Model-turned-actress Patsy Kensit is enjoying her newfound curvy body after spending years starving herself to impress her string of rockstar lovers.

In the 1990s, the 37-year-old beauty struggled to maintain a slim look while married to Simple Minds frontman Jim Kerr, and later Oasis frontman LIAM GALLAGHER.

But at last Kensit is happy with her natural look, and admits there is more to life than image.

She enthuses, "I'm happier now than I've been for as long as I can remember. I was just too thin. I wasn't thin, healthy and happy. I was thin because I just didn't eat.

"It's not a good way to be and it's not worth risking your health to have a body like that. I've got my confidence and self-esteem back - and I have completely changed my attitude about the things that used to be so important to me.

"I want to grow old gracefully and I like my lines because I've earned them."
