In a recent interview with Seventeen magazine, actress Emma Stone has spoken out about how women need to change their negative views on their bodies.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star said that she recognises how challenging it is for girls and women to feel good about their bodies and that "no matter how things look from the outside, we can all be super critical of ourselves and of our image in the mirror."

In the same interview, Emma - 25 - went on to address the fact that a lot of press attention focuses on her weight and how she apparently looks too slim.

"I've seen articles or comments that have addressed my weight, or 'caving to pressure to be thin.' Keeping weight on is a struggle for me— especially when I'm under stress, and especially as I've gotten older. That's the way my genes have decided to go, and things will change as time goes on, as does everything."

She also added that she hopes women can start being kinder to themselves, "so that we can be kinder to each other".

Finally, she said that women need to "stop shaming ourselves and other people for things we don't know the full story on — whether someone is too fat, too skinny, too short, too tall, too loud, too quiet, too anything. There's a sense that we're all 'too' something, and we're all not enough... I hope we can be supportive of each other and try to really have each other's backs, especially when we don't know the whole story."

Amen to all of that.
