“Some nights I just didn’t even want to go on stage because I couldn’t find an outfit I looked good in,” Amy said at a Goodwill of California event.

But Leesa showed Amy “how to dress and feel good,” adding in that she even helped her little sister Kim shop.

“To see the person I care the most about being given those tools was just really moving for me and I just wanted to give it to every woman,” she tearfully explained.

In order to help other women who are struggling with body image issues, Amy is teaming up with GoodWill to make sure everyone is able to get dressed with confidence, especially when looking for a new job.

    Can celebrities stop coming forward with these confessions? It’s quite common to have body image issues at some point or another. These aren’t profound or special problems. Famous people are still just people.
