    “I would love to switch on my TV and see a disabled person talking about something they are genuinely interested in or acting out a part that doesn’t just focus on their impairment.”

    So, here are 19 actors who have spoken up about Hollywood's beauty standard and body image problems:

    1. Ashley Benson

    2. Jennifer Lawrence

    3. R.J Mitte

    4. Carrie Fisher

    5. Gabourey Sidibe

    6. Mindy Kaling

    7. Florence Pugh

    8. Rebel Wilson

    9. Richard Madden

    10. Viola Davis

    11. Channing Tatum

    12. Zendaya

    13. Sophie Turner

    14. David Harbour

    15. Lupita Nyong'o

    16. Lamorne Morris
