Willow Smith

Cutting, she says now, provided “a physical release of all this intangible pain that’s happening in your heart and in your mind.” But as she read about both science and spirituality, she says, “I was like, ‘This is pointless- my body is my temple,’ and I completely stopped. It seemed literally psychotic after a certain point because I learned to see myself as worthy.” People Magazine

Jillian Michaels

“In eighth grade, I weighed 175 pounds and my nose was the size of a softball. Once, I was sitting at lunch and got surrounded by a bunch of kids who let me have it about how ugly I was – my unibrow, the fat rolling over my jeans. I was pure hell. My mom had to pull me out and put me in another school.”

Pink

“Feeling beautiful to me is when I feel good in my leather pants and my husband grabs my butt. Or when I’m sitting on a mat and my daughter runs to me with complete joy. Beautiful has never been my goal. Joy is my goal- to feel healthy and strong and powerful and useful and engaged and intelligent and in love. It’s about joy now.”

Katy Perry

“But I’ve realized that it’s time for me to show my audience that you don’t have to be perfect to achieve your dreams. Because nobody relates to being perfect. I’m ok with picking my nose. I’m ok with having bad dance moves. I’m ok with having horrible lower teeth. That’s what makes me me, and for some reason it’s worked out all right.”

Meryl Streep

“Don’t waste so much time thinking about how much you weigh. There is no more mind-numbing, boring, idiotic, self-destructive diversion from the fun of living.”

Miranda Cosgrove

“What makes a breakup easier is knowing that you will be better off and eventually your life will be easier because you don’t have to stress about the relationship anymore. I think people are in really unhealthy relationships, and you need to just step away. I’m not into drama.”

Aimee Teegarden

“In high school, I never had the right clothes. I don’t think I ever wore makeup until I was 16 and that was just mascara.”
