Bella Hadid talking about being ‘chubby’ as a teenager is just . . . well, come look at this

‘I had more insecurities than anybody’

It's hard to imagine Bella Hadid as anything other than a 16-year-old Carla Bruni, what with her youthful face and 100 percent plastic skin. But the supermodel is actually a wise, old 21-year-old, and has been for nearly half a year.

However, in an interview with Cosmopolitan this week, she told the magazine she's only only "recently" started feeling comfortable with her weight, adding that as a teen — which was two years ago, btw — she was chubby.

I was "chubbier growing up," she said, "I think I had more beauty insecurities growing up than anybody." The model claims there were a lot of things she "had to grow into."

Here are some photos of her during her 'chubby' years

To save you the time, I found a few pictures of the supermodel between the ages of 15 and 17 so that you'd be able to make your own judgments about how ~chubby she really was.

"Fake it till you make it, I guess," the Hadid said at the end of the interview.

But I'm pretty sure even when I'm 25 (it's going to be my hot year), I wont be half as fit as Bella during her "chubby" years.
