Remember Samantha Brick? The woman who went into painstaking detail how her good looks where such a hindrance and how difficult it was being “beautiful“.
Well, she is back and revealing how much her life changed after she penned the essay titled, “There are downsides to looking this pretty: Why women hate me for being beautiful.”
She tells In Touch magazine that not only was she on the receiving end of a barrage of internet abuse, but she even received death threats.
“They said, ‘You should die. You should be bricked to death,’ playing on my last name,” the 41-year-old Birmingham, England, native tells In Touch, four months after her April 2 article ran in the U.K. Daily Mail. “They attacked the way I look — my teeth, my breasts, everything.”
Samantha says a friend even got a call from a stranger claiming to be holding Samantha hostage. “It was surreal,” she says. “I felt violated.”
Although Samantha admits the attacks forced her to question, for the first time, just how pretty she really is, and even made her contemplate getting plastic surgery, she now has her self-confidence back — and has no regrets. “I still get e-mails from models, housewives and ordinary women,” she tells In Touch, “thanking me for telling their story.”
