On how her weight scared the men in her life:

‘I’ve lived the torment of boyfriends breaking up with me because they were afraid I was going to be too fat later in life.’

On her insecurities:

‘I wake up sometimes and I think, “I’m the fattest woman alive.” But it’s really about how you handle it when you wake up. I look in the mirror and I have my affirmations. And mine are simple. [I say], “You are bold. You are brilliant and you are beautiful.” And then if my lower pooch is really puffing out that day, I say, “Lower pooch you are cute.” And we have a moment. And if the hips are really popping I say “I love you too hips.” Having more role models, more women who are like “Yea, I have cellulite. Yea, it’s even on my arms, not just my legs. My butt is a really bizarre shape but you know what, whatever, I’m just going to go rock it.”‘

On her career:

‘I think that my career has been a huge testament to how the industry is changing right before our eyes. I don’t think that a girl my size, as a model, would ever have been on the cover of Vogue and I’m still so shocked at that.”

On her enormous Instagram fame:

“As soon as I became the most followed person on Instagram, I sort of freaked out. It had become so consuming to me. It’s what I woke up to and went to sleep to. I was an addict, and it felt like I was seeing things I didn’t want to see, like it was putting things in my head that I didn’t want to care about. I always end up feeling like sh-t when I look at Instagram. Which is why I’m kind of under the radar, ghosting it a bit.”
