The 58-year-old supermodel has learned to be gentle with herself as she stops looking at herself in the mirror after being disfigured in a botched cosmetic procedure.

AceShowbiz - Linda Evangelista no longer look herself in the mirror. The 58-year-old supermodel - who announced earlier this year that she was fighting cancer for the second time - was left "permanently disfigured" in 2016 when she underwent a fat-freezing procedure with CoolSculpting and later sued the company for $50 million but although she no longer "blames herself", chooses not to look at her reflection.

"Oh, I don't look in the mirror. My son will say to me sometimes, 'You might want to know that you have a pimple on your chin.' And I'm like, what? But life is better without mirrors. Well, I don't blame myself anymore. I'm not hard on myself any longer," she told The Sunday Times.

"And how people feel about me still bothers me a little bit, but it used to bother me a lot. I know now that I didn't do anything wrong. For the longest time I thought I did. I'm not completely rid of it, but I work hard at getting rid of the guilt and the shame. And I'm not letting it ruin my life. I wouldn't have stayed locked up if I'd known how many people cared."

Linda went on to add that she is now making the effort with friends and family more than ever and believes she has "no right to complain" when she hears of others who have battled the disease.

She said, "When I see someone and say, 'Oh, I haven't seen you in so long, let's have dinner together,' now I really mean it. When I hear other people's stories, I think, oh God, I have no right to complain."

Linda - who was married to French model Gerald Marie from 1987 until 1993 but has 17-year-old Augustin with former partner Francois-Henri Pinault - was then asked about her dating life but admitted that she has "no interest" in ever being intimate with anyone again. She said, "Not interested. I don't want to sleep with anybody any more. I don't want to hear somebody breathing."
