Kim Kardashian Cosmopolitan UK May 2011
I don’t like Kim Kardashian just because she really has little to admire about. But I can’t help praising her for promoting the idea of love to yourself. She likes her body and that’s a good thing no matter what other people think about it. In the May 2011 issue of Cosmopolitan UK Kim Kardashian even admitted she feels great about her cellulite.
Kim Kardashian on body standards: “I never aspired to be a size zero. Although one time I tried on a dress with a size-8 label when I thought I was a size 4. It turned out it was a UK size 8, so actually it was my normal size. But it made me think, “Why do I even care?” I couldn’t care less if it said 14. It’s just a number. Your best measure is to look in the mirror. I always say you shouldn’t weigh yourself. I don’t even have a set of scales in my house.”
On body differences in her family: “Khloé is super-tall, with great legs; Kourtney is tiny with a great stomach. We embrace the fact that no one is really alike. Our parents always made us feel like, “This is who we are, we’re all beautiful and this is exactly how we’re supposed to be”. We never had any pressure to look different and I think that’s why we’re so confident about it today.”
On how she felt seeing her body growing and developing: ‘Kourtney would always make fun of me for having bigger boobs than she did. When you’re young, it’s embarrassing. Your body is changing and it’s scary. Then when I was 15, I realised it was great. I’ve never wished for smaller boobs since.”
