Overcoming her insecurities 

Jamie's daughter Lily gave an interview to Harper's Bazaar UK where she talked about how she struggled with judgments, insecurities and confidence. 

Lily started her talks by comparing herself with her character which she played in the movie Rebecca. Her character is a confident, open, and freedom-loving girl. She feels that the movie was the best movie she had ever did. But she is the opposite in her real life.  

She has always been that type of woman who is uncontrollable, and that's what she feels that all women should be. Rebecca is a kind of woman who broke all the rules, did everything that she liked, and loved herself. 

But Lily had been through that phase of life where she was unconfident about herself. She was even judged. She said that judgments and criticism are the things that everybody faces, and if taken positively and try to overcome it, that becomes helpful to grow, but if it's taken negatively, then it can be very damaging to one going through it. 

Lily is still in the learning phase, and she is developing herself in a better way. For now, others' opinions about hers don't matter to her because she thinks what matters is how she feels and thinks about herself. 

She wants to make her ready to face any consequence in her life because she doesn't want to keep herself in that place where she needs to get afraid of anything. She makes a mistake and tries to learn from it. 

She feels good when she is around her friend, and she doesn't put herself anywhere where she feels insecure about herself. She said that self-criticizing is very dangerous as it keeps us in a place where we cannot accept ourselves.
