Halle felt she was ugly
“A magical thing happened when I turned 40 – a light sort of went off, and I felt more self-assured and confident, like I finally had the right to be authentic about who I am, to say what I want to say. I guess that comes with getting older. Now I’m at this point in my life where I’m happy with myself. It’s not because I have a really cute boyfriend or a great career, I just feel good about me. And if any one of those things should dissipate, I’d still be OK. That feels like a really good place to be.
Halle didn’t always feel this way. After she was voted one of the world’s sexiest women she said she still doesn’t see herself as a big star. “To be totally honest, most of the time I think I’m ugly. I see myself without make-up every morning and that’s why I don’t have illusions any more. I certainly don’t feel like a big star.” Journal fur die Frau
“When I was a kid, my mother told me that if you can’t be a good loser, you can’t be a good winner. If you can’t take criticism, then you don’t deserve the praise.” Razzie Awards
