Jessica Alba

Jessica would skip her teen years if she could: “I would omit my teens (if I could). They were really tough. I was always a grown-up in a child’s body, in my mind – incredibly opinionated, stubborn, strong-willed, very independent. I’m on videotape when I was three talking about being an independent woman! “Then when I was a teenager it was a little bit paralysing because I felt I was an adult but I didn’t have any right as an adult.”

Kelly Rowland

Kelly couldn’t accept her body: “Your early teens can be the hardest years of your life. For me, it was a really, really hard phase. When I was younger I had a very big head, this really skinny body and thick old glasses covering my face. It was that time in your life when your nose and lips are bigger than the rest of your face and your hair just never seems to work out. Worst of all, my body didn’t really start developing until I was 17 or 18. I hated it. Some of the kids at school called me ‘boney’ because I was so skinny. I was forever trying to find bathing suits that would flatter my shape. I’d have to wear ones with push-up bras or little shorts because they made it look like you have hips. I literally had no shape at all and I was desperate to look a bit curvy.”
