A stretch mark is a type of scar which develops when your skin shrinks or stretches quickly. Stretch marks can occur on a range of body parts, including the stomach, hips, thighs, upper arms, breasts, and lower back.
These lines tend to occur in adolescents who are rapidly growing. Also, they usually appear during or after pregnancy or after a sudden change in your weight.
According to statistics, between 50 and 90% of women who are pregnant experience stretch marks during or after birth.
Additionally, individuals who use steroid-containing skin ointments or creams for more than a few weeks may also get stretch marks.
List of 15 Famous People With Stretch Marks:
#1 Robyn Lawley
She is an Australian model who is best known for being the first Australian plus-size model to feature in the cover of an Australian fashion magazine.
Robyn isn’t ashamed of her stretch marks – instead, she’s proudly displaying them for the world to see.
In 2017, she Instagrammed a topless post-pregnancy photo. In addition, Robyn added a link to an explanation on Facebook to her bio. In the Facebook post, Robyn says that a magazine in the UK published rumors that she almost had an abortion to “avoid stretch marks.” She wrote:
“I was shocked, not only because that is not what I said—not to mention I already had a ton of stretch marks like 90 percent of the world—but to read that entire article and be already heavily pregnant, that’s their angle?”
“As for my stretch marks I knew they were coming and as they’re fading into white (like all my others) I thought I might capture them. Because they are some badass #tigerstripes. And I earned them.”
#2 Scarlett Johansson
Johansson has stretch marks on her breasts, however, she usually hides them.
#3 Britney Spears
Britney and her then-husband Kevin Federline welcomed their 1st child, Sean Preston. A year later they were blessed with their second child, Jayden James. After having two kids, it’s no surprise that Spears has stretch marks.
#4 Drew Barrymore
Barrymore married Will Kopelman in June 2012. Three months before, the couple welcomed their first daughter, Olive. In April 2014, their 2nd baby girl, Frankie, was born. During an interview, Drew said:
“After making two babies, holy cow, does your body do some crazy stuff! It’s hard to stay positive and love yourself. You feel like a kangaroo with a giant pouch; everything’s saggy and weird.”
“Those marks prove that I was blessed enough to carry my babies and that flabby tummy means I worked hard to lose what weight I could.”
During an interview, she admitted that she had post-breastfeeding stretch marks on her breasts. In 2014, Kim ended up undergoing laser treatment to have the stretch marks removed. She said:
“After breastfeeding North, I wasn’t happy with the stretch marks on my boobs.”
Kardashian later added:
“I had the area Coolbeam lasered by Dr. Ourian. It made SUCH a difference. The Coolbeam lasers are the best for removing scars, stretch marks, and skin imperfections.”
On May 29, 1998, Cindy married Rande Gerber. Together, they welcomed two children, daughter Kaia Jordan, and son Presley Walker. She hasn’t shied away from showing off the post-partum stretch marks on her stomach.
During an interview, Cindy said:
“I have cellulite. I admit it. But sometimes I just say, ‘Screw it, I am going to wear a bikini’.”
“I don’t look the same as when I was 20 or 30, but the challenge is to embrace that and the life you’ve built along with that.”
She is a Grammy-winning Latina pop singer, activist, philanthropist, mother, and wife. Shakira is multilingual and can speak four languages – Portuguese, Spanish, English, and Italian.
In 2014, Shakira lifted her shirt in one of her recent performances and many people noticed stretch marks.

”If you look at my stomach, you’ll see a lot of loose skin. Stretch marks. Dimples. Brown spots. A bit of a pouch where all that loose skin is hanging out over my waistband.”
”It’s a hot mess. Given that I am otherwise thin, and I like to run in shorts and a sports bra, you’re going to notice my stomach flapping.”
“I’ll take the stretch marks. I’ll take the sagging boobs. I’ll take the cellulite I can never get rid of.”
