Tara Reid: I’m fine with figure

Tara Reid doesn't think her body looks bad despite the criticism she receives.

The Sharknado actress is often critiqued by the media for her slim frame. But the 38-year-old insists that she is happy with who she is and how she looks.

"It's ridiculous. I'm fine with my body," she told British Star magazine. "I don't think it looks bad at all. People try to find something negative, but I'm totally comfortable in my own skin."

In 2006 Tara admitted to having liposculpting and work done on her breasts as they were uneven. However she revealed the plastic surgery had "gone wrong" and resulted in deformity, which her new plastic surgeon is working to correct the problems. This was all well documented in the media, as has her weight, with many publications claiming she is too skinny.

"That's my genetics, it's how I'm made," she fumed. "I don't care. What am I supposed to do? They're always going to find something wrong with me."

However those close to her have claimed previously that Tara’s flat stomach is down to other measures.

"She survives on one meal a day and drinks gallons of Diet Coke and sparkling water, claiming it keeps her hunger at bay and that the bubbles fill her up," an insider said. "But then on some days she’ll wolf down pizza or ice cream.”

Despite doing her best to ignore the jibes, the American Pie star does admit that she still has days where she feels insecure.

"Of course, everyone has [insecurities] but at the end of the day it's who you are [that counts]" she explained. "I don't get stuck on it."
