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 sistersā€”especially my older sister Katieā€”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.”
