Abigail Breslin Gives Perfect Response to Selena Gomez’s Body-Shaming Critics
Abigail Breslin isn't here for body-shamers. In a post on her Mixtapes & Winter Coats blog, the Oscar-nominated actress addressed recent Selena Gomez critics.
Responding to those who slammed recent bikini photos of the "Heart Wants What It Wants" singer, Abigail wrote:
All this stuff about Selena Gomez online in her bathing suit is RIDICULOUS. Everyone is always saying how we shouldn’t judge each other, so why are you commenting on a gorgeous, talented and smart young girls body when she’s on the beach having fun with her friends AND SHE LOOKS AMAZING. Aren’t there more important things the world can be reporting on??
How are young girls supposed to grow up normally and not feel bad about themselves and not develop eating disorders if it’s literally national headline news that a THIN girl may or may not have put on a few pounds, and YET still remains THIN?
I think if we all took the time we spend making each other feel bad about ourselves and used it to make each other feel good, the world would be a better place. Oh and also if we taught girls they had more newsworthy qualities than how they fit into a bikini, we’d have a lot more happy girls.
Selena, you look amazing and more importantly look like you’re having fun. Keep rocking those bikinis.
Ok rant over.
We applaud Abigail for using her platform to encourage women to support each other and, most importantly, focus on qualities beyond physical appearance. We hope to hear more of the actress' on-point insights when her memoir This May Sound Crazy hits shelves on October 6.
