Bella Hadid goes so hard at the gym that she now has an “ab crack.” But all her exercising and dieting, likely in preparation for her first Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, caused the model to lose more weight than she wanted to. “I really didn’t mean to [lose weight]. Like I want boobs. I want my ass back. But it’s not my fault. My weight fluctuates and so does everybody’s and I think that if people are gonna judge, that’s the worst you can possibly do because everybody is different,” she told People.
Hadid says she lost weight “accidentally” by following a strict diet and workout plan. “I worked out so hard and everybody is like, ‘Oh, she looks so skinny blah, blah, blah,” she says. “But I think that if you just stick to something you can really achieve so much. I’ve been eating hard protein every day, and working out for three hours every day. It’s crazy but I think that you know if you set your mind to something I think you can succeed.”
Rob Piela at Gotham Gym, who also trains her sister Gigi Hadid, is the only person she will work out with. “He’s really the best,” says Hadid. Yep, just take one look at the gym’s Instagram feed and you’ll see just how intense this guy is. “I literally can’t work out with anybody. It has to be me and him. If I am working with other people, I freak out.”
Her other goal right now is feeling confident on the VS runway. “I think every single person in the world has insecurities,” she says. “It’s crazy because I think that when other people look at all of the VS models or all of the girls [who] are walking, they’re like, ‘They’re not human. They don’t have any insecurities.’ But I think every single girl [who’s] going to be walking probably has an insecurity.” For Hadid, hers is “I wish my ass was bigger.”
“I just hope when I am out there I am not too nervous about being in my lingerie,” she says. Based on this photo from her fitting, it looks like she has nothing to worry about–girlfriend looks AMAZING with wings!
