Yes, queen! Jameela Jamil is here to say that she adores all of her body, including any tiny imperfections. The actress posted a photo of her thigh cellulite with an empowering message about body positivity. It was refreshing for fans to see a social media picture that had no filter or airbrushing done to it.
“Love every inch,” the 33-year-old wrote on a selfie she posted originally on her Instagram Story on Sunday, April 14. The snap showed The Good Place star makeup-free and dressed for spring in an orange dress with blue flowers. She was riding in the back of a car and had her dress pulled up to expose a few dimples on her legs.
She thought the message was so important that she also shared the photo on her timeline. “Even the bits you were told were ‘wrong.’ They aren’t wrong, they’re f—king normal,” she captioned the powerful picture. “They’re human. Thank your body today. It’s your friend. Whether or not fashion and film told you it is … These are my babe-bumps.”
Fans loved the realness and rallied to support the London native. “I love how you inspire so many women,” one person gushed. Someone else wrote, “I’m so grateful to you for how you choose to use your platform. Thank you on behalf of myself and my two-year-old daughter who will be walking into a better more accepting world because of people like you.” Another user simply added, “Needed this.”
The advocate is constantly reminding followers that social media is full of Facetune and people altering themselves. She even called out a photo of herself on March 6 for being overly edited. “I was just doing a new spoof motivation sultry pic and was struck by how edited this picture of me is,” she captioned the professional picture.
“It made me so mentally unwell trying to live up to this image in person. Airbrushing is the DEVIL,” she continued about the snap of herself in a strapless cheetah dress. On the photo itself, she noted things that were altered like, “My arm wasn’t this thin” and “I am darker skinned than this.”
Jameela is here to remind people to love their bodies despite any curves, edges, bumps or imperfections. Keep being you, girl!
