British actress Emma Watson has the looks and the body of a top model. However, Emma struggled in accepting her body image for a long time.
One of the highlights of Emma Watson's interview for the October 2012 issue of Glamour UK magazine is about her body image. Emma shared that she had a problem with her body image, especially with her weight.
"My weight has fluctuated between a size 6 and a 10." Watson told the October 2012 issue of Glamour UK. "When you're growing, your body is still figuring itself out and it takes a while to settle down."
Emma runs, does yoga, dances and plays tennis, once idealized the rail-thin physiques of fashion models before realizing it wasn't a realistic or healthy look for her.
"I've accepted my body shape more as I've got older. I went through a stage of wanting to have that straight-up-and-down model look, but I have curves and hips, and in the end you have to accept yourself as you are," Emma said.
Emma sympathizes to young girls who feel unconfident of their body image saying that the pressure is coming from each other. "I think women feel so much pressure these days and it can turn us against each other. But we really damage our own confidence when we put ourselves down, so I try not to," the British actress wisely said.
Emma also shared some tidbits about her relationship. Emma is dating a fellow Brown University student Will Adamowicz. Last week, Emma was seen strolling the London streets with her boyfriend and bravely showed some PDA.
The couple met when they were studying together at Oxford. They were first photographed smooching at the Coachella Music Festival in April.
"I wish someone had told me at 15: 'You accept the love that you think you deserve.' I would have approached my relationships completely differently if they had," says Watson. "I like this idea of quality control--that we don't have to accept just anyone into our lives.
