"The industry has clearly changed for the worse. The sample sizes are now double-zeroes. Nobody but anorexic-looking 'coat hangers' will fit into that. Either you're naturally ridiculously thin or you have to really diet to get a job. And that's not a good thing."
While Porizkova admits that she occasionally misses the fame she enjoyed as one of the biggest supermodels of the 1980s,
the bookish beauty believes she may have found her true vocation as a writer. "My [husband] thinks I lost my true calling to be a librarian," she once joked. However, Porizkova says she always intended on becoming a writer: "I did always mean to eventually write. Modeling and acting just got in the way."
