In addition to the autoimmune diseases that she’s been quite open about, as she’s grown up Bella Hadid has been a lot more comfortable discussing the mental health struggles she faces daily, too. As Insider notes, while appearing on her mom’s TV show “Making A Model,” Hadid admitted to going through a lot before she had to do interviews at the beginning of her career. While speaking to a contestant on the show she confessed, “I would literally start crying and shaking if I had to do interviews at red carpet events. It was really nerve-racking and it’s scary, and it’s not only you.”
In 2022, Hadid dove deeper into the topic, telling Vogue she went through a 3-year-long period during which she cried at least once a day due to her depression and anxiety. As she put it, “I wouldn’t show anybody that. I would go to work, cry at lunch in my little greenroom, finish my day, go to whatever random little hotel I was in for the night, cry again, wake up in the morning, and do the same thing.” To make matters worse, Hadid was often alone during this period, waking up and beginning the day with tears pouring down her face.
