"I get insecure about my eyes because I once read a blog comment that said, 'Her eyes are so small.' I thought, Are my eyes small? Oh no - they are!," admits Taylor Swift.

Body insecurity is one of the personal topics that Taylor Swift addressed during a recent interview with Glamour Magazine for its August 2009 issue, to which she admitted "I get insecure about my eyes." Revealing the reason, she explained, "... because I once read a blog comment that said, 'Her eyes are so small.' I thought, Are my eyes small? Oh no - they are!"

Asked if she does read blog comments despite the fact that many celebrities claim to avoid them, Taylor opened up, "I've stopped reading the comments below news articles and on gossip blogs because those are the ones that'll ruin your day in a second." She was quick to add, "But I read my MySpace comments because they're awesome. You just have to be careful and filter the information you give yourself. Do you want to open the slam book today? Nope."

Addressing on weight insecurity which has become something common among Hollywood celebs, Taylor told Glamour Magazine, "I think the reason a lot of celebrities feel insecure and want to stop eating altogether is because they see so many pictures of themselves on a daily basis. It's unhealthy how many times you see your own image - it's just constant. When you see something enough, you're going to tear it down to the point where some days you feel like you're not even pretty."

In my opinion, she's cute and pretty.. not exceptionally beautiful but pretty.. and not really ugly. And whoever says you need to have big eyes to look beautiuful?? LOL Look at Nicole Kidman, Adriana Lima, Megan Fox and Catherine Zeta-Jones, they have small, slanting eyes, but they're one of the most beautiful women in the world.. And well, look at the likes of Emma Stone, or Amanda Seyfried.. they're bug-eyed girls with really big eyes, but I'd bet most people will agree with me that they're not that beautiful. I'm not being cruel, just stating my opinion.. I've seen more cruel persons who said Amanda and Emma are ugly. I don't find them ugly, but the point is, not because you have big eyes, the world will automatically find you beautiful.. It's all about the shape of the eyes, the color, and of course the emotion they convey, and the "look"..

small? i think they look big and chinky..all that eye makeup she wears makes it worse. I agree she's just popular because she is tall skinny and blonde

Taylor, if you are reading this, I want you to know your eyes are amazingly beautiful and who said small eyes aren't sexy? Your eyes aren't even that small! There are millions of people out there in love with you, your personality, your eyes, everything about you! Including me :) So please don't feel insecure about yourself because you don't deserve to. You are beautiful and the world knows it!

They're beautiful! They're not small! I don't take ANY notice if they're big/small or whatever, I love that they're blue! I always look at them in every video and think "Are her eyes blue or grey or greenish hazel or are they naturally brown" They're blue and lovely! I wish mine was blue too! I am a huge Swiftie and I'm 13 and I'm a girl! I love any eyes shape! :D Be strong/brave... <3

Mum says she has the perfect set of phoenix eyes when she first saw her mv. A girl can have small eyes and look ultra sensual and pretty. Big eyes are not a must.

Dear Taylor Swift, You look absolutely FINE. Please read this. Ignore stupid comments. People can be so mean sometimes. Those are the eyes you were born with and they look beautiful. :-)

How can you use "Chinese" to belittle her without being racist?? I'm Chinese. How dare you!!

She's very pretty. I think she has some Native American blood, her face is wide, her nose is rounded and her lips are pouty. That would explain her eyes, which are kind of almond shaped. I hate how society seems to think small eyes are ugly. Small eyes usually have more beautiful shape and color.

So many snarky and negative comments, way to be the exact kind of person she describes in the piece ... and she says flat out that it hurts. This age of nasty comments on news and blog articles has to end, it's turning us all into mean-spirited inward spectators.

Taylor's eyes are gorgeous, they're really blue and I like the shape. I'd much rather have smaller eyes than big eyes that make you look like your surprised all the time. And also the people saying she's "ugly" because she has "chinese" eyes, that's racist and chinese eyes are pretty

Her eyes are so pretty. They aren't even that small? Maybe a little, but they suit her face. How can they look chinese when they are blue anyways???

uhh i think her eyes are really pretty and unique soo idk what some of you are talking about
posted by lol on Feb 02, 2010
dont care about small eyes or anything like that, but her eye makeup needs to go. makes her eyes look ratty. if she ditched that whole black eyeliner look, her eyes wouldnt look that small. so stop complaining about small eyes if you're not doing anything to brighten them up girl!

hmm taylor's still pretty... not gorgeous, but she's definitely not ugly! yeah, her eyes are not as big as others, but i swear, she needs to fire that makeup artist of hers! she could also fix her eyebrows... they scare me.

Those eyes are yep, small. She looks a bit of Nicole Kidman...

not gonna lie; they are smaller than some others. but they look like amazing cat eyes in a really smoldering beautiful way!

Insecure about her eyes? You gotta be kidding me, that's probably her best attribute. Just look at those eyes, they're scream sexy!
