On having cellulite and stretch marks:
It’s been a while now since I had that moment of having to get back in shape [after giving birth], but there should be no judgement, everybody’s journey is different. Of course, as I get older my body is changing, I’m a woman, but I love it. I love working out and I love being healthy but I don’t judge myself so much; I don’t care if I have a six-pack any more. I am inspired by all these amazing women who have fuller bodies and don’t care about cellulite. I have cellulite, too, and I have stretch marks. When I was younger I would be like, “Oh, my abs need to be firmer”; now I look back and I’m like, “You were crazy! Your abs were gorgeous!”
On being a commercial model:
My career has been such an evolution, it felt like such slow progress. In the beginning, I was sad that people in fashion didn’t think I was “cool” and that was tough. We all have so many different sides to us, different dimensions, so I was typecast as ‘commercial’ and therefore not fashion or edgy. For a long time, no one would book me for those jobs and I wanted it so bad, because I love fashion – I wanted to be part of those sets and where the magic happened.
