Lily Aldridge Opens Up About Being Trolled Online & Pressures of Motherhood

Lily Aldridge is on the cover of PorterEdit‘s latest issue, out now.

Here’s what the 32-year-old model and Victoria’s Secret Angel had to say:

On being trolled online: “People do troll me a lot. I remember the first time I was ever paparazzied, I actually couldn’t believe anyone knew who I was, and was like ‘Oh my God!’ But then reading what people were saying about me broke my heart. They were saying these horrible things; horrible, horrible things to say to a lady. I was just walking down the street! It was my first experience of that and it shifts the way you think when your photo is taken – you start to think what the photographers’ motivations are, what are people going to say… So the older I get, I just try not to take it personally, but I am still working on that. I never reply but often want to so bad!”

On being told she wasn’t cool enough to do high fashion: “My career has been such an evolution, it felt like such slow progress. In the beginning, I was sad that people in fashion didn’t think I was ‘cool’ and that was tough. We all have so many different sides to us, different dimensions, so I was typecast as ‘commercial’ and therefore not fashion or edgy.”

On the pressures of motherhood and how it changes your body: “It’s been a while now since I had that moment of having to get back in shape [after giving birth], but there should be no judgement, everybody’s journey is different. Of course, as I get older my body is changing, I’m a woman, but I love it. I love working out and I love being healthy but I don’t judge myself so much; I don’t care if I have a six-pack any more. I am inspired by all these amazing women who have fuller bodies and don’t care about cellulite. I have cellulite, too, and I have stretch marks. When I was younger I would be like, ‘Oh, my abs need to be firmer’; now I look back and I’m like, ‘You were crazy! Your abs were gorgeous!’”
