Ryan Seacrest Reveals His Childhood Insecurities

Ryan Seacrest is a pretty good looking guy.

He was just featured in People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive 2014 issue in a section called "Geeky to Gorgeous," after all.

But Seacrest told Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night he used to be very self conscious about his looks when he was younger.

"I used to hate spring break," Ryan Seacrest said on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."
"Why?" asked Jimmy Kimmel.

"Well, because you'd have to go to the pool or the beach, and I never wanted to take my shirt off. So I would swim in that shirt or white snake shirt or whatever it was," said Seacrest.

"Because you were self conscious," said Kimmel.
"Yes, I hated it," said Seacrest.
But all jokes aside, it took Seacrest a long time to learn to manage his weight and get his confidence back.

He recently told Men's Fitness, "I do remember that feeling of growing up and being a little bit overweight... I definitely think that remembering how I felt back then drives me to stay fit as an adult."

And Seacrest has definitely managed to stay motivated, to say the least.

He told People in September, "I have a home gym and clothes in a locker at two hotel gyms so I can duck in between meetings. I treat my workouts as one of the most important meetings of the day."
And that motivation has definitely led to great success for Seacrest, both in his fitness goals and his career. He currently hosts "American Idol" as well as "On Air With Ryan Seacrest." (Video via Fox / "American Idol")

And he's also a successful producer, with shows like "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" and "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution" under his belt. (Video via E! / "Keeping Up With the Kardashians")
