Serena Williams shows off her curves on the cover of FITNESS Magazine.  Inside the magazine, she talked about loving her curves as well as her body image.  The tennis icon also revealed that is took her several years before she learns to accept and love her own skin.  What is Serena Williams in private and what is she publicly? Serena said:

“I think of myself as two different people, There’s the Serena Williams that everyone knows: She’s crazy… She can’t make a mistake… And she’s angry and just not nice, to be honest. I’m only that person for three hours a day when I’m on the court. The rest of the time I’m just Serena. I’m the class clown. It’s not the real me. Even for me, it’s shocking to see. But in another way, it’s kind of cool to know that I have everything together on the court, because I don’t really have my life together personally.”

When it comes to her body image and insecurity, she revealed:

“When I was young I thought I should be built more like an athlete -long and lean- not with a womanly figure. But then people my age started coming up to me and saying, ‘I love you because of the way you look.’ That was really motivating. So I learned to be proud of my curves and embrace my large boobs. It’s all about loving who you are and realizing that you’re beautiful.”
