Hailey Bieber: 'Ballet has kept my body healthy'

·2-min read

Hailey Bieber swears doing ballet for 12 years has helped her to maintain her health.

In a new interview for Harper's Bazaar, the 24-year-old spoke about her time training as a ballet dancer, and said it has helped her in all aspects of her life, but in particular, it has contributed to her physical and mental wellbeing.

"Having done ballet for 12 years, I have that muscle memory. It plays a big part in my body type and in my athleticism. It’s kept my body healthy, and mentally it taught me how to be committed to something," she insisted. "I started modelling and travelling around the world when I was 17. It’s a business. You have to be disciplined, on time, and want to do it. Everything I learned from being a dancer still contributes to who I am today. I’m so grateful I did it, and I miss it. I have such a deep love for dancers.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Hailey also spoke about her love for Hollywood, and noted that she has a lot of admiration for stars including Rosamund Pike and Carey Mulligan.

"I’m also really inspired by actresses. I watched that movie I Care a Lot, with Rosamund Pike. Her face is stunning, but it’s her craft and skill that are beautiful to me. And her attitude in that movie? Watching it, I was like, 'Ah! She is so cool.' I was also captured by Carey Mulligan in Promising Young Woman. I find beauty in women playing strong characters," the model explained.

Hailey also confessed she would've been an actress, following in the footsteps of her actor father Stephen Baldwin, but lacked self-belief.

"I have such admiration for the film industry itself, but I’m really hard on myself in a lot of ways. Had I trained professionally, I would have more confidence," she candidly stated.
