The star was speaking to Today’s Matt Lauer at the Time Magazine 100 Most Influential People event about what advice she’d give to her younger self.
‘I wish I had more confidence when I was younger,’ she said. ‘[I wasn’t] really insecure, I was just really shy.’
She then goes on to talk about love and unsuitable men, saying: ‘You think you know so much about love when you’re really young, and you look back later and probably realise it is not what you thought it was.’
Earlier this year, Kim, 34, revealed her struggle with her self-image to ELLE in our Confidence Issue: ‘It’s taken me a long time to be happy with my body and for my confidence to grow to what it is today. I grew up when the body to have was the tall, slim, supermodel one, like Cindy Crawford’s. No one looked like me.
'It’s good to break the mould and recreate one. I’m an Armenian girl, I have shape, and it turned out people liked that. That makes me feel good about myself and about other women for being so supportive. I am a confident woman, but I didn’t just arrive confident – it has built over the years and that is a big part of who I am now.’
Well, that certainly explains her figure-celebrating outfit choices of late. Watch the video now…
