The actress and fashion designer told Daily Star Sunday's TV Extra that she used to worry about what everyone else thought but as she's grown older she's learned it's pretty pointless. Discussing pressure to look good, she said: "It used to affect me more a few years ago, whereas now, if I'm feeling good in myself, that's all that matters.
"I've realised you're never going to win everyone over. You can't make people like you and, at the end of the day, they don't know you but they think they still have a right to comment on how you look. I hold my head high now though."
Michelle has recently been over in LA with husband Mark Wright where they have been speaking with Hollywood bosses about a career Stateside.
"If the opportunity came up then of course I would like to go to Hollywood," said Michelle, "I have never filmed in LA so who knows? Maybe in the future. If Mark didn't have work in the UK then he'd probably come with me. He supports whatever I do."
Meanwhile, husband Mark recently admitted the couple would like to move Stateside, telling Sunday People: "I've loved being in LA, it's amazing and it's been exciting having meetings about working here.
"I've met with top networks like E, CBS and NBC. I have a manager over here too, John Ferriter. He has represented stars like Ryan Seacrest and Jimmy Kimmel, who have had amazing careers, so I know I'm in good hands. Michelle has also been meeting with top acting agents while here as well. It has been a brilliant trip."
But before anything can possibly happen in the US, Michelle has to film her role in BBC's Our Girl which hits screens next year. She'll take over from previous star Lacey Turner.
