I wanted to empower women: Carmen Electra

entertainment Updated: Mar 24, 2012 02:33 IST

Actor Carmen Electra, who had released her self-help novel entitled, How To be Sexy, in 2007, has said that she wanted her book to help women build their self-confidence.

“The message I was trying to convey is that everyone has something special about themselves they don’t like, even models and movie stars and rock stars,” Contactmusic quoted Electra as telling Regard magazine. “Embrace those flaws and build your confidence by working out and feeling good about yourself. I wanted to help empower women. Plus, after having worked with the very best hair and make-up and styling teams, I thought I would share a few secrets that I have learned along the way,” she added.

Electra, 39, has always been confident about her body. “I started my career with Playboy magazine. I think there’s a freedom in taking off your clothes and posing,” she said.
