Sarah Michelle Gellar looks amazing to us, but apparently she doesn't see the same things we do.
The Ringer star told Health magazine that she doesn't always feel as confident as she appears. In the October issue, Gellar says:
"Iâ€™m a female! I totally have body dysmorphic disorder. I think most women do. A makeup artist friend once said, 'I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve ever seen you look in a mirror.' Iâ€™m surrounded by them all the time -- you sit in hair and makeup -- so I guess I just have this mechanism where I tune it out. So every once in a while, Iâ€™ll look and Iâ€™ll be like, 'Wait, thatâ€™s what I look like?'"
Sarah continues, "I just have to remember that Iâ€™m human, and Iâ€™m a mom. Being a parent changes the vanity at least a little bit. It has to. Your priorities are different."
Body dysmorphia is a psychological issue where a person becomes excessively concerned and obsessed about a perceived physical defect. While she may not have the actual disease per say, she does go on to say that she's growing more comfortable in her skin, thanks in part to having been pregnant with her daughter Charlotte, now 2. She told the mag:
"Iâ€™m not as critical as I used to be about my body. And itâ€™s also funny, too, how women perceive women, and how men perceive women. Because a woman will look at the skinniest person and think thatâ€™s the most attractive, and a man will not think thatâ€™s attractive at all!"
We think you look gorg just the way you are, Sarah!
Doesn't she look just like her daddy, actor Freddie Prinze, Jr.?

Awww, isn't this sweet! Sarah Michelle Gellar (aka Buffy the Vampire Slayer) reunited with Michelle Trachtenberg, who played Bufffy's younger sister Dawn for a shopping trip in Beverly Hills!
The screen sisters headed to children's boutique Eggy, where no doubt they bought gifts for Sarah's little sweetheart Charlotte, who turns one in just a few weeks.
We love to see them back together on the streets, but we'd rather see them back together on the screen! With all the success of vampire movies and tv series, don't you think they should reunite for a special or even a movie?
Congrats to Buffy and her hubby!
Sarah Michelle Gellar will always have a special place in my heart due to her work in Cruel Intentions (not to mention Swans Crossing), and so it's weird to see her now all grown up! Check out SMG taking a stroll with her baby Charlotte Grace in Santa Monica yesterday afternoon...
I bet the former Buffy The Vampire Slayer star wasn't expecting this kind of attention when she lunched in Bev Hills on Tuesday!
Lindsay Lohan was holding an event for her 6126 leggings line at E. Baldi yesterday afternoon, and it just so happened that Sarah Michelle Gellar was dining there as well. Though SMG wasn't exactly basking in the camera flashes, she was a pretty good sport about the whole thing.
