Fighter Ronda Rousey Will Battle Body Image in Hollywood

Ronda Rousey will continue her successful UFC championship fighting career…but this time she will battle body image as an actress in Hollywood.

Rousey is 5 feet 7 tall. She feels attractive weighing in at 148.  And she often poses nude or with little clothes on for magazines like Sports Illustrated and Maxim because, as she told The New York Times, she wants “to embrace the body that used to embarrass her.”

But there’s more to her new career than just acting and posing for magazines: “If I can represent that body type of women that isn’t represented so much in media, then I’d be happy to do that,” Rousey says. “When women say that going on publications directed at men is somehow demeaning, I don’t think that’s true. I think that’s one really effective way to change the societal standard women are held to.”
