MUMBAI: Model and actor Gabriella Demetriades, who is actor Arjun Rampal's partner, recently opened up about facing body-shaming during her initial days as a model.
During an Instagram 'Ask Me Anything' session on Thursday she revealed many things. Recalling her modelling days, Gabriella said that the fashion industry wasn't as diverse in those days as it is today. When a fan asked Gabriella Demetriades, "Have you ever struggled with your body confidence/ image? any advice?" To this, the model-actress replied, "Yes, sadly the fashion industry wasn't as diverse as it is today. I would be told all the time I'm not tall enough, my hips are too big, my thighs too thick, basically whatever they didn't like. It took me a long time to not place my worth on those things."
Another fan asked her, "Your skin is so perfect, looking so healthy what's your secret?" While giving a closer and better glimpse of her face, Gabriella wrote, "I still have some pigmentation from pregnancy but I feel no alcohol, lots of sleep and exercise and a good routine (washing your face, sunscreen, moisturiser when needed and lots of Vitamin C) has really helped me." She also shared her favourite photos with Arjun Kapoor when a fan asked her for them.
Further, when a fan asked her the funniest thing her son Arik has ever done, she shared a clip of the little one holding a wiper in his hand and cleaning the floor. She wrote, "He is constantly entertaining me." Arjun and Gabriella had welcomed son Arik in July 2019. Arjun had announced Gabriella's pregnancy in April that year.
