queen latifah talks about her body

Not everybody is skinny, nor does everybody HAVE to be skinny to be beautiful!

Queen Latifah is gorgeous… even if she sin't hell-bent on losing weight and dieting like other actresses! Plus, at 43, she's just got other things to worry about and to focus on — like living the life she wants to live in whatever way she wants!

Here's what she said about her body in the latest issue of Good Housekeeping magazine:

"I was not born a size 2. I'm not skinny, period. [I embrace it by] accentuating the positive and eliminating as much negative as possible. I think I got to that place by not being happy with the other side—hating your body and criticizing yourself all the time. When I was around 18, I looked in the mirror and said, ‘You're either going to love yourself or hate yourself.' And I decided to love myself. That changed a lot of things. For a lot of the things I've wanted to do in life, I haven't looked typical."

Honestly? We're REALLY glad she isn't typical!

We don't need another cookie-cutter lady in our Hollywood! What we need is more self-empowerment and self-love — just like the kind Queen sounds like she's a pro at generating!

So fab! We love you Queen!
