We love it when celebrities use their powers for good. By releasing realistic body photos - on their own accord - they remind us that famous faces are not always as 'perfect' as they seem.
It's been depressing us over here at Beaut when we see body-shamers attacking Kim Kardashian because of photos of her with cellulite. Why does everyone need an opinion on someone else's cellulite? It makes a nice change to see unpolished, realistic body photos of celebrities because let's face it, we all have our flaws. So instead of shaming them for being, well, normal, let's give them the praise they deserve for being braver than most. We've picked the best times celebrities showed the world their flaws - because it's no big deal.
Instead of letting her online body shamers get to her, Amy responded in the best way when she posted this photo of her in a swimming suit saying she loved her body because it's "happy and healthy". We love that she's using her platform to show that there's no shame in not looking a certain way.
Chrissy was way ahead of the pack when she shared this in 2015. What looked like a simple photo of her legs showing off her stretch marks ended up encouraging hundreds of women to share their own #loveyourlines photos.
The singer and mum of two made a great point about women obsessing over the scales when she shared this Instagram post, she said: "Would you believe I'm 160 pounds and 5'3"? By 'regular standards' that makes me obese." She looks strong and healthy to us, it's so refreshing to hear a celebrity not focusing on dieting and numbers but actual fitness.
The model recently said that sharing this photo was her proudest career moment. The beach photo shows the cellulite and stretch marks she has her legs, just like everyone else. We're so pleased to hear the positive response she got for sharing.
The fitness blogger and Instagram queen showed just how misleading photos can be when it comes to unrealistic body goals. Even if they're not digitally altered the right angle and lighting can make celebrities look incredible, but it's completely misleading. Like Anna says, everyone has their bad angles.
The star took to Instagram to share a video of her in a swimsuit, proudly showing off her curves and the stretch marks that come with it. She shows that in no way does it take away from her sexiness - she stills look incredible!
