Miley Cyrus has completely embraced reinvention. It's evident that she loves herself—she's totally cool and smart and creative. But was this transformation out of necessity? In a new interview with Marie Claire, Cyrus admits the set of her childhood program, Hannah Montana, wasn't all fun and games. In fact, it caused her some body dysmorphia. She didn't hold back,

"I was made to look like someone that I wasn’t, which probably caused some body dysmorphia because I had been made pretty every day for so long, and then when I wasn’t on that show, it was like, Who the f— am I?"

She continues,

"From the time I was 11, it was, ‘You’re a pop star! That means you have to be blonde, and you have to have long hair, and you have to put on some glittery tight thing.’ Meanwhile, I’m this fragile little girl playing a 16-year-old in a wig and a ton of makeup. It was like 'Toddlers & Tiaras'. I had f—ing flippers."
