Here's a helpful little addition, from a cute (but predictably rake-thin) starlet named Hayden Panettiere:
The relevant bit:
In fact, Hayden seems to have few of the concerns that plague most teenagers. Of Hollywood's preoccupation with weight, she says, "I've never understood that. Beauty is whatever you feel comfortable with. Curves are insanely beautiful. Look at old statues – they are very voluptuous."
...Beauty doesn't have to be size zero. That comes from runway models. People have called me f**! [She appears to be barely a UK size 6.]
"They'll always say something nasty. What it boils down to is how you feel about yourself. The sooner you accept yourself, the better off and happier you'll be.
"I'm happy with the way I look," she continues. "I love eating. It's just sad that some girls feel they have to starve themselves and be skinny.
It's a thought that all curvy girls should keep in a mind, in a world that's being poisoned by the mass media's rampant weight hysteria and size-prejudice.

(and beautiful) young actress saying the same words...
