Speaking to an entertainment portal, the actress explained how she struggled with body dysmorphia. According to her, people usually look for fault with themselves while confronting insecurities but the fact is one should embrace every bit in order to feel stronger and beautiful.
The actress says the main problem with body dysmorphia is whatever the size or number is, people often ask others to validate the fears. She also admitted that there are moments when she looks at herself in the mirror and feels somewhat disgusted but now she has worked on a significant change in her life. She concentrates on one particular aspect or feature that she likes and tries to focus on that. Her advice is whoever struggles with accepting themselves has to try this aspect.
This is not the first time she has opened up on this subject. Previously, Ileana had opened up about her physical appearance on social media. “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,” she had posted on Instagram a few months back.
On the work front, Ileana will next be seen in the social comedy film ‘Unfair & Lovely’ opposite Randeep Hooda.
