Serena Williams Opens Up About Insecurities and Common

July 6, 2010  |  

Serena Williams is looking super glamorous in her photo shoot and story for Harper’s Bazaar. The Wimbledon champ talks about her workout plan to get less bulky, insecurities about her famous arms and what he ex-beau said that surprised her.

She told Harper’s:

“I wanted to get really fit. I wanted to lose some weight. So I’ve been doing Pilates and yoga, trying to lean out my body so I won’t be bulky.”

“When I was six or seven in a swimsuit — I look back at those picture, and my arms are cut and my legs are strong,” she says. “I didn’t realize that I was really fit and most people aren’t. To this day, I don’t love my arms. People want more fit arms, but my arms are too fit. But I’m not complaining. They pay my bills.”

And concerning her breakup with Common:

“His schedule is actually worse than mine,” she sighs. “He didn’t want the responsibility. It’s really tough.”

[Because he was saying such good things about her after the break-up, making people think they were still together] “I called him and I was like, Why are you saying all this stuff when we’re not together?”

It’s always refreshing to hear celebrities be real. It’s also refreshing for her to finally admit her relationship with Common. Geez! It’s always after the break-up.
