Sarah Michelle Gellar Won’t Look at a Mirror

Sarah Michelle Gellar covers the latest issue of Health and talks about her feeling of insecurity. She diagnoses herself with body dysmorphic disorder and swears she rarely looks in a mirror. She’s just like us! Or, you, rather.

“I’m a female! I totally have body dysmorphic disorder. I think most women do. A make-up artist friend once said, ‘I don’t think I’ve ever seen you look in a mirror’. I’m surrounded by them all the time – you sit in hair and make-up – so I guess I just have this mechanism where I tune it out. So every once in a while, I’ll look and I’ll be like, ‘Wait, that’s what I look like?’

“I just have to remember that I’m human, and I’m a mom. Being a parent changes the vanity at least a little bit. It has to. Your priorities are different.”

I’m the same way about not looking into a mirror. Not because I have body image issues but because if I do, there’s a good chance I might fall in love and stand there for hours staring at myself. I’m so handsome.

If she looked in the mirror more, she’d know that she needs to put some meat on dem bones.
