Plus-Sized Nikki Blonsky: I'm "Confident" in a Swimsuit
Nikki Blonsky isn't afraid to show a little skin!
The 21-year-old Hairspray star flaunts her curvy bathing suit body in a billboard campaign for her new show, Huge, which premieres Monday night at 9 PM ET on ABC Family.
"I'm just comfortable and confident in my body. I could care less that the world is seeing me in a bathing suit right now," Blonsky told UsMagazine.com at the Toy Story 3 premiere in Hollywood last week. "I think they finally know what I look like in a bathing suit, if they were wondering."
Blonsky joins Hayley Hasselhoff in the new series about a group of teens struggling to gain acceptance and shed pounds while at fat camp.
"I play a character called Willhelmina. She's awesome, she's totally against the grain," Blonsky tells Us. "She doesn't want to lose weight. She thinks fitness camp is stupid and that's why I love her, because she doesn't want to do anything that the camp wants her to do."
And like her character, the actress admits that she's proud of her full-figured shape.
"I feel awesome," Blonsky tells Us. "I think there's nothing better than just showing by confidence and showing that I love my body. Why not share it with L.A., New York, everywhere?"
