Miranda Hart claims that while she's more confident since she first appeared in 'Miranda' in 2009, she doesn't credit fame for the improvement
Miranda Hart insists fame hasn't made her more confident.
The 'Miranda' star has confessed she feels much more confident in herself now than when the sitcom first started in 2009 but claims it has nothing to do with fame.
Quizzed on whether the show made her more confident, she said: "I don't think that's it. I was more self-assured before I was in sitcoms - a lot of my worries about my looks only started when the media got interested."
The 41-year-old comedienne felt it was unfair she was often referred to as "larger than life" while men were never called out on their weight.
She explained to Radio Times magazine: "In the first two series of 'Miranda' I was very low on my looks - it's only now I'm beginning to think I might be allowed to consider myself attractive. It's not fame that brings you confidence that's for sure."
Insisting, however, that she is much happier now than when she first took on the role, she said: "Much happier, I like getting older, I know how to be me these days. I don't care if I've got the wrong shoes on... I do less of that going home at night saying, 'What did I say?' I have more confidence."
