Letitia Wright is re-evaluating the way she loves herself.

The 26-year-old actress put herself under a massive amount of mental strain when she first found fame in her late teens by analysing every detail of herself, but now she is taking a step back to learn how to appreciate herself better.

Speaking to ELLE magazine, she said: "I think back-to-back years of living the same way and thinking the same thoughts and the pressure I would put on myself ... I remember analysing every single thing.

"If I went on a red carpet, I'd analyse the picture. If I did an interview, I'd analyse the video. If I spent time with friends, after I left, I'd think to myself, 'Why did I laugh like that, why did I show teeth.' It was just back-to-back."

It was through her faith in Christianity, and joining the church in 2015 when she was 22 years old, that she began "another layer" of self-acceptance.

She continued: "I started to realise that, you know, it's not about me, it's not about how much people can validate me and I started to see the power of God and not the power of man.

"I'm on another layer of a self-love journey, taking a step back to re-evaluate loving myself even better than I did a year ago."
