Brooklyn Decker: I was wrecking my body

Sure, she's smokin' hot, but supermodel and Matthews native Brooklyn Decker, 23, admits to struggling with her body confidence.

"When I was younger, I was insecure about being gangly and having no shape," she says Self's February issue. "People made fun of me and called me a boy! I remember praying for boobs and a butt. Luckily, I grew into myself and got curves, but when I was first modeling, I wished for that boyish Gisele body again!"

In fact, Decker, who graced the cover of the 2010 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, cops to going to extreme measures to drop pounds.

"When I moved to New York, I was always with other aspiring models," the model, who stars with Jennifer Aniston in the upcoming rom-com "Just Go With It," tells the mag.

"There were bingers and purgers, and everyone watched each other eat. It freaked me out. I did juice fasts and crazy diets and ended up gaining weight. My father did an intervention and got me to stop obsessing about everyone else and wrecking my body."

Decker wed tennis ace Andy Roddick, 28, in 2009.
