Lily Aldridge has admitted she gets targeted by cruel online trolls but has learned not to respond to their jibes.
Lily Aldridge's gets ''trolled'' a lot.
The 32-year-old supermodel was left ''heartbroken'' the first time she was subjected to cruel comments online but as she's got older, she's learned not to take the remarks personally but still has to fight back the urge to respond.
Speaking to NET-A-PORTER's weekly digital magazine, Porter, she explained: ''People do troll me a lot. I remember the first time I was ever paparazzied, I actually couldn't believe anyone knew who I was, and was like 'Oh my God!' But then reading what people were saying about me broke my heart.
''They were saying these horrible things; horrible, horrible things to say to a lady. I was just walking down the street!
''It was my first experience of that and it shifts the way you think when your photo is taken - you start to think what the photographers' motivations are, what are people going to say...
''So the older I get, I just try not to take it personally, but I am still working on that. I never reply but often want to so bad!''
The Victoria Secret model - who has five-year-old daughter Dixie with husband Caleb Followill - has a special ''bond'' with her fellow models Behati Prinsloo and Candice Swanepoel, because they had children at the same time.
She said: ''We [Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo and Candice Swanepoel] all had kids at the same time and we have this bond - it's a really nice community of model moms. I am so proud to be a mom, it's the greatest achievement in my life without a doubt.''
And Lily admitted being a parent has made her worry less about her figure and thinks people should be less judgemental.
She added: ''It's been a while now since I had that moment of having to get back in shape [after giving birth], but there should be no judgement, everybody's journey is different. Of course, as I get older my body is changing, I'm a woman, but I love it. I love working out and I love being healthy but I don't judge myself so much; I don't care if I have a six-pack any more.
''I am inspired by all these amazing women who have fuller bodies and don't care about cellulite. I have cellulite, too, and I have stretch marks. When I was younger I would be like, 'Oh, my abs need to be firmer'; now I look back and I'm like, 'You were crazy! Your abs were gorgeous!'''
