On why she’s always had insecurities:
‘My mother would get drunk and say, “Why don’t you move your fat a**?” So, I’ve always believed I had a fat a**. I modelled swimwear when I was 15, and even then, I didn’t think I had a swimsuit body. I was a cover girl, not a supermodel. I was neck-up – the face, the eyebrows – and I was always described as “athletic”, “not rail-thin”, “not a runway model”. Those messages, they seep into your consciousness.’
On raising two daughters:
‘[My daughters] are so much more mature than I was, so much more confident in their own bodies. They have the same stubbornness and strength that I do, but are more well-adjusted. I am jealous as all hell about that. But, of course, I created it.’
