The 28-year-old tennis champion reveals that she used to hope having a body like sister Venus Williams because 'she's like a model and she fits everything.'
Tennis champion Serena Williams has struck a pose in a sexy swimsuit with her "massive butt" for the August issue of Harper's Bazaar. 28-year-old Serena donned Eres' white swimwear while holding a tennis ball.
In an interview with the magazine, Serena talked about her insecurities towards her body because she used to compare hers to her sister Venus Williams' body. Serena admitted, "She's totally different. I'm super curvy. I have big boobs and this massive butt. She's tall and she's like a model and she fits everything."
"I was growing up, wanting to be her, wanting to look like her, and I was always fitting in her clothes," Serena continued. However, the tennis star, who won her fourth Wimbledon trophy and 13th Grand Slam title on Saturday, July 3, further revealed, "Then one day I couldn't. I was 23 when I realized that I wasn't Venus. She's totally different."
"But it's fine. Now I'm obviously good, but it's a weird thing. Since I don't look like every other girl, it takes a while to be okay with that. To be different. But different is good," Serena added. "I feel so much sexier with short hair. I wanted to reach inside me and feel better. I don't want to hide behind a facade of hair."
When it came to a favorite part of her body, Serena stated, "My smile. Does that count? I think a smile can make your whole body. Models, they look fabulous, but they don't smile and they look so mad. But I like my smile, how it's bright and it's nice. Good thing my braces worked out."
Serena later took the chat into something more personal by addressing about her former actor boyfriend Common, whom she split from in April. She said, "His schedule is actually worse than mine. He didn't want the responsibility. It's really tough."
Looking befuddled, Serena recalled her words to Common, saying "So I called him and I was like, Why are you saying all this stuff when we're not together?," after learning Common praised on "beautiful, intelligent" Serena when he began promoting his latest film.
