Serious question: Do you ever talk openly about your vagina? Maybe you should. These celebrities weren’t afraid to share their business about their private parts with the world, and the results are not as shocking as you would think. Instead, it was all pretty empowering.

Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde told everyone that her first marriage didn’t work out because her vagina was not happy with the loving it was receiving (or lack thereof).

“I felt like my vagina died. Turned off. Lights out…you can lie to your relatives at Christmas dinner and tell them everything on the home front is just peachy. But you cannot lie to your vagina.”


In her controversial book Sex, Madonna said her vagina has taught her a lot.

“I love my pu–y, it is the complete summation of my life. It’s the place where all the most painful things have happened. But it has given me indescribable pleasure. My pu–y is the temple of learning.”

K. Michelle

Leave it to the always outspoken K. Michelle to bring vagina talk to Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.

She wasn’t afraid to go to a doctor, on national TV, to find out why her “hot pocket” was “broken” and wouldn’t work for anyone but her ex.

Find out what the doctor said (and who K. Michelle’s famous ex might be) here.

Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz told Chelsea Handler that she and her vagina are very close, and every woman should get to know hers just as well.

“I say grab a mirror and play along. Get in there. Learn about it. You’re supposed to treat it like the beautiful flower that is, the delicate flower that it is. And you’re supposed to nurture it in all the ways that it needs nurturing.”

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga says that hers holds her creative power. No, seriously.

“I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my vagina.”

Should you lay off of sex when you’re having a really inspired streak?

Laverne Cox

The Orange Is The New Black star said that she’s tired of people using genitalia to define who one is:

“People get so frustrated with this trans thing because they’re like, there’s just men and women, vaginas and penises, you’re either one or the other.

If you look at spirit traditions in the United States, or hijra traditions in India, religious cultures all over the world have fourth and fifth genders. And then Europeans and westerners came along and said, ‘What is this?’ Colonialism was not just about colonizing whiteness, but about colonizing the gender binary model.”

Shailene Woodley

Divergent star Shailene Woodley’s recommendations for everyone’s private parts? Give them some time outside to be free. As she told Into the Gloss:

“[I like to] give my vagina a little vitamin D … if you live in a place that has heavy winters, when the sun finally comes out, spread your legs and get some sunshine.”

Kelly Osbourne

Osbourne said that she worries about her vagina when it comes to motherhood in the future. She recently told Cosmopolitan, “I do want babies, but I don’t want a great big vagina.”

Kim Kardashian

Kelly Osbourne may be worried, but if Kim Kardashian’s post-North experiences are anything to go by, she shouldn’t be. After Kardashian had given birth, she said she was pleasantly surprised by the changes down there.

“When I came back from the hospital, the first thing I did was go and look at my vagina in the mirror. It looks better looking than before!”

Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg got political with her vagina talk when she told Planned Parenthood critics to “Get out of my vagina!” on an episode of The View.

And she had more to say to anyone who wants to stop access to abortions in the United States:

“If you think this is going to stop women from doing it, it’s not. People who are desperate enough to go and get an abortion, there’s a reason they need it.”

Amy Schumer

Funny lady Amy Schumer isn’t afraid to be open and honest about maintenance:

“It’s work having a vagina. Guys don’t think that it’s work but it is. You think it shows up like that to the event? It doesn’t. Every night it’s like getting it ready for its first Quinceanera, believe me.”


Amanda Seyfried

Do you love your vagina as much as Amanda Seyfried does? The actress recently revealed that the “Minge” tattoo on her foot is a celebration of her favorite friend:

“It means vagina and I’m kind of proud of it. It’s my nickname. You can’t see it, but it’s called Minge and it’s slang in England. It has something to do with your pubic hair in the dictionary.”

Kate Beckinsale

Actress Kate Beckinsale said that she loves talking about her vagina, but her teenage daughter wishes she would stop. In an Allure interview she said, “My daughter said to me, ‘You know, I’d really love it if you never said the word ‘vagina’ in an interview again.’ Whoops. I’ve just done it.”

Tyra Banks

Tyra Banks didn’t just talk about her vagina on the Tyra Show; she made history by being the first show to dedicate an entire episode to getting over awkwardness around talking about it.
