Actress & Co-Host Of "The View" Raven-Symoné Opens Up About Her Mental Issues

We enjoy laughing at Raven-Symoné’s many, many bizarre comments from time to time. The woman is a hoot, even though she often seems to be completely serious when she says ridiculous things. 

We feel bad about using her as a punchline now though. Plus, she is super fun to follow on Twitter.

“I wish I was living now as a younger person,” the “View” co-host recently dished to People. “I probably wouldn’t have so many mental issues.”

Raven-Symoné got big break at three years old, after she landed a role on “The Cosby Show”. She has been work, work, working ever since too, starring in “That’s So Raven”, “The Cheetah Girls” and so many projects, including a successful musical career.

People have been making rude, un-asked judgements about her body the whole damn time though. Ugh.

 “[They said] I was too big to be doing an hour and a half concert. ‘I don’t know how she can dance being that big.’ And I was like, ‘I still did it!’” she shared. “I was on tour forever because it’s not about your size, it’s about what you have to say, if you can sing or dance, and performing. It’s not about your size.”

Previously, the star revealed that she was told to diet when she was just seven years old. She was also forced to wear a fat suit during the run of ABC Family series “State of Georgia” after she lost weight. 

“I love embracing your body,” she explained. “In this day and age you have all kinds, and it’s funny, it’s serious, it’s every color, it’s every head shape, it’s every hair. And there’s androgyny, and there’s LGBT coming in, and it feels good. We didn’t have it enough last time and I guess that’s what the past is for — to make sure the present is what it needs to be.”

“The world is too big to have one sort of view to show beauty, because then you are literally destroying society,” she went on to say. “You are literally destroying it. And then you want to talk about how we are judgmental to each other and this and this. But it’s being created in the industry that we’re in. So why not break the mold?”

When @ravensymone loves you but you are always talking in the stands😂💯❤️ @serenityreignbrown @itsjojosiwa #SerenityReignBrown #Fan #RavenSymone #DanceMoms #Jojo #FutureSinger
