31. SOFIA RICHIE
Why so bootylicious? Sofia Richie’s dad is Lionel Richie, and her sister is Nicole Richie, so she is no stranger to being in the public eye. But the model’s sexy bikini shots have helped her fame skyrocket. Richie, who has been dating Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend Scott Disick for quite some time, is often photographed at the beach showing off her famous booty in nothing but string bikinis.
The bottom line: Richie works out with celebrity trainer Kevin Mejia who actually broke down her bootylicious routine on his Instagram. The routine is brutal and consists of lots of work with bands, kettlebells and ankle weights.
30. CANDICE SWANEPOEL
Why so bootylicious? Candice Swanepoel is one of the most famous Victoria’s Secret models — just one look at her drop-dead gorgeous body and you can see why. Swanepoel, who has two children, keeps her curves intact through exercise, but she admits that genetics plays a role.
"I've been lucky — I was born with quite a fast metabolism. I'm that girl who orders the healthy plate with a side of fries. Your body is like a machine and everyone's is different. I know mine quite well,” she said.
She definitely won the genetic lottery.
The bottom line: Besides her enviably fast metabolism, she works with a trainer who knows how to target her booty. Her favorite exercise routine is boxing — just like Bella Hadid! She shares that she often does her workout at night and likes to incorporate yoga into her routine as well.
29. DUA LIPA
Why so bootylicious? Dua Lipa’s derriere is simply divine. The “New Rules” singer has been blowing up the charts with her amazing voice and dance moves, and she loves showing off her fabulous fanny to her 36 million Instagram followers. Her workout routine is surprisingly simple — she only works out for 15 minutes at a time!
“It’s high-intensive interval training, but it’s so quick, it’s over before it’s even started!”
The bottom line: How does Lipa get her derrière toned up for her risque bodysuits? Her quarter hour workouts are short but intense as she focuses on jumping jacks, mountain climbers and burpees.
28. SALMA HAYEK
Why so bootylicious? Frida actress Salma Hayek must bathe in the fountain of youth ... as somehow her body and her booty only get better with age. Case in point, Hayek posted this photo on her Instagram page looking amazing in a tiny blue bikini. “Yes, tomorrow I’m 53,” she wrote.
Her secret to her amazing figure is somewhat unconventional, as she admitted she doesn’t really like working out. "I work with a woman in London who taught me how to hold my body in a way where the muscles are activated all day long. So even when you brush your teeth, you're working the muscles.”
The bottom line: In addition to her obviously good genes and unconventional workout, Hayek posted this video on Instagram showing her making the treadmill fun by shaking her thang. She wrote, “I hate working out, but I love dancing.”
Why so bootylicious? In the iconic words of Sir Mix-A-Lot, “Baby’s got back!” Singer Halsey busted onto the scene several years ago, and she is showing no signs of slowing down. In addition to her amazing voice, she has fabulous style and a drool-worthy booty! The “Bad at Love” singer always keeps fans on their toes with her ever changing style (Blue hair? Pink hair? Yes, please) and her knock-out body.
The bottom line: Halsey did reveal she did “a lot of sit ups” to get in shape for performing at the Victoria’s Secret runway show, but she is keeping mum on the trick for getting her booty in shape. Her live shows are high energy and filled with amazing dancing, so that has to play a part in keeping her booty on point.
Why so bootylicious? Ciara is a triple threat. She is a singer, songwriter, dancer — and has the perfect backside to boot! Her husband, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, definitely agrees. Did we also mention that she has two young kids? All that dancing definitely plays a role in keeping Ciara’s backside looking fab, but she also works hard for it.
The bottom line: Besides getting her cardio in on her Peloton bike (she rides for 30-45 minutes daily), she also does at least an hour of circuit training as well.
“I'm always looking to build my glutes, and a good way to do that is by doing burst movements like squat jumps with weights and then without the weights. This fires up your muscles more quickly,” she told InStyle.
25. BELLA HADID
Why so bootylicious? Whether she is walking the runway or hanging out on a yacht with her BFF Kendall Jenner (who also made our list), Bella Hadid’s amazing body never fails to disappoint. She has a perfectly toned backside that has turned her into the supermodel she is today. Despite that, Hadid confessed in an interview that she has insecurities.
