On never being told to lose weight:
‘Maybe I was just naïve, but I’ve never felt uncomfortable. All those stories you hear about fashion… Nobody told me to lose weight.’
On the hardest part of modeling:
‘The only thing that was hard was you literally go to ten castings a day and then you get zero jobs. Its a job, and if someone’s looking for something and it’s not you then that’s fine. You should accept it.’
On being scouted when she was not attractive:
‘I was scouted when I was 13 or 14… It was the most confusing thing ever – I was definitely not attractive. I was a geeky teenager; awkward and thin and lanky and weird. And I had strange teeth.’
