Stories of models all but starving themselves weeks before the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show have been circling for years. They also pretty much write themselves: "Look at these already-fit women dieting to become even skinnier! Isn't that groooss?" Surprise: the models know what reporters are doing, and one of this year's models finally called them out.
When a TMZ reporter asked Polish model Magdalena Frackowiak what she was looking forward to eating most after the show, instead of immediately gargling "pizza," she responded with one of these:
"What?" she said. "No, guys, not with these kinds of questions. This is stupid! Ask more smart questions, not eating after the show." With that, the reporter shrugged, "Alright, fair enough," to which she replied, "You make me look like an idiot! It seems like I'm starving myself and I can't wait for the show to end so I can eat."
TMZ eventually uploaded the clip into a Youtube video entitled "Backstage with Models Who Crave Fatty Foods." Cool.
