These stars are fighting back against harsh Hollywood standards and unrealistic expectations placed on women in the hopes that their children don’t have to go through the same.
“When I grew up, I never heard positive reinforcement about body image from any female in my life – I only heard negatives,” Kate tells Bear Grylls in an upcoming episode of Running Wild With Bear Grylls, reports US Magazine.
“That’s very damaging, because then you’re programmed as a young woman to immediately scrutinise yourself and how you look.”
So what did she decide to do about it when she became a mum?
“I stand in front of the mirror and say to Mia, ‘We are so lucky we have a shape. We’re so lucky we’re curvy. We’re so lucky we’ve got good bums,’ and she’ll say, ‘Mummy, I know, thank God’.”
Way to go, Kate!
