If there’s one thing we could all do with, it’s more confidence. It’s REALLY shitty to think that for many of us, how we look on the outside really sets the tone for how we feel about ourselves as a whole – and this sucks big time. I often wonder what doors might open for me if I just ditched the inhibitions that come with feeling self-conscious about my appearance and just grabbed life by the balls.
Amy Schumer’s new flick, I Feel Pretty, nails this concept in the most hilarious way. Amy plays Renee, a woman who struggles with body image issues and how she perceives her looks negatively effect her life. After a nasty knock to the head during a SoulCycle class, Renee looks in the mirror and sees herself as a ‘perfect’ looking supermodel – even though to the outside world, she still looks exactly the same. Just from feeling totally fab in her skin, Renee’s confidence sky rockets and her life begins to change – proving that it’s how we feel about OURSELVES that makes the biggest impact of all.
I Feel Pretty opens on July 28, but you can check out the trailer below…
