6 Celeb Moms Who Could Use a Body Image Boost

5

Jessica Alba can't act, and she's overhyped. Two years after giving birth to daughter Honor Marie, she's provided an additional reason for a good long eye-roll: She recently told the U.K. version of GQ magazine:

"My breasts are saggy, my hips are bigger, but I love it."

Okay. So why then does she follow that quote up by saying, "Every actress out there is more beautiful than me. All better looking than me"?

Ugh! While she does claim that she's less self-conscious since giving birth, it still seems to me that the cover girl could use a post-baby body image boost.

Here, five more celeb mamas who also need a reality check when it comes to beauty ...

Kendra Wilkinson

Hef's ex gave birth to baby Hank and told US Weekly, "I love my legs, and I love my butt, but everything else I hate." Then she pledged to have liposuction after carrying a second child. Now, I know Kendra is basically famous for her body and makes a living with her looks. But come on now, she hates most of her body? Gotta give the girl credit for being blunt, but those are some strong words. Centerfolds aside, it seems like the former Bunny could stand to love herself for who she is a bit more.

Jennifer Lopez

After giving birth to twins Max and Emme, a source spilled that the new Idol judge thinks she's "lost her figure forever ... thinks her thighs look terrible ... she has major cellulite." Her solution? Going days without eating. No, please, if this is true -- an intervention is in order. You can't be mom and a super-diva and choose the next American Idol without a.) eating and b.) knowing that you're all that.

Salma Hayek

Oh, no! Mama of daughter Valentina, who is almost 3, declined a "Best Body" award that she was presented from Fitness magazine. "I actually don't have a good body," she said. "But if everybody thinks so, I guess it means I'm a good actress." I absolutely love that Salma is petite with amazing curves. Maybe she should take a tip from her own TV show, Ugly Betty, and realize that "good bodies" come in all different shapes and sizes.

Angelina Jolie

Post-birth of the twins Vivienne and Knox, a source revealed of Angie, "The biggest issues for her are her breasts -- which she says are smaller and not as firm as they were before she breastfed three children -- and her stomach, which she's described as 'saggy.' She's frustrated because no matter how much exercise she does, there's still some skin and wrinkles." Isn't this woman supposed to be a humanitarian? Face it, Angie, you're human, too! And "saggy" stomach or not, you're one of the most gorgeous humans around.

Lily Allen

This songbird and mama-to-be once blogged, "I used to pride myself on being strong-minded and not being some stupid girl obsessed with the way I look. I felt like it didn't matter if I was a bit chubby cause, I'm not a model, I'm a singer ... I'm afraid I am not strong and have fallen victim to the evil machine ... I have spent the past hour researching gastric bypass surgery and laser liposuction." Here's to hoping that Lily has learned to love her body more since then, especially since she's expecting her first child sometime next year.

How did you boost your body image post-baby?

Salma Hayek looks great! I think she's a little crazy if she doesn't agree.

I got a breast augmentation. HAHAHA. After that the saggy belly skin that will never be the same and the stretch marks on my hips and the cellulite hanging around here or there doesn't seem to matter much anymore. I HATED the way my breasts looked after breast feeding. I didn't hate myself, or being a mother just my breasts. Having them done completely upped my entire body image and made the rest of my motherhood marks insignificant.

Call me cynical, but how many of these women really mean this, and how many are saying it because they know that it will up the publicity and keep their name in the public eye?  (I'm looking at Jessica Alba and JLo, in particular)

um J Lo's body post-pregnancy actually looks amazing (did you see her in The Backup Plan???). And Angelina Jolie seriously needs to shutup. You can see her veins thru her skin that's how damn skinny she is - it's nasty. Eat something woman!!!
