Most people think that modeling is an easy job because all you have to do is look pretty, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Modeling is hard work and many models face intense scrutiny over the way they look. We have a list of 8 models who were told they needed lose weight if they wanted work.
8. Gigi Hadid
Getting into the modeling world wasn’t easy for Gigi Hadid. When she was first starting out, she was told that needed to lose weight. “My thighs were huge, they were like rock!” she said of her athletic physique. “I had like crazy muscles and I [ate] like a man – more than the man that I eat like now, like a bigger man – and it was crazy but at the time I didn’t care what my body looked like, I just wanted to be the best volleyball player I could be so it didn’t really matter to me.” Lucky for Gigi, she didn’t have to lose any weight and eventually found success with Guess, which led to other opportunities.
