The gorgeous Lisa Ray very bravely spoke about the struggles she faced while dealing with cancer in a heartfelt interview to Hindustan Times. Her fight with multiple myeloma has been a long one and despite being cancer free since 2010, she is still under very heavy medication. Here’s what she said when she was asked about the effects the medicines have had on her –
My main concern was to stay alive. I gained 40 pounds because of the steroids I took during the illness, but I still walked the red carpet of a film event. It was the least self-conscious I’d ever been. I broke through ‘The Pathology of perfection’, which, I think, a lot of us in the industry suffer from. Looks do matter, but they aren’t most important. I’m on steroids. I’ll never get my old figure back. But forget my cancer experience; even getting older has an impact on your looks. And I’m okay with that.
It’s so strong of her to discuss something to personal in the media, Lisa Ray is truly an inspiration.
