Kendall Jenner - Kendall Jenner tired of weight taunts

Kendall Jenner is struggling to gain weight.

The 17-year-old model is fed up with being criticised for being too thin but admits she is desperately trying to gain a few pounds.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star told Harper's BAZAAR Arabia: ''I'm constantly criticised for being too skinny.

''I'm trying to gain weight but my body won't let it happen. What people don't understand is that calling someone too skinny is the same as calling someone too fat, it's not a nice feeling.''

The brunette beauty also revealed that modelling has given her more confidence and helped her overcome her shyness.

She said: ''It's true, I used to be so shy. I used to never talk, just sit back and do my thing. I was never bullied though, and it was never like it was something that needed to be 'fixed', like being shy is a bad thing.

''I am still pretty shy but I've gotten much better because I'm always on set for photo shoots and I'm always filming with my family.''

Kendall credits her younger sister Kylie, 15, for inspiring her to be more outgoing rather than her famous older half-sisters Kim, 32, Kourtney, 22, and Khloe Kardashian, 28.

She said: ''My little sister would always be the one to bring me out of my little phase because she was so outgoing and, like, crazy. I wanted to be like her and looked up to my little sister. She helped me come out more.''
