“It’s a strange job where you’re considered to be perfect and beautiful. That’s not normal having that put on you – it feels wrong and uncomfortable”
“I was a hippy teenager. I had dreadlocks and wore longjohns”
“I always felt like I wasn’t totally accepted, like I was on the outside looking in. That’s probably what gave me a long career, because if I had been fully immersed, on a personal level but also by the industry, I might have burnt out really fast.”
“I don’t do it anymore, but if you read anything about yourself, it really messes with you”
