Blond beauty Julie Bowen of ABC’s hit show Modern Family wasn’t always as comfortable in her own skin as she is today, constantly feeling the pressures of Hollywood all around her. These pressures include being perfectly fit and perfectly skinny and she used to feel that she just didn’t measure up to the part.
I worked on a soap early on. Women in Hollywood are tiny, but women in soap operas are the tiniest people alive!” says Bowen.
To add to her misconceptions of just how skinny her coworkers actually were, she often wasn’t small enough to fit into any of the available wardrobe sample sizes.
Now Bowen is much more comfortable with herself even though she is a busy mother of three. But, even so, she still has days when she lacks a little self confidence.
There are days when I’m like, ‘Hey, you look pretty good.’ But I work with Sofia Vergara. You can have your very best day, and then you walk in and look at her and you go, ‘Okay, now that’s just superhuman,’” Bowen says.
On those days, she just has to remind herself that it is okay not to look extraordinarily beautiful, that not looking like Sofia Vergara is perfectly alright. Everybody is beautiful in their own way.
The important thing is to stay fit and healthy without comparing your size to Hollywood stars or, in her case, other Hollywood stars.Celebrity Fitness, Julie Bowen, Modern Family
