Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is among fashion’s most premiere supermodels, but she isn’t immune to insecurity.
The supermodel dishes on the secrets to her top-notch selfie game in an interview with Glamour U.K. Huntington-Whiteley admits the Instagram selfie game isn’t as effortless as it looks. “Well, you need half an hour, you need great lighting, and you need to be prepared to take about 100 pictures of yourself, edit through 100 pictures of yourself and then filter them three times,” she confesses.
The 30-year-old supermodel also worries about how she carries herself online. “‘I try to be mindful of that when I’m posting pictures, but again, it’s part of what I do and I hope that people don’t feel… that my social media is too obnoxious,” she says.
And the soon-to-be mom totally recognizes the power she wields. She says she worries about “young girls out there who are really feeling insecure about their image and they scroll through and see this image of a supermodel looking amazing, reclining on a beach in a completely unrealistic pose or environment.”
“I can see how that would make people not feel good about themselves.”
But even she isn’t immune from envy and insecurity. “I can’t say that I’m immune to that,” she said about seeing other beautiful women on Instagram. “Sometimes I’m like, “F**k!” You know? That doesn’t make me feel great.”
It was confirmed in early February the model was pregnant with her and fiance Jason Statham’s first child.
