Valerie Bertinelli, 63, Shows Pics of Her ‘Overweight’ Body in a Swimsuit, Sparking an Online Stir

At 63, Valerie Bertinelli inspires many with her message of body positivity, highlighted by a 2014 swimsuit photo of herself at 150 pounds. Emphasizing strength over skinniness, she has received an outpouring of support for her authenticity. Her self-acceptance journey gained momentum following the death of her ex-husband, Eddie Van Halen, in 2020, leading her to value self-worth over weight loss. In her memoir, “Enough Already: Learning to Love the Way I Am Today,” she discusses the liberation from societal beauty norms and the significance of finding happiness beyond physical appearances.
