Supermodel and activist Bella Hadid did a photoshoot with Vogue US where she gave a lot of revelations including the rumor that she had done surgery, which the model said was true. Bella revealed that she had a nose job when she was 14 but regrets it now:

“I wish I had kept the nose of my ancestors. I think I would have grown into it.”

The model also rejected the rumors that she had other facial surgeries done like eye lift and lip fillers, and responded that she has often used tips like face tape to lift her eyebrows:

“I’m pretty sure you don’t look the same now as you did when you were 13, right? I have never used fillers. Let’s just put an end to that. I have no issue with it, but it’s not for me. Whoever thinks I’ve gotten my eyes lifted or whatever it’s called-it’s face tape! The oldest trick in the book. I’ve had this imposter syndrome where people make me feel like I don’t deserve any of this. People always have something to say, but what I have to say is, I’ve always been misunderstood in my industry and by the people around me.”

Bella Hadid also revealed that in high school she had consistently suffered from self-esteem issues and felt that she wasn’t going to be as successful as her elder sister Gigi, whom she thought was more cooler and outgoing:

“I was the uglier sister. I was the brunette. I wasn’t as cool as Gig, not as outgoing. That’s really what people said about me. And unfortunately when you get told things so many times, you just believe it. I always ask myself, how did a girl with incredible insecurities, anxiety, depression, body-image issues eating issues, who hates to be touched, who has intense social anxiety-what was I doing in the business?”

Touching upon her eating issues, Bella Hadid revealed that in high school she began starving herself when her psychiatrist diagnosed her with ADHD and prescribed her with Adderall for her inattention, and afterwards she also began relying on calorie counting apps to keep herself skinny:

“I was on a calorie-counting app which was like the devil to me. I’d pack my little lunch with three raspberries, my celery stick. I was just trying, I realize now, to feel in control of myself when I felt so out of control of everything else.”
