Despite this, she said she has turned down many offers including Dancing with the Stars and only shot with the controversial Terry Richardson once, "I’ve shot with him, but I didn’t feel comfortable and I won’t do it again." Coco stresses the importance of not just being a model, but also a role model and has begun speaking out about the unhealthy pressures in the fashion industry.
Amazingly, she claims to have been turned down for some jobs for being a US size 4 (that's a UK 6!). Fortunately, Coco is confident enough to not let it faze her explaining,
“It hurt at the time, but now I say, ‘You can’t dance with everybody. Someone else will come along.’ I think once James was really part of my life, I was like: ‘Whatever. If you take me, take me. If you don’t, don’t. I’m happy in my skin.’”
I am, maybe naively, shocked that this kind of ridiculous expectation still exists even with well known names like Coco. Are you surprised to learn this?
