    Baldwin accompanied the sizzling snap with an impassionate caption. “Love your body. Respect your body,” she wrote.

    “Spend your remaining time on this earth with people who love you and make you feel good and if you don’t have many of those people, get out and go look for them. Some of y’all are taking this whole life thing so damn seriously... and it’s so not worth it,” she concluded.

    Last year, Ireland, who has featured in Vanity Fair, Elle, and Marie Claire, revealed her past battle with anorexia.

    Baldwin said it was negative comments on social media that inculcated these habits in her.

    "Anytime anyone told me I was too tall or too fat to have done a job, I would run on a treadmill for the entire duration of at least three episodes of Friday Night Lights,” she shared.

    "I battled with many eating disorders and body issues as a younger girl and it took me a long time to find self-love and acceptance.”
