Serena and Venus Williams

Serena Williams is one of the world’s top athletes, but even she can get a little insecure. She’s bested her sister Venus on the tennis court, but Serena said there is something she’s always envied: her sister’s figure.

“I’m super-curvy. I have big boobs and this massive butt. [Venus is] tall and she’s like a model and she fits everything,” Serena recently told Harper’s Bazaar about her big sister.

“I was growing up, wanting to be her, wanting to look like her, and I was always fitting in her clothes, but then one day I couldn’t,” Serena added. “I was 23 when I realized that I wasn’t Venus. She’s totally different.”

Serena said she’s learned to embrace her curvy, athletic body – and how could she not? It’s helped her earn 27 grand slam titles. We’d take that over model figures any day. (People)

    Every sister has some “body envy” moments, but you get over them when you get older.

    They are both beautiful women, so much better looking than all the skinny starlets.
