It is no secret that we live in a society that puts an incredible amount of pressure on celebrities in regards to body image. It is hard to escape the pressure of looking a certain way, of weighing a certain amount. Everywhere you go, in every magazine you open, on every show you watch, you see women who demonstrate an unrealistic standard of what women should look like. There is so much hate in regards to body image in our generation it is sickening. Beauty should not be defined by your weight, but instead, should be defined by the way you live your life and the person you are.
Being in the spotlight can add a lot of stress and pressure to a person's life, which is why a lot of female celebrities are so thin - they are too stressed. This list consists of fifteen women who are all beautiful but who are way too thin. This list is not meant to body shame, or to say that every woman on this list is “anorexic.” Instead, it contains examples of why so many women think they are fat. Yes, calling a woman too thin can be the same as calling a woman too fat. The world is a cruel place filled with judgment and when you are in the public eye, you have to be aware that judgment is going to be passed.
The following women can really afford to eat a burger or six; these are the skinniest celebrities of 2016.
15 Theodora Richards
Theodora Richards is the daughter of one of the most famous musicians of all time, Keith Richards. The Rolling Stones heiress has lived quite an interesting life, something that is expected when you are the daughter of a rock and roll legend. Theodora's father is worth an estimated $340 million, which has allowed her to live a very privileged life. Theodora is 31 years old and living in New York. For a good part of her life she was a model and although she doesn't work as much anymore, she has still maintained an extremely skinny figure. Richards is alarmingly thin. We would love to see this beauty gain a few pounds because she looks like she really needs to. Eat a burger a day Theodora, that should help!
14 Miley Cyrus
Once upon a time, Miley Cyrus was Hannah Montana, a young girl that every other little girl in America looked up to. Now, with Hannah Montana long gone, Miley is just her crazy self. The 23-year-old is worth an estimated $160 million, so we are sure she can afford to eat! Cyrus, in recent years, has lost a large amount of weight, making her look change dramatically. Miley, who has been taking a break from making music, apparently has been in an on-again off-again romance with Liam Hemsworth, one of Hollywood's hottest men. Perhaps that is why she shed so much weight, or maybe it is her excessive partying and lavish lifestyle that is getting the best of her. Whatever it is she is looking thinner than ever, and it is time someone gets some meat back on those bones!
13 Rooney Mara
12 Kiera Knightley
For years, Keira Knightley has been denying allegations that she is anorexic. However, eating disorder or not, there is no other way of describing this actress' body besides being “scary skinny.” The 31-year-old has had an exceptional career for someone so young. Appearing in films like Pride and Prejudice, Love Actually and Pirates of the Caribbean (just to name a few), Knightley has a net worth of over $50 million. Knightley embraces her thin frame and is an advocate for healthy girls who are called anorexic on the regular, which FYI is just as bad as calling a girl fat. When talking about the expectations around her body, Kiera opened up, saying
“I think I always disappoint people because they always expect someone very pretty. Very done. There's so much pressure to be thin, blonde and busty. I'm skinny, but even I couldn't fit into some of the clothes there (in L.A.)! In a funny kind of way, I think you create it yourself. I think it's much better to go with the flow and embrace your body, whatever shape it is, and just be happy.”
11 Demi Moore
10 Sarah Jessica Parker
9 Rachel Zoe
8 Giuliana Rancic
There is no doubt in our minds that Giuliana Rancic had a hard time in the past. The television personality struggled with being diagnosed with breast cancer. Although she has always been thin, Rancic seems to have reached a point where she is thinner than ever. Fans and friends are all fairly alarmed with the way she looks. Three years ago, Rancic was blessed with a child and perhaps it is all the running around she is doing but something has changed and she looks beyond fragile. Rancic, who has a net worth of about $5 million, needs to start taking care of herself better. There comes a time in every woman's life when they “let themselves go.” For most women, that means putting on the pounds but for some, it is seen in extreme weight loss. Rancic is a beautiful woman with a big heart which is why we at TheRichest are hoping we see her gain some weight.
7 Sara Sampaio
Sara Sampaio is a 24-year-old supermodel who is best known for being a Victoria's Secret Angel. She has just begun to make a name for herself with a net worth of $500,000, but we at TheRichest know she is going to make a lot more than that in her lifetime. Sampaio is in the modeling industry, which is without a doubt the most difficult industry to be in, at least in regards to body critique. Recently, Sara struggled with a lot of hate due to her extremely skinny physique. Although we tend to agree that she is way too thin, the messages she was receiving were extremely hurtful and she responded back in a perfect way, saying
"I'm proud of my body and I'm not gonna let any of you bully me just because I'm skinny! Everybody is different, and every metabolism is different! I eat a lot, so next time u decide to tell me to eat a burger remember I probably eat more burgers than you, I've always been skinnier, and probably will always be, I workout, I'm healthy and I'm happy!"
6 Bethenny Frankel
5 Jules Wainstein
For those of you who do not watch Real Housewives of New York City, Jules is this season's newest housewife. The Jewish Asian homemaker is one of the sweetest housewives we have ever seen (so far). This season, due to Jules being on the show, there has been a lot of talk in regards to eating disorders. From the first episode of the new season, the other girls were making comments about not only how thin Jules was but how little she ate. It wasn't until her and Bethenny had lunch that the truth came out. Jules admitted to having struggled with an eating disorder for most of her life, saying "you're never really cured from an eating disorder…but secrets keep you sick. At one point I never thought I would ever be able to have children.”
Luckily for Jules, she was blessed with two beautiful, healthy children. However, her alarmingly thin frame really is past the point of being scary, making her a deserving candidate for this list.
4 Karlie Kloss
3 Angelina Jolie
2 Kendall Jenner
1 Gigi Hadid
Gigi Hadid is a force to be reckoned with in the modeling industry and with a net worth of $4 million, she is not doing so bad for herself. The blonde bombshell began her career and was almost immediately criticized for being “too big” for high fashion. At the time, she stood up for herself with class, intelligence, and dignity and even said “I'm an athletic person. But I love my body because I know what it's been through to be what it is. And honestly, I'm not going to change for someone that is depressed about their life.”
However, recently Gigi has been looking thinner than ever. Recent photos show her rib cage sticking out as she walked on the street fully clothed. Hadid needs to snap back to reality and get back to the weight she was at a year ago. Although we are certain she is under an incredible amount of stress, we are hopeful that she will not let herself get any thinner.
