5 Celebrities Who’ve Had Low Self-Confidence

Shailene Woodley

When asked what she would tell her 15-year-old self, Shailene commented that she would offer reassurance: ”I was afraid I was too skinny. I also didn’t have a lot of self-confidence. I projected a lot of confidence … But on the inside, I was very mean to myself. So I would definitely say to myself at that age, ‘You’re worthy. You’re beautiful.’ ”

Victoria Beckham

Victoria admits that she has insecurities that bring her down: “I do have my insecurities. Maybe that’s why I look a little bit serious. The kind of person who’s going to stand on the red carpet and have the big grin – I’m not like that. I want to get in there, do what I’ve got to do, and get home to my kids.”


David Gandy

David is always pushing himself to be better and look better and thus looks at himself negatively: “I don’t particularly like much of my body. I’m very critical of myself. I think I’m pretty much a perfectionist in anything I do so I’m never going to be happy. I’m not saying it’s a good thing, believe me. People can criticise me and try to being me down but I tell them, ‘You can’t be as hard on me as I am on myself, so don’t even try.’ “
