These Celebrities Are Thicc Now, And Honestly, We’re Not Mad About It

If we’ve learned anything over the past few decades, it’s that body types come in and out of style. Sometimes it’s cool to be super skinny, sometimes it’s cool to be thicc. Right now, we’re in the “it’s cool to be thicc” era, and honestly, I’m all for it.

Yeah, it means people are doing more squats, but squats are good for you. It also means that we get to eat more pizza. Keep reading to see some super famous celebs who went from thin to thicc in recent years. You’ve never seen Jennifer Love Hewitt look like this.

Jessica Simpson’s weight has been all over the map, but it seems like she found her perfect balance between thin and thicc. It’s true that she is pregnant at the moment, so that’s definitely contributing to her fuller figure.

I think we can all agree that the floral maxi dress she’s wearing is doing all kinds of good things for her body. This girl knows how to dress her curves.

Raven Symone

Raven Symone never was a super skinny girl. I mean, way back in the day when she was on The Cosby Show she was pretty small, but also she was a literal child.

She was pretty thicc when she was staring on her own Disney Chanel show, That’s So Raven. It seems like our girl has got even thicker in recent years. She is owning her new body, and I cannot say enough good things about her hairstyle.

Hillary Duff burst onto the scene as a somewhat thicc girl on her hit Disney Chanel show, Lizzie McGuire. After the show ended, Hillary tried becoming a pop star. Apparently, becoming a pop star involves losing a bunch of weight.

Hillary got pretty skinny for a while there, but now she’s an adult and she just gave birth to her second child, so she’s back in the thicc club. I’m not mad about it.

Eva Longoria

Another celeb who had a baby recently is Eva Longoria. Eva has a small frame, so even a few extra pounds makes her look thiccer than normal. I’m a little bit confused about her peplum in this photo, but that dress definitely looks amazing on her. I’m loving the head to toe gold look.

Eva Longoria always slays on the red carpet. She may go back to her pre-baby weight eventually, but for now, the curves are really working for her.

Rihanna’s body is a riddle wrapped in an enigma. Sometimes she looks super slim, sometimes she looks thicc, it all depends on… the weather I guess? This woman is a chameleon who changes shape whenever she feels like it.

She always looks good though. Have you ever seen a picture of Rihanna not looking good? I didn’t think so. Here’s another thicc lady who’s rocking head to toe gold. Rihanna always shines bright like a diamond.

Tyra Banks

Tyra Banks started her career as a Victoria’s Secret model, which means that she’s always had curves, but she also used to be much smaller. Victoria’s Secret models have a very specific body shape. When the directors of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show were asked if they’d ever include plus-size models in their show, they basically said that it wasn’t going to happen.

Well, that’s their loss. Tyra looks amazing, and so do all the plus size models in the industry.

Demi Lovato

Demi has battled with body image for most of her career. In her documentary, she spoke about never feeling good enough or skinny enough to be in the public eye. She also spoke about overcoming her drug addiction.

Demi has definitely been looking thicker in recent years, which hopefully means that she’s learned to be okay with her body at any size. We’re all okay with it, so she should be too.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has been pretty slim for most of her career. From the time she released her first single when she was just fifteen years old, she’s been a tall and skinny lady. In recent years, Taylor’s been sporting a slightly thicker figure.

She’s still slim, but she’s just not as slim as she used to be. I have to say, that extra ten or fifteen pounds really do look good on her.

Amy Schumer

When Amy Schumer appeared on Last Comic Standing, the reality show that launched her into superstardom, she was a lot smaller than she is now. She wasn’t exactly skinny for a celebrity, but she was certainly slim by regular people’s standards.

Amy gained some weight after her movie Trainwreck, but she embraced her new figure and even made a movie about body positivity. Amy’s positive attitude in the face of criticism is inspiring. Plus she’s super funny.

Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson started steadily gaining weight after winning American Idol. She had some babies, which definitely contributed to her new fuller figure. At one point, Kelly thought that she had gained too much weight, so she made an effort to slim down.

This is what Kelly Clarkson looks like now. Not too big, not too small, just the right amount of thicc. We’re glad that Kelly had the courage to "breakaway" from Hollywood’s unrealistic body standards.

Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera is a short woman. When she first started her career in the 1990s, the had a tiny waist and almost no curves. People were amazed that such a big voice could come out of such a tiny body.

Now that Christina is older, her body has become fuller and curvier. We think that Christina is really making this body work for her. She looks like some kind of super talented pinup girl.

Britney Spears

Britney Spears has always had a bangin’ body. She’s been in the public eye since she was an actual child, so obviously her body has changed a lot between then and now.

We think that Britney looks like a full-blown adult now. If she was not a girl and not yet a woman before, she’s definitely a woman now. Can she even sing that song anymore? Britney is all grown up and she’s still slaying on stage.

Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore is another star who started her career when she was very young. Growing up in the public eye is no easy task. Drew had her ups and downs over the years, but ultimately, she became a composed, successful, and healthy young woman. Now she’s a mother and she has her own makeup line.

She’s a little curvier than she used to be, but she always looks like she’s glowing. We think the curves look great on her.

Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner grew a whole person in her body and she still looks exactly the same as she did before she got pregnant. She had gorgeous curves before, and she’s still rocking those gorgeous curves now.

Kylie’s body shape is totally unique and iconically her. Nobody expected her to be this thicc when she was just a little kid on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Let’s just say that we’re pleasantly surprised.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Leo DiCaprio is the first man to grace our thicc list. Back in the day, Leonardo used to be super skinny. He was basically a kid when he starred in Titanic. Now he’s a full grown man and his body is definitely bigger than it used to be.

