Anne Hathaway Empowers Women with Positive Body Image Message

by at .

Anne Hathaway is officially the anti-Kim Kardashian.

Because she hasn't starred in a sex tape? No.

Well... yes.

But the real reason we're making this point is because Hathaway just shared an important message with women around the world.

And it's the sort of thing Kardashian would never, ever, ever, ever, EVER say.

The Oscar winner, who gave birth to her first child in March, shared a photo on her social media account this week of a pair of cut-up denim jeans.

For what possible reason?!?

Allow her to explain...

“There is no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy (or ever)," she wrote, adding:

"There is no shame if it takes longer than you think it will to lose the weight (if you want to lose it at all)."

We can't help but stop here and bring up Kardashian once again by asking:

Can you imagine her sending along the same message?

Kim has spent nearly every social media post since she gave birth talking about how she ABSOLUTELY NEEDS to shed her baby weight.

Is it alright for a new mother to have this goal? To want to feel better about her figure? Of course.

But it's not alright for someone as influential as Kim Kardashian (it's depressing, but true) to make it seem like such a priority.

It sets a very poor example.

Hathaway, meanwhile, is taking the opposite approach.

“There is no shame in finally breaking down and making your own jean shorts because last summer’s are just too dang short for this summer’s thighs,” the mother of one explained  of the above picture.

“Bodies change. Bodies grow. Bodies shrink. It’s all love (don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.)"

Thank you, Anne! Preach on!

Back in May, Hathaway threw a bit of shade at Kim Kardashian as well.

At the time, the actress shared a version of a popular meme on Instagram, one that urged folks to be different “in a world of Kardashians.”

She added “In a world of Kardashians … Be a Helena Bonham Carter" to the meme.

In other words: in a world where people without character or talent can be so famous, try to be someone who has character and talent.

Hathaway welcomed her son Jonathan Rosebanks with husband Adam Shulman (pictured below) in March.

We hope the little guy appreciates his awesome mother.

With one Instagram post, Hathaway just empowered women more than Kim Kardashian ever has.
