Brie Larson is the real MVP!
While presenting the Best Actor award to Casey Affleck at the Oscars Sunday, the actress very pointedly didn't clap for the actor as he took to the stage to accept his award.
And people definitely noticed!
"I think she's promoting body positivity. You know, young girls being able to express that they don't have a stick-thin body – they're curvy."
Well said! Miz Winter went on to commend Kanye West's wife for being so comfortable in her own skin and for setting that precedent as an example for girls of ALL body types.
"Stick-thin bodies are amazing, you know, those girls are amazing too but I think that everybody's body would be celebrated no matter what it is and I think that it's great that she's so comfortable with herself and that she's able to post out there what she wants to and post and if she wants to post a nude selfie, she can."
Nonetheless, the up-and-comer went on to call out the industry for their double standards as men are able to post half-naked pics online without being reprimanded. She concluded:
"We're not able to do the exact same thing and I think it's really upsetting to be in an industry where that's happening, so I really decided to stand up for her because I thought it was so ridiculous. If somebody doesn't like the post, they can unfollow them. There's no reason to go on and publicly bash them and I think, you know, she's promoting body positivity instead of being a bad role model."
What do YOU think? Have you, like Ariel, sided with #TeamKim on this matter?
