With constant media attention, celebs know a a thing or two about dealing with criticism when it comes to their appearance. Here are the refreshingly honest takes on body image we're loving lately from Mindy Kaling to Meryl Streep

1. "For young women, I would say, don’t worry so much about your weight. Girls spend way too much time thinking about that, and there are better things. For young men, and women too, what makes you different or weird, that’s your strength. Everyone tries to look a cookie-cutter kind of way, and actually the people who look different are the ones who get picked up. I used to hate my nose. Now, I don’t," Meryl Streep said in an interview after accepting an honorary doctorate degree from Indiana University.

2.  "I remember reading these articles when I was younger, and I just felt like, well, in order to look like that, you have to have some secret, magical unicorn blood that makes carbs disappear as they go into your body. I prefer the truth," Olivia Munn told Allure

3. “There’s a whole list of things I would probably change about myself. For example, I’m always trying to lose fifteen pounds. But I never need to be skinny. I don’t want to be skinny. I’m constantly in a state of self-improvement, but I don’t beat myself up over it,” Mindy Kaling said in her interview for Vogue's April issue

4. "They like individualistic glamour. I think in L.A. there's definitely a little more of a traditional way that people look. I was not blonde, I did not have a bathing suit body, and I always felt a litle out of place. I think here it's a little easier to be who you are," Jenna Lyons, J.Crew creative director, told the Hollywood Reporter
