Ryan Seacrest confessed some crippling childhood insecurities to Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night.

“I used to hate spring break…because you would have to go to the pool or the beach and I never wanted to take my shirt off,” Seacrest said.

The American Idol host revealed that he was overweight as a child, and worked hard to get to where he is now and overcome his body issues.

“I definitely think that remembering how I felt back then drives me to stay fit as an adult,” he added. “I treat my workouts as one of the most important meetings of the day.”
