Emilia Clarke is an inspiration to young women everywhere.
But there's one teen she wishes she could reach out to… a younger version of herself! Back in October, the Game Of Thrones star filmed a message to her 18-year-old self, and Teen Vogue only recently released the moving message!
The gorgeous gal decided to gift teenage Emilia with words of wisdom about all sorts stressful struggles, like crumbling relationships and chasing dreams.
But the English actress also wanted to address her lack of confidence in her physical appearance, and spread a statement about body positivity and curve confidence, saying:
"18-year old Emilia, I'm going to quote this Sunscreen song at you, I know you know it. You are not as fat as you think you are."
That's so touching! The 29-year-old continued to explain to her younger self why all body types are beautiful, adding:
"There are some women who look some way, and there are other women who look another way. Like a whole other way. And the way that the other women look, people love. Because they look like women."
The lovely lady also offered up advice about pursuing her passion, even though it's been a difficult journey and the acting endeavor hadn't quite taken off at that point:
"There are going to be times when someone says, that dream that you've had, your entire life, the moment that someone says that's impossible, it is. I know you didn't get into drama school this time around, but, you will. You have the strength to overcome it."
She also prepped Young Emilia for the powerful pain of heartbreak and breakups:
Willow Smith is racking up the covers!
The latest on her list is the May issue of Teen Vogue, where the 15-year-old shows off wild winged liner and a septum ring juxtaposed by her silky pink top with a large pussy bow!
We love that her fearless style is on full display, not only on the front page, but also throughout her entire spread.
Jaden Smith's younger sis has no trouble holding her own!
But before you ch-ch-check the editorial out in the gallery (above), read on for HIGHlights from the starlet's interview…
Olivia Pope would be impressed!
Speaking on topics ranging from ambitions to parenthood, Washington laid it all out in her video message. Considering K.W. is the star of hit show Scandal and graduated from George Washington University in 1998, it's no shock she gave some AMAZING advice.
The momma's special message began:
"Dear Kerry, I'm talking to you around 18, so this is a time when you're transitioning from high school to college. Lots on your mind, lots to be stressed out about, so here are some of my thoughts from the future: Make sure that your dreams are yours. Make sure that you are not pursuing the dreams that somebody thinks you should have, because dreams take a lot of work and a lot of support, and you'll be more inspired to go after them if they are really, really yours."
What spot-on words! You have to be passionate about your goals to actually make them come true!
Check out the rest of Kerry's vid (below)!
Now that is one gorgeous face!
The actress and musician looks serene and lovely in neutral-toned outfits, and also gives us some insight into her personality.
"My parents didn't become who they are because anything was handed to them, and they didn't raise a child who expected something to be handed to her, either. My mom would have killed me if I'd assumed any kind of privilege. At first I was really adamant about making sure people knew that I was working hard. Things were definitely handed to me a little bit easier, but people were also judging me twice as hard."
Now that she's gotten older, she's more okay with being compared to them:
Amandla Stenberg is ready to open up about her racial and sexual identity.
On Thursday night, the 17-year-old posted a personal video to Tumblr, so she could break down barriers and open up to her fans and followers about who she really is.
The teen — who played Rue in the first Hunger Games movie — said:
"It's a really, really hard thing to be silenced and it's deeply bruising to fight against your identity and to mold yourself into shapes that you just shouldn't in."
The actress admitted that she relates to that struggle, revealing she is bisexual:
"As someone who identifies as a black, bisexual woman, I've been through it and it hurts. And it's awkward and it's uncomfortable."
Could 2016 be the year of not seeing a single Kardashian or Jenner on the cover of a magazine??
Probably not, BUT it was revealed by WWD that people aren't buying their issues!
Compared to the sales of other issues in the same quarter, these glossies are seeing a decline when any member of the reality TV famous clan is on the front. Ouch!
In fact, Cosmo's November issue which featured Kim Kardashian West, Kourtney Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, AND Kris Jenner only sold 436,500 copies, making it one of the mag's worst selling issues of the year.
Similarly, the youngest Jenner's single cover for Cosmo earlier in the year also saw a dip in sales, as did Kim's cover of Glamour!
It hasn't been all bad for the family though, as it's also being reported that Kylie's Teen Vogue cover outsold their average sales by 1,000 copies!
Kimmy's Rolling Stone cover and Khloé's Women's Health issue also did well.
Hmm… We can't imagine magazines are oblivious to this, so it'll be interesting to see what this year has in store!!
What do U think???
