Christy Turlington's modelling career has spun more than two decades but it looks like she's never been a real fan of it. Turlington, who is currently promoting her new documentary 'No Woman No Cry', recently spoke to the Telegraph who seemed more interested in finding out about her modelling career than the documentary aimed at supporting maternal health in developing countries.
The Cut pulled these interesting quotes from the feature:
On whether she considered her looks a curse:
"I used to think so, but I don't any more. When I was 18, and my looks were what I was - and all that I was - it did feel very limiting. It got to the point where I wondered what I was doing. But modelling gave me the kind of confidence that a lot of girls in their teenage years don't have. In the end, I think that the industry saved me from having to be self-conscious."
On charity work versus modelling:
"[T]here's nothing rewarding about modelling. It was a fun opportunity that allowed me to see the world but spiritually and intellectually there is nothing rewarding about the profession at all."
"We were this oddity that occurred in pop culture at that time. But I don't think we created anything; I think we just happened to be there at that moment... Maybe there haven't been that many at any one time again, but just think of Gisele [Bündchen] and Daria [Werbowy]. And look at Kate: I met her when I was 18. Her father worked for Pan Am and so did mine, so we had that in common. She was always funnier than everyone else, and savvy. What has kept her going all this time is the fact that nothing takes her over; it's she who takes over."
