Zoe Saldana Advices Women to Feel Beautiful in Their Skin

Zoe Saldana is always willing to speak her mind. In an interview with Women’s Health UK she advices women to feel beautiful in their own skin.

I didn’t always feel beautiful in my own skin. Like Zoe Saldana, who states in her interview with Women’s Health that she was once “really slender” and “sometimes looked a little too flat-chested,” I too didn’t fit the vavavoom Latina stereotype.

At 18, I was only 98 pounds. I went to a nutritionist to help me gain weight. My bra was an A cup and always padded. My curves? Nonexistent.

So I can relate to Saldana when she said this to the magazine:

“I do look in the mirror and see things I don’t want.”

But the proud Dominican also encourages us to accept ourselves as is. And not obsess over working out or trying to be perfect. She continues:

“I do feel beautiful in a way that even when I was working out a whole lot, I sometimes didn’t.”

“…you’ll never be completely happy, so at the end of the day it’s like, ‘Fuck it. Just be happy, regardless.”

Fuck it. Just be happy regardless.

I love her brutal honesty. That’s what I realized after years of nitpicking at my body and trying to change what my momma and God gave me. I threw away the padded bras. I stopped chugging Ensures. I rocked clothes that worked for my smaller frame. I became self-first.

And now I feel beautiful.
