I can’t tell you how many times middle aged ladies at cocktail parties came up to us and suggested that Sara didn’t eat or needed to eat more, or that all models must starve themselves to look like Sara.

I remember hearing the bass from the show upstairs as the guards interrogated me.
I jokingly asked if they were going to water-board me but it fell on deaf ears.
Sara had moments of real hesitation to even show the film. I had access to film her in intimate moments, but we had to walk a fine line.
