Today in unrealistic beauty standards, model Erin Heatherton reveals Victoria's Secret told her to lose weight!
Yes, the 5-foot, 9-inch model with a 24-inch waist was told she wasn't skinny enough for the lingerie company's infamous runway show.
"My last two Victoria's Secret shows, I was told I had to lose weight," she told Time magazine's Motto website. "I look back like, 'Really?'"
The blonde beauty went on to share that the pressure to stay thin made her depressed and almost led to an eating disorder. She added, "I got to a point where one night I got home from a workout and I remember staring at my food and thinking maybe I should just not eat."
After five years with VS, the runway star has decided to retire her angel wings to focus on her health and well-being.
"I realized I couldn't go out into the world—parading my body and myself in front of all these women who look up to me—and tell them that this is easy and simple and everyone can do this."
