Just because people look like they have it all together -- and are seemingly the embodiment of human perfection -- doesn't mean it's true. So many people struggle with body image and loving all of who they are, regardless of size, shape, and any other physical marker. Chrissy Teigen admits she struggles with body insecurities. And because she's a model, many feel the need to throw jabs ... because "perfect" people obviously don't have issues and should just shut up (eye roll).

  • The 31-year-old recently attended the Beautycon Festival in LA, where she revealed she sometimes struggles with body positivity.

  • "There have been times I've cried to John, where I felt like I would never have 'that' body," she told the audience.

    The Lip Sync Battle cohost explained:

    "Everyone has a butt now and curves and a little waist and that's not me ... I'm jealous of those bodies and I want that, but I also feel like I really want to be cool with my body because of people like you guys ... That's why I don't post many makeup selfies, because I don't feel anyone knows what a real face looks like anymore and it kills me that we have to completely wash a face or body out for it to get likes."

    "As a woman, you bashing a woman for her looks on an article where she talks about how she is insecure about her body is repugnant," another commentor scolded. 

  • Because, you know, body-shaming someone who admits she struggles with loving her body at times is the embodiment of being a good person.

  • The world is full of SO many just *lovely* people, isn't it?

  • Luckily, there are people in Chrissy's corner who simply aren't here for shaming of any and all kind.

  • Who are we to delegitimize someone else's journey because *we* feel that person should be a statue of perfection?

    Body positivity isn't a final destination you reach without moments in your life when you feel less-than. So the next time you want to throw stones at someone who you think shouldn't have body issues, kindly check your prejudice at the door.
