Quotes:

“I want my home to look good, feel good, and smell good. I want it to be inclusive, to reflect the people who live there.”

“Even in normal life, I’m not the skinniest model.”

“The good thing about people underestimating models is that the bar is set so low, you tend to impress people more easily.”

“Nobody in my family ever thought that I’d a be a model.”

“I just want to be a nice girl from the Midwest – I don’t want to have to act like a heavy to be taken seriously, and I resent that I have to be so pushy and political sometimes just to do my job.”

“How many girls, models or not, are secure about their bodies? I think I’m more realistic about what to expect of myself now. I also have a lot of other things than modeling going on in my life that I’m proud of.”

“I’m not a fan of fillers at all. If you’ve gone 35 or 40 years without big lips, I don’t think it’s time to start plumping them up artificially.”
