Sophia Bush Talks Body Image And Fighting Against Racism

Sophia Bush isn’t know as being an activist of any kind, but that may be changing after some recent comments. Bush has been talking a bit more about some controversial issues over the last few days.

Bush recently opened up about the reasons she posed for Maxim, saying she had never really thought it was that good of an idea, but it turns out Beyonce of all people was able to convince Sophia to do the spread.

As Bush becomes a bigger name in the industry, she has been making the rounds on the morning talk shows. During an appearance on the Today Show, Sophia talked about her body and how she isn’t like some of the other women in Hollywood.

“I’ve spent so much time talking to women about, ‘Hey, I may be on TV and I may be photographed for magazines, but I don’t think I’m perfect. I don’t wake up in the morning and look in the mirror and go, ‘Hey, I’m amazing!’ That’s not how it is,” Bush said. “I’m a women and it’s a struggle for all of us.”

Sophia went on to say that it took her this long, it took her to be 31 before she was able to look at herself in the mirror and accept who she is and he body type. That might sound rather odd to plenty of men and women who find the former One Tree Hill actress about as attractive as they come.

Accepting herself for who she is, isn’t the only thing Sophia Bush has stood up for in the past few days. Bush also let her opinions about Donald Sterling and the Los Angeles Clippers be known just as the team’s owner was finding himself getting buried by the media.

Sterling’s audio tape in which he asked his girlfriend not to bring black men to the game has made him a pariah in the NBA and now he has been officially banned for life. Before the banning, Bush made sure to let people know she had a problem with Sterling’s words.

Just Jared reports Sophia took to social media to broadcast her thoughts saying, “Shout out to the #LA #Clippers for taking a stand against #DonaldSterling and his pathetic, sad racism today. The whole team, as a unified front, came out for warmups and revealed their shirts turned inside out, refusing to wear the logo of their beloved team in protest against its ignorant owner, and his hateful words. Mr. Sterling, there is no room for racism in the NBA. #equality #love #sportsmanship #teammates,” Sophia wrote.

It seems likely that Sophia Bush is going to be speaking out a little louder than she had in the past if these situations are any indication.
