Busy Philipps signed on to front lingerie firm Aerie’s latest campaign for her daughters.

The actress and TV host has shared a lengthy Instagram post explaining her decision to pose in her underwear for the label, alongside British actress Jameela Jamil and The Handmaid’s Tale star Samira Wiley, revealing her own beliefs align with Aeire’s philosophy.

“I cannot explain to you what an honour it is to join @aerie as an #AerieREAL Role Model,” she began her post, alongside one of the campaign images. “Since 2014, Aerie has committed to using NO RETOUCHING on their models and the brand has been a champion for body positivity and inclusiveness. @aerie is about empowering women and girls by showing images of real unretouched bodies.

“I know for a fact I want my daughters to grow up in a world where they know and understand that true beauty comes from the inside out and true beauty doesn’t ever look just one way. The more we can have images out in the world that reflect that to us, the more that will become our reality.”

Busy, who has 10-year-old Birdie and Cricket, five, with her screenwriter spouse Marc Silverstein, went on to detail how she has wasted “so much time” hating her stomach over the years, but she has finally come to accept it.

“I wish I hadn’t been sold the lie that to achieve true happiness I needed a flat tummy and no hips so I could look like a model in an ad,” the star said.

As well as showing off her toned body in the campaign images, the 39-year-old also has her distinctive moles on full display.

Busy Philipps is teaching her children how to follow a balanced diet by allowing them to eat cookies when they don’t fancy fruit.

The former Dawson’s Creek actress recently admitted that she’s never had Botox or injectables, though she does enjoy beauty treatments like face masks to help combat wrinkles and fine lines.

And when it comes to her diet and fitness levels, Busy likes to stay healthy but is also happy to indulge when she’s in the mood – a mentality she is passing on to her daughters Birdie, 10, and Cricket, five.

“My whole philosophy in life is about trying to be balanced and as I’ve gotten older, I’ve realised that’s the only way that anything is sustainable – any diet, any exercise programme, you have to be able to allow yourself balance,” she explained in a chat with Shape. “And so why shouldn’t the same thing apply to my children, you know? Obviously, we try to offer fruit when they want something sweet, but if they don’t want the fruit I allow them to have the cookie! And I’m okay with that. I wanted cookies too when I was a kid.”

The 39-year-old adds that she doesn’t want her girls, who she shares with husband Marc Silverstein, to develop a “weirdness” with their food or their bodies, and, as their role model, she wants to lead by example.

Busy recently partnered with juice brand Tropicana to launch Tropicana Kids, a new line of organic fruit drinks, and has been giving them to Birdie and Cricket to cool down in the Los Angeles heat.

“It’s 45 per cent juice and filtered water, so I’m into it,” she smiled.
