This is a first: Plus-size model Ashley Graham (29) plays Joe Jonas’ love interest in the new DNCE video ‘Toothbrush’. Check the steamy video below!
On how she got the job:
The DNCE team reached out to me and said that Joe personally selected me for the video and didn’t have anyone else in mind for the role. How could I say no to that?!
On playing the love interest as a plus-sized girl:
I work so hard to challenge conventional beauty standards. So often we see the typical “video girl,” who’s definitely not a size 14/16. It doesn’t accurately portray what our world looks like, especially because the average size woman is a size 14. It’s really important that all industries celebrate diversity, especially diverse body types.
