Rosie’s Sushi Shocker!
Gorgeous British Supermodel Told To Starve On Tiny Diet…
Victoria’s Secret Angel and actress Rosie Huntington Whitley (she was in the last Transformers movie too) has revealed in an interview with British paper The Guardian the extreme advice she was given when she first started modeling.
She revealed at the beginning of her career when she sat down with an agent to talk about where she wanted to go and what she wanted to do, they gave her what they called some “valuable advice” – in order to stay thin and secure gigs she should eat just one piece of sushi a day!
Thankfully, Rosie said her response was ‘go eff yourself’ and she promptly changed agents – but it’s an important message to those thinking of pursuing a modeling career about being true to yourself.
The 26-year-old is the face of makeup label ModelCo and says the industry has changed so much during her career because "Everybody wants to know the models."
"There's more engagement … You're no longer this one-dimensional image. It's more expected now for supermodels to be smart, to have opinions, to have a personality."
