Khloe Kardashian admits that being compared with her famous sisters Kim and Kourtney has taken an emotional toll on her.
“I’ve always known that I’m not Kim and I’m not Kourtney — I’ve always been O.K. with that,” she told the UK edition of Cosmopolitan, while admitting, “I probably thought I was prettier before I entered the spotlight because being compared to somebody else every day does sort of beat up your spirit and soul.”
But the comparisons — and critiques — have made her a more confident woman.
“It’s made me stronger. I’ve gained another level of confidence,” the 28-year-old “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star told the June issue.
Kardashian talks about the public hits she took after her dad died and she piled on the pounds.
“I was quickly criticized for not being a cookie-cutter sister like Kourtney and Kim. I lost about 30lbs [in 2009] before I did ‘Kourtney And Khloé Take Miami.’ I was feeling so good about myself and I was still so critiqued. I thought, ‘Oh, my gosh, if I’m not good enough now…’ And that’s when something clicked in my brain: I have to do whatever is good for me… I feel that I’m healthier [now], but I don’t think I’m prettier thinner.”
Kardashian has recently slimmed down again but says she’ll never be stick-thin.
“I don’t expect to be a size 2 nor do I want to be. I’m 5-foot-10-inches, and I like being curvy, but I also like being toned.”
