Twenty Seven year old Claire Leeson wanted to look like reality star Kim Kardashian so she splashed £18, 000 to do just that when she was younger. Now she said she totally regrets it as she is sick and tired of being compared to Kim K. She said she is now constantly being ridiculed for her appearance.
Claire Leeson from Waltham Abbey, Essex said:
I always had a resemblance to Kim and I thought I could capitalise on that by copying her look, but its backfired ad now I hate looking like her.Its ruining my life, I’m just being ridiculed. People don’t understand that it is not a compliment for me to be compared to Kim. It really upsets me. I feel like a bit of an idiot and I regret saying I wanted to be like her. I am my own person and I wish I hadn’t gone along with it at that time.
I only started watching the show a couple of seasons in, after people said I look like Kim Kardashian. I liked her make-up and the clothes she wore so I took it as a compliment.She’s really pretty and everyone was trying to look like her. I was so low and insecure at the tine, I felt I should take it (the publicity)because it was there.It was an urge for attention, I can’t tell you how low I was. I didn’t believe I was anything great, so I thought to myself, if can look like her that will make me pretty.
Claire began working as a look-a-like and appeared on TV, but regrets being linked to claims she spent thousands of pounds on surgery to look like Kim Kardashian.
She rebutted this according to Mirror. Here is what she had to say.
People don’t believe me when I say I’ve had nothing done. I had a boob job when I was younger but that was for myself, I’ve never done anything to deliberately look like Kim. I keep being stereotyped as a surgery freak who ants to be like her but I want to be myself- it’s not my fault. All I am trying to do is defend myself, and people are attacking me for saying I haven’t had anything done.
I can’t win, people just think I’ m rubbing it in by saying I am natural but I’m not. I ‘m happy being myself, I ‘m not one for changing myself to try and be someone else.
According to the brunette beauty who is having a tough time proving herself to be her own person she is unhappy with the fact that people just comment on her pictures and say Kim. She said she has been upset with this as this has ruined her reputation as an actress because she is unable to promote herself . She wishes she never looked like Kim. She said
Sometimes I really wish I didn’t look like her. I don’t want to be anything like her anymore, the best thing I can do is be myself and break away from her. I was never , ever happy when I was trying to look like her. The best thing that has come out of this whole thing us that I’ve discovered who I really am.
Here are some pictures of her, does she really look like Kim Kardashian, what do you think?
