Jourdan Dunn Was Told She Was "Too Skinny" to Work

British model Jourdan Dunn has revealed that as a teenager, she struggled with self-esteem issues and disliked her own body. She admits that her struggle was so bad, that at one point she didn't like going out: “I didn’t want to leave the house. I didn’t want to look in the mirror. I would feel physically sick. I hated being me. I hated going to school. I already didn’t like the way I looked and now people were making me feel bad.” 

 She adds that after she was scouted, she was often told she was too skinny to work which caused more damage: “Once I did get scouted, and would get turned down for jobs because I was so too skinny, it was really damaging for me.” She says that she finally managed to turn things around when she realised she had to support her son: “I thought to myself: Jourdan, you have this great career in front of you. You can set your son up for life. Just go for it.”
