On being rejected at the beginning of her career at castings for not being skinny enough:

I was so used to people criticizing me for being too thin that it was shocking to me.

On wanting to join Victoria’s Secret:

My agent said: “They want to see you. If you get the show, will you move to New York?”‘ she recalled. ‘I said: “If I got Victoria’s Secret, I’d do anything.”

On her workouts:

I’m an athlete. I use every single muscle, especially my core and arms, when I pose. It’s so important for me to feel strong. When I have a show or a specific shoot coming up, I train for it full on, like an athlete would train for a game. It used to be that if you had a swim shoot, you’d go away for two weeks and spend the first four days getting a suntan. Now we work 12 hours a day, every day, and I can be on a plane every two days.

… says Candice in Self Magazine.
