What are your tips for being successful in a beauty-driven world?
“You have to be happy with the way you look. Like me. I never ever thought I would become a model. But I can do it! I can stand in front of a camera, or on a stage in front of a thousand people. Self-confidence! You can also only have a short shelf life in the fashion world so learn another trick, like juggling.”
Give me three reasons you don’t want to be handsome.
“One – personality makes it, I have a lot; two – why be a clone of everyone else?; three – if I were handsome I’d be boring.”

“If you look at a model agency’s book, they all look the same. I’ve trouble telling them apart unless they have a bent nose or a monkey eye. Beauty is just too uniform.”
