Model Sophie Turner posted an image of herself taken from a photo shoot, expressing how it made her feel "angry" to see her cellulite. 

"It was on my mind but why should it? I am more than cellulite, I am more than the belly rolls, and the back fat, and cellulite is normal!!" she wrote. 

Turner wrote that "it's natural for us ladies" to have cellulite, and "we need to stop seeing it as disgusting or ugly."

"I’ve had cellulite since I was about 12 which is normal. After living with something for a decade it’s all a part of being me," she added. 

But, she says she's "still learning to love" her cellulite and "not hate it." 

"It’s a slow road to self love but it’s the best thing you can do for your confidence and mental health," she continued.
