Rihanna got over her body image issues by getting naked more.

Rihanna, 24, reveals in the latest issue of Women’s Health Magazine, that she hasn’t always felt comfortable in her own skin. How did she get over her fears? Apparently by spending more and more time naked.

On tackling her body issues: “The more I got naked the more comfortable I felt. I just had to face my fear. You always find something wrong, you always find something you’re uncomfortable with, and one thing turns into another and you get embarrassed and self-conscious about it. After a while, it was like, ‘What’s the worst that can happen?’ and I just started being a little more daring with it. It was just knowing my body is the way it is no matter what that helped me, knowing that it is what it is under clothes or outside of clothes. My way probably won’t work for most people.”

On food temptations: “My favourite food right now is microwave butter popcorn. And when I’m in London I’m close to authentic Jamaican food, so I tend to eat that every day.”

Trainer Harley Pasternak on RiRi’s routine: “If you want to work out like Rihanna, train hard and often, but not long. Rihanna is really driven, there’s no need for me to motivate her. She trains for at least 25 minutes at a time, and she loves skater lunges, deadlifts and dumbbell work… Her least favourite exercise is running.”

That’s it – everyone needs to get naked more. That’s the ticket!

Jennifer Love Hewitt: “I don’t want to live a life where I have to dress up for everything. I want to be normal, too.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt looks absolutely stunning in this new photoshoot! The pictures and interview are part of BWatt Magazine’s first issue! The 33-year-old ‘The Client List’ actress opens up about the harsh criticism she faces over her weight, relationship status, career and more.

On being thankful for what she has:

“I am so grateful for everything that I have. I don’t even think that it would be appropriate to talk about ups and downs in my career. Of course there have been ups and downs, but think about all those struggling actors and singers out there who don’t make it? I am very fortunate.”

On being criticized for her weight:

“That is Hollywood too. At first I sat down and cried when I saw all the horrible things people were writing about my weight, but then I decided that I had to be stronger. I realized that if people called me fat, then there would be thousands of teenage girls all around America that would feel even worse than I did. Then I decided not to be picked on.” She insists other girls shouldn’t feel bad about the way they look. “You know, being picked on is part of MY job. It shouldn’t be a part of normal teenage life.”

About living under the spotlight:

“I love the entertainment business. Don’t get me wrong. But for me that business is happening all the time. When I decide to go to the supermarket in my sweats, I know that means there will be pictures of me looking not so good. In the beginning it was annoying me, but now I decided not to care. I don’t want to live a life where I have to dress up for everything. I want to be normal, too,” she says. “If I have just been at the dance studio or at a yoga-class, I will be dressed in sweats. That’s just the way it’s going to be.”

She loves fashion:

“I love fashion. I love dressing up and fashion is kind of like acting. You get to play a certain role. And you can always change. That’s fascinating. I think my favorites are my Prada-dresses. They never go out of style. When I was younger I had a wilder style, but now I’m more comfortable with things that never go out of fashion. The classics,” she explains.

On her love life:

“I’m happy and I’m single! I love being single. I get to decide everything on my own. I won’t say I don’t want a man in my life, but I’m not looking. I’m busy hanging out with my friends, going out, going to concerts and enjoying all that L.A. has to offer. I think I would even be a single mom. I know it would be harder, but I’m definitely not ruling that out.”

I think she looks amazing! She comes across really well in interviews, also. I think I like her a little more!
