Boobs. We love 'em, we hate 'em - but they're undeniably awesome. They're a constant source of joy to men and women everywhere and they can be painfully inconvenient sometimes too. We want them bigger, sometimes smaller, and every now and then, they're just our very best friends.
And just like us regular gals, with regular boobs, celebs also have all kinds of things to say about their celeb chesticles. Read on!
"I wish I had smaller boobs every day of my life as I would love to wear spaghetti tops braless or go for the smallest bikini design… I know I say I wish I had smaller boobs – and that’s true because at least twice a day I wish that. But the grass is always greener, as they say!"
"I was like 12 and all the other girls in my grade had huge boobs already - and I was puny. I’m tiny still to this day - I’m a 32A. I’m okay with it now and I’ve learned to love my body, but at the time I was like, ‘Oh my gosh! I must have this figure,'"
"So, I went out with my mom and was like, ‘Mommy, I need this bra.’ It was the most padded Victoria's Secret bra I’ve ever seen in my entire life - I could have used it as a mattress! I bought it and wore it to school the next day. All my girlfriends were like, ‘Ariana what are you doing? Take your stupid bra off right now.’ But now I don’t wear anything like that. I’ve grown into my body, and I’m okay with it."
"These babies are great. They are my prizewinners. For a while they were out and about, showing off on Broadway every night, then they came to L.A. and were like, ‘No one else looks like me here!’ They were nervous to make their appearance but feel they've earned their place. So they asked if they could come out, and I was like, ‘All right, you guys.’ They definitely rose to the occasion, so I’m going to continue to give them more opportunities."
"I think people are fascinated with breasts that bounce. They are so used to seeing [fake ones]. People are confused [that mine bounce]! My breasts have a life of their own."
"I have a love-hate relationship with my boobs. At the moment I hate them. I want them smaller. I can't wear the kind of suits that I used to love, the red PVC one I got to wear for the Oops I Did It Again video. I'm tempted to have a breast reduction so I can slink into some amazing stage outfits for my next set of shows. I know they look sexy but sometimes they get in the way."
"I didn’t develop until I was 16, and then suddenly they came in strong! And that was hard for me to deal with at first. I wanted to pretend they weren’t there. I wanted to strap them down. I wanted to wear two sports bras so that you couldn’t tell that I have boobs. I don’t know if it was just time, maturity or talking to my mom and friends, but I realized we have the body we have, and there’s nothing we can do to change it. I need to just accept mine and appreciate it. As soon as I adopted that mentality, I felt a lot more confident."
"I saw a picture of them a couple of days ago from when I was 19, and my boobs were way bigger. They were a D, and now they’re a small C, because I lost weight. There was something so beautiful about the size of them. When I look back, I’m like, ‘Why did I always give myself such a hard time?’ Nobody gave me sh-t about it except me.’ But they do get in the way a lot. Like, I wear a really small, tight sports bra when I go running . . . because they want to smack my chin."
"I lay on my back one night and looked down at my feet, and I prayed to God. I said, 'God, will you please let me have boobs so big that I can't see my feet when I'm lying down?' God answered my prayers. I had no clue they would fall into my armpits eventually."
"Sexy when I was younger always meant boobs, and I've never had boobs in my life, so I always felt that sexy was out of the question for me. I used to really want to be that kind of voluptuous girl, and I've just kind of embraced that I'm not."
"I remember crying in the bathtub. I took a washcloth, made it hot, put it over my chest and prayed, ‘Please don't let them grow any bigger. They're embarrassing me.' I was the first girl in my class to wear a bra. All my friends were superskinny, and that just wasn't my body type. But I watched my mom, who was always comfortable with herself, and she helped me with my outlook."
"I know [my breasts] have opened doors for me, let’s be real. But I so hate when I see Gisele and she is wearing a tiny little tank top with no bra, like, ‘Oh, I just threw this on, I look so cute.’ If I wore that I would look like I was pregnant or a fat stripper."
"Sometimes they make [my boobs] a lot bigger than they actually are. I'm happy with them the size they are, but I'm alright with [Photoshop] unless they make them really droopy."
"I hope I’m not encouraging [boob jobs]. If there’s anything to be learned from me it’s that I’m learning to celebrate what I was born with, even though it’s sometimes been inconvenient. Having larger breasts has made it harder for me to shop throughout the years, but I’ve learnt to love it. It’s so bizarre that people are constantly asking if my breasts are real or fake. They’re so obviously real that anyone who’s ever seen or touched a breast would know."
"I was the youngest in class and all these girls were starting to get them [breasts] and I wasn't getting anything -- I was really scared. I was getting teased a lot because everyone was older and I was the skinny tomboy. I went to a church that had a saint that was supposed to do a lot of miracles. I put my hands in the holy water and went: 'Please Jesus give me some boobs."
We feel ya, ladies. And we also know that universally, whatever your relationship with them, your breasts make life awesome. Cheers to boobs!
