Bella Hadid has been absolutely crushing it as of late.
Just last week it was announced that she’d be making her debut on the angelic runway of this year’s fabled Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
But with great power, comes great responsibility. It’s a widely known fact that women chosen to walk in the prestigious lingerie show are expected to train their already ridiculous rigs into their absolute toightest forms.
Speaking candidly to People during one of her VS fittings, Hadid said that she has “accidentally” lost more weight than she’d planned to while prepping for the show.
“My weight fluctuates so much,” she said. “I really didn’t mean to [lose weight]. Like I want boobs. I want my ass back. But it’s not my fault. My weight fluctuates and so does everybody’s and I think that if people are gonna judge, that’s the worst you can possibly do because everybody is different.”
It’s a bit of a case of damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
“I worked out so hard and everybody is like, ‘Oh, she looks so skinny blah, blah, blah,” she said. “But I think that if you just stick to something you can really achieve so much. I’ve been eating hard protein every day, and working out for three hours every day. It’s crazy but I think that you know if you set your mind to something I think you can succeed.”
“I like to eat healthy and not eat crazy plane food,” she said. “I like to still make sure my diet is good and I stay hydrated and stuff. That’s basically all I do.”
While it’s easy to look at someone like Bella Hadid and imagine she’s without flaws, she’s quick to remind us that even VS models feel like a sack of potatoes sometimes.
“I think every single person in the world has insecurities,” she says. “It’s crazy because I think that when other people look at all of the VS models or all of the girls [who] are walking, they’re like, ‘They’re not human. They don’t have any insecurities.’ But I think every single girl [who’s] going to be walking probably has an insecurity.”
Hers? “I wish my ass was bigger,” she said.
She ended the interview reminding us all of what’s really important here:
“If you want to have a piece of bread, go have a piece of bread.”
Words to live by, those.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is set to air on December 5th.
