In Hollywood, even the beautiful women like Julie Bowen have self-image issues. For Bowen, specifically, her problems started while working on a soap opera.
"I worked on a soap early on. Women in Hollywood are tiny, but women in soap operas are the tiniest people alive! I have laid eyes on Susan Lucci, and if she turns sideways, you can't see her."
Bowen described how disheartening it was when she went to wardrobe and couldn’t fit into the clothes.
"All the clothes were designed for girls with tiny waists and boobs. I was the exact opposite. I'm a normal-sized girl, and no matter how skinny I get, I don't have a waist. It gave me a lot of insecurities."
Even though she escaped the skinny world of soap operas, she was unable to shake working with extraordinarily beautiful women, such as Modern Family co-star Sofia Vergara.
"There are days when I'm like, 'Hey, you look pretty good.' But I work with Sofia Vergara. You can have your very best day, and then you walk in and look at her and you go, 'Okay, now that's just superhuman’. She's extraordinarily beautiful, smart and funny. I don't look bad, but I don't look like Sofia Vergara, and that's okay."
You’re being modest, Julie! You’re gorgeous as well, and you have an extremely healthy outlook on beauty!
