'I looked ridiculous': Olivia Newton-John's daughter Chloe Lattanzi (pictured) has opened up about her battles over the years with body dysmorphia and said she regrets getting fillers
'I didn't have a clear sense of myself so I had my lips plumped up,' Chloe said, saying she got the fillers at the 'height of body dysmorphia'.
'I thought somehow it would make me more acceptable looking. I looked ridiculous.'
She said she first got fillers after she recording her album 12 years ago - when she was 18 - and her team told her because of her anorexia, she couldn't do press photos.

She said after overcoming anorexia - which she underwent treatment for when she was 18 - she developed obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and depression.
'My life became pretty out of control,' she admitted, saying life in the tabloids and constant criticism didn't help.
She said that nowadays she is 'really happy' because she's engaged and working.
The blonde addressed the constant plastic surgery rumours and said she hasn't had anything done beside from fillers - hinting she got more than lip fillers - which is classified as a cosmetic procedure.

'I had all that removed from my face, because I like the way I look naturally, so this is what I look like now,' Chloe proudly declared.
'I look back at myself as a teenager and I'm like "what a beautiful young woman, what was I thinking, why was I so insecure?"
She said thanks to social media women are under pressure to look their best and it can affect them.
Her comments on the show come after she recently shared a moving social media post hinting at her body image troubles.

'I am not my face. I am not my makeup. I am not my body. You are not your face, body, possessions, accomplishments, mistakes, pain, or happiness,' Chloe said.
'What we are can not be captured in a snapchat, an Instagram photo, a facebook profile. I want to talk to people more. Look past the image they want to present, and feel the essence of what they are.'
She concluded:' This picture presents an idea of who I am. This is just a mask. An alter ego to protect me. I wish I could truly know you. I yearn to be understood. #momentoflife .'
According to a recent article in New Idea magazine, the blonde beauty has indulged in approximately $415,000 worth of cosmetic surgery, including a nose job, multiple breast enhancements, fillers and Botox.

'Chloe's totally obsessed with getting a Barbie doll body and nothing is every quite good enough for her,' a source told the Australian publication.
The insider also claims 67-year-old Olivia 'is desperately worried' for her daughter's obsession with body image.
While US surgeon Dr Tahl N. Humes told New Idea he suspects Chloe has had several breast augmentations and perhaps liposuction, a 'family insider' told the same publication that 'some friends are whispering she got a rib removed.'
New Idea has reported her suspected surgery would have cost approximately $415,000, with alleged bottom surgery and maintenance the most costly, worth a hefty $66,000.

Chloe has previously explained that while she did dabble with fillers in the past, her recently plumped pout is in fact due to a do-it-at-home product that uses a suction technique to help the lips swell up.
A now-recovering Chloe has battled a slew of health problems in the past after seeking treatment for eating disorders and substance addiction.

Anxiety is one of the biggest factors she blames for sending her life into a self-destructive spiral, which she previously told Daily Mail began with anorexia and ended with cocaine, vodka and antidepressant abuse.
'I had blackouts', she said following her stint in rehab.
She continued: 'Later, being drunk and high became so routine that I would be high in front of my mum – and I don't think she even noticed because it was such a normal state for me to be in.'
