“I wished for that boyish Gisele body!” “They called me bubble bath!”
Brooklyn Decker and Marissa Miller, two smoking-hot women, are the latest of the supermodels who confessed to having body image issues when they were younger. Both curvy, their early insecurities have come from being voluptuous, an obvious asset now that they have become renowned lingerie models.
Brooklyn shares “People made fun of me and called me a boy! I remember praying for boobs and a butt. Luckily, I grew into myself and got curves, but when I was first modeling, I wished for that boyish Gisele body again! When I moved to New York, I was always with other aspiring models. There were bingers and purgers, and everyone watched each other eat. It freaked me out. I did juice fasts and crazy diets and ended up gaining weight.”
Marissa’s story goes “They called me ‘bubble butt’ – but I’m over it!” She and a friend in high school “refused to do squats at volleyball practice because we didn’t want (our butts) to get any bigger.”
So how did they get over their insecurities? Healthy diet, workouts, and TIME.
A sought-after Sports Illustrated model and with a budding acting career, happily married Brooklyn Decker is now an advocate of healthy eating. “Eating is more fulfilling if you talk about what you should eat rather than what you shouldn’t. Instead of worrying about what foods might have too much fat or sugar, think, Oh, I should eat these blueberries for the antioxidants.”
Marissa Miller, top Victoria’s Secret Angel, has matured to become a role model of workouts. “Muscle starts to disappear as you age, I’ve discovered. I love my butt and want to make sure it stays where it is. I was just talking to that same friend, and we were laughing because now all we want to do is lots of squats to keep our rear ends curvy and feeling strong.”
