Peyton List thinks Hollywood is moving in the right direction when it comes to accepting women of all shapes and sizes.
“I think every girl always has doubts about her body,” the actress, 17, tells beauty website MIMI. “But I am so glad that I live and am working in Hollywood right now, at a time where people aren’t judgmental of your body. You don’t have to be a stick – it’s okay to have curves!”
List credits women like Amy Schumer for changing the types of bodies typically seen on screen.
“I’m really glad we have Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer and all these girls who are embracing all the different body types,” says the Disney star.

For List, it’s all about balance – you’ll never find her skipping a meal!
“I personally eat so much food and I work out a lot,” she says. “I saw Amy Schumer say something the other day that I totally related to and found hilarious. She said, ‘I don’t know how people are like, Oh my gosh, I missed lunch, I can’t believe it.’ She’s like, ‘I have never missed a lunch.’ I was like, ‘Preach! Same.’ I’ve never missed a lunch – I’m always the first one in line for food.”
List also told the beauty site about shedding her Disney image.
“I have been doing a lot of experimenting lately,” she says. “I am still finding myself, but I feel like I’m finally finding my style voice and what I love, and it’s been really fun. I have a big say in what I wear and what I go out in, and I have to feel confident in it before I leave.”
