On her life with Jason:
"Many models are in long-term relationships for stability. Admittedly, not always with great men, but it gives them something to come to, something grounding. That’s how I see my relationship."
"I can see why people think models come across as a little cold. When you start out, you’re so young you don’t have a voice. Everyone just tells you what to do and you can end up abroad in the middle of nowhere, with no one speaking English. It is very lonely… you develop a thick skin to protect yourself. Now I am 26, when I come on a set, I can say what I think and my opinions are noted. I’ve grafted hard to be hard to be here."
On ignoring the social media trolls:
"I read everything on the internet and I got destroyed by it. I panicked. I was unhappy because I was nervous and insecure, so I cut it off. Today I am in a healthier and happier place."
