Larry King: A lot of pressure on women to be beautiful. Now you’re obviously beautiful, we won’t deny that.

Lauren Scruggs Kennedy: Thank you.

Larry King: You didn’t have the average case. Obviously, do you have scars, did they have to-

Lauren Scruggs Kennedy: I do have a scar down my face, but it’s just healed up really well, and-

Larry King: You cover it with hair?

Lauren Scruggs Kennedy: Not always.

Larry King: No, I don’t see anything.

Lauren Scruggs Kennedy: Thank you. There’s a lot of amazing doctors that have helped.

Larry King: Has the accident changed your perspective on beauty?

Lauren Scruggs Kennedy: 100 percent.

Larry King: Tell me how.

Lauren Scruggs Kennedy: I realized I put a lot of value in outer beauty, because that’s what bothered me the most after my accident, like, “Ohmygosh, I don’t look the same, I’m so ugly, I’m not going to fit in, no man is ever going to love me, because I don’t look good.” And I’ve truly realized, and I’ve heard this my whole life, that beauty is internal, and I’ve never understood that. But I think just your character and just how you react to struggle in your life and how you love other people, I feel like is so much more beautiful than outward appearance, and of course the two can go hand in hand.

Larry King: How long did it take to learn that?

Lauren Scruggs Kennedy: I don’t know, I feel like-

Larry King: You never went through a period of feeling sorry?

Lauren Scruggs Kennedy: Not really.

Larry King: Looking in the mirror and saying, “This is terrible.” You didn’t?

Lauren Scruggs Kennedy: I definitely thought, “This is terrible, I can’t believe this is happening,” but I never thought, “Why me?” and feeling sorry for myself. I think I was the opposite of victimizing myself, and kind of rebelled against that mentality.
