"I was amazed at how naked the costumes were... I used to go out with not a lot of clothing on..." she said, adding that for a few of the outfits she couldn't even come out of the dressing room.

Still, the wife and mom is proud of her career, sharing that she never thought she would end up as successful as she is today.
"You grow in confidence the older you get. I've learnt to trust my instincts... I know what I'm good at and I know what I'm not so good at and I'm okay with that."
