Kim Kardashian has always had plenty of haters in the press and among her fellow celebrities, and somehow they seem to be multiplying as her pregnancy progresses! Lucky for Kim, the ranks of her defenders are also growing in number, and she’s getting support from some surprising corners.

 

Here are some of the unlikely—and impressive—celebs that have rallied around Kim recently, and what they had to say! Kim’s certainly facing an uphill media battle these days, but we should all be lucky to have these women on our side.

 

Gloria Steinem 

"Our bodies are never public property under any circumstance," the feminist icon told Us Weekly when asked about the public scrutiny of Kim's baby weight. "If our bodies are treated as ornaments instead of instruments, that's because we are rebelling because it's an effort to distract us," she continued. "So don't be distracted. Why bother getting caught up in that?"

 

Gwyneth Paltrow 

“I think that women should support each other, especially through pregnancy,” Gwyneth told Entertainment Tonight. “It’s a difficult time and I think Kim Kardashian looks absolutely beautiful.”

 

Helena Christensen

“It is disgusting and despicable the way that certain media constantly harass the pregnant Kim Kardashian,” the Danish supermodel wrote in an open letter on The Huffington Post. “It's enough that they persistently project a negative focus on women's physical shapes; but a public bullying and attacking of a pregnant woman because of her growing shape is just lower than low."

 

Jenna Dewan-Tatum 

“Lets all be kind to every woman out there who is expecting...” fellow mother-to-be Jenna wrote on Twitter, “It shouldn't be about how much weight someone has gained,their fashion etc..it's a beautiful amazing moment in time and not about vanity!”

 

Jennifer Aniston

The former Friends star spoke up on Kim’s behalf while she was pregnant, but her sentiments had a bit of a broader scope. “There’s nothing wrong with Kim Kardashian and all those people,” Jen said in the documentary $ellebrity, according to Celebuzz. “If that’s how they choose to make a living, more power to them.”
