One celebrity is getting good press, but wishes she wasn’t. Raven Symone showed off her new, slimmer body at the People’s Choice Awards and got a lot of attention. Her diet and weight loss are now a mystery, but her feelings about it aren’t. For more on this interesting story, with more great photos and videos as well, keep reading below.
In the before and after photo you can tell she’s thinner and that she has great fashion sense! Though she does seem happy, she doesn’t like the different attention she is now getting.
Basically the 25 year old actress said that when she was about 35 lbs. heavier she felt more normal and comfortable. She thought she looked great and knew people were looking at the real her. Raven Symone told People magazine:
“I liked it before. Now, you’re just looking at me for the wrong reasons. Before, you were actually looking at me for a real reason.”
I think that is amazing! I mean we all know she is happy with her diet and weight loss, but what a role model for women. She genuinely seemed content with her body image and is now against people focusing on how she is thinner. The star knows she is a little healthier, but that’s all she seems to care about. This lady may not be the most famous person in Hollywood, but I think she needs to join forces with Jessica Simpson and spread the word! The messages these two present are powerful ones and I am sure many people can relate to them.
Other than trying to shy away from her body image press, she is currently working on some music and returning to the ABC Family show “The Great State of Georgia.” We probably love her best for her role in “The Cosby Show,” but she has also had many roles with Disney and ABC Family. Maybe one day she will be a big advocate for women’s health!
Will she continue her diet and weight loss program or will the attention will make her stop? I think she tries to live her life without regard to other people’s opinions of her body, and that’s great. What do you think about the new look of Raven Symone and her thoughts on the press? Enjoy these old and new pictures of her, as well as the video, and then leave me your comments below.
