Actress Ileana D’Cruz has confessed in her recent interview that she suffers from body dysmorphia. She is on the way to overcome her insecurities about her body and appearance and still struggling. She now focusses on the good rather than her flaws.
Ileana told Hindustan Times that the problem with body dysmorphia is that “no matter what size you are, no matter what number you are on the scale, you will always find fault with yourself”. The problem is that one who suffers from this ends up asking people to validate their fears.
Ileana has realised over the years that nobody is perfect and she said that the moment one makes peace with that is the moment one actually gets to a better state of mind. She said, “When you embrace every bit of you as an entire whole that somehow makes you so much stronger and makes you so much more beautiful.”
She admitted that there are days when she looks at herself in the mirror and she feels honestly disgusted. “But the difference now is that I make it a point to look at myself in the mirror and find one aspect, one feature about me that I love or like,” she added. She thinks that everyone who struggles with accepting themselves should try this.
On the work front, Ileana will be seen in Unfair & Lovely with Randeep Hooda and The Big Bull that has Abhishek Bachchan.
