Danielle Brooks, Instagram


Attention, everyone!

Feast your eyes on Orange Is the New Black's Danielle Brooks, who is hands down our new girl crush.

The actress posted a daring selfie earlier, showing her at the gym sans T-shirt, and wrote a hugely inspiring, body-positive message to all of her fans.

"Today I decided to do something I've never done before: Go to the gym with my SHIRT OFF!! I thought I'd share why this is significant for me. I've always wanted to do this but have felt shameful and have told myself 'until my body is perfect I'm forbidden.'"

Brooks continued, "Today my inner being told me to turn up the notch on my self-love. I should not be ashamed of my body. I'm not a walking imperfection! I'm a Goddess. Secondly, I'm a confident woman!"

The 25-year-old had one last parting gift for her followers: "Live in your confidence. One life. One body. Take care of it."

And just when we thought our love for her knew no bounds, she posted a series of hashtags that sealed the deal, which included, "#Voiceofthecurves #Yesmythighstouch #Lovethyself #Beautyinandout #Goddess #Imabadshutyomouth #Ivebeeneatingmygreens #Thickathanasnika"
