Kendall Jenner's modeling career is in full bloom, with the reality star most recently landing a huge campaign for Estee Lauder and her own Vogue spread.

Still, she's had to face some pretty intense scrutiny by the public and the media. Back in September, an Australian tabloid posted a pic of Kendall at Tommy Hilfiger's New York Fashion Week show with the headline "You're Too Fat for Runway." Inside, they showed what they claimed was cellulite on the back of her legs.

In a new interview with Nightline, Kendall opened up about "I think the picture was Photoshopped, so that was...not cool," she explained.

When asked why she didn't call them out, she showed that she has a thick skin and can compartmentalize it. "I don't feel the need, you know what I mean? Let them do what they want to do, let them sit behind a computer and write stupid things about a young girl and make her feel bad about herself. I think it's cruel and I think it's evil."

Also in the interview, Kendall spoke about her parents' divorce, saying, "I try to think of it as it's not the worst thing that could have happened."

"I still am so close with both my dad and my mom," she explained. "Nothing has really changed, except for the fact that now my dad lives on a beach, which is awesome."
