Tara Reid ain't no fool. She knows what people say about her, she hears the whispers and sees the tabloids.
Even though it seems like it's been years since anyone really came down on her, Tara said she's still self-conscious about her body.
"I think when people are so hard on you, you start getting hard on yourself. You start getting a little paranoid. But you have to back off to a certain degree. What can you really change? Yes, there are a million things you would say you'd do different but you learn from those life lessons. That defines you as a character."
So she admits she may not have always made the best decisions in her life, but she's at least learned from her mistakes.
"Perhaps I haven't made the best decisions in the past, but at the time you don't know any different As you get older you can look back and says, 'Okay, I'm gonna learn from that experienced and grown from a lot of the experiences I've been through.'"
We're glad that she's turning negative criticism into a positive experience!
Way to make lemonade! (From lemons… that life handed you.) LOLz!
