Queen Latifah’s Incredible Weight Loss: See Her Dramatic Transformation! (PHOTOS)

Queen Latifah opened up about her body image to Good Housekeeping in their January 2014 issue, saying, "I was not born a size 2. I'm not skinny, period."

The talk show host seems to be super comfortable with her curves — something she realized in her teens. "I think I got to that place by not being happy with the other side — hating your body and criticizing yourself all the time. When I was around 18, I looked in the mirror and said, ‘You're either going to love yourself or hate yourself.' And I decided to love myself. That changed a lot of things."

We think it's amazing that this gorgeous gal is embracing her body, and that she's also taken on a healthier lifestyle. Compared to this photo from 2007 at the premiere of Hairspray, the singer and actress looks much slimmer and more toned.
