Contrary to the popular belief that ignorant jerks share, no we are not all anorexic or bulimic. Yes, it is a hard job.
We're talking nine hours of extremely uncomfortable poses, thick makeup, hot studio lights, exhaustion, and no lunch breaks.
As for runway shows, we are talking insanely high heels that no human should be able to walk in and live, but somehow we manage. These shows take all day to prepare for and once again, no lunch breaks.
Now for the emotional stuff. We have to stay confident, face rejection, and face the jealousy (no matter how undeserved) of our peers.
Next time you say being a model isn't hard, think again.
Model: Um, excuse me? how about you try it?
Idiot:Holy..... i had.... I didn't know.... I don't think I can move my legs...
Guy: Look at that girl over there!
Guy2: Oh yea, I heard she's a model!
Guy: DANNNG, hot, and she works her ass off!!!
Yeah, a lot of models ARE airbrushed--but it's ignorant to say that "OMG SHE'S SKINNY SHE MUST BE BULIMIC." There's nothing wrong w/ being a little skinny, the same way there's nothing wrong with being a little overweight. People should stop hating on skinny people.
Ignorant moron: WHAT? SO I CAN SEE SOME LAME ANERZIXC GIRL? No way!! I'm fat and proud!!!!
Normal person: Er, okay then..o___O
And Believe it, Modeling is NOT an easy job. Models are definitely not dumb and they have to have thick skin to face criticism from agents, designers, etc.
Yeah they make regular people look fat and ugly
