09:20 am - I kind of love Keira Knightley for this
From British Elle (via MSN.com):

The expletive-loving thespian also reveals her continued lack of self-esteem over her lithe 5-foot-8 figure (she admits she "hates" her legs). Her idea of perfection? The cleavage- and curve-heavy shapes of Scarlett Johansson and Kate Winslet.

"That kind of decadent flesh is absolutely beautiful," the sylphlike starlet says. "How sexy on a woman."

She admits she's "consciously" working on being "happy in her own skin," a process that involves a grueling regimen of carbo-loading, exercise avoidance and grape-based nightcaps.

"I'm trying to go, '[Bleep] it,' and have bowls of pasta or whatever makes me happy," explains Keira. "I haven't been to the gym since January and I'm drinking about half a bottle of wine a night. I'm not one of those people who's going to jog five miles every morning. [Bleep], you've got one life, live it."


Not that I'm saying we should all conciously try to live an unhealthy lifestyle, 'cause exercise and healthy eating are important for all of us, but it's so nice to see someone so "lithe" and "sylphlike" (Hollywood-speek for "skinny enough to pick your teeth with) discuss the beauty of the curvy woman. In fact, I'm going to start thinking of my body as "decadent flesh."

I LOVE Keira Knightly.
Not only is she an amazing actress (and an absolute knockout)- but IO just LOVE when she makes statements like these to challenge all that is unhealthy about Hollywood and its perverse ideals.
