FITNESS/Yahoo! Survey: Halle Berry Tops List For Body Confidence

Most celebrities have enviable figures. But whose body confidence do we most wish we had? According to the newly released survey, compiled by FITNESS Magazine and Yahoo! Shine, women would most like to emulate Halle Berry.

The survey also polled both men and women on their satisfaction with their own weights, diet habits, body images and struggles with self-esteem. But body image is as good a place to start as any. As Anya Strzemien, Editor-in-Chief of Stylelist, Stylelist Home and HuffPost Style, points out in her recent essay on why she's started fining her colleagues for talking negatively about their own bodies: "[W]hen a woman engages in "fat talk," she may feel the effects of depression for several weeks afterward. Talk about a lose-lose scenario."

Who needs that? Instead, take a page from one of the ladies on this list, who display self-assurance to share:

28 percent of women said they wished they had the actress's body confidence.

"A magical thing happened when I turned 40 -- a light sort of went off, and I felt more self-assured and confident, like I finally had the right to be authentic about who I am, to say what I want to say. I guess that comes with getting older," Berry said during a press tour in support of her 2008 movie, "Perfect Stranger."
