It's hard to believe it, but there was a time when Jessica Alba was unhappy with the way she looked.
"I was a lot more critical of my body when it was probably pretty awesome," she admits in the October issue of Health.
"Why did I not ever wear jean shorts? That's so crazy. I was so skinny. I didn't have any cellulite … what was I thinking?"
But after she had two kids – daughters Honor, 5, and Haven, 2 – the actress became more accepting of her body.

Kim Kardashian is taking in the final few days of summer in style.
The new mom, 32, stepped out in Beverly Hills on Wednesday in dark, rolled-up pants and a gold-belted, low-cut white dressy top, revealing her full post-baby body.
With her new blonde locks in full view, the slimmed-down reality starlet looked relaxed, wearing shades and keeping one hand in her pocket and the other with cell phone in hand.

There was a time when I would only hear my male clients talk about how they wanted fit, chiseled arms. Nowadays, almost all of my female clients are adamant about having strong, sculpted arms, and that's thanks, in part, to the über-fit actresses dominating the movie screens of the '90s and early 2000s.
The incredible arms of Hilary Swank in Million Dollar Baby, Halle Berry in Catwoman, Demi Moore in G.I. Jane, Resident Evil's Milla Jovovich, and Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider, all inspired women to lose the sleeves and focus on making their arms as amazing as the rest of their bodies.
There are two main muscle groups in the arms: The biceps, which are located on the front of the upper arms; and the triceps, which are on the back of the upper arms. The main function of the biceps is to bend the elbow, while the triceps straighten the arm at the elbow.

The summer clearly isn't over for Britney Spears.
The pop star posted a photo of herself looking beach-ready in a turquoise bikini on Sunday between takes for her new video, "WorkB---h."
"Gonna get my tan on in the desert in between shots on the #WorkB---h set today. It's HOT out here people!!!!" she wrote on Instagram.
The photo was the second snapshot from the video shoot over the weekend. The first post, from about 24 hours prior, shows the singer through a camera viewfinder in a yellow and black bustier and long black gloves.

Growing up I was always the bigger girl.
I hated being the "clothes holder" for my friends when we went shopping because when I was 13, I was a size 28 and could never try on the same things.
In high school I'd get to class early so people wouldn't see me trying to squeeze into my desk. I was so embarrassed. But then I ate two bowls of cereal and two bowls of ice cream with chocolate sauce, peanuts, cookies and whole milk poured over it to make me feel better before bed.

Helen Hunt made a splash at the beach – and the water had nothing to do with it!
On Monday, the Oscar-winning actress, 50, was photographed wearing a flattering black one-piece swimsuit at Venice Beach in L.A., while shooting scenes for her new surfer movie Ride, which she not only wrote but is also directing and producing.
In the film, Hunt plays a magazine editor who discovers her son has dropped out of college to become a surfer. Her character follows the boy to California, where she meets a surf instructor played by Luke Wilson.
