So, the Violet star said her friend suggested she reach out to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who is also expecting her second child with Jason Statham. “As if that’s what I need,” Munn remarked.
She added, “Rosie is great and I love Rosie, but that’s what I mean. I don’t have Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s body at all and that’s kind of… the first step in feeling like, ‘Oh if I am not handling maternity well, if I’m not looking chic and cool and effortless, and if my body is changing like this that means that I’m failing. That means that I’m already not doing things right.'”
For Munn, she dealt with body image struggles when she “first got into the public eye.” At the time, she said, she would hear criticism about her appearance and “try to own them myself” by laughing it off, though she would worry in secret.
“Being pregnant has brought up all those feelings because there is so much of like, ‘How am I supposed to do it right?'” Munn explained. “And I know there is no right, I understand that but it’s really hard, especially to have so many images in your face all the time of what truly looks like perfection.”
