Candid: Jameela Jamil has claimed that there are more high profile celebrities who are "afraid" to comment on Black Lives Matter for fear of being "canceled" (GRAZIA, for sale on Tuesday June 30).

Jameela said to Munroe: “There are people who are so much more powerful than me who can do so much good, but they are afraid of being canceled.

"I know that because I speak to them every day and want to help them all, but they're so afraid of doing something wrong."

During the interview, they also discussed I Take Responsibility's most recent video, in which stars like Jameela's co-star Kristen Bell recognized their role in maintaining racism.

The group, which included Sarah Paulson and Aaron Paul, received a backlash for participating in the PSA about the white privilege, which was described as "harrowing".

Munroe commented on the video as follows: "I felt her pain with the video" I take responsibility ". It was so shocking, but you could tell that their hearts were in the right place and they wanted to do something, but there was no call to action.

“The best thing you can do is do what you (Jameela) do and turn the microphone over instead of speaking out loud yourself. It's about amplifying the voices of people who have been doing this for decades. & # 39;

Jameela referred to her friendships with some of the famous faces in the video and said, "I like some of the people in this video and I don't think any of them had bad intentions. The problem is that it seems very performative.

Jameela went on to add that people want to see real action instead of a video that made your face "ring".

She said, "As if you wanted to show people that you care, instead of engaging in actual actions. Nobody gives a flying f ** k about celebrities and their ring lights. They want money and legislative pressure to change. & # 39;

In addition to the interview, Jameela posed for a series of stylish shots for the magazine, in which she looked stunning in a series of pristine snapshots.

Jameela has become a great voice for body positivity in recent years and talks regularly about how she will only work with outlets that don't edit her photos.

Fast diet tricks and products are high on Jameela's hit list of things she aims to do in her fight against women believing that she needs to change her body.

Admitting that she was concerned that this only increased during the ban, she said, "I am very concerned that celebrities, especially women, are talking about their weight gain as if it were something horrible, and I was concerned about the scary surge in nutrition and fasting apps and detox products are being sold.

Jameela said to Munroe (pictured): "There are people who are so much more powerful than me who could do so much good but are afraid of being canceled."

“Usually they start freaking us out about our beach body. Because they can't, they're trying to freak us out about our survival of a pandemic. How damn it is! & # 39;

During the chat, Munroe asked Jameela if she had learned anything about herself in quarantine, and she replied, “In the past few years, I have been so busy I have had no time to study, and I think that has helped many mistakes I made.

“This gave me space to really study, learn, read and educate myself. I was so busy (before) that I didn't have the time to really know what I was talking about all the time, and I'm very grateful for this break, hopefully being able to be a less problematic, less ignorant person become. & # 39;

As she talked about how she plans to change in the future, she added, "I think I'll create a calmer, more thoughtful, and more careful person who is aware of the harm when there is a 280-word Twitter word count.

"Now I have the podcast and the YouTube channel. I don't have to condense all of my thoughts, and that's amazing. Now I have time and space for nuances and contexts, because without that I was fucked on Twitter. & # 39;

"It is understandable that the public does not trust powerful people, so I have always known that everyone has always read the badest intentions in every movement I make. They always think I'm manipulative or I have an ulterior motive. Nobody can believe that I really just want to try to help. & # 39;
