"It's not like [I] wake up in the morning going, 'Oh I'm so perfect, I don't need to do anything,'" supermodel Helena Christensen tells the Telegraph. "Every [model] I know in this business has the same issues as every other woman, maybe more so. You can easily be made to feel self-conscious in this job... I box twice a week when I'm at home in New York. When I'm away, I'll try some pathetic attempt to do 10 push-ups and lunges in my hotel room, but I have this wall I need to get over in my mind before I can work out." [Telegraph]
