Celebs Get *Really* Real About Being Healthy
"You know what? People say, 'Don't lose weight,'" Wilson told E! Style. "You don't want to be in that weird range of are you skinny or are you fat? Because how do you class yourself then? Weirdly, a lot of people say don't. But then I guess when you're doing movies with actresses who are super skinny and whatever and you got to do a photo shoot side by side…then you notice you're twice the weight they are."
Just because other actresses are thinner, doesn't mean Rebel feels any less fabulous: "But for me, it's just about being comfortable in your own skin," she also told E! Style. "You never want to be like too unhealthy because that's bad. But you just want to be comfortable with who you are, whatever your size."
And she proves that in addition to being comfortable at any size, you can also be super fit. "I exercise like a mofo. I do personal training like five times a week. I also love playing tennis. I'm a beast on the court."
“I rely on grown-woman food. I’d rather have someone pull my fingernails off than hunker down and go on an actual diet," Hilary Duff said in her Shape
cover interview. "It’s so hard for me! My sister Haylie and I once considered doing a baby-food diet, but it just sounded too disgusting." We second that!
"I think all diets are kind of weird. The word 'die' is in it," Kardashian said in an interview this summer. "I believe in lifestyle changes, and when you think of something long term, you do it better."
She's also been brutally honest about her slow and steady workout progress. "I'm not where I want to be and who knows if I ever will be. But I am healthier than ever and due to my consistent workouts, I am slowly seeing results. Hi baby abs!! I see you!!! I hope to meet your other ab friends soon (yes I'm talking to my muscles. I've never met most of them before)," she captioned this Instagam photo.

“I like beer. And pizza. And these two ingredients are not found in the purely fictional book I like to call How to Look Like You Never Made a Human: A Guide to Socially Acceptable Motherhood,” Olivia Wilde wrote in her self-penned Shape
In Adele’s recent Rolling Stone
interview, she talked about getting in shape for herself, “but not to be a size zero or anything like that.” Her regimen? "I mainly moan," she says. "I'm not, like, skipping to the fucking gym. I don't enjoy it. I do like doing weights. I don't like looking in the mirror. Blood vessels burst on my face really easily, so I'm so conscious when I'm lifting weights not to let them burst in my face. And if I don't tour, you'll catch me back down at the Chinese!" Because, which she admitted to cutting back on sugar, she's not nixing carbs altogether. "I'd never deprive myself like that!" she said.
“I’m not perfect. I’ll still eat baked beans and Oreos, but I’m on that path to not needing any of that s***. I feel like I look healthier; my skin’s better. I think you are what you eat, and I never would have said that before. I couldn’t justify it because I ate so much bad food!” Ellie Goulding recently told UK site Stylist. "I’m not a straight-edge vegetarian who does a workout every day, you know, I still drink and I still get drunk. But I feel like I’m well-rounded and sensible in that respect." (Despite her imperfections, she's still our reigning #fitstagram champ of the year. To prove it? 25 Times Ellie Goulding Made Us Want to Get Moving.)
Earlier this year, Dunham defended her decision to start focusing on fitness, telling People, "There's nothing anti-feminist about being healthy." (Um, does anyone really even think that?!) "I'm just exercising to be a person who lives past 50," she confesses. "I'm not like on a crazy diet."
“Everyone knows that I’ve never been into working out. I was always very happy with what I have. I mean, like any woman, I’d complain that my thighs were too big or whatever, but I felt comfortable with my curves—people expected me to have them," Vergara said in her Shape
cover interview. "Then I hit 40 and I started seeing a softness everywhere on my body. I read about how your metabolism drops when you age. I knew it was time to do something, so I did." Can't accuse this girl of not being honest!
"I run and work out. It takes a lot of effort to look like a normal, chubby woman," Kaling said in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
. "People are like, 'It's so nice that Mindy Kaling doesn't feel like she needs to subscribe to the ideals of beauty that other people do.' And, I'm like, 'I do subscribe!'"
"There's that Kate Moss quote that's like 'Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels' and... I can name a lot of things that taste better than skinny feels: bread, potatoes, a Philly cheesesteak and fries." JLaw famously said in a red carpet interview. (Want more #realtalk?
