“I hid myself and I would flatten my boobs,” Twain said to The Times.

“I would wear bras that were too small for me, and I’d wear two, play it down until there was nothing girl about me. Make it easier to go unnoticed. Because, oh my gosh, it was terrible – you didn’t want to be a girl in my house.”

Twain also said it took a long time for her to let go of that anger.

“It took a long time to manage that anger,” she added. “You don’t want to be somebody that attacks me on the street. Because I will f***ing rip your head off if I get the chance.”
