She tells OK! Magazine, "I used to open a newspaper and see 'Ozzy Osbourne's Beached Whale of a Daughter' or something like that. I would be like, 'I hate myself, I hate my life, I want to die.'"
Kelly Osbourne has shed 50 pounds since signing up to compete as a contestant on TV show Dancing With The Stars in 2009, and she admits the whole experience has changed her for the better.
She says, "It's a dream come true. The thing is, I was never fat. There is real-world large and then there is Hollywood large, which is a size 6... I grew up a lot.
"I believe that every human being has to go through things to find out who they really are and what they want. Life isn't easy. You have to make mistakes and learn from them."
