It’s hard to avoid the magazines in line at the grocery store showing off the fit and trim bodies of Hollywood A-listers like Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Alba. Katherine Heigl knows how you feel. Yahoo’s OMG! reports that the starlet admitted in a recent interview: “I’ll never have a body like Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Alba.”
The 33-year-old actress feels as if her body just doesn’t match up to her A-list counterparts.
“I was 20 pounds heavier and wanted to look like those girls with fantastically beautiful bodies like Jennifer Aniston or Jessica Alba, but I just couldn’t lose the weight,” Heigl admits to Cosmopolitan’s UK counterpart, and that’s just fine by her!
It’s no secret that A-listers put a lot of work into their bodies. Personal trainers, diets, yoga, and heaven only knows what else all contribute to a lot of hard work, time, and money put into those sculpted bodies every woman wants. Heigl says all that is just too much effort.
“It’s only now that I realize how hard those girls work for their bodies, and what level of commitment they make to do that,” she says. “I’m too lazy and I like food and I like my free time too much to spend it working out!”
It’s a great statement of encouragement for women with curves who are a little body conscious. Women, and especially young girls, are bombarded with images of svelt models and actresses, so it’s always rather encouraging to see a woman like Katherine Heigl embrace her curves. More power to ya, sister!
