      Love this glimpse into the modeling world, which I know nothing about. Reminds me of Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar and makes me miss New York. Beautiful reflections on compromise, childhood, growing up. If I ever have children, I hope they don't want to be models.

      He's like, 'Why do you want to do this?' And I said, 'Because I want to be a star.' It didn't mean that I want to be famous. It didn't mean that I wanted everyone to know me, it just meant that I want to be a star to myself. That I wanted to be successful to myself, that I wanted to go somewhere with my life and I wanted it then, I wanted it now.”
