Rihanna Says She Needed To Learn How To Be Comfortable With Her Body Image For Movie Role
We’ve been hearing a lot about Rihanna lately – but it’s fair to say that the most bizarre story so far is that Rihanna has trouble liking her body image. Earlier this week, RiRi cleared the air and opened up about struggling with her body image and looking different than other people, she says she needed to get to accept the way she looked whilst shooting the movie, Battleship as she constantly thought she was looking too big.
“I mean I don’t think anybody really is 100%. I mean you get comfortable with the fact that that’s your body and that is what it is – that I had to learn. After doing that on set, I started doing that in the mirror because it was like, ‘OK, whatever, I feel fat today’, but what can you really do about it? You have to just accept your body,” she said to the Daybreak morning show.
Rihanna who also recently called in to KIISfm to speak to Ryan Seacrest also addressed her body weight too saying that fans have been worried the star is losing too much weight – perhaps due to starvation – yet she quickly denied those rumors, adding that she is ‘just too busy’ to find time to relax and enjoy a meal but she does eat.
She continued: “You may not love it all the way, but you just have to be comfortable with it, comfortable with knowing that that’s your body.You just want something else that someone else has, but that doesn’t mean what you have isn’t beautiful, because people always want what you have, and you always want what they have. No-one is ever 100% like, ‘Yes, I’m the bomb dot com – from head to toe!'”
Earlier this week, Rihanna slammed a reporter with the “evil eyes” as she asked if we would be seeing Ashton Kutcher with her anytime soon. Although Rihanna laughed it off, she seemed utterly annoyed as she replied: “W0w, how disappointing was that question”.
