I’m not a beauty queen: How I’ve learned to be less self-conscious about my appearance
In the wake of the release of her first video, The Biggest Loser, Julia Louis-Dreyfus took to Twitter to clarify her intentions and message about being a beauty blogger.
I’m a very happy person, she wrote.
But the truth is I’m really a perfectionist and I hate myself for it.
I want to make the world a better place for all people, but I also want to be proud of my imperfections.
I am the ultimate perfectionist, Louis-Dozier wrote.
I do not like perfection.
I want to create beauty, not perfection.
The Bigest Loser was a smash hit, and in the weeks since, the actress has spoken candidly about the challenges she faced while shooting the video.
Louis-Didi was never shy about her personal struggles.
“I don’t have a lot of money, I have a very limited time, I’m trying to find the time and the right environment to really work on it,” she told BuzzFeed in an interview earlier this year.
“It was so difficult to do a video, and I’m just so happy that I did it, because it’s so personal to me.
And it’s such a great platform for me.”
Louis-Denreyfuss has said that her struggle was rooted in the fact that she’s not very confident, a trait that she believes helped her to grow as a person.
“The problem is, people think I’m too confident, too strong, too dominant,” she said in an Instagram video in October.
“And the truth of the matter is I am not.
I think I’ve always been a pretty humble person, and a very strong person, so I just have a more humble attitude toward myself.”
