Reality Check: Lily Allen Still Insecure About Her Weight

Last year, Lily Allen slimmed down four dress sizes by using hypnosis. Might sound strange, but it "reprogrammed her brain" to love eating healthier food and working out at the gym.

She's been able to maintain her lean figure, but it looks like this singer still has insecurities about her weight. To hear what she said in a recent interview,


According to People:

"My mum always told me, 'You're beautiful, you're my beautiful little girl,' and then suddenly I wasn't. I read all the stuff that people were writing about me and I started to get a different view. I mean, I never thought I was a supermodel or anything, but I didn’t think I was quite as unattractive as people were saying! I just thought, ‘Maybe if I'm not fat, then people won't call me ugly.'"

It's sad that Lily felt she had to lose weight just so people would think she was attractive. Even though she looks great, I guess once you hear negative comments, it's tough to forget them. The good news is that now she's eating right and exercising, and this 23-year-old has even taken a break from drinking. Hopefully this healthy lifestyle will stick, and feeling good is bound to make her feel good about herself.