“I think every single person in the world has insecurities,” she said. What is her biggest insecurity? “I wish my ass was bigger,” she said.
The bottom line: Even though Hadid’s butt is looking bootylicious, she confessed that she has to be careful to not lose too much weight.
“My weight fluctuates so much,” she says. “I really didn’t mean to lose weight. Like I want boobs. I want my ass back. But it’s not my fault. My weight fluctuates and so does everybody’s and I think that if people are gonna judge, that’s the worst thing you can possibly do because everybody is different.”
24. JENNIFER ANISTON
Why so bootylicious? Jennifer Aniston looks as fabulous today as she did when she played Rachel Green on Friends 25 years ago. And fans were in awe of her toned backside when she stripped down to her underwear in her movie, We’re the Millers.
Her secret? “It’s hard work, you know. You work out, you just take care of yourself and you exercise. You eat right, you sleep, you’re happy.”
The bottom line: Aniston says she works hard, but she has lightened up on herself recently. “When we’re kids, we are constantly working out for smaller arms, a leaner butt, a flat tummy. Let it be. I can be a little soft.”
Despite lightening up a bit, her workout routine will still kick your ass … literally! “I have a spin bike, an elliptical bike and a treadmill — and I do cardio for at least 20 minutes a day. Even that short burst makes a difference.”
23. MILEY CYRUS
Why so bootylicious? Miley Cyrus can’t be tamed when it comes to showing off her famous backside. Let’s not forget she practically started the whole “twerking” fad with her famous booty-shaking movies. She has an air of confidence about her body and is unapologetic about showing it off. Case in point: The newly single singer posted this sexy butt selfie with the caption, “Hot Girl Summer.”
The bottom line: Cyrus keeps her booty in shape through a strict diet consisting of plant-based foods and avoids gluten and dairy, says Harper’s Bazaar. In addition to her diet, she practices pilates and yoga two hours a day, six days a week. Her most important asset, however, is her awesome confidence.
22. CARDI B
Why so bootylicious? Rapper Cardi B has the talent, the style and the booty that keeps her at the top of the charts. She loves showing off her famous curves in outfits that leave little to the imagination.
Fans love the “Bodak Yellow” star partially because she is so open about her plastic surgery procedures. She revealed that she has had butt injections, liposuction and breast implants, saying she doesn’t have time to work out and relies on plastic surgery to maintain her figure.
The bottom line: Even though Cardi B already has enviable curves, she told GQ that she paid $800 — when she was working as a stripper at age 21 — to get butt injections to become even more bootylicious.
“They don’t numb your ass with anything,” she said. “It was the craziest pain ever. I felt like I was gonna pass out. I felt a little dizzy. And it leaks for like five days.”
Needless to say, Cardi B said the person who did the dangerous and illegal butt injections was thrown in jail. Yikes!
21. MEGAN FOX
Why so bootylicious? Megan Fox has had hilarious turns in This Is 40 and New Girl, along with helping those Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and is a mom to three boys with husband Brian Austin Green who has always been known for her amazing figure.
The bottom line: Fox once revealed to E! News how she keeps in such great shape after having three kids, "I exercise really hard twice a week... I do bursts of cardio with really heavy weights. Circuit training." That'll keep the backside firm, for sure!
20. JESSICA BIEL
Why so bootylicious? There are many things going for Jessica Biel, including her hubby Justin Timberlake, their adorable son—and most recently her stunning performance in Season 1 of the USA anthology series The Sinner. But everyone envies that toned bum of hers, which she bared in a shower scene for the show.
The bottom line: Biel talked to Bossip and said she keeps her cakes firm by doing “a lot of squats. And a lot of sprints. Boring and a painful burn. It’s good to have a big cake—to do some martial arts and high kicks.”
19. SCARLETT JOHANSSON
Why so bootylicious? Scarlett Johansson has proven how incredibly well she fits into her skin-tight leather Avengers outfit as Black Widow, kicking everyone else’s ass while hers stays firmly in place.
The bottom line: According to Shape magazine, ScarJo is a fan of the kettlebell workout—she works out at least three times per week and incorporates strength-training moves like pull-ups into her workout on a regular basis.
18. BLAKE LIVELY
Why so bootylicious? Blake Lively definitely has charmed life, living with her cutie husband, Ryan Reynolds, and their two precious little ones, along with a great acting career. Still, the way she can sashay in a skin-tight gown… wowza!
