Actress Hilary Duff Wins Cybersmiler Of The Month Award For August

With so much pressure on people to feel the need to 'look their best' on social media, it has never been more important for influencers and celebrities to talk about their own problems with self-image and body confidence. If you are affected by anything within this article, follow the links to our various help and support services.

It’s time to award yet another inspirational person with the much sought after Cybersmiler of the Month Award for improving the lives of others – and this month’s winner has certainly been doing that!

Following in the footsteps of previous winners of the award such as Drake, Kylian Mbappe and singer Christina Aguilera; we are delighted to announce that this month’s winner is none other than actress Hilary Duff.

Recently, Hilary opened up about her personal struggles with body image and her relationship with food throughout her teenage years, some of which she faced due to growing up in the public eye.

“I struggled a little bit when I was 18 or 19 with food and wanting to fit into this ‘Image’ of a girl who is not me but that was such a long time ago. Honestly, I feel like I’m in the same five-to-ten-pound struggle as most other women out there. Sometimes I’m crushing it and feeling great and other times, I’m like; ugh.”

The actress then went on to explain about why fitness is such an important part of her life. She explained how as well as the physical benefits of exercise, it’s also great for her mental health “I work out a lot. Obviously I want to be fit but I’m 5’2” and I’m definitely not a ‘skinny girl.’ I’m a healthy girl. I always feel really empowered by what my body can do.”

By speaking so openly about her own issues with body confidence, Hilary has helped to inspire people to feel more body positive and empowered by what their own bodies can do.

“I’m the only one that can control my relationship with myself and I want to constantly be in control of it, you know? Whatever it is.”
