Here is What more Bella Hadid Shared about her Childhood.
‘Growing up, I felt it was normal that I had this chronic anxiety and disassociation, sobbing every day and not knowing who I was,’ Bella told the i-D magazine.
“Whether it was eating issues or smoking a pack of Marlboros since I was fourteen, I was like, ‘Oh, this is what all the kids are doing.'”
“I realised it may have been me trying to figure out why I was feeling that way.” In actuality, all I required was treatment.”
She goes on to explain how she suffered from body dysmorphia in the early stages of her modeling career, saying, “During that phase of my life, I was so out of the body, disassociating so much… I was so bewildered by what people saw of me.”
Aside from modeling, Bella will make her acting debut this year in the Hulu series Ramy. The plot revolves around a first-generation American Muslim divided between his family’s culture and American society.
Bella said she appreciated being on set, where she stated there were a lot of other individuals of Palestinian descent, which she isn’t used to.
‘It was really, very amazing to go onto a set and see several Palestinians, Arabs, and people that are cut from the same fabric as me,’ she added.
For the uninitiated, her father, Mohamed Hadid, is a Palestinian Jordanian real estate tycoon, and her mother, Yolanda Hadid, is a Dutch former model who reared Bella, Gigi, and Anwar in Santa Barbara, California before moving to Beverly Hills.
