Jacqueline Fernandez (born 11 August 1985) is a Sri Lankan actress, model, and the winner of the 2006 Miss Universe Sri Lanka pageant. As Miss Universe Sri Lanka she represented her country at the 2006 world Miss Universe pageant. She graduated with a degree in mass communication from theUniversity of Sydney, and worked as a television reporter in Sri Lanka.
“It’s a movement which aims to inspire confidence in young girls, encouraging them to express their inherent beliefs, follow their instincts, find their best self, and be who they are, unapologetically,”Jacqueline told Mirror, pointing out that fitness is her way of loving herself.
The actress also went on to express her disapproval towards the idea of dieting and starving oneself to lose weight.
“Our bodies shouldn’t feel punished when we try to lose or gain weight. It’s only when the body is happy and satisfied that we inch towards fitness,” she said.
Jacqueline Fernandez is glad that with advancement in technology a woman doesn’t need to squeeze herself into a corset or slip into a killer pair of stiletto to look presentable. “Today, it’s easy to find a pair of heels that are comfortable while making you feel like a diva on!” says the youth icon who can’t remember the last time she went into a tizzy over what not to wear or complained of sore feet.
“Times have changed and so has the idea of fashion. We should do what we want, wear what we want and not let the world dictate our personal choices!” she exclaims. “With age, looks fade, health doesn’t.”
