"I want to make people more aware about it, and about how hurtful it is. I'm using this platform of my exposure to give back; I've been so lucky to have gotten that Super Bowl commercial and to have gotten my face out there and I want to use this time right now to give back to girls who are in the same place that I was a few years ago with the bullying. Luckily for me, I had support, but some girls don't. So I'm using this opportunity to be a figure for them, and to raise money and awareness."Right on! What a beautiful use of celebrity. I think McKinney is in a position to make a real difference in the lives of young people, don't you? h/t: Daily Mail
It is easy to believe that if you just had model looks and a model body, every doubt and insecurity would just disappear. Truth is, that's not always the case. Charlotte McKinney is a 21 year old beauty whose star has skyrocketed over the past several months. She's even been touted as the "next Kate Upton" but in an interview with Galore Magazine, she reveals her insecurities. She says, "I can feel so bad about myself, especially if I start to pay attention to the kinds of stupid comments around the Internet... I have moments where I feel incredibly ugly, or fat, and it sucks, you know? I’ll usually try to keep a positive attitude, because I’m really so grateful for where I am, and the life I get to live, but I definitely have to work hard not to feel insecure." Having gained attention for her role in the super sexy Carl's Jr. Superbowl ad, she insists that she wants to be known for more than just her looks. "I’m not interested in just being the hot girl," she said. "I’m really goofy, and I love laughing, and that’s such a big part of who I am. I’m working on a film with Adam Sandler right now, and it’s just been so cool to be around that entire team of people." McKinney suffers with dyslexia and says that she had been bullied as a child.
