Celebrities with cellulite is, of course, nada new. The lumps and bumps that tend to gather around the thigh and bum area affect around 90 per cent of women – so having a famous face is not going to mean that you’re exempt.
But celebrities sharing images of their dimpled skin via their Insta accounts to make a statement about how happy they are in their un-Photoshopped bodies?
That’s pretty dang 2019.
In celebration of the women who’ve done it, from Jessie J to Ashley James, here they are – in all of their ‘zero f**ks given’ glory.
1. Jessie J
Windswept and glancing out to the sea, the British singer let the world know that ‘for those telling me I have cellulite. I know. I own a mirror.’
2. Ashley James

Bottoms up to paradise. 🇲🇻✌🏼 Let me say this hopefully only once. What you perceive as someone's flaws is a reflection of you and your own insecurities. Beauty is subjective – some of us strive to be bigger, smaller, be more toned, etc. It's really down to us as individuals. What's important is our own confidence and happiness and this is a journey for each and everyone of us. ❤️ I am the happiest I've ever been living my life. I'm not depriving myself of food and drink, and I accept my ever-changing body as it gets older and wiser. I also don't see exercise as a chore, or food and drink as indulging. But, I've been injured recently so haven't been able to live an active lifestyle (although my cellulite doesn't disappear with exercise). 💪🏼 I have always tried to be "real" online, but I used to point out my insecurities. I realised in doing so, it not only meant I was focussing on my flaws and weaknesses, but it was potentially making others feel worse about themselves. For example, if I point out my tiny spot and say I feel hideous, how would it make someone feel with worse skin than me? Plus, why focus on the negatives about ourselves? So, when I post this photo on my stories and get INNUNDATED with trolls, it annoys me. Firstly, nearly every woman has cellulite, regardless of our size or exercise regime. It's sexy. It's not to be shamed. And secondly, there are a lot of people (men and women) who are dealing with eating problems, and words are VERY powerful. My ex's mum once said to me: "Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will break my heart", and it's stuck with me. ❤️ If you feel a certain type of way about my arse, screenshot it and send it to your friends, prick it on your voodoo doll, but just know that it's your own negative vision, and i don't want to see it on my comments or DM's. I'm not posting this for likes or attention, I'm posting this because I want to encourage the trolls who chose to follow me to think twice about their output online. You might just end up saying this to the wrong person. And in the words of Alan Partridge: "Frankly my dear, I don't riverdance". 🍑✌️ #paradise #maldives #girlswhotravel #noretouching
Former Made in Chelsea star Ashley stopped for some real talk last week, as she shared a photo of herself on holiday in the Maldives.
‘I am the happiest I’ve ever been living my life,’ she wrote in the caption. ‘I’m not depriving myself of food and drink, and I accept my ever-changing body as it gets older and wiser.’
3. Kelly Rowland
Destiny’s Child singer Kelly can do whatever she wants, because she was in Destiny’s Child and those are the rules of life.
We especially love this shot of the 38-year-old in a paint brush-style colourful one piece.

I am posting this on behalf of young girls, women, and mothers of all ages. I'm enjoying a vacation with my son after a long season of shooting and being away from him for weeks at a time over those months. Since websites and magazines love to share 'celeb flaws' – well I have them! My body has given me the greatest gift of my life: Luca, 5 years ago. I'm turning 30 in September and my body is healthy and gets me where I need to go. Ladies, lets be proud of what we've got and stop wasting precious time in the day wishing we were different, better, and unflawed. You guys (you know who you are!) already know how to ruin a good time, and now you are body shamers as well. #kissmyass 😛✌🏻
Sharing another beach image, the American actress typed out a bold message to her 11M+ Insta followers.
‘Since websites and magazines love to share ‘celeb flaws’ – well I have them! My body has given me the greatest gift of my life: Luca, 5 years ago. I’m turning 30 in September and my body is healthy and gets me where I need to go,’ she wrote in 2017.
5. Ashley Graham
Model Ashley Graham has been on a mission to open up the fashion industry to women beyond a narrow definition of beauty for years – but her candid snaps are always welcome.
Like she says: ‘I’m not ashamed of a few lumps, bumps or cellulite.. and you shouldn’t be either.’
6. Chrissy Teigen
Chrissy’s sharing knows no bounds, which is why the Internet can’t get enough of the model, presenter and cookbook author. When it comes to embracing the whole her – ‘stretchies’ included – she’s got it nailed.
7. Iskra Lawrence

Smiling because ⚡️celluLIT⚡️ Smiling because Keratosis pilaris is killing it Smiling because regardless of any perfected beauty ideal, I’m on a beach, feeling the sand in my toes and the smell of the ocean and that’s all that matters. Insecurities shouldn’t let you limit your life experiences and happiness. These are the bodies God made for us, don’t let perfection be the thief of joy. You were always good enough and deserve to live life on your terms. I know you heard it a gazillion times from me but #everyBODYisabikinibody this just happens to be mine but don’t compare it to yours because yours is perfectly imperfect too🔥😏❤️ . . 👙 @aerie #aeriereal #noretouch #selflove #bodyconfidence #neda #everyBODYisbeautiful #REAL
UK model Iskra has always been open about how she celebrates her body as it is, and this shot from February is no exception.
Like she says, ‘celluLIT.’
8. Amy Schumer
As well as sharing her cellulite in this snap, funny woman Amy also let the world know that she ‘does not regret’ getting her lower back tattoo at 18. Amy, we’ve all been there.
