Bella Hadid Denies Getting Lip Fillers Amid Endless Plastic Surgery Rumors

By  | 

Bella Hadid is one of the most stunning people on the planet, but many people don’t think her looks are 100% natural. The 21-year-old model has faced plastic surgery rumors basically since she started getting famous and now she’s setting the record straight once and for all.

“People think I’m very confident, but I really had to learn how to be. People think I got all this surgery or did this or that,” she tells InStyle magazine. “And you know what? We can do a scan of my face, darling. I’m scared of putting fillers into my lips. I wouldn’t want to mess up my face.”

It’s taken Bella some time to become comfortable in her own skin, admitting that she felt awkward about her “big hips” and “weird face” when she was growing up.

She recalls, “I had a small waist and big hips and was kind of chubby. I love them now, but I was always self-conscious of my hips — whereas my sister had a six-pack and was very athletic. And I thought I had such a weird face. I remember very distinctly getting bullied because of my features.”

The model says it’s taken her a “long time to learn not to listen” to haters who criticize her appearance and personality online.

“I turn my phone off and remember that the people around me are the only ones whose opinions I really care about. Why would I read those comments? They are usually coming more for my character than for my face, which is more hurtful. […] I’ve learned that people are going to hate you and there’s nothing you can do about it except be yourself and love yourself. But I feel people’s energy very intensely. Often I think, ‘I just want to meet you and tell you I’m not a bad person. You don’t have to be mean to me.”
