Kendall Jenner Opens Up About Anxiety

January 12, 2018 - 5:30am

Kendall Jenner may be one of the most admired beauties in the world, but she often finds the pressure to live up to the hype to be too much.

The supermodel opens up to BFF and fellow catwalker Cara Delevingne in an interview for the February issue of Harper's Bazaar, and discusses her mixed feelings about fame, her anxiety and her hopes for motherhood.

  • Regarding fame, she tells Delevingne: “I’ve had to grow up pretty fast and deal with situations most 22-year-olds aren’t really put into. There are days and weeks and months when you just don’t stop.”
  • Sometimes, she says, she just wants to be invisible: “And you know me and how OCD I can get over the littlest things. If something isn’t going the way I planned, I freak out. Some days I just want to go live on a farm and not talk to anyone and just exist in the middle of nowhere.”
  • Jenner also discusses her “debilitating” anxiety: “I literally wake up in the middle of the night with full-on panic attacks. Where do I even start? Everything is so horrible; it’s hard to name one thing. I just think that the world needs so much love. I wish I had the power to send Cupid around the planet, as cheesy as that sounds. You go online and you see everyone saying the worst things to each other, and it’s hard to stay positive. It’s hard not to get eaten alive by all the negativity.”
  • She also opens up about her plans to have children. Delevingne asks her, when the time comes, will she "let them have access to social media?" Jenner says: "I think I'll definitely put an age limit on it and try to keep them away from it as much as possible. I always loved being able to play in my yard with my animals, and my dog, and my friends. It's going to be interesting to see what the world is like when I do have kids. But I definitely don't plan on having them anytime soon."
  • She says later that she tries to stay off social media herself: “Lately I've just tried to stay off it
    , and I definitely don't look at comments.”
