Best Quote Ever #23: Serena Williams On Loving Her Curves

Serena Williams at the 2008 WTA Tour Championships

Bootylicious Serena Williams has recently confided in DuJour on how she failed to see the beauty in her curves. Here is an excerpt:

I wasn’t always confident. I just started feeling comfortable with myself about six or seven years ago. That’s why I tell people that even at 25 or 26, it’s OK if you’re feeling uncomfortable with yourself. I was too. It’s normal. I love who I am, and I encourage other people to love and embrace who they are. But it definitely wasn’t easy—it took me a while.

I grew up with a lot of sisters—I was the youngest, and I was really thick. My sister Venus was so tall and slim, and just being in a society where a lot of people are really thin, it was hard. Especially as an athlete.

No athlete has boobs like me. But I had to learn how to embrace myself and embrace my curves. And that’s something a lot of people can relate to.

Go Serena. You are an Inspiration!

Ciao Bellas xoxo
