She added: “The reason for getting a part or not isn’t always about talent or how talented people think you are; a lot of it’s about your looks.
“Always worrying about the way you look or your weight for certain roles — that has always been a big insecurity of mine.”
Comer, 26, added: “Growing up as a teen, I always struggled with my weight and body image.
“What I’m trying to do – and I feel like I’m succeeding a little bit in – is to be accepting of the fact that … I always put a stress on myself having to look a certain way, when you are who you are.
