There, she revealed that she had overcome her mental health issues and was happy, sober and working on careers in both modeling and acting. Being in front of the cameras, she told the magazine, helped her feel better about her self-esteem.
Paris also explained to Rolling Stone, “Plenty of people think I’m ugly, and plenty of people don’t. But there’s a moment when I’m modeling where I forget about my self-esteem issues and focus on what the photographer’s telling me – and I feel pretty.” Her father had famously struggled with feeling comfortable in his body, and it seemed that that had been passed down to Paris.
