Lindsey Vonn is an Olympic gold medalist and a gorgeous celebrity who is dating Tiger Woods, but even she goes through some insecurities regarding body image.
Last year’s Met Costume Gala in New York City was tough for her to attend for that reason, the 29-year-old confesses. Vonn told SELF in its latest issue:
“It was hard to go ... with people who eat lettuce and a Diet Coke for dinner. It's difficult to be at events with a room full of women who weigh half as much as you do,”.
She doesn’t want to be like those girls, though. That she makes clear.
“I don't envy them, though, because so many of them are skinny-fat. They have more cellulite than most people. I feel like I need to give them a cheeseburger."
"It's sexy and beautiful to be strong.”
Her boyfriend helps her stay strong, she said, and not just physically. With Vonn unable to compete in the 2014 Olympics, she's leaned on Tiger more than ever.
“He's helped me stay patient through rehab,” she said.
“Golf is all about patience. He helped me take it one day at a time. I'd say, ‘Why can't I do this? I want to!’ And he'd say, ‘You'll get your chance. It will come.’”
“We're good for each other. I don't know what he's learned from me, to be honest. But we push each other and help each other when we're down.”
You won't see her in Sochi, unfortunately, due to her knee issues ... but you can see tons of great Lindsey Vonn photos below and become very jealous of Tiger:
