'Dallas' star Charlene Tilton says she never felt 'beautiful' as a 1980s sex symbol

Charlene Tilton, best known for her role as Lucy Ewing on the hit television series "Dallas," recently opened up about her struggles with self-esteem during her time as a 1980s sex symbol.

In an interview with Fox News, Tilton said that despite being hailed as one of the most beautiful women of her generation, she never felt truly confident in her own skin.

"I never felt beautiful," she said. "I always felt like there was something wrong with me."

Tilton said that her insecurities were exacerbated by the intense scrutiny that she faced from the media and the public, particularly with regards to her appearance.

"As an actress, you're always being judged on how you look," she said. "It can be very difficult to deal with, especially when you're young and still figuring out who you are."

Despite her struggles, Tilton said that she was grateful for the opportunities that her role on "Dallas" had afforded her, and that she had learned to embrace her flaws and imperfections over time.

"I've come to accept myself for who I am," she said. "I may not be perfect, but I'm happy with who I am, and I think that's what's important."

Tilton's comments come amid a larger conversation about body positivity and self-esteem in Hollywood, with many actors and actresses speaking out about the pressure to conform to impossible beauty standards.

Several high-profile stars, including Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, have recently spoken out about their own struggles with self-esteem and body image, and have called for greater acceptance and inclusivity in the entertainment industry.

For Tilton, the key to overcoming her insecurities was to focus on her own inner strength and resilience, rather than on external validation.

"You have to find your own inner beauty," she said. "You have to love yourself for who you are, flaws and all."

Tilton said that she hoped her story would inspire others to embrace their own uniqueness and to recognize that true beauty comes from within.

"I want people to know that they don't have to be perfect to be beautiful," she said. "They just have to be themselves."
