Vanessa Hudgens is the first to share that celebrities aren’t immune to the same body image issues the rest of us deal with.

Though the star often embraces a Coachella-friendly crop top, she admits to having insecurity about her midsection. Sound familar?

“I think the stomach region for all girls is something we all struggle with. The pooch! I think we all know what that pooch is.” she told PeopleStyle while discussing her recent partnership with My Little Pony for the brand’s Friend It Forward campaign (with her sister Stella, Hudgens is encouraging others to perform “acts of friendship” and share them on Instagram with the hashtags #FrienditForward and #FriendshipIsMagic to raise up to $50,000 for generationOn, a subdivision of Points of Light).

Whether it be counting calories or running miles, Hudgens knows the struggle of women who “work so hard to make [the pooch] go away.”

But at 27, the starlet learned to love every part of herself, by embracing the fact that her body is healthy and works great.

“I don’t think we give our bodies enough gratitude for simply just doing what it does, without us telling it to do it,” Hudgens said. “Just the fact that it can digest food for you and keep food down and fight off bacteria. Realizing that has helped me love my body a little more.”
