An ultra toned up Rosario Dawson recently popped up on the cover of Shape Magazine to chat about her new bod and the extreme pressures she feels women are under to stay thin.

“I remember everyone asking when I was doing press for the movie, ‘What did you do to look so thin? You looked great’ and I’m like, ‘I looked emaciated,'” Dawson told Shape.

“It’s a form of violence, in the way that we look at women and how we expect them to look and be – for what sake?” she said. “Not health, not survival, not enjoyment of life but just so you could look pretty. I’m constantly telling girls all the time, ‘Everything’s airbrushed, everything’s retouched. None of us look like that.”
