Lea DeLaria strips for body confidence
Actress Lea DeLaria recently filmed a video of herself taking off all her clothes for Style Like U.
The video was aimed at promoting body confidence and positive body image among women, and sees a fully-dressed DeLaria strip.
“I am a proud fat woman, period,” the 57-year-old says. “We live in a fat-ist society that expects, especially of women, certain things, especially around their weight and it’s bulls–t. I would say I read Fat as a Feminist Issue, halfway through I got bored and ate it.”
“It freaks me when I am standing next to a woman who is maybe 100 pounds soaking wet, talking about how fat she is,” DeLaria continues. “Men can weight any f–king weight they want. The can be any weight they want. No one gives them s–t about it.”
“Obesity in an issue. I get it, it’s a problem. It causes a lot of things that people need to be aware of, right? But the flip coin of that is it’s mostly genetics and there’s nothing wrong with it. It’s just that simple. Fat is not ugly. In fact, it’s quite beautiful,” DeLaria added.
“When my fiancée looks at me with this look in her eye and I can see that she is completely in love with me, it makes me feel really handsome…almost beautiful,” DeLaria gushed. “I love me. Look at this. What’s not to love?”
The Orange Is The New Black star is engaged to longtime partner, Chelsea Fairless.
