THE modelling world can be filled with bitching, back-stabbing and a good measure of Botox.
While plenty of Irish models rely on top surgeons to enhance their assets, Tipperary native Roz Purcell (22) says she won't be going under the knife or needle anytime soon.
"No, I wouldn't get it done now," Roz told the Herald. "But you know what they say; never say never. Maybe when I'm around 50 or 60, I'll go nuts and become that crazy-looking woman with loads of it but not at the moment," she laughed.
Roz is one of the most in-demand models in Ireland and says the Irish industry is one of the most supportive and 'model-friendly' in the world.
"I think girls who haven't worked in the UK or States don't realise how lucky they are here.
"Whatever shape you are in you can find work," she said. "Especially for girls who aren't tall – all the press calls ask for smaller girls.
"But there's no pressure to get work done or lose weight. Ifnfact if you lose too much weight – you'll get given out to," she said.
Roz says she's all about staying fit and healthy.
"Fitness is really important to me. I cycle and swim a lot. I don't believe in any extreme diets – like only eating protein or whatever. I eat whatever I like and work out whenever I can."
Roz was speaking at Marks & Spencer's Produced in Ireland cookery series.
