In recent months, we've seen a wave of celebrities writing off unrealistic beauty standards and embracing their body hair in selfies and even red carpet photos. Berry admitted that growing up, she was slightly embarrassed of the hair that grew on her body, detailing the few tricks she employed to remove it.
"I used to use depilatory creams on my lip, and I would burn myself every time, and it was so frustrating for me because I didn't really have any other choices," she said. "I wasn't going to shave my lip with my big razor, so I would do this to myself and it would be so frustrating. And the very thing I was trying to get rid of — this dark mustache — would then leave a dark burn that would last six months. I'd be trying to shave my little side burns. Shaving my legs as a kid, I would cut and nick them — I still have a few nicks on my shins that came from the first times I ever tried to shave and I dug the razor into my shin bone."
These days, Berry approaches the topic of body hair with the same sort of "you do you" attitude as most celebs, recognizing that whether or not you remove the hair is a deeply personal choice.
"Do whatever makes you feel like your best self," she said. "Culturally, we all come from different places where certain things are deemed acceptable or beautiful or not, and we all have to decide what makes us feel good. That's the Flawless mentality: put your best self forward, and whatever that is, you decide it."
