In an interview with the popular magazine, Cosmopolitan India, Sameera Reddy opened up about body image issues. She talked about how she had struggled with her body and lost weight to look the way society wanted her to. Sameera even mentioned that she started feeling insecure about her body after her pregnancy. Talking about the same, she said:

"Over the years, I have struggled with my body and body image. I lost a lot of weight to look the way I was expected to, and dated men who pointed out my flaws-which only made me feel worse. After my pregnancy, it was difficult to love myself because of my past insecurities."


In the same interview, Sameera even opened up about how her body changed after giving birth to her kids. The actress further talked about the importance of loving yourself and shared that self-worth is the most important thing in life. Elaborating on the same, she shared:

"After giving birth, a woman is expected to get back in shape within months, which is unrealistic. I still have a floppy, saggy stomach, which no amount of exercising has helped....if I could go back in time, I would tell my younger self to work on her self-worth."
