  •  Jameela Jamil has a neutral body image.
  • She is still too  body dysmorphic to practice body positivity.
  • She believes Lizzo is someone to look up to as far as loving one's body goes.

The ‘Legendary’ star is an advocate for body neutrality — she doesn’t love or hate the way she looks — as she says she can’t do body positivity because she’s still too body dysmorphic after years of being held by her image.

“I can’t do body positivity because it still takes up too much of my time! Stand here in front of a mirror and be like, ‘I love thighs! I love my cellulite!’ I’m still too body dysmorphic to be able to that, so instead, I just don’t talk about it. I’m neutral! I don’t love my body, I don’t hate my body,” Jameela told E! News.

Jameela wants to reach a point where she “loves” her body figure, and said people should all strive to be more like singer Lizzo, who is known for being passionate about her body.

“You know, Lizzo loves her body and I think that, that’s amazing. She told me in an interview before that there was a time where she didn’t love her body,” she adds.
