Say It Ain't So: Serena Williams Discusses Body Image Issues

The tennis legend discusses her "big boobs" and "massive butt."


The woman that men pine over and whose body many women say they would like to have as their own has body image issues. In Harper's Bazaar, tennis champion Serena Williams discusses her "big boobs" and "massive butt." The size 12 beauty, who recently slimmed down to a size 10, says that she always wanted Venus' body, until she was about 23. She also discusses that it took a while for her to be comfortable with the fact that she doesn't look like "every other girl." She has come into her own, embracing her body and finally feeling comfortable about her looks. Well, that's good, because a lot of other people are satisfied with it. We'll take her guns and success any day.
