Interview: Jameela Jamil, 33, has opened up to her thoughts about body image, says she is grateful that her body allows her to do her work, have sex and just live her life & # 39 ;
& # 39; I think about how it heals and recovers, takes me from point A to B, and allows me to do my job, have sex, and just live my life. It is a finely tuned engine that deserves to be respected, and I am so grateful for it now
& # 39; Stop embarrassing people about their bodies, stop embarrassing people for their age, stop taunting people about their symmetry. Let a bitch live. & # 39;
The former BBC radio presenter added that celebrities have a responsibility to be good role models and set a good example for young people.
She told how she thinks celebrities have replaced religion with many people and that young people sometimes listen to them more than their parents or teachers.
Romance: Jameela has a relationship with James Blake, whom she said empowers her and helps her learn to stand up for herself & # 39;
Jameela has a relationship with James Blake, who she believes gives her strength and teaches her to stand up for herself & # 39 ;.
She grumbled earlier about her beauty and how he helped her in her success by saying: & # 39; My friend taught me to stand up for myself. He has been a great force. I now understand the brains of white men 's privilege. I've been with him for four years …
& # 39; I decided to try my life the way he does – if he didn't do his nails for a mag interview, neither did I. He takes five minutes to get ready, including me.
Her interview comes after Jameela released a candid apology video when she apologized for coming across as a & # 39; preachy w *** er & # 39; after she recently rushed to the new body makeup series by Kim Kardashian.
Jameela said: & # 39; I just wanted to say sorry if I ever came across as a preaching alarm clock when I blame one of my worries about gender inequality.
& # 39; Especially when it comes to beauty standards, because they are ridiculous for women, and they are worse for women than they are for men, and sometimes I get very excited. & # 39;
She said: & instead of practicing body positivity, I practice body neutrality … I constantly thank my body for what it does for me & # 39;
She added: & I also read hundreds of letters a day from young people who send me very personal letters about how they feel suicidal or anxious or depressed or that they cannot leave the house because they feel too ugly because they cannot achieve complete perfection.
& # 39; That is what society and social media and fashion have expected from them. So when I look at the value of young people before they get the chance to find out who they are, I just feel angry. & # 39;
Jameela concluded her speech by admitting that she had made & # 39; mistakes & # 39; and promised to work on her tone & # 39; while she apologized.
She said: I did not mean to condemn you, I never condemn you, I would not have the right, I have made more mistakes than you are likely to ever do.
& # 39; I have wasted more money and time and opportunities for happiness than many people in this world. I will work on my tone and make sure that I don't sound like I'm telling you what to do.

& # 39; Hard pass & # 39 ;, she tweeted in response to a video that Kim shared to promote the product. & # 39; God damn it work to record everything before bedtime so it doesn't destroy your sheets … & # 39;
& # 39; I'd rather just make peace with my million stretch marks and eczema, & # 39; she added. & # 39; Taking off my mascara is enough pain in the ass. Save money and time and give yourself a damn long end. & # 39;
