Candice Swanepoel says she used to be ugly

Candice Swanepoel is rather attractive

Shocking news out of Hollywood today where it’s been revealed that a famous star wasn’t entirely comfortable with her body when she was a teenager. More at 11. From Fox:

“Victoria’s Secret” supermodel Candace Swanepoel earns millions modeling for the lingerie giant, even earning a place on this year’s top ten Forbes list for the highest-paid supermodels.  But it wasn’t so long ago that the 22-year-old considered herself far too unattractive for a career in front of the lens.

“For a very long time I was really, really skinny – I was like that for most of my life,” Swanepoel told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column at the Victoria’s Secret “What is Sexy?” launch in Los Angeles last week. “And it wasn’t until I was 17 that I started getting curves… I had braces, the whole lot. I was an ugly swan before.”

Wait, am I supposed to feel sorry for someone — whose wealth and fame is based solely on their appearance — because they didn’t look as beautiful during their teenage years as they do now? Welcome to the world the rest of us live in Candice. Except, for the rest of us, it wasn’t just high school where we had to suffer because of our looks — it’s our entire lives. Why just last week, my agent told me that I needed to tighten up my abs “just a bit” if I wanted to walk in the Cavalli menswear show next week in Milan. I’m so fat!
