Models do not have it easy. They are under intense pressure to look a certain way and to fit in certain clothes. Their bodies are their jobs and people don’t seem to give a damn what they’re doing to themselves as long as they’re skinny.
When certified sex pot and underpants model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was first getting into the modeling game at 15, an agent who obviously was just looking out for* the baby model advised her to lose weight. This agent didn’t just tell Huntington-Whiteley to diet, but to sustain herself on an unbelievably small amount of food. The lingerie model told The Guardian that this agent encouraged her to eat “a single piece of sushi a day.” One piece of sushi for a day. One. Just one piece of sushi all day. JUST ONE. That’s such a scarcity of calories. Even the most mayo laden, avocado rich, tempura sushi would deliver an extreme calorie deficit if that’s all you ate all day. That agent might as well have told the teenaged Huntington-Whiteley straight up to go hungry.
But Rosie Huntington-Whiteley luckily was not so malleable and did not fall for the agent’s sick pressure like so many other young models would have. She claims that when the agent requested she eat next to nothing, her “eloquent response was: ‘Go fuck yourself!’” What a bad ass! Her teenager attitude really came in handy in that moment. Honestly, her response is the only acceptable response when someone basically tells you to starve to death.
If anyone ever tells you to do something outlandishly dangerous, give them the ol’ Rosie Huntington-Whiteley treatment and tell them to fuck themselves.
*Kidding, the agent was obviously just looking looking out for themselves/the bottom line
