GLEE star Heather Morris has opened up on how "mortified" she felt 10 years ago when nude photos of the actress were leaked.
Heather was among several stars including Olivia Munn, Rihanna and Jennifer Lawrence, who had nude pictures hacked from their iCloud accounts and posted online.
Now a mom-of-two, Heather has admitted it's taken her 10 years for her to feel comfortable showing her body, and praised a recent workout challenge for helping her to come to terms with her figure.
"Okay so over 10 years ago, some nude photos were leaked of me and many other actresses in the industry," she wrote alongside a bikini picture.
"To say I was MORTIFIED is an understatement; my body was and still is part of my job and I felt like I couldn’t even walk around my work place thinking that everyone had seen every single piece of me (a couple of snide comments from co-stars came my way which didn’t help)."
The 33-year-old continued: "Shortly after that faded away into the abyss, I had two kids and became a mom, so till this day, I’ve been VERY sacred about how I display myself and definitely still don’t even feel 💯 % comfortable in anything riskay.
"But, to add no pressure to feeling like I need to be a twig or a certain weigh/shape/size (it’s honestly a concept I’ve come to terms with that my body is beautiful regardless)…recently I began the @barrys 30 day challenge and I just want to say that during this quarantine I feel the best I’ve ever felt in over a decade."
"Its a f**cking challenge and a tough one at that," she said, "but I just want to say let’s not anyone feel ashamed of who we are and just go kick some ass when we want to and feel good about ourselves, okay!!? I’m done…"
Heather, who starred as Brittany Pierce in the hit musical series Glee, is mom to two sons with husband Taylor Hubbell, a former high school classmate of hers.
The pair did not know each other at school but reconnected on MySpace after he began college.
They welcomed Elijah in 2013, and a second son, Owen, in 2016.
She married Taylor in 2015, and their wedding featured a large Glee reunion with Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz, Vanessa Lengies and Naya Rivera all in attendance.
