Daisy Lowe says it has taken a long time for her to embrace her body but finally feels comfortable in her own skin.
Daisy Lowe is finally comfortable in her own skin.
The 25-year-old model admits it has taken her a decade in the fashion industry to embrace her figure and become body-confident because she is constantly surrounded by stick-thin girls.
She said: ''If you stand me next to a normal model I look like an elephant, and that's alright. It's taken me 10 years to say, 'I'm actually comfortable in my shape and I'm proud of being a woman and my feminine form.' It's tough - but I'm still only a size eight!
''I always say to my friends when they're worrying about their weight and pulling at their bodies, 'If I didn't do what I do for a living, I'd love to be a size 12 or 14 and have that curvy body with those amazing t*ts and that great a**e.' ''
Daisy is releasing her first cookery book on July 3, 'Sweetness & Light', a guide to whipping up low-calorie, gluten-free sweet treats in the kitchen.
The British beauty told the London Evening Standard newspaper: ''I've always loved cooking and I've always been a big eater. I've got the sweetest tooth ever - I love sugar.
''So I thought, 'Right, I'm going to do this without making myself feel sad and depriving myself of that treat.' ''
The actress spoke about raising her 11 year old daughter Matilda in the wake of Heath Ledger's death eight years ago.
