Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is opening wide for bedtime pizza in her fluffy bathrobe, and it’s been caught on camera. The 31-year-old blonde, offering her 1 million Instagram followers another round of “post a pic of” this week, has been cramming her account with killer throwbacks, with one fan seemingly keen to see the 2008 all-around champion with pizza. Nastia, who faced an anorexia storm in October 2020 and just clapped back over her “gross skinny chicken legs,” is proving that gymnasts eat. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. It comes as Nastia continues to make food headlines, from her 2020 birthday donuts and celebratory Shake Shake burger to the whole roast chicken she eyed up for her “Friendsgiving” last fall.
The photo, a throwback confirmed to be from New York Fashion Week, showed Nastia solo, amid white bedsheets, and treating herself to a whole takeout pizza box, seemingly all for herself. All gorgeous in her white bathrobe, the five-time Olympic medalist held a slice right up to her mouth for the camera.
Nastia, sending out a giant grin and a reminder that she likes it X-tra cheesy, likely shut down any trolls gathering ammo to skinny-shame her all over again – last year turned ugly as a troll DM asked Nastia how she feels about “promoting borderline anorexia looking bodies.”
“It made me feel: defeated, pissed, sad, annoyed, confused, shocked, and many other feelings,” Nastia wrote as she bravely reposted the DM and delivered her clap-back in a skin-tight and bronze dress.
Firing back, the Facebook App partner wrote: “If taking pictures of my OWN body — a body that won me many Olympic medals, a body that I push each day to get stronger, a body that God gave me — is inherently promoting anorexia, then honestly, we’ve gotten to a place in the world where just BEING is offensive.”
Nastia continues to make headlines for her killer IG posts, with a recent one seeing the star battling the Texas snowstorms by lifting her leg in a bikini. See her swimsuit body below!
Nastia has yet to fail on the wowing front. The gymnast, gearing up for her Harley & Me dog brand, is a swimwear lover, but she’s likewise a fashion girl, recently showing off luxury Burberry in an unbuttoned look and donning Chanel sneakers. Liukin even celebrated Valentine’s Day yesterday in sheer Gucci tights for a pantless surprise, one bringing pops of pink from an open jacket.
