The conversation came on the heels of two celebrities' recent uplifting messages about body positivity and dealing with hate, as The View panelists were discussing Selena Gomez's Monday, January 22, Instagram Story comparison of her 2013 body to now, while Nicole Kidman weighed in on not letting the public impact her fashion decisions following her recent appearance at the Expats premiere in New York City on Sunday, January 21.

"Today I realized I will never look like this again," Selena wrote alongside a paparazzi shot of herself wearing a zebra-print bikini in 2013, when she was just 21 years old.

"I’m not perfect but I am proud to be who I am. Sometimes I forget it’s ok to be me," the Wizards of Waverly Place star, now 31, added, as she additionally posted a picture from her trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, last year.

Nicole, on the other hand, opened up about being 56 and finally deciding not to let others play a role in her decision-making processes during a recent episode of the "Something To Talk About" podcast.

"I make the most random, crazy choices. I call it 'teenage choices' because I don't ever think of the consequences," the Big Little Lies star explained. "I have to be made to think of consequences half the time. Part of my brain just doesn't think like that. I just try to keep in that place because otherwise I think you get scared or worried about what people think. In terms of people's reactions, I say don't tell me. I don't really want to know. It'll stop me from doing what I want to do."
