Earlier this week, Gayle King took to her Instagram to flaunt her beach body in Mexico, and fans were thrilled by her show of authenticity, filter-free and all. Page Six reported that the star posted a picture of herself along with the caption, “celebration of cellulite cottage cheese thighs.”
The 64-year-old, on Monday, took to her Instagram to show off her body and added, “happy to report no photoshopping allowed!” Ashley Graham, who is currently pregnant with her first baby was just one celebrity to take to the comment section to praise her bravery.
This wouldn’t be the first time the television show icon showed off her body. During an episode of Ashley’s podcast, Pretty Big Deal, King dished on the time she posed naked for her boyfriend when she was in college. Gayle explained that he had photos of her naked and the negatives were never published.
Gayle added, “I got all the negatives. I know that they will never see the light of day.” In the past 3-4 years, Hollywood celebrities, models, and other entertainment industry professionals have been advocating body positivity.
It’s a new movement where women take to their social media accounts to post real, unfiltered, and authentic photos of themselves, in an age where Photoshop and other enhancement software is the norm. One of the biggest advocates for this initiative is Jameela Jamil, who is very outspoken in her support of the idea.
In fact, her statements have even caused her problems among some of the most famous and successful celebrities out there, including the Kar-Jenner clan. Previously, Jameela took Khloe Kardashian to task for supposedly marketing products that aren’t FDA-approved.
Moreover, this past month in November, Jameela also criticized the rapper, CupcakKe for posting a picture of herself along with a caption stating she had dropped water weight through an unorthodox method of shaving pounds.
Jameela said on her social media photo that she should consider taking it down because it promoted a particular style of weight management that most people wouldn’t be able to pull off safely, especially without access to proper medical supervision.
