This wasn’t supposed to happen. I’ve always maintained that I’m an actress, not a model. This was for two reasons. One, I didn’t want to dilute my brand. I didn’t want to be seen as just another pretty face doing whatever I could to get in front of a camera. I much rather wanted to be known for my talent, which I’ve always believed in. Two, I’ve never seen myself as the model type. Industry standards require you to be 5’8″ and above, with clear/perfect skin, perfect teeth, and can fit into a sample size 4 or smaller. I’m quite happy with my body, but I don’t fit those stats. My skin is good, but not perfect. I like my smile, but my teeth aren’t perfect. I’m a size 6 or sometimes an 8. I’m good with that. I really don’t need to lose any weight. The only thing I’ve got going for me is that I’m 5’8″, right on the dot. Just barely tall enough. So for those reasons, I’ve never tried to be a model.
