When the Gossip Girl alum brought up the subject of Internet trolls, Zayn Malik's ex responded:

"Yeah, and most of it is just nonsense. But it can still hurt. Nowadays, people are quick to say, 'I used to love Gigi's body, and now she just gave in.' But I'm not skinny because I gave in to the industry. When I had a more athletic figure, I was proud of my body because I was an amazing volleyball player and horseback rider. But after discovering that I have Hashimoto's [an autoimmune disease], I needed to eat healthy and work out. It was weird as a teenager, dealing with this when all of my friends could eat McDonald's and it wouldn't affect them."

Blake inquired about Gigi's experience of being body-shamed for various weights:

"You've been on both sides of it. You were body-shamed for being 'too big' when you first started modeling. And now you're body-shamed for being 'too skinny.'"

The former athlete said of her old body compared to now:

"If I could choose, I would have my ass back and I would have the tits I had a few years ago. But, honestly, we can't look back with regret. I loved my body then, and I love my body now. Whoever is reading this, I want you to realize that three years from now you will look back at a picture from this time period and be like: 'Wow, I was so hot. Why did I feel so bad about myself because of some stupid thing someone said?'"

Hear, hear!
