Jacqueline Fernandez says that she punished herself for eating during her 20’s

Jacqueline Fernandez was seen giving an interview to Shilpa Shetty on her new show Shape of You with Filmy Mirchi. Jacqueline in the interview says that she used to punish herself for eating when she was in her 20s. Jacqueline is Shilpa Shetty's first guest in the show Shape of You.

Shilpa Shetty questioned Jacqueline if she ever changed her food habits when under stress, to which Jacqueline answered “ In my 20s I did go through quite a lot of eating issues. A lot. It happened because of my pageant days, I did not realize then but to be appearing on an international platform at the age of 19. That is when the pressure really got to me, I did not know how to handle it. Food became the enemy. That then continued in my 20s and continued being in front of the camera.” She further adds: “Like how I am going to look in front of the camera. It was like you would punish yourself for eating. But, I was blessed that I was able to overcome it. Slowly, it took time. There would be times when I would go for months and would be okay and then something would happen, and I would go back into the habit. I was quite horrible actually, but it was definitely something that made me stronger and much more aware of food.”

Jacqueline will be soon be seen starring with Akshay Kumar, Arshad Warsi, Pankaj Tripathi, and Kriti Sanon in their upcoming film Bachchchan Paandey, which is releasing on Friday 18th March 2022 in the theaters.
