As a public figure and one of Netflix ’s newest stars, Danna Paola is accustomed to hearing all sorts of commentary about her body. However, the starlet has shared how she has begun receiving body-shaming comments once again. While on Sale el Sol, the Elite actress revealed how she has begun learning how to deal with the negative comments from critics geared toward her body.
“There will always be people who are going to criticize you, for better or worse, I’ve come to understand,” shared the 24-year-old. “It’s not easy, but I feel secure in myself and the woman that I am. For me, the most important thing is was to find the sense of self that I needed, and I have found that,” continued the actress.
The singer-actress shares that the negative comments are a common practice in the lives of artists, and that despite them, she will continue to share her photos on social media.
Danna also stated how through her platform as a celebrity, she wants to be a voice for those that have been affected by similar commentary via social media.
“Just because you are an artist it doesn’t mean that you need to sit down and take it. On the contrary — we are women and we have voices, and if I am seen as a role model, and I can help bring an end to this, I will,” stated the Elite actress.
Danna, who has been working for about 20 years, mentioned how beauty standards are getting more rigorous every day, but that regardless, she likes to stay true to herself.
“We live in an industry that asks us for something that isn’t real, we have to support what is real, support what people really identify with.”
