On how she is not trying to be sexy for her partner:
“I don’t do anything for my partner. Everything I do is for myself. I think the whole point of lingerie is to help you feel more confident in expressing who you are, it shouldn’t be so much about parading around for someone else.”
On her diet:
“I eat organic all the time. I drink at least 100 ounces of water a day and I drink less than 8 ounces of coffee a day.”
5’9” Victoria’s Secret model Jasmine Tookes shows off her toned and thin figure in a sexy photo spread in the January issue of South African GQ. Complete with mesh pieces, lace, leather and latex, the 26 year-old beauty sports wet locks and dewy skin.
On how she doesn’t get roles because she is too sexy:
Oh, she’s too sexy. It’s like an anti-woman thing, that people don’t want to work with me because my b~~~~ are too big. What’s wrong with b~~~~? They’re a beautiful feminine thing that needs to be celebrated. Like, who cares? They are great big, they are great small. Why should that be an issue? I am way more interested in working with unexpected and cool directors on interesting projects than being in this big studio movie where you’re in a bikini. I turn down a lot of movies, but I have to fight for the ones that I really want.
On how people believe she is too hot to be smart:
In every profile written about me, there is, ‘She’s so sexual and she’s such a sex symbol,’ paired with, ‘But, wow, she knows about politics.’ And that in itself is sexist. Why does it have to be one or the other?
On how women are perceived versus men:
Look at pop culture: Mick Jagger is 73, and he still sometimes wears his shirt open and gyrates onstage. We understand that this is a part of his performance and artistic brand. Meanwhile, when Madonna, who is 58 and a revolutionary in that same kind of artistic sexuality, wears a sheer dress to the Met Gala, critics call her ‘a hot mess’ who’s ‘desperate.’
