In a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar, 31-year-old Khloe Kardashian, dishes on losing weight and how she’s now treated different by stylists; why it’s easier to date celebrities; being famous and her youngest sister Kylie Jenner. Check out a few excerpts.
On losing weight and being compared to her sisters:
I definitely think the fashion industry, and people in general, look at me more now that I’ve lost weight…Even on shoots, I would never have options for clothing. There would always be this attention on Kourtney and Kim, but I was too much work for [stylists] or they had nothing in my size. I wasn’t even that crazy big!
On stylists who wouldn’t work with her in the past:
I’m just like, ‘Fuck you. I’m not going to reward your bad behavior.’
On dating celebrities:
If you’re seen with someone on your first date, you’re automatically getting married the next day. It’s so extreme! So when you’re two celebrities, you can keep it really quiet at first, to see if you even like each other. Dating someone in your world is a little easier.
On being outspoken and more open about her business than her sisters:
People think I’m more ‘real’, I’m the first person to say if I didn’t do something right or that I could have done something differently. I share so much, maybe more in-depth than my sisters, and I think people appreciate that.
On the impact that her celebrity status has on her ability to make friends:
Our family has way more information about [us] online than any other, and it’s always so bizarre when you meet someone and see their perception of you. Sometimes I feel like I have to prove people wrong, and that’s weird. It’s easy to meet people, but you don’t know if you’re meeting them for the right reasons. Knowing who to trust is hard.
I like to say I don’t care what people say about me, but that’s not true. Not wanting to go to certain places because I wonder what will be written about me the next day—I hate that I carry that with me.
On reading negative Instagram comments:
I think people who say they don’t are lying. What’s sad is that I can read 10 beautiful comments and then one bad one and I’m like, ‘Ugh!’
On losing weight:
When I started seeing that I could lose weight—because I just thought my body would never change—I started taking it more seriously and eating better.
On working with her family on KUWTK:
Most people see [their families] on holidays. We see each other every single day because it’s part of our job. I love that, I really do. Our show has brought us closer together and I’m able to witness moments I never would if we all had jobs in our individual spaces.
On little sister Kylie:
Kendall handles it so incredibly well, but I think Kylie—she’s a lot like me, just wanting to hang out with her friends and do things any normal 18-year-old can do, like go to the mall. Usually [18-year-olds] are only subject to judgment within their own circle. For Kylie, things are thrown on the front page on so many news outlets, but no one stops to think: this is an 18-year-old’s life. She’s just trying to figure it out.
