Khloe Kardashian Says Comparisons To Her Sisters Made Her Stronger

Khloe Kardashian has given a frank and honest interview with Cosmopolitan where she discusses a wide range of issues, which include her marriage, looks, and how it feels to constantly be compared to her sisters.

Kardashian remarked, “I’m pretty tough. I want to say I don’t care, but of course [comments about my body] are going to sting. After my father died [when she was 19], I gained a lot of weight, and then I was in the spotlight.”

She then added about this stage of her life, “I was quickly criticised for not being a cookie-cutter sister like Kourtney and Kim. I lost about 30lbs before I did Kourtney And Khloé Take Miami [in 2009].”

Khloe admits that there were periods of her life when she thought she would always be critiqued for her appearance, saying, “I was feeling so good about myself and I was still so critiqued. I thought, ‘Oh, my gosh, if I’m not good enough now’. ”

However she soon had an epiphany, adding, “And that’s when something clicked in my brain: I have to do whatever is good for me. I feel that I’m healthier [now], but I don’t think I’m prettier thinner.”

Khloe then added that she has found being constantly compared to her older sisters, Kourtney and Kim, difficult at times, but now thinks that this has made her stronger.

“I’m confident in who I am,” remarked the former X-Factor host who has been married to Lamar Odom since 2009. I’ve always known that I’m not Kim and I’m not Kourtney – I’ve always been OK with that.”

She even added that it has probably made her more modest, noting, “I probably thought I was prettier before I entered the spotlight because being compared to somebody else every day does sort of beat up your spirit and soul. But it’s made me stronger. I’ve gained another level of confidence.”

The full interview is in the June interview of British Cosmopolitan, which goes on sale on May 2.
