Charli wishes people would not judge her so early and place some trust in her as a person: “It used to annoy me when I was younger because I suppose it just felt like people were always doubting me or waiting for me to fuck up and kind of scared and intimidated by the ideas I have.”

Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer believes she is constantly judged and admits it makes her feel lonely: “With celebrity comes a spotlight and a limelight that you’re in. You’re always continually judged. And a lot of times — the majority of the time — celebrities feel completely alone.”

Kate Upton

Kate says her work is judged online all of the time and she’s tired of people’s negative opinions: “I’ve heard people say, you put yourself in that position to be judged. But, no. I put myself in that position because I really liked that photographer, I wanted to do that piece of work. Not to be judged. The Internet can be horrible, so I just don’t look at it anymore.”

Kelly Osbourne

Kelly says people regularly judge her without knowing her: “When you’re in this position, it’s easy to be lazy and live off your parents, but it makes it hard for me to do something with my life, because I’m judged whatever I do.

I’m not victimising myself because life is hard in general and I know that I do have a fantastic one.”

Kylie Jenner

Kylie feels that her mistakes are so public: “I feel like this life comes with so many blessings but it’s also just difficult. It’s extremely difficult and you are growing and making mistakes and everyone is judging you. So, that is definitely hard but there are so many blessings that come along with it too…”
