Squat Inspiration: Celebrity Women With The Best Natural Back Sides
If you got it, flaunt it. While many have opted to go under the knife to enhance what God gave them, these stars needed no help in the derrière department, they were blessed from birth. We know, it sucks, but don’t hate, emulate. Sure, genetics has a lot to do with some of these stars’ backsides, but we also know a few sets of squats and dead lifts in the gym never hurt nobody — or should we say no booty. Click on and get inspired.
Tracee Ellis Ross
There’s a reason Kanye’s tapped Tracee Ellis Ross for his music videos and though we all appreciate how funny she is, we know her sense of humor isn’t why. Tracee’s body is fierce and though she may be biracial, that booty is all black.
Jennifer Lopez started out as a Fly Girl on the hit sketch show “In Living Color” but soon she was destined for bigger things. Releasing her debut album “On The 6,” the Bronx native made a lot of noise in the entertainment industry. And a lot of it had to do with her behind. La Lopez made a lot of heads turn with her Latina booty and more than two decades since she first emerged, she’s still got her deadly curves.
She coined the term “bootylicious” for a reason. In the hit song, Beyonce warned that people weren’t ready for “this jelly.” Putting her cakes on display in music videos and one stage performance after another, the international pop diva has maintained one of the best bodies and booties in music. Even after giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy two years ago, Beyonce’s body bounced back like a rubber band.
Her big sister started dominating the tennis court first but when Serena Williams came along, nobody with a tennis racquet was safe. While bigger sis Venus was long and lean and moved with a quickness around the court, Serena was built like a brick house and knocked opponents out one by one with her powerful serves and returns. Men were gong so crazy over Serena’s body and booty, she was even at the center of a rap beef between Common and Drake.
Halle Berry has been making movies ever since Spike Lee cast her as a junkie in “Jungle Fever.” Since then she’s become one of the most successful Black actresses in Hollywood. And also the object of many men’s affections. Berry solidified her banging body status by showing the goods in “Swordfish” and “Monster’s Ball.” Jamie Foxx made many jealous at the 2009 Spike TV’s Guy Choice Awards when he planted a big kiss on Berry while palming her behind.
Her hips don’t lie and neither does that booty. The Columbian born singer broke through the music barriers in her home country before making it big in the U.S. In 2006 she paid homage to her curves in the reggae-tinged song “Hips Don’t Lie” featuring Wyclef Jean. The accompanying video racked up millions and millions of views thanks to Shakira shaking her hips and dipping her derriere.
She may be an actress but Eva Mendes makes more headlines with her body than her movies. She gave everyone a look at what she’s working with when she posed naked for PETA. Set to debut in Rockefeller Plaza in Manhattan, city officials were so worried her naked body would cause a mob scene and traffic jam they asked the organization not to publicly air the exact time or place when Mendes’ ad would be revealed. She was also a spokesperson for Calvin Klein and put her body on display once again for several sexy campaigns.
LisaRaye McCoy got her first official lead acting role because she could drop it low. As one of the many bikini clad women in 2Pac’s “I Get Around” video, the Chicago native stood out enough to be convincing that she could play the single mother/student turned stripper Diamond in the 1998 film “The Player’s Club.” Stay fit and trim with the same donk she’s had from back in the day, LisaRaye’s body and booty stars on VH1’s “Single Ladies.”
Jada Pinkett Smith
Big and round doesn’t always win the race. Jada Pinkett-Smith proves there’s something to be said for tight, petite buns, especially when you’re 40-plus.
She may not be one of the most sought after actresses in Hollywood. But the casting director and movie execs knew exactly what they were doing when they signed Jessica Alba on to star in the “Fantastic Four” franchise. Playing the character Sue Storm, Alba wore a skintight catsuit for much of the film putting her firm behind on display for the silver screen and all of the superhero comic fans to enjoy.
She may be petite but she has curves for days. Growing up in Texas, Eva Longoria was crowned Miss Corpus Christi, USA in 1998. Her good looks and shapely figure helped her land the role of her career on the long-running ABC show “Desperate Housewives.” Knowing full well she has her body to thank for a successful career in Hollywood, Longoria once said her butt “is shapely and has served me well.”
She got her big break playing a preacher’s daughter on television with the hour-long drama “7th Heaven” at the age of 14 but Jessica Biel really made a name for herself three years later posing half naked for “Gear” magazine. Using her body, bum and sex appeal in Hollywood, Biel paraded around “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” in tight jeans, dropped down and got her eagle on as an exotic dancer in “Powder Blue” and gave teenaged boys wet dreams with her wet underwear scene in “Chuck and Larry.”
The name may not ring a bell right away but Mayra Veronica has one of the best natural booties in the business. The Cuban American model has frequently graced the pages of “FHM” and “Maxim” magazines. Appearing on many Spanish television shows, Veronica followed her passion for music and has released three Spanish albums. She also famously dated NFL player Reggie Bush, who has an affinity for a nice booty.
