After losing 12 pounds while training for her new film X:Men Apocalypse, Olivia Munn debuted a surprisingly slim new look, shocking her fans.
Though the actress was thrilled to be living a healthier life, she did experience a few unexpected downsides. She recently told People Style:
As I’ve tried to get healthier in my life, I’ve realized there are adverse effects to losing weight. I’m not very tall, so any weight that I had lost changed areas of my skin, like my neck. I could see different parts of my skin didn’t feel as, like, tight anymore and I think it’s just because it was excess [skin] because of the lost of weight.”
While excess skin is often discussed with more significant weight losses (think, the weight loss that occurs on The Biggest Loser), it’s rarely discussed in regards to the millions of women who hope to lose just a few lbs.
We love how honest Olivia was and how she admitted that losing weight didn’t give her the “perfect body,” as we often think it will.
And although she’s hoping to do something about the excess skin, she says she would never turn to Botox or cosmetic surgeries.
“Not that there’s anything wrong with it, but I believe that we, as women, should embrace our age and have no problem saying it. Sure, parts of my skin don’t feel as tight anymore. But we can’t control the day we were born.”