The bottom line: Although Lively said she trained hard before she made her shark flick The Shallows (eight months after having her second child), she revealed that actually making the movie got her into the best shape. She told E! News, “After six weeks in the water… I had muscles I never had before and a level of strength.”
17. KENDALL JENNER
Why so bootylicious? Kendall Jenner is the first of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters to make this best butt list because let’s face it, they all have great backsides. The model’s thinner frame doesn’t lessen the fact she has an amazing butt.
The bottom line: Jenner is into heat-infused workouts. She told W magazine, "I feel like I get my best workout when I sweat a lot, so hot yoga is definitely my exercise obsession at the moment."
16. EMILY RATAJOWSKI
Why so bootylicious? The fetching Emily Ratajowski has never shied away from showing off her bod on social media, including her toned derriere, which she favors in skimpy thong bikinis, lingerie—and just plain in the buff.
The bottom line: This might be frustrating to some, but the model/actress isn't big on working out. “I am not a big gym person,” Ratajowski once told InStyle. “I really like being outside and doing yoga, so I do a lot of hiking in L.A. and I have a yoga studio really close to my house that I go to like once a week.”
Why so bootylicious? Singer/actress Rihanna has one killer bod and has always thought her butt was one of her biggest assets—until she lost some of that cake with weight loss.
The bottom line: "I miss my a**. It just went away! I need a butt," the Barbadian singer lamented to Harper's Bazaar in 2012. "I have an idea of one, but it's not living up to its full potential right now. I want my old butt back!"
14. PIPPA MIDDLETON
Why so bootylicious? Pippa Middleton grabbed the world's attention at her sister, Kate Middleton's, royal wedding to Prince William, when she appeared in a form-fitting Alexander McQueen white dress that accentuated her fabulous bum. It nearly stole the royal show!
The bottom line: After the fervor over her toned backside, Middleton admitted she didn't quite get all the hullabaloo. “I was surprised and still don’t understand it,” the brunette beauty once said.
13. LADY GAGA
Why so bootylicious? Lady Gaga is another one who isn't afraid to show off some serious skin with many of her outrageous outfits. Promoting her 2016 album Joanne, Gaga's posterior looked smokin' hot in very short cut-off denim shorts.
The bottom line: Gaga shared on The Graham Norton Show in 2014 that her mother didn't like it when her daughter got her nose pierced. "I said 'Mom, really? I'm naked in every magazine! I've been naked from the beginning. I've had my ass out since 2007!" And that's something we applaud.
12. SOFIA VERGARA
Why so bootylicious? Actress Sofia Vergara has never met a gown she couldn't pour herself into, and she and her curvy backside are always a bright spot on the red carpet.
The bottom line: The Modern Family star considers her butt one of her best assets, and why wouldn't she? "I'll tell you something. I've always been known for my boobs, but it pisses me off," she jokingly told Women's Health. "Because I do also have a great a**!"
11. ASHLEY GRAHAM
Why so bootylicious? Ashley Graham has taken the modeling world by storm and loves to post scantily clad pics on her social media, displaying all of her voluptuousness. Her butt is definitely a highlight.
The bottom line: Graham has always been an advocate for body confidence. In an interview with Vogue, she said, “Having more role models, more women who are like... 'My butt is a really bizarre shape but you know what, whatever, I’m just going to go rock it.’ I think if we had more role models like that, who were really just speaking their truth about their body and the skin that they’re in, then maybe young America would be different.” Truth!
10. COCO AUSTIN
Why so bootylicious? Reality TV star Coco Austin knows a thing or two about having an extremely curvaceous posterio—and she loves to highlight her best features whenever she can.
The bottom line: Although there have been many rumors that Austin's butt is fake, she and husband Ice T had a doctor come on their show and inspect her bottom, who determined it was all real. "Based on anatomy and the muscles – there are three muscles there, I can feel them all. There's not an implant there. I don't feel fat injected," the doctor declared. "I can certify that this is a real, natural butt!"
9. KHLOÉ KARDASHIAN
Why so bootylicious? The youngest Kardashian sister definitely makes the best butt list. She has taken pride in her hourglass figure and has worked hard on firming that enviable bum of hers.
