Remember: Being too hard on yourself is bad for your health, too.

Kristen Bell recently spoke up about her depression, but that wasn't the first time she voiced her opinion.

"I made a commitment to not allow my narrative for the year after having a baby to be about my weight," she told E! Newsback in 2013. In another interview, she said, "I'd like to get back down to where I was before the baby, but if this is where my body wants to be, so be it." Amen.

Jennifer Lawrence says no to the wrong kind of dieting for the wrong kind of reasons. She told Elle, "I'm never going to starve myself for a part. I keep waiting for that one role to come along that scares me enough into dieting, and it just can't happen. I'm invincible."

Adele's reaction to an Internet shamer shamer who told her she looked like a "test pilot for pies" is exactly what you'd expect from her: "I would only lose weight if it affected my health or sex life, which it doesn't." See also: What's a Healthy Weight, Anyway? The Truth About Being Fat But Fit

Aniston's workout and eating habits (as well as her secrets for great skin and hair) continue to make headlines. She takes healthy living pretty darn serious, and in her viral essay for The Huffington Post, she wrote, "I resent being made to feel 'less than' because my body is changing and/or I had a burger for lunch and was photographed from a weird angle and therefore deemed one of two things: 'pregnant' or 'fat.'"

So, here's to making it to 5 a.m. yoga flows and enjoying a juicy burger later.

During a stint as a writer for Waitrose Magazine, Pippa Middleton used her column to shed light on how she keeps in such great shape and stays sane while doing it. "I grew up with the belief that good health is about moderation in all things, so I'll be celebrating healthy living through exercise, a balanced diet and a little of the naughty stuff sprinkled in..." Yep, healthy living is all about balance.

Chirssy Teigan knows that even supermodels eat fried food sometimes because, lets be honest, if you're going to indulge, you might as well make it something you're craving. "If I'm going to eat fast food, I'm going to McDonald's. I don't need to pretend," she told Esquire.

"Somebody told me, 'You have to lose weight because... in the pictures, you're gonna look better. Look at the other actors, how good they look.' So I told her, 'Yeah, they might look better in pictures, but I look better naked,'" she said during an appearance on The Talk.

Vergara's curvy figure is part of what has made her so iconic, so being your true self does pay off.

Sometimes health is complicated. Other times it's pretty stinkin' simple. Queen Latifah doesn't overcomplicate things, saying, "I don't really diet. I kind of keep everything in moderation, exercise and eat right," she told People .

What's the difference between "dieting" and "eating right," you ask? One of them is meant to be strict, and the other leaves room for a little dessert. You know which sounds more fun.
