Kendall Jenner Can’t Gain Weight, Sick of Being Called ‘Too Skinny’

While Kim Kardashian faces scrutiny over her pregnancy weight gain, half-sister Kendall Jenner says it's just as hard being called thin.

"I'm constantly criticized for being too skinny," Jenner told Harpers Bazaar Arabia. "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," the 17-year-old model continued. "It's not a nice feeling."

It's likely Jenner has gone to Kim for advice about her frustrations, then.

"She's been through a lot, so [Kylie and I] can go to Kim with anything and she'll have literally the best advice," Jenner explained.

But Kendall doesn't necessarily want to follow in Kim's footsteps professionally.

"I'm trying my best with what I want to do, which is modeling," Jenner said. "I think I'm on my own career path and I don't really care what other people have to say about me being in the spotlight of my sisters. I'm just doing my own thing."
