16+ Celebs Who Aren't Ashamed Of Their Cellulite

Cellulite: we all have it. If you don't, congrats! If you do, congrats!

There's no shame in having it. 80-90% of women have cellulite because of the way our bodies distribute fat.

It doesn't matter if you're the fittest person in the world or a couch potato. Cellulite is a natural thing our bodies have, and it is okay to have it! These celebs are proof of that.

(And if you're here to shame these people...rethink your life choices. XOXO, me.)

Hunter McGrady

We stan a plus-size model! Hunter McGrady is all about her cellulite. Why hide something that so many women have?

Hunter openly embraces that, which makes her beautiful, and has a whole career because of that.

Go, girl.

Chrissy Teigan

Instagram | @chrissyteigan

Chrissy Teigan fully does not care what anyone thinks of her, or her body.

She posts pictures of her body just the way it is, cellulite, stretch marks, and all. No biggie, just all part of being a human in this world. Especially a mom!

Hilary Duff

Nothing like taking pictures of a young mother trying to enjoy her vacation with her kids, right?

Yikes. Thankfully, Hilary Duff was having none of that, or of the body shaming that she received after this photo was taken.

Tess Holliday

Tess Holliday got the chance of a lifetime in 2018: being featured on the cover of Cosmo.

She believes in body positivity and being a role model, and I don't want to hear a word about anyone's bad opinions on her body! Thanks.

Kelly Rowland

Some celebrities, like Kelly Rowland, happily nab "unflattering" paparazzi images and own what they're supposed to be ashamed of.

Kelly talked about this picture in an interview with Self: "When I was overseas, a picture came out showing my imperfections and someone tried to body-shame me. That moment made me embrace my derrière."

Amy Schumer

There's so much to love about this picture and post. There's the obvious embracing of the cellulite, but those hashtags truly are works of art.

#mytattooissocoolandidontregretgettingitatallat18 and #celluliteformyhomies are the two best ones, in my opinion.

Demi Lovato

Demi hasn't made it shy that she loves her body. Her Instagram is filled with shots of her showing off the shape she works hard for.

She posed this image to her Instagram story, in which she embraces her cellulite. Respect.

Ashley Graham

Ashley Graham has no problem showing off her cellulite. In fact, it's part of her job!

As a plus-size model, Ashley often posts her pictures without any editing, choosing to embrace what her body naturally does.

Kaitlyn Bristowe

This star of The Bachelorette didn't have the easiest time seeing this photo. After all, many of us are conditioned to hate our cellulite.

She changed her mind after a quick pep talk, and remembering words she herself had spoken: "Dimples are cute on your face, so why cant they be cute on your ass.”


Instagram | @iskra

This plus-size model has no issue with calling out bad beauty standards.

Iskra posted this shot to her 4+ million followers, telling them that she loves herself because of what society thinks are flaws — not despite them.

Danielle Brooks

Instagram | @daniebb3

This star of Orange is the New Black is very open about being happy in the skin she's in.

Her caption for this picture really sums it up: Why Photoshop when you this P•H•A•T (Pretty, Hot, And Tempting) .

Jessie J

Instagram | @jessiej

Jessie J is totally fine with you seeing her cellulite, but that doesn't mean it isn't annoying when people point it out.

Women are held to impossibly high standards of beauty. The less time people spend pointing out cellulite, and the more time they spend listening to her music, the better.

Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham appeared alongside her Girls co-stars on the cover of Glamour in 2017.

She happily showed off her cellulite on the cover, specifically going pants-less to put it front and center.

Lady Gaga

For some reason, the topic of conversation after Lady Gaga's Superbowl performance in 2017 wasn't her incredible vocals — it was her cellulite.

She had something to say about that, and posted it to Instagram for the world to read.

Busy Phillips

Actress and talk show host Busy Phillips recently joined Aerie's campaign as an Aerie Role Model.

She posed for the brand with the promise that there would be no retouching. Aerie hasn't used any retouching on their models since 2014!

Bonus Stretch Mark Appreciation: Karrueche

Taking a brief break from cellulite appreciation to throw in some stretch mark appreciation! Same area, just a different type of skin art.

Karrueche is cool AF with her stretch marks, and digs that it means she has natural beauty because of them.

Bonus Stretch Mark Appreciation: DeniSe Maria Sanz Laurel

Actress DeniSe Maria Sanz Laurel is a mom, and with that comes little mom things, like stretch marks!

However, she's absolutely fine with them. She posed for a shot in the Maldives showing them off!

Bonus Stretch Marks: More Chrissy Teigan

Twitter | @chrissyteigan

I love her, so she's going on this list twice. No, I will not be taking criticism. We're all lucky to exist at the same time that she does.

Anyway, I love Chrissy's habit of taking pictures of her stretch-marked thighs and posting it to social media. This one was captioned "Whatevs." I get it.

Bones Attitude Appreciation: Jameela Jamil

Do not mess with Jameela. The actress and body positive activist has no problem calling out anything resembling negativity — even if she's the face of it.

She edited and posted this picture to Instagram, showing off how unrealistic the whole photo is.

Bonus Leg Hair Appreciation: Rihanna

Instagram | @badgalriri

This doesn't seem like that big of a deal, until you realize that we almost never see celebrity women with body hair.

Riri doesn't care, though. She posted this sun-filled selfie of herself and her unshaven legs, and I could not love her more for it.

Bonus Everything Appreciation: Padma Lakshmi

Instagram | @padmalakshmi

Padma Lakshmi is fine with her stretch marks, and she's cool with you knowing that.

She posted a message on her birthday, detailing her acceptance of her body and the standards placed on women in entertainment.
