“Saying that you want to be a model when you grow up is akin to saying you want to win the Powerball when you grow up. It’s out of your control and it’s not a career path.”

“I got these free things because of how I look, not who I am. And there are people paying a cost for how they look and not who they are.”

“The thing we never say on camera is ‘I am insecure.’ And I’m insecure because I have to think about what I look like every day. If you are ever wondering, ‘If I have thinner thighs and shinier hair, will I be happier?’ You just need to meet a group of models because they have the thinnest thighs and the shiniest hair and the coolest clothes and they’re the most physically insecure women probably on the planet.”
