Some suggestions for you :

When I was a young girl, I lost a lot of weight over one summer - involuntarily - and was just really depressed and sad. There was nothing I could do to gain weight. I would look in the mirror and call myself disgusting every day.

I feel more comfortable when I'm lighter - I sleep better, I snore less, I have more endurance when I work out, my arms look better.

In high school I definitely had a clique of friends. And what I loved about it was that we were healthy and good girls.

I don't know how to be sexy on a date. Put up a camera and a wind machine, and I'll give you sexy. Put me at a dinner table with some candlelight and the moon shining in and, oh, I will give you dork.

From offstage until the moment I walk onstage, I constantly tweak my talk show and 'Top Model', but at the same time, I often leave my private life by the wayside.

The creation of my cosmetics experience has been years in the making.

I love being able to go to a store, let's say... a store like Topshop or Zara or maybe even Macy's, depends on what department, and not have to look at the price tag.

I wanted to be a film and television writer and producer.

I don't want to use the term 'plus-size,' because, to me, what the hell is that? It just doesn't have a positive connotation to it. I tend to not use it.

A size 16 can be the best shape for you, and you can be healthy.

When I went to Paris after graduating high school, I saw a model who was 12 years old without any supervision. That wouldn't happen in the acting world.

Believe it or not, I don't wake up looking like a supermodel.

My freshman year, I ran for student class president and lost. The next year, I ran for student class vice president, and I won.

I look up to Walt Disney and what he has done.
