At the end of the day, even the models, movie stars, and rock stars of the world are still just people with problems like anyone else. And their poop doesn't smell like roses either.

I didn't open the link, so I don't know what SHE said - I'm just responding to what YOU said.

You say these facts (if they are facts) in an accusatory way. It's not like being from an upper class family, or choosing modeling are wrong. So what if she decided to become a model? So what if she's from an upper class family? So what if her mother is successful in her own right? At the end of the day, she's still got to live with herself, her choices, her own character and the ramifications of her own actions. Personal satisfaction, joy, and success (or the lack thereof) have very little to do with external factors and much more to do with who a person is inside.

you might want to listen to the article. She is advising other girls not to become models since she feels it makes young girls feel self conscious about their bodies.

Maybe she doesn't understand that most young girls DO feel self conscious about their bodies...models or not.
