Busy Philipps, 'Cougar Town' Star, Talks Body Image: 'I'm So Mean To Myself Sometimes'

We've always liked Busy Philipps, who stars on "Cougar Town" on TBS and was also once called "the perfect friend" to her BFF Michelle Williams. Now we like her even more.

In an interview with Amanda de Cadenet on "The Conversation," Philipps gets candid about the role weight still plays in women's lives and how media and entertainment contribute to that.

"I feel like it's the last frontier ... the weight thing with women. I think that so many women, like even myself ... I'm so mean to myself about my body sometimes, or I can be judgmental of other people for their bodies ... I don't know how to get over it." Finally, some honesty about body image in Hollywood.

Watch the full clip above for Philipps' take on the obsession with celebrities' post-baby bodies, how she feels about waxing and more.
