“I’d drive myself nuts if I were obsessed with my body image.  I am who I am, and I just don’t have a bikini body.  I don’t even have a one-piece any more.  The messages we send to ourselves and to other women, what we relay to our children, those messages have to be based on reality.”  – Drew Barrymore

“You shouldn’t be pressured into trying to be thin by the fashion industry, because they only want models that are like human mannequins.  But you have to remember that it’s not practical or possible for an everyday woman to look like that.  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.”  -Rihanna

“I think that whatever size or shape body you have it’s important to embrace it and get down.  The female body is something that’s so beautiful.  I wish women would be proud of their bodies and not diss other women for being proud of theirs!” – Christina Aguilera

“I’m not the skinniest or prettiest girl.  But who cares?  I feel sexy and beautiful.  I’m single but never struggling for suitors.  I don’t mean to sound cocky, but I like myself, I’m proud of myself and people respond to that.” – Amy Schumer

“Be confident in the skin you are in, because that is the only body you will ever have, the only place that will ever be solely yours.  Even if you will never be as skinny as those super models, or the beauty who makes everyone stare, you can be beautiful in your own way.  And you have to accept that, and own it.” – Deejae Harper

“One day I had to sit down with myself and decide that I loved myself no matter what my body looked like and what other people thought about my body.  I got tired of hating myself.” – Gabourey Sidibe

“When you do talk about yourself or talk to yourself, try to picture you are talking to your own daughter, or your younger sister.  Because you would tell your younger sister or your daughter that she is beautiful, and you wouldn’t be lying.  Because she is, and so are you.” – Amy Poehler

“I am a woman with thoughts and questions and s*** to say.  I say if I’m beautiful.  I say if I’m strong.  You will not determine my story, I will.  I will speak and share and love and I will never apologize to the frightened millions who resent that they never had it in them to do it.  I stand here and I am amazing, for you.  Not because of you.  I am not who I sleep with.  I am not my weight.  I am not my mother.  I am myself.  And I am all of you, and I thank you.” – Amy Schumer
