To celebrate, Brooks did what any true ~badass~ would do: She shared photos of herself wearing a denim bralette, shamelessly showing off her curves (and that incredible tummy roll).
For her feature, the actress wore an incredible denim bralette, putting her tummy roll on full display.
In her InStyle interview, Brooks explained why her forthcoming New Years resolution will have nothing to do with the scale.
"A lot of my goal setting when I was younger had to do with weight," the actress revealed. "I’d often resolve to get under 200 pounds or be out of the double-digit clothing sizes. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve started to realize that those superficial achievements aren’t what life is all about. Now it’s more like, 'I want to be healthier and stronger.' If I’m feeling powerful, who cares whether I’m a size 14 or 16?"
Fans applauded Brooks for her confidence.
(Gabourey Sidibe included.)
But this isn't the first time Brooks has rocked a casual tummy roll.
At the Harper's Bazaar 150 Most Fashionable Women honors in January, Brooks stunned in a see-through top that unapologetically bared her belly rolls.
Brooks is a badass woman, indeed.
Bow down to Brooks, a body-positive queen.
