Anne V shimmers on the cover of Ocean Drive magazine’s latest issue.
Here’s what the 27-year-old model had to share with the mag:
On dating in the spotlight: “Honestly, it sucks, but it is what it is. People don’t really realize that at the end of the day we all want to be loved. We all want to have normal families and relationships and kids. No one wants to get divorced and have someone create stupid dramas and articles about your relationship.”
On recognizing her beauty: “I’ve been modeling for 12 years and I can do it with my eyes closed. I know I’m pretty. But there are a lot of things that I don’t like about myself. I wish I wasn’t this white. I never get tan. I wish I could eat everything and not put on weight. Sometimes I wish I didn’t have freckles.”
On body issues: “When I was 18, I put on a lot of weight because I was eating pizza and pasta, and I didn’t know how to handle it. I never ate salads in Russia; we didn’t have salads. The only salads we had were tons of mayo in them. It was really hard, and I’ve battled with it for many years.”
