Here is what these 5 celebrities have candidly said about their own low self-confidence issues and how they deal with it.

Keira Knightley

Constant media speculation regarding her weight put Keira on a low: “I knew I wasn’t anorexic. But maybe my body is somehow not right. Or my face is not right. Or the way I speak is not right. When you’re going through a period where you’re really getting a lot of criticism, you go, ‘Maybe all this is right!’ You just kind of want to hide it all.”

Adam struggled with an acne problem in school which left him with low confidence: ”When I was in high school and I had acne, I spent a lot of time sulking in my room. I was depressed. I was not happy. High school is hard enough, but having this problem and knowing that everyone is looking at you in the hallways … and I went to a small school and clearly nobody has acne like I did.”
