Claudia Schiffer has brushed aside the size zero controversy by
saying “models have always been thin" and there"s no reason to
believe they are unhealthy. "No I don't think so, because I think
models have always been thin, ever since I can look back anyway -
I've never... no I don''t think there has ever a moment where it's
been any different," the Mirror quoted Schiffer, as saying at the
Elle Style Awards.
The 39-year-old German beauty added: "The most important thing
is that they are healthy. There will always be an exception
somewhere, within any profession, whether it's acting or singing.
There will always be that one person that is unhealthy and doesn't
eat anything and God knows what else they do.
"I mean, you should be able to spot that, if you are a company
or a designer you should be able to say this one particular person
is not healthy and maybe we shouldn't use her. "But in general I
think, you can be thin and be healthy, you can be bigger and be
healthy as well, you know. It just depends."
