Bella Hadid Opens Up About Her Insecurities

And why she's never smiling in photos.

Bella Hadid's serious runway expression makes her look like she's not afraid of anything. But there's another, more relatable side to her signature stare. She recently told The Guardian she has trouble smiling because she feels awkward posing for photos.

"People meet me sometimes and say: 'You’re so different to what I expected.' People always tell me I seem mean or intimidating on social media. But I really love engaging with new people," she said. "I feel uncomfortable, sometimes, smiling in front of the camera. It actually took me until probably this year to really understand my face."

Bella also recently talked to The Telegraph about the more challenging aspects of her profession. She said she went from "just speaking to her horses and her mother" to become a celebrity more quickly than she was prepared for. "I feel like I’ve rushed into becoming a woman, so now I just want to be a teenager again," she said.

If she looks more self-assured than she is, then, maybe that's because she's good at her job. But deep down, she's got many of the insecurities other 20-year-olds do.