The bottom line: The reality TV star has also knocked down rumors of butt enhancements, and after becoming a new mom, wrote about how she was ready to get her body back into shape. “When I saw myself in those first post-pregnancy paparazzi photos, I couldn’t believe how big my booty looked!” she wrote on her site. “I can’t wait to tone up again and get my body back to where it was.”
8. AMBER ROSE
Why so bootylicious? The curvy Amber Rose likes to share with her fans on Instagram all of her body positive messages—as well as showing off her rockin' butt.
The bottom line: Rose's well-rounded behind is also all real. She once shared an Insta-snap of her bare butt in a thong bikini that showed off some very natural dimples. Rose captioned the pic, "Yaaaaaas dimples on the booty! Lol #StandUpStraightSoIKnowitsR #BeautifulBabiesGiveYouBeautifulDimples #MILFIN."
7. SERENA WILLIAMS
Why so bootylicious? As one of the world's best tennis players, Serena Williams is known for her strong, athletic body, including her shapely backside. As a mom to daughter Olympia she also wants to set a good example for being confident in the way you look.
The bottom line: Williams once told Harper's Bazaar UK, "'Oh God, I’ll never be a size 4! Why would I want to do that, and be that? ' she marvels. 'This is me, and this is my weapon and machine,’ she says, gesturing towards her bicep. ‘But I love that I said that, because I can understand. I can show Olympia that I struggled, but now I’m happy with who I am and what I am and what I look like...”
6. IGGY AZALEA
Why so bootylicious? Iggy Azalea is definitely known for her big derriere, which she often flaunts onstage in tight bodices and fishnet stockings.
The bottom line: But the rapper isn't always thrilled with her junk in the trunk. In fact, it's a burden sometimes when wearing pants. The Aussie once said, "My pants have split onstage three times—the three times I tried to wear real pants, it went terribly wrong."
5. KYLIE JENNER
Why so bootylicious? Kylie Jenner follows in her sisters' booty-steps with an ample rear that she accentuates in many fab ways—even after becoming a new mom to daughter Stormi.
The bottom line: "No ass implants," Jenner once told Cosmopolitan. "I used to be 120. I told everyone. I was like, I’m 120. I was like 16. I was riding on my little G wagon. I was really skinny. Now I’m pushing like 136? But it’s all right. I like my chunkiness. Plus, like, it’s good to know your angles. Always know your angles. I don’t really think I have, like, the fattest ass? But I know my angles."
4. NICKI MINAJ
Why so bootylicious? Like Kylie Jenner, the vivacious Nicki Minaj certainly knows her angles as well and loves showing off her curvaceous features on social media, in as many skin-tight clothes as she can.
The bottom line: Barbie has never really commented one way or another if her butt is all natural because she doesn't find it necessary. “I don’t mind the questions, I don’t mind the fascination. It’s all good. I mean…but I’ve said this before, it doesn’t define me," Minaj told MTV2 in 2011. So just respect it, y'all!
Why so bootylicious? Well, first of all, Beyoncé sort of invented the word “bootylicious.” On top of that, the singer, with her amazing voluptuous curves, has one of the best booties around, so it fits.
The bottom line: Bey once explained, “I guess my butt is natural. But I go through stages like every woman. I like being curvy but sometimes I get curvy in the wrong places. After New Year I do stairs—they are the best thing for butt cheeks. Every January I'll start working out. I'll do that for three months and then stop again!
2. JENNIFER LOPEZ
Why so bootylicious? Jennifer Lopez makes number two on the list for her unstoppable derriere, which, as a great dancer, she is able to shake with the best of them.
The bottom line: J. Lo doesn't think having a nice, well-rounded bottom is that big of a deal. She once said, “In Hollywood, it’s a little bit of a novelty. But for us, who grew up where we grew up, it wasn’t that big of a deal! From when I was very young, my family would be like, ‘Jennifer’s got a big butt.’ I was endowed in that area.”
1. KIM KARDASHIAN
Why so bootylicious? Naturally, Kim Kardashian tops the best celebrity butt list because hers is one of the reality TV star's defining features—an asset she most assuredly loves to display in all its glory.
The bottom line: Kim K has shot down reports of silicon butt implants again and again and famously proved that point on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians when an X-ray showed there were indeed no implants. She maintains her larger butt is due to having been pregnant twice and cortisone injections for psoriasis symptoms.
