Looking at celebrities, it doesn’t even occur to us that these flawless and confident people can suffer from complexes just like us. But they do. They are ordinary people with their own problems and insecurities. Some stars try to fix their physical flaws or at least deflect attention away from them. But others talk openly about aspects of their appearance that they find less attractive. And by doing so, show everyone that there are no perfect people in the world.

Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner has felt insecure about her thin lips for years. She turned to fillers, corrected the shape of her lips by using cosmetics. But everything changed when the woman had children.

“It’s made me love myself more. I see my features in my daughter and my son now, but you know, my daughter looks like me,” she shared. “I get to see my beauty in her, and it’s made me love myself more for sure. Beauty is always changing for me.”

Demi Lovato

During their appearance on The Ellen Show, the former Disney star shared a harrowing account of their battle with eating disorders, attributing it to the management they had at the time. The pop star described how their hotel room phones were confiscated to prevent them from ordering room service for meals, and all forms of fruit were kept away from them.

Fortunately, the situation improved when they acquired a new management team, which eliminated these restrictions, allowing them to regain control of their choices.

The star, who many people think looks perfect, is very critical of... the size of her head, which is why she often wears her hair loose or makes voluminous hairstyles. Megan said on her Instagram, “I never wear my hair up because my head is the size of a tiny edamame bean, but this happened and we’re all okay. Baby steps.”

Kate Hudson

The actress is always honest about her appearance insecurities and how she deals with them. She says, “I can look at a picture of Gisele [Bündchen] all day long and say, ’I’ll never have legs that long or lips that big. “You have to honor who you are.” Besides, she said that when she was at school, she was laughed at because of her ears, so she tried to hide them under her hair.

Cameron said that for a long time, she was the victim of social pressure on women about aging, and she used a lot of rejuvenating products, and it took her quite some time to accept herself and the natural things happening to her body and face.

At the moment, Diaz doesn’t use any beauty products and doesn’t try to look younger than she is, “I literally do nothing. I like never wash my face.”

Selena Gomez

Gomez has always been open about the criticism she hears about herself and said that it was painful when it was about her body. She was insecure when her weight started to change due to health issues, “Some days, I like what I see. Other days I’m like, ’I’m not even going to bother.’”

The singer looks quite confident, but comments from the internet made her feel really uncomfortable, “I remember being made aware of my looks and my body in a way that I had never been. I remember all these kids online were like, “She’s got really far-apart eyes”. I remember being like, “Whoa! How did I get all this way without knowing I had far-apart eyes?” she said.

The British singer is very critical of his appearance and he admits that his imperfect body is the result of his bad food preferences, “I was never really happy with my image, and then I realized it was because I was eating fried food every day.” Sheeran recommends being less critical of yourselves and not exhausting yourselves with working out, but just eat good food.

Priyanka Chopra

At the beginning of her career, Chopra had a lot of insecurities, and it was her producer to blame for. She remembers, “Before I became an actor, I met a producer about the possibility of acting. I was a beauty pageant winner at that time, Miss World. And he said that everything was wrong about me.”

But she decided not to change her appearance to match all the beauty standards, and instead, she just accepted herself.

It took the singer 4 years to accept her body while she was treating her eating disorder. “I realized being healthy is the most important thing I can do for myself. Now I’m trying to embrace the skin I’m in. It’s difficult sometimes. Every day, I have to look in the mirror and make the choice to be kind to myself. This is who I am — I have to love that”, she said.

The star was really insecure over the trait there’s no way to change — being short. “I used to have a complex about being short. But now I love that I’m 5’2. I’m strong, and that feels really good to me”, she said.

The star’s confidence also took a hit at the very beginning of her career. She remembers, “I was young. It was just the kind of stuff that actresses have to go through. Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight.” She developed some insecurities, it took her a long time to get rid of.

Ashley Graham

Even though Graham is the icon of the body positivity movement and an inspiration for millions of plus-size women, she admits that her fight with insecurities is far from over. “I still have mornings when I wake up and feel fat or I feel my cellulite is really kicking that day. I have to look myself in the mirror, and I take my own advice and I talk to those different parts. I tell myself I am beautiful. I tell myself I am bold and brilliant. I just look at myself and say, ’Slay girl’”, she said.

Sharon Stone

Even though the 64-year-old star still hears good things about her appearance and looks quite confident, she talks about her flaws in an ironic way, “I’m aware that my butt looks like a bag of flapjacks. But I’m not trying to be the best-looking broad in the world.”

Jessica Simpson

The star is very demanding of herself, and she thinks that accepting yourself and working on your imperfections is a never-ending process. She says, “I do love my legs, but my favorite physical attribute is my nose, because it’s not perfect. Recently, since I’ve worked out so hard, I’m also loving my stomach — knowing I grew babies in it, and then having to go through a transformation and just owning it.”

Billie Eilish

In an interview, the singer revealed that the reason why she always wears baggy, oversized clothes is because she never felt comfortable with her figure. She attributed it to the perfect bodies she constantly saw on social media, magazines. This made her start to doubt herself.

Luckily, Billie delved deep into the issue and then shared with the press, “I know the ins and outs of this industry, and what people actually use in photos, and I actually know what looks real can be fake.”

It may seem like idle chatter or a reason for loud press headlines. But in fact, when celebrities talk openly about their complexes, show themselves as non-ideal ordinary people, it inspires confidence in millions of people around the world. After all, if the stars are not ideal, why should we strive for standards? It is much more important to feel just happy with all our cute imperfections.
