  • Bella Hadid has opened up about her plastic surgery regret in a new interview with Vogue.
  • The 25-year-old model tells the publication that she wishes she had not gone through with her nose job at 14, saying: "I wish I had kept the nose of my ancestors".
  • Bella also spoke candidly about her struggles with depression and being compared to her older sister, Gigi Hadid.

In an interview with Vogue, Bella Hadid opens up about getting a nose job at 14, saying she now regrets her decision.

"I wish I had kept the nose of my ancestors," the model tells the publication, adding: "I think I would have grown into it."

While she speaks candidly about having plastic surgery on her nose, Bella says rumours that she has had several other procedures done are not true.

"I have never used filler. Let's just put an end to that. I have no issue with it, but it's not for me. Whoever thinks I've gotten my eyes lifted or whatever it's called - it's face tape! The oldest trick in the book."

The 25-year-old admits that the constant negative criticism has resulted in her suffering from imposter syndrome. 

"I've had this impostor syndrome where people made me feel like I didn't deserve any of this. People always have something to say, but what I have to say is, I've always been misunderstood in my industry and by the people around me," she said.

In the feature, Bella touches on the depression she suffered while working, saying she would "wake up every morning hysterical and in tears". 

The model also opened up about being compared to her older sister, Gigi Hadid. 

"I was the uglier sister. I was the brunette. I wasn't as cool as Gigi, not as outgoing. That's really what people said about me. And unfortunately when you get told things so many times, you do just believe it. I always ask myself, how did a girl with incredible insecurities, anxiety, depression, body-image issues, eating issues, who hates to be touched, who has intense social anxiety- what was I doing getting into this business?" she sais.

"But over the years I became a good actress. I put on a very smiley face, or a very strong face. I always felt like I had something to prove. People can say anything about how I look, about how I talk, about how I act. But in seven years I never missed a job, cancelled a job, was late to a job. No one can ever say that I don't work my ass off."
