Millie Mackintosh: "Thin-Shaming Is Just As Bad As Fat-Shaming"
The gym-loving beauty has opened up about what annoys her when people comment on her body...
Millie Mackintosh is fed up of being accused of looking 'too thin', as she reveals her body has always looked this way.
Speaking to Women's Health mag the Made In Chelsea explaines how she loves her figure and doesn't think it's fair when people 'thin-shame' her.
"They’re commenting on my thigh gap and they accuse me of promoting it. But that’s how my legs have looked since I was a child, that is my body," she said.
"Thin-shaming is just as bad as fat-shaming…Women especially should be kinder to other women’s bodies. I don’t cry myself to sleep about it, but I don’t want people to think that’s some kind of body ideal I’m putting out there."
On why she decided to get fit, Millie added: "I think it was the pressure of being on TV. [At that time] I was eating takeaways a lot – I love rich food; I’ve never been one for a salad", she explained.
"I don’t weight myself or look at calories – I’m not really fussed about it', the gym lover said. 'I just love that feeling of getting stronger, being able to do something at the gym I couldn't do before."
The fashionista married Brit rapper Professor Green last year, and just knew he was the one straight away.
"I was just so sure. I knew early on this was who I was going to marry," she gushed.
"I can look back when I’m pregnant in the future and go, "Yeah, that was my body and I can get that back." I’d like two kids before I’m 30 and I’m 25 now. I do get broody."
Though Pro Green is taking drastic action as he thinks about starting a family, making sure they do it the right way.
"Now I'm starting to think about having children, I see a psychotherapist. it's the best thing in 31 years I have done."
"I go in, sit down for an hour, leave exhausted," he told the Mirror.
"I don't want to pass on any of my issues or my troubles to my kids. So I need to get sorted out."
