Mayim Bialik is not your average actress. The former "Blossom" star and current fan favorite on "The Big Bang Theory" is also an accomplished neuroscientist and now an author.

In her new book "Girling Up: How to be Strong, Smart, and Spectacular," Bialik uses her own experiences to discuss larger issues that impact women — from careers to death to body image.

And when it comes to body image, it is something she is "very human about."

"I really admire public women and people like Amy Schumer who have really spoken out a lot about being comfortable with 'imperfections' in their bodies," Bialik told Glamour. "I recently interviewed Hunter McGrady, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, for Grok Nation and it comes up in my Yahoo! feed all the time. There was just a woman who showed her reverse transformation, going from a size 6 to a size 16 and how empowered she feels. Honestly, that’s totally great for those women. I don’t have those feelings about the 'imperfections' of my body at all."

And she even gave Hunter her own two-cents.

"I said, 'I understand there are some women who love to show off their cellulite and stretch marks; I don’t feel empowered by that.' I think that’s going to vary, and I think both things need to be OK. I don’t feel shamed."

Bialik says this has a lot to do with the way she was "conditioned" to think.

"I grew up with a very different standard of beauty and attractiveness, as did many women my age. It takes a lot of adjusting for some of us to get used to this notion that all of a sudden things women were teased for and hated for I’m now supposed to flaunt. It’s just not how my brain’s going to work, but I think both things can be OK."

And she is right, they can. So long as her opinion of herself is positive, she doesn't owe any part of her body to anyone else.
