Chaz Bono Opens Up to Oprah Winfrey About How Body Dysphoria Stalled His 75-Lb. Weight Loss

Originally posted 02/06/2016 06:10PM

For Chaz Bono, transitioning was the key to helping him finally shed a negative self-image – and the excess weight that came with it.

In an exclusive sneak peek at Saturday's Oprah: Where are They Now?, the transgender trailblazer (also son to Cher and the late Sonny Bono) opens up about a major internal struggle that prevented him from being his best, and most healthy, self.

"I would have never been able to do it before [transitioning]," Bono, 45, tells Oprah Winfrey. "I was too disconnected from my body, and the dysphoria that I had with my body was too much to be able to have cared enough to anything like that."

Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling and More Celebs Who Have Been Friends Since They Were Kids

Originally posted 08/03/2014 07:00AM

If you're a Hollywood star, your childhood friends usually have a limited number of roles available to play. They can be a loyal sidekick, your crew's comical mascot, or maybe the personal assistant who will eventually take you down in a bloodless celebrity coup.

But for a lucky few stars, the people they grew up with became celebrities themselves, with their own fans, their own love interests and their own trending topics.

It must be a welcome surprise. After all, it's lonely at the top, but it's a little less lonely when your childhood friends are there, too.

In honor of International Friendship Day – commonly celebrated on the first Sunday in August – we're rounding up the celeb pairs who have known each other since before they were famous.

Cher Heading to DWTS: I'm Singing, Not Dancing

Originally posted 10/28/2013 08:15PM

No one was more stunned than Cher when she recently found out Dancing with the Stars will pay tribute to her decades-long music career on the Nov. 4 show.

"It's always strange when people do something like this. You're not thinking about those kinds of things," she tells PEOPLE. "It just always takes me by surprise. It just does."

Cher will sing her hit "Believe" and her new song "Closer To The Truth" on the show, as well as serve as a guest judge, but won't be dancing because of a foot injury she sustained years ago. "I am waiting to have an operation," she says. "The doctor got a little crankier and said I have to do it."

Even if she could dance today, you won't find Cher dancing on DWTS as a contestant. "Aren't I old enough now not to be a contestant anymore?" the singer, 67, says. "Haven't I got past the contestant part?"
