Quote of the Day
Modeling, for me, isn't about being beautiful but creating something interesting for people to look at and think about.
With modeling, you pose. You want to look your best all the time. With acting, you have to be aware of the camera, but the more you show your imperfections, the better you're going to be.
I've always seen modeling as a stepping stone.
Modeling is a profession where your worth is tied up with looks.
Modeling is really silent acting.
If I tried to start modeling right now, I wouldn't be a supermodel because it's all about celebrity.
One of the things that fascinated me about modeling was that you had the freedom to look any way you wanted.
I was successful and I enjoyed modeling, but it got to a point where I felt like I had 'been there, done that.' I wanted something that would inspire me and challenge me. I needed something that required more creativity. I started writing and I started auditioning. Simply posing in front of the camera was no longer enough.
I was told I was fat in the modeling world, and a director on a shoot told me I needed to lose weight. The J-Lo booty wasn't popular then, and I wanted to be the perfect Hollywood girl - tall, blonde and skinny. I couldn't do the 'tall' because I was 5'2, and I couldn't do the skinny, either.
When you're modeling you're actually acting for the camera and the photographer. It's more fun, too because there are no lines to memorize.
I always knew I wanted to be in films but didn't want anyone to taunt my parents. So I excelled in studies. I was a topper in school and college, so when I decided to become a model, people said, 'Oh your daughter is modeling,' so at least my parents could say, 'Yeah but she also came first in class.'
The ideal girl is driven, working on something other than modeling or being a singer.
I was 14 when I started modeling. At the end of that first day my mum said, If you want to do this, you're on your own because I'm not traipsing around London ever again like that. It's a nightmare.
I wanted to go to acting school, and I did a few modeling jobs to pay for acting school. I never aspired to be a model. I met lots of photographers, and I learned a lot about light - as a source of love and illumination, light as a gift of love. On film, that's a massive contribution.
I have to admit I've always had quite a complex relationship with modeling and with the idea of advertising: not always knowing what I'm advertising and selling.
I was discovered in Paris when I was there on a school trip at the age of 13. After that, my mom came in contact with Elite Amsterdam; then I started modeling.
Modeling is the best because you have to look hot, which comes easy to me, you know. I'm blessed with that.
Modeling is the world that I feel most welcome in.
This modeling thing, it's pretty easy, but actually it's also really tough.
The world of modeling can be hard; just as cruel as it is glamorous.
I believe in miracles. At the age of 13, I was on holiday in Moscow with my mother. It was the only trip I took in my whole childhood. We stepped off a metro train and were approached by a talent scout who told me that she wanted to sign me to her modeling agency.
There was really no friendship in modeling, though a certain amount of warmth comes from running into models you know on shoots, because you end up in so many unfamiliar places, from Alaska to Africa.
The research rat of the future allows experimentation without manipulation of the real world. This is the cutting edge of modeling technology.
I love acting. I do it as a hobby. If I was able to have that as a career... Hopefully the fashion thing is a stepping-stone. I was so worried when I started modeling that it would hinder my chances of acting.
Modeling was never a passion of mine.
