Vidya Balan is certainly one actress who does not care what people feel about her and her looks! The actress has in the real sense accepted her body and has rocked it like a boss lady! However; Vidya reveals she was never always so comfortable in her skin.


In her interview to a leading daily; the Kahaani actor says during her days of criticism she also faced a lot of self doubt. " (There was) a part of my life, I was in a battle with my body. I was angry with it, hated it, and I wanted it to change, because I thought if my body changed, then I would be acceptable to everyone. I would be worthy of love. But even at my thinnest, when I managed to lose a lot of weight (it happened a few times) I realised that I wasn't fully acceptable to everyone. So really there's no point in trying to change yourself to suit others' needs and ideals." 


However; with all that put behind, Vidya says," I began to accept and respect my body, and it's been a long journey. I find myself happier, I feel beautiful. I think the best gift I have given to myself is that I won't let anyone make me feel differently about my body today."


While it is the norm of the industry is to make sure every actress is stick thin or has a hour glass figure with practically no inch of fat on her body. However; the Bhool Bhulaiya actress says she does not understand the whole concept of a women's weight being discussed. 


Speaking on the lines; Vidya, who will now be seen in Mission Mangal, alongside Akshay Kumar says," What amazes me is that people talk about the body so much. You enter a place and people are only having these conversations ‘Oh! You have lost weight...' ‘you have put on weight' ‘what diet are you on, what exercise regiment?'... it's so annoying really, it's so limiting. I honestly feel that I definitely don't enjoy these conversations, and I feel people talk about the body so easily, judge another's body, make comments, because it's visible, it's out there."


Vidya concluded saying," Why do we not turn around and tell these people, who fat shame us, that you should actually be ashamed because you have got such a small mind? Nothing you do can ever change that, exercise, diet, the right kind of sleep, maybe medication!... whatever can even change our body, but nothing can change your mind! (laughs) God bless you!"
