Sarah Hyland: Love your body

Sarah Hyland urges females to "love" themselves and their figures.
The 23-year-old actress is best known as teenager Haley Dunphy in award-winning TV comedy Modern Family.
Opening up about her own self-confidence, Sarah shared some wise words for females who aren't comfortable in their own skin.
"You know, every woman has issues with her body. I'm sure Adriana Lima has something she doesn't like, which is ridiculous! But it's just how women are. It's one of those things where you have to love yourself for who you are; as long as you're healthy, that's all that matters," she explained to cosmopolitan.com.au.
"Girls deal with pressure differently. Some days I'm depressed, and other days I'm completely fine. The only advice I have for young women is to cherish the body you have now; when I was 18, I don't think I did."
The modest star continued to admit she needs to do more exercise. Rather than undertake activities to get in shape, Sarah hopes to increase her physical fitness and stamina.
"I for one need to start working out, 'cause I can't run a block without being out of breath! It's never about losing weight - that's not what I care about - I should just be a bit fitter than I am," she confessed.
There are two actresses in particular who the brunette beauty is inspired by and sees as role models.
"I've looked up to Kate Winslet since I was a little girl. And then... Jennifer Aniston, who I worked with on my second movie [The Object of My Affection], she's just such a positive person, and smart and elegant," she smiled.
"At the same time, she's not too classy - where you feel like they're royalty and you can't even touch them. Jennifer is down to earth and normal; that's all I ever want to be."
