days, meetings, spurned affection – all that seems long-forgotten, but all
same affects our lives and makes us what we are. We can

It may seem incredible, but Angelina, which has been repeatedly recognized the most beautiful woman in the world, suffering the rejection of their appearance – this is what is meant by the term “dysmorphic disorder”. This disorder was first described in 1886 and is one of the most common psychological problems of our time. That seems outright foolishness or foolish coquetry, actually capable of great poison life.
“I from childhood was uncomfortable in their skin,” said Angelina in an interview. – At first it was a vague uneasiness at the sight of his reflection in the mirror.

Is it possible to cure BDD? And this question has no definite answer. It can be controlled, and at some point angelina did it. She has repeatedly said that the actress helped her cope with the hatred of their appearance: “I Guess I became an actress because I always wanted to be themselves and someone else. Living someone else’s life, you begin to think your not so bad…”
