Liv Tyler Quotes
I definitely think the girls look too skinny now. I’m friends with models Helena Christensen and Linda Evangelista, and I remember Linda telling me that when she was a model in the nineties, a sample size was a 6 or an 8. Now a sample dress size is a 0 or a 2. That’s pretty alarming. There’s a lot of pressure on the models. It’s not healthy. I can’t even imagine what that’s like.
Fathers are very, very important in building the foundations and self-esteem of children. For me, the way that I was raised, consideration, courtesy and manners are really key and I think the father plays a big role in setting an example to children in how to behave out in the world and how to treat people. It’s a little bit different when it comes from the dad rather than the mum somehow.
We put so much pressure on ourselves as parents to be able to do everything, but children are very grateful and understanding.
