When I was 16. I wanted a boob job. I wanted the fat pad under my chin to be removed. I wanted a butt reduction, or whatever,” Chloe tells Elle, “And my mom said, ‘Absolutely not, you’re not allowed to have plastic surgery.’ And because of that, I found a lot of power within my insecurities. They’re what make me who I am now.”

As an actress and model, Chloe doesn’t want to pretend that she was “born” like this. “I want to be as natural as can be. And I want to break it down for young women so they understand that you’re not just ‘born’ like this,” she explains, “Yes, I have had hair extensions. Yes, the reason I have this body is because I work out seven times a week. Yes, I eat really clean-even though I don’t always want to, and I definitely cheat.”

“But you’re not just born with this. Sometimes you have to fight for and work for things, and be happy with who you are at the same time. And that’s a really hard balance but I want to show it to young women,” she adds.

During the interview, Chloe also opens up about her boyfriend Brooklyn Beckham. “My boyfriend is a huge support. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I don’t need a man for anything, but when I’m feeling bad about myself, he’s like, ‘Stop. Look at what you say in interviews. Look at what you stand for. Listen to your own words, because you’re as beautiful as you say you are! All young women are more beautiful than they think, you know. And I like you more in sweatpants than I do when you’re on a red carpet.’ And it’s nice to have a young man who’s 17 years old be able to look at a woman that way. I think it means we’re on the right track.”
