Amy Poehler, who already has our everlasting love and affection for her role in Parks and Recreations, has proven that she's not just an hilarious actor but also has some pretty amazing things to say about negative body images. Speaking from her YouTube channel, Amy Poehler's Smart Girls, you have to admit the actor is pretty insightful. We'll be following her advice anyway!

So what IS Amy's advice for being happy with the way you look?

​Accept there are only five perfectly symmetrical people in the world, they are all movie stars, and everyone else is different and that's a good thing. Be thankful for the parts of you that you do like!

​In the words of our favourite funny girl: "The earlier you learn that you should focus on what you have and stop obsessing over what you don't have, the happier you will be."
