New to Bounty?
Actress Blake Lively has revealed she had body insecurities after the birth of her third child and her honesty has been praised by Game Of Thrones star and new mum, Sophie Turner.
Blake, 33 and her husband, Ryan Reynolds welcomed their daughter, Betty in 2019. The couple also have two other daughters, James, six and Inez, four.
Sharing a flashback photo from her appearance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on her Instagram Stories, the Gossip Girl star explained that her outfit for the TV appearance was one she pieced together (a Lanvin shirt and Net-A-Porter dress) because she couldn’t find any clothing samples which fit.
“No one had samples that fit me after giving birth. And so many clothes from stores didn’t fit either. So. Many,” she began.
“It doesn’t send a great message to women when their bodies don’t fit into what brands have to offer. It’s alienating and confusing.
“That body gave me a baby. And was producing that baby’s entire food supply. What a beautiful miracle. But instead of feeling proud, I felt insecure. Simply because I didn’t fit into clothes. How silly is that in retrospect.
She finshed saying: “We all can ask for better from the brands we love.”
Blake says ‘instead of feeling proud’ or her body for giving her a baby she ‘felt insecure’.
Sharing a screen grab of a quote from Blake’s post on her own Instagram Stories, Sophie wrote: “Yes @BlakeLively one more time for the people in the back!!!” and captioned the image: “Not a Queen, a Khaleesi.”
Games of Thrones star, Sophie Turner praises Blake for her honesty.
When it comes to fashion, Blake knows how to pull together a fabulous outfit. In a 2019 interview, the actress revealed she prefers to dress herself rather than use a stylist.
“For me, fashion is a form of self-expression. It also really takes me out of my comfort zone. One of the reasons I’m an actor is that i’m naturally very shy, so it’s liberating to dress up and pretend to be someone else,” she said.
“The only way that I feel comfortable doing red carpets and interviews is when I adopt the same thing that I do when I’m acting, which is to play a character.
“So when I’m going to a premiere, I think, who is that character? And I step into that. I still get knots in my stomach before red carpert. You just want to represent yourself properly, so that’s why I chose to style myself.”
