Hollywood beauty Rebecca Romijn-Stamos hated her body so much as a youngster she missed her dream of being in the school's swimming team - because she was too embarrassed to wear a bathing suit.

The stunning X-Men actress is now feted for her good looks and shapely body - but the 30-year-old American was incredibly insecure with her looks when she was a school girl.

She explains, "I wanted to be on the swimming team but was too ashamed to put on a bathing suit in front of the other students."
