"Over the holidays, and even during filming, I realized that I actually like my body," Rihanna said of her physique in the interview. "Even if it’s not perfect according to the book. I just feel sexy. For the first time, I don’t want to get rid of the curves. I just want to tone it up. My body is comfortable, and it’s not unhealthy, so I’m going to rock with it.”
