Ravishing beauty Ileana D'Cruz is always known for her glamour. It is her curvaceous body that made the youth drool over during her prime. Her hourglass figure made people go weak in their knees. She ruled Tollywood for a couple of years just with her beauty and there is no denying that face.

But a beauty of Ileana's level was also subjected to body shaming. She claims that she was criticized for her big butt right from the age of 12. During a recent interview, she stated, "I remember those days like it was yesterday. It's weird because it's a very deeply ingrained scar. I went through body-shaming right from the time I was 12. I had just hit puberty and growing up. You are hit with these weird comments. And people are passing comments about your body and saying, 'Oh My God, why is your butt so big?' And I am like, 'What do you mean?' You think you are fine and then suddenly you have random people saying things about you and you start to believe what they are saying. So I think it's a deeply ingrained scar because you are carrying it for so many years. It takes a lot of inner strength to tell yourself that what they are saying doesn't matter. What you feel about yourself is most important. And it's something I tell myself every single day."

She even claims that there will be at least 10 comments on her social media posts who criticize her looks and body shape. While they might have been a few who despise her looks, there are thousands and even lakhs who love and adore Ileana.
