Red hair is an issue, particularly in this country.
Kate Moss has had such a phenomenal career and I wouldn't even like to compare myself to her. It's amazing that people are going to put my name close to hers.
I love modeling, but also see it as a platform for the million other things I want to achieve and create in life.
I have to admit I've always had quite a complex relationship with modeling and with the idea of advertising: not always knowing what I'm advertising and selling.
People do make assumptions about models. That's their issue, not mine. It doesn't bother me because I'm comfortable enough in my own skin - I know who I am.
I have made a living off the way I look, and I have really learnt to accept myself for being unusual.
Acting is something I've done since I was six years old, performing for my mum and my family in the living room, and I do it because my heart's in it.
