Let Everything Wash Away
Nathalie Kelley, Hollywood’s next It Girl, knows she has to keep herself centered so she doesn’t “lose it” in her line of work. She also knows she’s in the center of all the body-shaming messaging that girls receive and needs to work against it.
As part of StylelikeU’s project “What’s Underneath,” Nathalie talks about how she deals with some of her insecurities on a daily basis, like how she is too Australian some days and way too Latina others. And even with her obvious beauty, she deals with the same rejection and body-shaming others, like Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez, have faced. “To be brutally honest,” she says, “I’ll acknowledge the fact that I’m scared of getting older and fading.”
By the 7:36 marker, Nathalie tells us exactly how she deals with haters…two big F Us.
It wasn’t easy getting to that place of strength. Nathalie has had to come to terms with her body and overcome her sense of shame after being sexually molested as a child. She eventually found her peace at the age of 18 after crawling into the water at the secluded shores of Peru. “I will just never forget that moment in the water, on beach, in Peru, in the country that I was born.”
