Not everyone in Hollywood is obsessed with being stick-thin. Just ask an array of A-listers.

“I have a butt, I have boobs, and I have a woman’s curves; there is no way I’d see them go to zero,” Jennifer Lopez revealed to ELLE UK magazine in May 2007. “I hate to look in a magazine and see a picture of a girl who looks so thin she looks unhappy and as if she just needs someone to give her a good meal.”

Most recently, the 43-year-old embraced her curves — and flaunted them — at Sunday’s Golden Globes, thanks to a form-fitted, lace-adorned Zuhair Murad gown.

And she’s not the only one opting out of that rail-thin trend.

“I’d rather be a few pounds heavier and enjoy life than be worried all the time,” Drew Barrymore once told ELLE magazine. “There’s no such thing as perfection, and someone else’s definition of it is not good enough for me.”

Even Rihanna admitted to Vogue in March 2011,  “I realized that I actually like my body, even if it’s not perfect according to the book. I just feel sexy. For the first time, I don’t want to get rid of the curves. My body is comfortable, and it’s not unhealthy, so I’m going to rock with it.”

The 24-year-old also shared some motivational words with Celebuzz in December: “You only have one life to live, so don’t care about what anyone else thinks and just love yourself.”

There are many other stars who don’t need to be super-skinny to feel super-sexy — launch the gallery above to find out who!
