Sam Smith is on the cover of “V Magazine,” where he opens up about his struggles with his weight, his life as a gay man and more.
The interview was conducted by his good friend Sarah Jessica Parker, who asked him about whether he has started feeling comfortable in front of a camera, and he admits losing all that weight over the past few years has helped him in that area.
"I was shooting my first music videos, I just wasn’t happy with the way I looked, so I was trying to control the way the camera moved,” he says. “I got a bit obsessive. I was constantly looking in the mirror, pinching my waist, weighing myself every day.” He adds, “Now, I’ve gotten to a place where I really love my stretch marks and I just enjoy my body."
