Like many people, Tallulah Willis had insecurities about her looks when she was a teenager.
"I'm diagnosed [with] body dysmorphia," she told StyleLikeU. "[I would be] reading those stupid f***ing tabloids when I was like, 13, feeling like I was just ugly, always. I believed the strangers more than the people that loved me, because why would the people that loved me be honest?"
Willis, now 20, said that most of the mean-spirited comments focused on her face. Therefore, for years, she did different things to call attention to her body as a diversion, including wearing provocative clothing and then losing weight.
"I started starving myself and... I got down to 95 pounds," she said. "I lost my curves and my boobs shriveled up into like, nothing, and I had no shape and I was just saggy skin everywhere."
Although she admitted that she still feels uncomfortable on the red carpet sometimes, Willis is now more comfortable with herself and her looks. She also wants women who are struggling with self-acceptance to know they're not alone.
"If you don't feel good about yoruself in a physical way just don't look in the mirror, because nine times out of 10, I'll feel great and then I'll actually look myself and that's when I start to feel like [I need to change things]," she said. "There are these things that you don't have to care about! I always try to say that the feeling that you're supposed to have on your wedding day, [feeling like a] princess, why not have that every day? It's inside you the whole time!"
