Eva Mendes Shared An Important Message About Insecurities

Celebs, they're just like us.

Don't believe us? Just check out this shocking confession from Eva Mendes.

She may be living everyone's dream life (she's dating Ryan Gosling, after all), but she, too, has insecurities about the way she looks.

Recently, she spoke out about this. At the same time as her confession, she shared an important message about body image.

Everyone has insecurities — even celebs.

Take Kylie Jenner, for example.

It took the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality star a long time to admit that she had had lip fillers. “I was 15 and I was insecure about my lips,” she admitted on the family's reality TV show.

Sadly, this insecurity stemmed from an experience with a teenage boy.

“It was one of my first kisses, and a guy was like, ‘I didn’t think you would be a good kisser because you have such small lips,'” she explained.

She said that she took the comment really hard and internalized it.

Olivia Wilde is another gorgeous celeb with insecurities.

This confession is truly Wilde: when she first met her now-ex Jason Sudeikis, she worried that she wasn't "beautiful enough or his type."

Olivia is the epitome of every guy's type, so it's truly hard to fathom how someone so beautiful could ever doubt that.

Speaking of hard to fathom, this next celeb with insecurities truly shocked the world.

It's hard to believe that Eva would have insecurities, just like you and me.

After all, she's living everyone's dream life: she's a movie star who's in a long-term relationship with Ryan Gosling (they have two daughters together).

Recently, she got candid about her insecurities in an Instagram post.

"Just came across this picture from a movie that was almost 20 years ago," she began.

The said picture was a still from her film, Once Upon a Time in Mexico. She then shared how that photo used to make her feel.

"I remember seeing this photo back then and thinking my face looked 'weird,'" she said.

"And that my bone structure was odd ...yadda yadda ..you know all those insecurities that a 26 year old can have," she continued.

The star then shared that those "insecurities" are what she wishes she has now.

"Meanwhile 20 years later and now I wish I still had that 'weird' face and odd 'bone structure,'" she said with an exasperated face emoji.

We feel you, girl! We wish we could go back to that time we thought we looked too big. sigh if only.

When it came down to her point, Eva shared a poignant message about insecurities.

"Why’s my point? Im not sure. Maybe it’s if you hate a photo of yourself wait 20 years then you’ll love it."

She ended her important message by quoting Oscar Wilde.

“Youth is wasted on the young," the quote read.

Ever since Mendes shared her message, it has resonated with so many people.

"That’s literally what I’m going through now as I am 25 years old. Thank you for sharing this," wrote one user. " love how comfortable you are in your own body," added another.

"I love this post!! I often see pics like that of myself and think why the hell was I so insecure then???" added this user.

Eva also got lots of comments from fans and celeb pals, reminding her how beautiful she is.

"I think you still look the same," wrote one fan with the heart-eyes emoji.

"PS you are as gorgeous as ever. More importantly - strong, smart, healthy, loving, loved and just wonderful!" added another.

With a candid post like this, it's clear that she's beautiful inside and out. Thank you, Eva, for this important reminder!
