“People found me ugly and weird looking. All those years of that whole insecurity thing just makes you feel horrible then really slowly you start to think if they can make me look nice in the picture then it’s not that bad.”
“People were like, “Oh maybe we can change your teeth” and I thought that was going a bit far. You have to be really strong in this job and realise that you are your own boss and if someone tells you to do something, you don’t have to do it. I really like my teeth.”
“Most people can be made to look beautiful – someone can do your hair nice and put some make-up on – but being sexy is something inside and not everybody has it. I don’t think I ever really had it, a lot of it is to do with confidence.”
