The gorgeous Angell Conwell (Leslie, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) took to Twitter to fire back at body shamers and take pride in her appearance!

“Been curvy since I was 10,” the actress wrote. “Heavily hated on/misjudged with stereotypes and preconceived notions.”

Conwell also confessed that in her mid-20s, she “began to ‘cover up’ because I couldn’t take being misunderstood/labeled. Didn’t want the curves to distract from the work.”
