Nina Dobrev used to have eyebrows so bushy she could “get lost in them”.
The Vampire Diaries actress is known for her sleek red carpet looks these days, but admits embracing her beauty didn’t always come naturally.
In fact Nina recently shared a Throwback Thursday (TBT) snap of herself on Instagram proving she was a late bloomer in the beauty department.
“I have a love-hate relationship with my eyebrows,” she told America’s InStyle, adding it’s been a “constant battle” toward accepting her brows.
“I posted a photo a few weeks ago of me for TBT with my teacher in Grade 6, and I had a boyish haircut and bushy eyebrows – like you could get lost in them bushy.”
Since finding fame on The CW’s hit vampire series in 2009, Nina has made sure her beauty look is fitting for a TV star. The 27-year-old has also crossed over to movie work, and is currently working on Vin Diesel adventure Return of Xander Cage.
She recently wowed at the American Music Awards, switching up her hairstyle with two side braids on the left side of her hair. But like everyone, Nina has her off days, though she doesn’t beat herself up over not looking perfect all the time.
“We all have things that we like and that we don’t like about ourselves, and eventually as you get older you start to not care… because you’re like this is me. I’m awesome. I love me. Everyone else should too. If they don’t, f**k them,” she smiled.
