“Well, I am entering my fifties, so your body confidence, at this age, is not that good,” she said.
Interestingly enough, Hayek sounded a lot more confident about her body last year during an interview with Net-a-Porter’s The Edit.
“I was always borderline chubby, because I like my food and, frankly, I like my wine. I have to say, I’m pushing 50 but I feel great. I looked worse in my youth! I’m in good shape right now.”
But feeling confident with one’s body is a daily struggle. You might feel amazing one day and not so great another. Hayek even admitted that when talking about coming to terms with her body image as she’s grown older.
“I think it depends on the day, for everybody, there’s some days you say, ‘This is it,’ and you love it. Then there are days when you go, ‘This can not be it! Is this really it?’ So I think it’s up and down all the time!”
Most of us can totally relate to what Hayek has experienced. Even the most confident woman has her days when she just doesn’t feel that great about herself, and that’s okay. What’s even worse than having a bad day is beating yourself up about it. It’s all just part of the process and the more we learn to accept our flaws and our imperfections the better we’ll ultimately feel. See celebrities are just like us (minus the fancy-schmancy lifestyles).
