"It was like night and day from one day to the next. Also, I was subject to quite a lot of also personal physical scrutiny, and criticised quite a lot — the British press were actually quite unkind to me.I felt quite bullied, if I’m honest. I remember just thinking, “Okay, well, this is horrible and I hope it passes.” So I did strategically try and find smaller things, just so I could understand the craft a bit better and understand myself a bit better, and maintain some degree of privacy and dignity.’
‘I believe it is important to go on insisting that normality is not what we are exposed to. Honestly, among my acquaintances there is no woman wearing XS. No, sorry, there is one: my daughter. The point is that Mia is 11 years old. It's true that you need much time to get rid of the fat girl you once were, but you know I am sincerely grateful for my buttocks.'
Joel, I'm not a concept. I want you to just keep that in your head. Too many guys think I'm a concept or I complete them or I'm going to make them alive, but I'm just a fucked-up girl who is looking for my own peace of mind. Don't assign me yours.
