Both Bella and Gigi Hadid are no strangers to comments about their weight. No matter what, it seems like everyone has an opinion — and those opinions are often negative. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Gigi admitted that she’s loved her body throughout all of its stages, and noted it’s important to always appreciate yourself.
Gigi, who was interviewed by Blake Lively for the publication, brought up the fact that she still receives negative backlash from internet trolls about her weight loss, and yes — it still stings.
“Most of it is just nonsense. But it can still hurt,” she said. “Nowadays, people are quick to say, ‘I used to love Gigi’s body, and now she just gave in.’ But I’m not skinny because I gave in to the industry,” noting that she’s had to make many lifestyle changes in terms of diet and exercise after being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease (an autoimmune disorder).
She also said that sometimes she takes the criticism to heart, but mostly tries to remind herself that life is about loving the skin you’re in and tuning out the noise.
Blake also chimed in, reminding readers to never compare themselves to the images they see in magazines, because basically everyone is Photoshopped.
We’re thanking these lovely ladies (both inside and out) for reminding us to love our bodies more and judge ourselves less.
