Ashley Graham’s Advice to Curvy Girls: ‘Take Ownership'

“Extra’s” AJ Calloway recently caught up with Sports Illustrated model Ashley Graham on the streets of NYC, where they chatted about her curves.

When asked about any advice she had for young girls, who are struggling with their figures, she said, “Take ownership over your body. You can’t let anybody tell you what you think about it, what you want to be labeled as, and I’m proud of anybody that takes ownership over their body because I've taken ownership over mine.”

Graham recently starred in DNCE’s “Toothbrush” music video, playing Joe Jonas’ love interest. She shared, "I think it was really important that they put a girl my size in because, you know, in film, you don’t see women my size in a love scene. You don’t see women my size looked as a possible interest.”
