Valerie Bertinelli Tearfully Talks About Body Image in a New Video

Valerie Bertinelli is opening up about body image in a tearful Instagram video.

The 61-year-old actress, best known for One Day at a Time and Hot in Cleveland, had a bad body image day ahead of the holidays and she discussed it in an emotional video.

“I’m standing out in the rain because I’m doing my best to distract my mind from spiraling to a place of self-loathing, because I saw a picture of myself today that made me want to do that,” Valerie said.

She continued, “I am not where I want to be right now, body-wise. I don’t know if I ever will be, but when I see it right in front of me, it really does send me down that path. And I am doing my best to be positive and more full of joy and hopefully my body will follow along. I’m not there yet.”

Valerie is trying not to focus on her imperfections anymore.

“We can all give ourselves permission to feel joy, be intentional about it, and remember to be grateful,” she said. “I am grateful, even through all the mess. ‘Cause there’s still good in all the mess.”

Valerie recently had a big change in her personal life.
