Bollywood actress Ileana D’Cruz had shared earlier how she had to go through people’s tagging and perception about her body type.
She had expressed her feelings on how she overcame the body shaming and trolling when she had struggles with weight problems.
In a new media interaction, Ileana has revealed that now she accepts the body as it is, and calls her body as beautifully flawed.
She shared a long post on social media recently wherein she said how her tummy was not being flat enough or nose not being straight enough.
However, now she has learned the hard way to appreciate the body as it is and be okay with the way she looks.
In her Instagram post, she had written: “I’ve always worried about how I looked. I’ve worried my hips are too wide, my thighs too wobbly, my waist not narrow enough, my tummy not flat enough, my boobs not big enough, my butt too big, my arms too jiggly, nose not straight enough, lips not full enough….. I’ve worried that I’m not tall enough, not pretty enough, not funny enough, not smart enough, not ‘perfect’ enough.”
“Not realising I was never meant to be perfect. I was meant to be beautifully flawed. Different. Quirky. Unique. Every scar, every bump, every ‘flaw’ just made me, me. My own kind of beautiful.” The actor concluded, “That’s why I’ve stopped. Stopped trying to conform to the world’s ideals of what’s meant to be beautiful. I’ve stopped trying so hard to fit in. Why should I?? When I was born to stand out.”
