I've stopped trying to please everybody:" Ileana D'Cruz

  • Print


Actor Ileana D'Cruz is one of the few Bollywood celebrities, who have spoken up about depression and body image issues. Being an actor comes with a lot of responsibility, and they often have to be people that their fans look up to.
Ileana says that the pressure, especially to look good all the time, does get to her as a celebrity. "For someone who has had body issues, and doesn't consider herself attractive at all, it affects me even more. But I think right now, I have dealt with the fact that I will be seeing pictures of me which are not flattering. I will have people judging me on if I looked good on a particular day or not," she says.
She adds that initially, she also felt eager to impress everyone, but that's not the case anymore. "Early on, there was a constant urge to please everyone. I'd want to make sure I got good reviews wherever I went and in terms of whatever pictures I took. But I've realised that it's just not possible, and I have accepted the fact that you can't please everybody. I'd rather deal with that reality and move on," she opines.
The Barfi! (2012) actor had earlier revealed that she suffered from body dysmorphic disorder during her teenage years, and because of that, she also slipped into depression. With the growing demand for airport and gym looks of every celebrity, Ileana finds herself even more secluded today. "It's a little upsetting, and sometimes I do get a little aggressive as a result of some of these pictures. There are also times when you don't want to get a picture clicked, but you have to oblige the photographers.
