Baldwin also shared a pic of her past self in a bikini, superimposing the image with the word “Nope.”

“I battled with many eating disorders and body issues as a younger girl and it took me a long time to find self love and acceptance!” she wrote, per E!

And when social media trolls criticized her physique, Baldwin “would run on a treadmill for the entire duration of at least three episodes of Friday Night Lights.”

The Sports Illustrated model previously espoused body positivity via Instagram in June 2017. “I am not going to be body-shamed for being pale or not stick thin,” she said at the time. “I’m not going to spend hours Photoshopping my authenticity away. I’m not going to beat myself up for not looking like someone else.”
