason Segel is one giant cuddly teddy bear. His care-free nature and magnetic persona give Jason an air of familiarity with his audience.

He's infinitely relatable, and as anyone who has seen Forgetting Sarah Marshall will be able to attest: he's got nothing to be ashamed of.

Kelly Clarkson.

It boggles my mind when I think back and recall Kelly's time spent on season 1 of American Idol. For years, Kelly struggled when it came to her weight.

These days, she's focussed on turning down the negativity and focussing only on the positive.

Sam Smith.

Side note: I actually saw Sam Smith perform to a crowd of maybe 300 people in Toronto. It was right before his debut album dropped when he was just starting to gain notoriety.

All his life, Sam was teased for his weight. Nowadays, he's the happiest he's ever been.

Christina Hendricks.

Christina Hendricks looks like a movie star from the 1940s. She's elegant, graceful, and vivacious to boot.

Much has been said about Christina's voluptuous figure over the years. She's constantly defying the outdated norms of female body perception in Hollywood and we absolutely love her for it.

Zach Galifianakis.

Have you heard the song "Love Yourself" by Justin Bieber? Of course, you have — who hasn't? Is it weird that when I hear that song, all I think of is Zach Galfianakis?

Has there ever been a man who loves himself more?

Kim Kardashian.

Kim Kardashian may be (arguably) the most popular woman on planet earth. Her face and is plastered on everything from billboard ads to makeup and cosmetic products.

It didn't always come easy, but now Kim has learned to adore herself and her curves.

Jonah Hill.

The perception of body image in Hollywood tends to be polarizing. You're either skinny or fat, with absolutely no middle ground in between.

Because of this, Jonah was always labeled as 'the fat kid.' After years of scrutiny, he's speaking out and clapping back.


There's a reason why Michael Scott used to say "I am Beyoncé, always." It's because she's fierce, confident, and unswayed by the opinions of others.

Beyoncé has become a role model for any and all who struggle to love the person they see standing in the mirror.

James Corden.

James Corden wants you to love your body. Since becoming a husband and father, his eyes have been opened to an entirely new perspective.

He preaches that we should love our bodies for what they are, not for what we hope they might one day be.


Lizzo is so comfortable in her own skin that her Instagram handle is @lizzobeeating. As talented and genre-defining as she is, Lizzo is confronted by trolls on almost a daily basis.

But she doesn't get mad, she doesn't retreat into herself. Lizzo just smiles and keeps on eating.

Jack Black.

I like to think that I have a pretty positive perception of myself, but I know I still have a ways to go.

For instance, I could never put on a Spider-Man costume and dance provocatively to Cardi B's "WAP." But then again, I'm not Jack Black.

Rebel Wilson.

Rebel, Rebel — I love you so! I think the majority of us would agree that there are few things more attractive in this world than a man/woman who is confident.

This is why I firmly believe that Rebel Wilson is one of the most beautiful young women in Hollywood.

"I was doing some unhealthy things to my body, and I just wanted to change it and become a healthier person." she said to People.

Leonardo DiCaprio.

I would never have thought it possible to shame Leonardo DiCaprio for anything; least of all for his physique!

But Leo, being the true icon that he is, didn't balk at the criticism. He just went and made 'dad bods' a thing.
