Model Behavior3 of 15
On her first Victoria's Secret show: "I had to grow some balls pretty fast. I was trying to fit in, but I really didn't. I was just pretending. That's what you learn in this industry. You're always being looked at and judged. You have to learn to accept that."

But as hard as it is, so is life … a curveball just comes at you … It hits you in the head from the side that you didn't expect."
