Jameela Jamil is showing off her body imperfections while encouraging her followers to just say “no” to Photoshop. The “Good Place” star went pantless and took to her Instagram on Monday to showcase her thigh dimples while telling everyone to be nice to their bodies during this trying time, especially when it comes to their weight. The 34-year-old actress hiked up her dress while sitting in the backseat of a car to show that even she has cellulite on their thighs and fans can’t get enough of her body-positive message.
In the selfie, Jameela Jamil highlighted her imperfections and wrote “love every inch” on the snap. She paired the unedited photo with her own viral challenge, labeling it the “Instagram reality challenge.” Explaining she’s gotten lots of DMs “about body image s—,” and seen “toxic influencers” posting airbrushing photos, as well as people freaking out “about their weight gain from no exercise and dietary changes,” the actress said she’s done with all the negativity regarding everyone’s lack of confidence when it comes to their bodies.
Getting real with her fans, Jameela Jamil continued, “Listen, try to just love your body for what it does, not for how it looks. Loving how it looks is too hard for some who need to unlearn all their self-hatred.” Calling her body an “amazing machine,” the star told her followers, “Even if it doesn’t work in all the ways you wish it would. Love what it can do.” Reminding her fans that even thin actresses “are covered in lumps and bumps and stretch marks,” Jameela Jamil added, “You just forget that because of bulls— airbrushing.” Ending her lengthy message, she wrote, “Don’t worry about losing weight right now in this moment… just survive.”
Her followers immediately bowed down to the superstar for being so bold with even fellow celebrities commenting on her photo. “I love my dimples on my thighs when I sit down and ESPECIALLY when I cross my legs!!!! ??,” actress Joey King wrote, while “Little Fires Everywhere” star Jade Pettyjohn replied with several clapping emojis. “God, you are the most beautiful woman. We are so blessed to have your voice influencing this generation. I think I speak for a lot of women when I say that we are so grateful for your existence and your work ❤️??,” one fan applauded the star. “This is what a real queen looks like ??,” added another. “This just radically gave me relief ?? thank you,” posted a third.
