Sophia Bush Embraces Her Body: 'I'm Not Some Rail-Thin, 6-Foot-Tall Runway Model'

Sophia Bush wears a short white dress while sitting down for an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (April 30) in New York City.

The 31-year-old actress was seen earlier that day rocking a pink dress and also a white top and black pants the day before.

Sophia made an appearance on The Today Show that morning to chat about her favorite charity, I Am That Girl, and embracing her own body.

“I’ve spent so much time talking to women about, ‘Hey, I may be on TV and I may be photographed for magazines, but I don’t think I’m perfect. I don’t wake up in the morning and look in the mirror and go, ‘Hey, I’m amazing!’ That’s not how it is,” Sophia said. “I’m a woman and it’s a struggle for all of us.”

“And it took me until this point in my life at 31 to say, ‘Hey, yeah I’m going to embrace my body and own it for me, not anyone else. And I’m curvy. I’m not some rail-thin, 6-foot-tall runway model who was just born that way. I was born like this. And that’s A-OK.’ And the conversations that have sort of come out of that, the conversations about feeling empowered in our skin rather than comparing ourselves to other women have been a really great byproduct actually of that whole shoot,” Sophia added.

FYI: Sophia is wearing a Robert Rodriguez dress and Jacob & Co. jewelry on Fallon. She is wearing Sophia Webster shoes and Jade & Jasper earrings with her pink dress. She is wearing a J Brand top and pants, an Edie Parker clutch, a Khai Khai Jewelry ring and an AS29 ring and cuff for her third look.

    Rail thin or not. She is the best! Here’s to many successful years ahead….

  • maria

    LOL!she isnt curvy..she is healthy & looks really good but she’s not curvy.

  • Meg

    @maria: Curvy isn’t overweight, it’s that your body curves out at your breasts, curves in for your waist, and curves out for your hips with shapely legs. She isn’t big breasted, but she isn’t flat. She has a trim waist and curvy hips. She’s not athletically built nor is she pear shaped, obese or boy shaped. She would definitely fall into the curvy department before anything else..

  • Ricky

    Sophia, I just want you to know that like you, I’d embrace your body too.

  • tina

    She is NOT curvy AT ALL. People seriously need to learn what curvy means. She is a very attractive girl and has a gorgeous face and enviable bone structure but her body shape is rectangular. She has a wide, rectangular midsection and not much of a curve to her hips. The “curvy” body shape refers to the women who have a noticeable curve from the waist to the hips and a defined waistline. Sophia Bush has what would be referred to as an athletic body shape. Still gorgeous though. I just want people to stop interchanging different body types as “curvy”

  • James

  • Gina

    0 is not a size. :)

  • T

    I am sooooo tired of celebrities that are a size 4/6 go on and on that they are not a size zero. First off it’s been established that size zero is not in or considered that attractive. Men have been vocal that it is it a good look and they prefer more “weight” so for crying out loud your perfect size 4 body is not causing you life problems. Be a freakin size 20 and them come out saying you’re still proud. Ugh get over yourself!!!

  • Caro

    I get what your saying but people call Sophia thick and fat a lot especially on this site. Like Sophia said don’t compete with other women be supportive. Everyone has feelings and gets hurt when they are criticized.

  • a fan

    Sophia bush is one of the most gorgeous women I have evwe seen, celebrity or not. Her soul and personality are what truly makes her beautiful though. She’s amazing and cares so much for others and helping in anyway possible. I supported her through oth and would damn well support her if she decided to be on Elmo. I love her.

  • Krystal

    The people who may call her “fat” on this site are the ones who hate the fact that out of the entire OTH cast, Sophia is the only one people care about. Calling her things that are untrue apparently helps them sleep better at night.
    Fact is, Sophia Bush is a pure BEAUTY from head to toes.

  • rosa

    pees me off how people do comment she is thick… like far out she’s far from thick they are comparing her to people that barley eat to stay paper thin. Here we have a stunning lady that doesn’t feel she needs to starve herself to continue on our screens.
    Sophia you are amazing and have so many talents and wonderful giving person. I love when you dress more sexy cause that’s what you are.

  • mila

    I bet she coped heaps from Chads girlfriend after she left him, the one that lived at Wilmington, she was a high school student and a size minus zero.
    Anyway like Soph said be happy in your own skin

  • myloveislikewhoa


    She’s curvy.

    rectangular? lol you are such a follower, you read some stupid body labels made by someone dumber than you and now you think you’re an expert in shapes.
    She’s curvy, deal with it.

    Most women are curvy and men are more square, that’s nature.
    There is absolutely nothing rectangular about sophia.

  • Maya

    Sophia Bush is so damnn beautiful!!!!!

  • Floritsa Gomez

    She is perfect
