10 – Raven Symone
That’s so Raven! Launching her acting career at only four years old on The Cosby Show, Raven Symone appeared in several television series throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s before taking her talents to the stage as a singer. Catching the eye of the Disney Channel in 2003, Symone was given her own series—That’s So Raven—where she became a teen idol while continuing to pursue her music career. Still singing today, Symone stays busy balancing her work as one of the hosts on The View and with a recurring role on the primetime drama Empire.
Between wrapping up That’s So Raven and transitioning to the silver screen, Symone put on a noticeable amount of weight as she appeared in films like Dr. Dolittle, Cheetah Girls and Revenge of the Bridesmaids. Facing her weight issues head on, Symone lost 70 pounds and told the world, “I lost weight to keep people from talking about me. I got tired and irritated.” Maintaining a healthy weight after nearly five years, it’s safe to say that the 30-year-old’s busy schedule gives her an added boost of cardio throughout those long days of filming!
