She said: ‘It was a decision I didn’t take lightly. But I’m glad I did it, it takes the edge off. If unflattering photos of me go out I just don’t care… I feel like you have got to take the narrative of your own story.’  

‘The truth is I don’t care I’m not a model size 8. I did used to be. 

‘I absolutely loved being size 8 but now I’m a size 12, sometimes size 14 in bottoms because of my big legs and bum. That’s actually OK because I’ve never seen it as a plus size.’ 

‘Everyone should feel comfortable in their own skin. It makes me feel really sad that there’s people out there who think they can’t post bikini shots because they have a few rolls or they’re a bigger size than somebody else is.’
