Bella Hadid may be one of the world’s most famous models, but she’s still copped a lot of criticism about her looks. Now, the model has opened up about beauty, confidence and bullying in a recent interview with InStyle US.

Bella Hadid has shut down the plastic surgery rumours that run rampant about her.
“People think I got all this surgery or did this or that. And you know what? We can do a scan of my face, darling. I’m scared of putting fillers into my lips. I wouldn’t want to mess up my face,” she told InStyle.
But Bella hasn’t always possessed that level of confidence. In fact, growing up, she felt awkward and self-conscious compared to her older sister (model Gigi Hadid) who was always athletic and even had a six-pack.
“I thought I had such a weird face,” she said. “I remember very distinctly getting bullied because of my features.”
But through the years she’s learned to overcome her insecurities. And as a 21-year-old, she has a very mature attitude towards bullies and online trolls.
“I want to write them, ‘If you’re going through something, I want to be there for you.’ There’s obviously something deeper going on. I know it’s not about me personally,” she said. “We all have our stuff to overcome, and that’s what I want to preach to the kids these days. I went through a serious depression last year, and I think it stemmed from when I was younger and [being bullied by] the kids in school. And now, I guess I shouldn’t be as self-conscious—people tell me that every day—but it’s a personal thing. We all go through it because we’re human.”
