Bella Hadid is opening up about the years-long rumors claiming that she's had plastic surgery.
In an interview with Vogue for their April 2022 cover story, the supermodel admitted that she's had plastic surgery, revealing she got a nose job at the age of 14. However, Bella said she regrets going under the knife.
She says, "I wish I had kept the nose of my ancestors. I think I would have grown into it."
Bell said, "People think I fully f---ed with my face because of one picture of me as a teenager looking puffy. I'm pretty sure you don't look the same now as you did at 13, right? I have never used filler. Let's just put an end to that. I have no issue with it, but it's not for me. Whoever thinks I've gotten my eyes lifted or whatever it’s called -- it's face tape! The oldest trick in the book."
Also in the profile, Bella opened up about physical and mental health struggles, including depression, anxiety and Lyme disease, as well as body image issues.
Bella also recalled how she was prescribed Adderall in high school for inattention, however, the medication, which is a known appetite suppressant, led to anorexia.
While she has a good relationship with food now, Bella expressed that "the dysmorphic feelings" have remained, admitting that, "I can barely look in the mirror to this day because of that period in my life."
Meanwhile, Bella also reflected on being compared to her sister Gigi and shared how it's affected her.
"I was the uglier sister. I was the brunette. I wasn't as cool as Gigi, not as outgoing. I always ask myself, how did a girl with incredible insecurities, anxiety, depression, body-image issues, eating issues, who hates to be touched, who has intense social anxiety -- what was I doing getting into this business?"
To make it, Bella said she became a "good actress" and never missed an appointment, fitting, or meeting for seven years despite her internal struggles.
