Emily VanCamp Covers 'Self' October 2012

Emily VanCamp Covers 'Self' October 2012

Emily VanCamp revs up her bike on the cover of Self magazine’s October 2012 issue.

Here’s what the 26-year-old Revenge actress had to share with the mag:

On learning to feel good about yourself: “Women are hard on themselves. I’m trying to stop focusing on my flaws and appreciate what I love about my body. It’s tough — the need to be perfect was drilled into me when I did ballet. But I think people are sick of stick-thin actresses. I mean, it’s not real. People have said to me, ‘Wow, you look so much bigger on TV.’ I can’t let that hurt me. You have to be comfortable enough with yourself to say, ‘Screw off. I like how I look, and I’m not going to starve myself.’”

On picking out an outfit: “If I’m showing a lot of leg, I’ll put on my leather jacket to be more covered up. If you’re not sure, ask your girlfriends. I tried on a red dress recently, and the girls were like, ‘No, you can’t wear that!’ Of course, when I asked some guy friends, they were like, ‘It’s great! You have to wear it!”

On her favorite form of therapy: “The best therapy is surrounding yourself with people who make you laugh. My sisters—especially my older sister Katie—and my close friends and my boyfriend [Revenge co-star Joshua Bowman] make everything seem funny. My ideal day would be hanging out with people I love, swimming, laughing and barbecuing.”
