Ice may love Coco, but Coco hasn't always loved her butt. The outrageously curvy model and hip-hop wife revealed that while she has now totally embraced her body, it wasn't always that way. In fact, a careless remark by a casting director almost left her with an eating disorder.
She revealed her surprising insecurity to Sister 2 Sister magazine.
"When I was 18, the J. Lo butt was not in. To have a booty was not the thing. You were considered fat if you had a booty," Coco told the mag. "I was being cast in stuff where you'll see all these really beanpole-looking white girls with blonde hair and big boobs. That's what I wanted to be."
"I was pulled aside during a photo shoot and a director told me that I needed to lose weight -- that I was getting fat."
"When I heard that I went into full craziness," she revealed. "I went and tried everything from diet pills to cleansing to everything you could possibly do to get rid of your butt. Bulimia -- I tried that but I love my food too much."
Hubby Ice-T set her straight by convincing Coco that her curves aren't just okay, they're super hot and sexy.
"I told her, 'You got a little waist and a nice, round butt.'" The Law and Order: SVU star said. "I said, 'That's what's unique about you. The boobs -- anybody can go buy them.'"
