Demi Lovato is not confident enough to appear on TV again
The former `Sonny with a Chance` star is taking a break from acting after admitting her battles with self-harming and an eating disorder, and she doesn`t feel ready to be on camera again yet.
She told Britain`s Glamour magazine: "Right now I don`t need to get in front of a TV camera which adds 10 pounds and makes you feel more self-conscious about your body image. Being on camera makes me nervous. It takes a level of confidence and security which I`m still working on.
"When I`m ready I`ll find the right role and get back into it, but for now I`m being cautious.
"I`m walking with my head held high, but I never forget that I`m a work in progress."
Demi was admitted to rehab for her issues in 2010, and her time in therapy was intense, with her undergoing sessions lasting for over half a day at a time.
She explained: "I had 14 hours of therapy every day, so I definitely learned a lot about myself. For the first 48 hours I wasn`t allowed any communication with my friends or family, a lot of people give up and check themselves out, but I made it and I`m proud of myself."
Since rehab, Demi has been concentrating on her pop career, releasing her third album `Unbroken` last September.