We like a man with a little more substance if you know what I mean. Leo is looking better than ever. Age really does look good on him.

Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling never thought that she’d be in front of the camera when she first started working as a writer for The Office. Her body type isn’t exactly typical in Hollywood, but Mindy showed the haters that smaller doesn’t necessarily mean better.

Mindy looks fabulous just the way she is, plus she’s also super funny and smart and talented, so there’s that. Don’t we all want to be Mindy Kaling when we grow up?

Jennifer Love Hewitt

Jennifer Love Hewitt was the smallest of ladies back in the ’90s. She was so small you could have picked her up with one finger. Ok, maybe not that small, but she was pretty tiny.

Now Jennifer Love Hewitt looks like a normal human being, you know, with curves. Did you even recognize her in this photo? She looked great before and she looks great now. She’s still small, but now there’s just a little bit more to love.

Mariah Carey

When Mariah Carey started her career, she was quite a small person. Her voice was big though, and that’s what really matters. Now she’s a bit bigger, and her voice might be a little bit bigger too, but we love her just the way she is.

Yeah, you could say she’s a diva, but I think she just knows her worth. Mariah isn’t shrinking herself down for anybody. Also, she’s the queen of Christmas, so there’s that.

Amber Rose

Amber Rose is an American model who’s probably most famous for dating Kanye West before he married Kim Kardashian. At one point, she was a straight size model who posed for big brands like Louis Vuitton.

Her image has changed a bit since those days and now she’s sporting a rather curvaceous figure. Back in the day, Amber Rose was just another model, but now her alternative look is bringing her serious fame.

Vince Vaughn

Ok, so Vince Vaughn might not be the first person you think of when you hear the word "thicc," but he’s definitely thicker than he used to be. Vince has always been tall, but now he’s tall and he has a dad bod, which is apparently in right now

Everybody is seriously into dad bods, and Vince Vaughn has one, so he’s hot now. I guess he’s always been hot, but now it’s just on a different level.

Honestly, Beyoncé can do no wrong. She was hot when she was slim and she’s hot now that she’s thicc. She’s just always going to be the hottest and coolest girl in the room simultaneously, which sounds like it should be impossible, but it’s not because it’s Beyoncé.

It’s one thing to have curves, but it’s another thing to completely own your curves. Just look at the way she struts on stage. She knows what’s up.

Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson was once one of the fittest athletes in the world. He’s always been thicc, but at one point in his life, he was like 100% muscle. Now, less of his body is pure muscle and he’s a bit squishier in the middle.

Tyson seems to be pretty okay with his new body. He looks excellent in that royal blue suit. Now if we could only do something about that face tattoo.

Brendan Fraser

Um, does anybody know what happened to Brendan Fraser? He somehow went from action star to… a thicker action star… I mean, he still looks good, he just looks very very different.

Maybe he’ll get back in the game one day, but for now, he seems to be embracing his larger self. I guess he can play different sorts of characters now. Did you see him in The Affair? That was pretty spooky.

Leah Remini

When Leah Remini was on King of Queens, she was noticeably smaller than she is now. Granted, that was a long time ago. King of Queens first started airing in 1998. At that time, Leah Remini was just 27 years old.

This actress has definitely been through a lot, and she’s doing some pretty great things for the anti-Scientology movement. Also, she won an Emmy, so that’s pretty cool. She definitely deserves one after 21 years on television.

Kim Kardashian

While fabulous women of color made being thicc a thing, it was Kim Kardashian who took that thing and ran with it. J-Lo may have had the big butt first, but Kim made big butts desirable.

Somehow, everything the Kardashians touch turns to gold. Remember when Kim broke the internet? If she has something, everyone else wants it. She has a thicc little bod, so thicc bodies are in style right now. That’s just how the world works.

Jennifer Aniston

In the 1990s, thicc bodies weren’t as sought after as they are today. People aspired to have tiny waists and small hips like all of the ladies on Friends. Jenifer Aniston was a style icon back in the day. Everyone wanted the iconic Rachel haircut, and everyone wanted her slim body.

Now that Jen is older, her body has gotten a bit thicker, but I think that’s okay with her. We’re not in the ’90s anymore.

Serena Williams

Serena Williams is an elite athlete and one of the greatest tennis players in the world. When she first started playing the sport, she was a lot smaller than she is now. This is what a person who’s spent nearly two decades slaying at her sport looks like.

I think Serena looks better than ever. She’s got confidence for days, so all the haters can just turn around and walk right out of the stadium.

Ariel Winter

Ariel started appearing on Modern Family when she was just 10 years old. She plays Alex Dunphy, the middle child of Claire and Phil Dunphy. Ariel literally grew up before our eyes.

We watched Ariel (and her character, Alex) grow from a lanky preteen into a curvy 20-year-old. Ariel is definitely rocking her curves. Look at that little black dress. It’s doing all the right things for her body.

Kelly Rowland

Once upon a time all of the members of Destiny’s Child were pretty skinny. Remember the “Bootylicious” music video? None of the singers were quite as “bootylicious” then as they are now.

Kelly Rowland may not be as thicc as Beyoncé at the moment, but it really isn’t fair to compare anybody to Beyoncé. She is in a class of her own. Kelly Rowland looks fit and amazing. Those leggings are doing great things for her legs.

Alicia Keyes

Alicia Keyes is looking better than ever nowadays. She went from a lanky twenty-something to an all natural earth mama. Alicia is literally glowing, and she’s never looked better than she does right now.

I’m so glad that we got to watch Alicia Keyes as a coach on The Voice. We got to see her be chill and nurturing and positive. Her personality is everything I hoped it would be. One thing is for sure— this girl is on fire.
