Jean Shrimpton Quotes:

“You never like your looks,” she said. “I thought I was too ‘pretty, pretty’ and a bit vacant-looking. I think if you are prone to neurosis, which I might have been, you never think you are that pretty. You hear models say that all the time. I was more interested in animals, so I wasn’t bothered at all about my looks.”

“I never likedbeing photographed. I just happened to be good at it.”
