The 21-year-old star might have every designer contract, the most beautiful boyfriend in the game and a superstar group of girlfriends (ahem, Kendall Jenner), but that doesn't make her impervious to self-confidence struggles.

Although Hadid had a boost in the fashion industry (mom Yolanda also modeled), she spent years defending her curves to casting agents.

She explains,

Gigi says modeling hasn't been an easy ride for her. Although she's primarily comfortable posing for advertisements and editorials, she's had to take her bod to the runway as part of her 9-to-5 work grind.

It's challenging to put your body out there for others to critique and to realize you'll always have to push yourself harder to stay on top of the fashion game.

She says,

Quite the inspirational line, right? I can imagine it emblazoned over a photo of a kitten dangling from a tree limb, stuck up on a college dorm room wall somewhere.

Jokes aside, Gigi's interview is the real advantage of being a Millennial role model.

She can be honest about her failings, and they make her a person even more worth respecting because it hasn't all been roses in her career.

From the outside, everyone's life seems easier than yours. But even the ladies running the game can't help but feel insecure occasionally.
