Idealistic body goal

..assuming you are anything like me, I had a Hollywood star who I thought was the most beautiful woman- I wanted to look like her when I grew up.

Lots say Barbie was an influence for them.

My dream/goal physique has always been Catheryn Zeta-Jones. Badass, elegant and just gorgeous to me. As I have finally begun to see some impact on my years of pushing towards a more active and healthy lifestyle, over the last 10 years or so, I think I can finally say I am ready to start seriously pushing to try and get my body into shape as hers is.

.... I don't mean plastic surgery or trying to force my physique to match hers perfectly, but I can workout to try and attain a similar level of toned and such. I love dancing and running on the elliptical, which ironically are two things she loves to do too! Ha! I am already halfway there! :P

Does anyone else have a body-type/person whom they get motivated to keep pushing forwards towards, as best as they can?

    Yea, I saw Zeta-Jones in Zorro... fell in love with her. Wanted to be able to pull off her outfits haha.

    Then later I saw her in No Reservation and loved how she pulled off regular everyday clothing too aha.

    (My physique aligns with clothing of women I admire in shows/ movies lol. I have a style I love but never want myself to wear until I looked a certain way. ... I am touching it's edges now and am absolutely stoked about it!)

    I don't necessarily think I wanted to look just like her, but I always thought Alyssa Milano was very pretty.

    I feel like I spend too long looking at men, lol. I can't think of any women that I admired for long enough to recall a particular person. I would definitely admire as I saw them, but I don't recall a woman's body that I stuck to.

    That's how I was until I started really thinking about it!..then realized it was her aha.

    Guys are hard to find the physique I like too aha. Some physiques just Work for a person, so that's why I like it. ...but sometimes it is hard to come up with a specific Thing that you would want yourself - or see everday aha.

    She is in Charmed. As much as she was gorgeous, I wouldn't want to achieve her looks. I was more for emulating Piper (Holly Marie Combs) haha.

    I will have to think about it! I think I would like to find someone with a body more like mine, but in shape (someone who is shorter, but also carries more weight in their upper body - i.e. chest and arms). Someone I can think of is Twice's Jihyo.

    Agree with the bolded statement. Growing up, I never really had one person that I wanted to look like. I just wanted to be thinner (I was always a bit of a chunky kid). Now that I am older, I have learned to appreciate my muscular build and curves. The women I admire and "look up to" are ones who are strong and muscular. My goals now are to just be the best me.

    Where to begin?
    Sofia Loren because she is confident no matter what she is wearing or her size.
    Grace Jones- that edge and that muscle!
    Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider- yup, I love that movie. It's terrible, but I love it. She is curvy, strong and like the other ladies mentioned here - electric.
    Hyolyn - one of the few Korean stars with mega curves.

    Also agree on your mention of Linda Hamilton- her transformation in T2 is crazy-inspiring.

    Ultimately, I am inspired by women with curves, overflowing in confidence, fully engaged in their environment and easily laugh at themselves... or the world around them, I suppose. Out of all of the names listed here, I go back the most to Sofia Loren and Angelina Jolie.

    I don't remember paying much attention to any actress' physique until I saw Terminator 2 and was impressed with Linda Hamilton's arms. I like weight training, and strong arms are definitely a goal of mine.

    Angela Basset is another one. I don't recall the films, but her arms always inspire me

    I love it! I never wanted to be Built aha. Just fit...I term "shapely". I am on my way too! Whatever gives you the happiest and most confident and healthy self is the body you should strive to achieve I think! (Above all)

    I have so many Korean actresses who I envy for how awesome they are aha -being able to have the fashion n style, as well as general physique they exhibit in the dramas!

    I have a girlfriend and a wife of 2 actors I admire both for their talent as well as looks. Both are very trim without being too thin. My thinking is that by having a similar figure I'll be more attractive. Can't do much about my face (not going for any pity- I'm just plain) but losing a bit of weight from it should help.

    I’ve always admired Jennifer Aniston’s overall physique. Also Carrie Underwood’s legs! And Michelle Obama’s arms!

    I can't really think of anyone. But I do find my body looks very similar in composition to Jessica Biel (currently, not when she was in Blade) so that is a good goal to stick with. She is also my height so maybe that's why.
