Most stars seem to have flawless bodies, so it seems strange to hear them speak about things they don’t like about themselves, but these 6 stars all have something that they had a hang-up about. Kim Kardashian didn’t like her curves before but has since learned to embrace them, while Katherine Heigl doesn’t like her legs and even used to avoid wearing shorts because she thought they were “very fat”.
Kate Winslet has decided to put her body hang-ups to the side so that she can teach her daughter to embrace her own body: “I’ve decided I am going to start loving my backside, really just saying, yes. Because I don’t know anyone who does that, you know? And for my daughter [Mia, 8], I want to be able to say to her, ‘I love this.'”
Natalie Portman got tired of having her mole photoshopped out of photo shoots, because it made her feel as though people believe it’s ugly: “Having a mole on my cheek was the biggest thing. When I did photo shoots, they would Photoshop it out. No one ever said anything to my face, but I felt like I was being told that it was ugly. Finally, I had to say, ‘No! This is part of me. I’m not a model. I’m being photographed because of who I am – and that includes the mole!'”
Kim Kardashian used to hate her curves, especially her boobs, and used to pray that they wouldn’t grow any bigger. These days she is happy to embrace her figure: “I remember crying in the bathtub, I took a washcloth, made it hot, put it over my chest and prayed, ‘Please don’t let them grow any bigger.'”
Keira Knightley things that everything from the waist up is fine to look at, but she doesn’t want anyone to see anything below her waist, because she doesn’t think it’s a pretty sight: “You’re not going to see my a*se! The top half is fine but the bottom half isn’t. It’s a girl thing. You know, it’s just one of those things.”
Katy Perry struggled with her curves as she grew up, but later realized that her famous hourglass figure is sexy: I had enormous boobs that I didn’t know what to do with, I wore minimizers, which were not cute. I got made fun of for the over-the-shoulder boulder holder. All I wanted was to look like Kate Moss. Little did I know that these things would come in handy someday.”
Katherine Heigl hates her legs and feels she has no control over her thighs: “I always complexed about my thighs. I think they’re very fat. This is the only part of my body which I have no control of. My thighs are my obsession. For this reason I avoid dressing up in shorts for years.”
