Isn’t Ireland Baldwin just the best?
Sure, we usually only ever hear about her when she’s nude or nearly nude, and yes, she’s the spawn of Alec Baldwin, which isn’t great, but still.
She’s a gem, and she deserves to be treated as such.
While Ireland gets the most attention for being super hot, it’s important to note that she’s got more going on than just her beauty — and she proved it in a moving Instagram post she made earlier this month.
Along with the photo above, she wrote “This is who I am, take it or leave. I am not going to be body shamed for being pale or not stick thin.”
“I’m not going to beat myself up for not looking like someone else. I’m not going to be told that I’m damaged goods because of my tattoos.”
Hold up, there are people in this world that actually have negative things to say about Ireland Baldwin’s appearance?
Who are these people and what is wrong with them? Should they even be allowed to live on this planet with us?
In the post, she admitted that “Most days I’m self conscious, but today I love every curve and edge.”
“Your body should be treated with the dignity and respect it deserves.”
She explained that she wanted to be “as real as possible” with her followers, because “what is even the point of social media if you can’t be who you truly are?”
“I’m not here to mindf-ck all of you into believing I am something that I’m not. I’m forever on a journey of finding my better self and I will continue to work as hard as I can to make MYSELF proud.”
She finished her lovely little message with “Today I hope everyone is proud of who they are and can recognize what they can accomplish!”
So sweet, right?
And in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Ireland decided to get even more outspoken about body shaming.
“I just think a lot of people get shamed for being who they are, and there’s nothing wrong with being who you are and looking the way you look, as long as you’re healthy and happy,” she says.
“So, I felt the need to say something that week, so I did.”
“I got a really positive response,” she continues. “A lot of poeple I know needed to hear it that week, for some weird reason.”
“So I don’t know. I was kind of a voice for some people, some friends of mine that were going through something personal, and I was like, I have to say something.”
And if you’re looking for some more words of wisdom from Ireland?
She says that she feels her best “Just when I’m in my happiest state.”
“When I’m doing yoga, when I feel good about my body. Not necessarily punishing myself, or doing anything to harm myself. Just when I’m in a really happy, healthy frame of mind, you know?”
Yeah, girl, we know.
But feel free to keep sharing selfies, just to drive the point home.
