Supermodel Angie Everhart on Being Bullied in School | Where Are They Now | Oprah Winfrey Network


My hair was my career. My hair was my advantage. They said, you know, it’s
gonna be really hard for you as a redhead,
because there’s just no redheads in the business. They told me I’d never get a
skin campaign, and I got one. They said I would never
do Sports Illustrated, and I did that four times. I was the Pantene
girl, the Finesse girl. I became the first redhead
ever to be on the cover of American Glamor. You know what
helped me, is being pretty much in the right
place at the right time. I was in a fashion show, and
there was New York agents there, and one of the
agents came up to me after the fashion
show and said, do you want to come to New York? And I’m like, today. I was only 14 when
that happened, so I had to finish school. I had to get an
agency, and I had to– there was
steps I had to take in order to get out of school. I was a tomboy growing up. At school I was tortured. I have been called every
single bad name you can ever be called as a redhead. But, you know, it
gave me thick skin. Growing up in Akron was never
boring, because, you know, I was the youngest
girl out of four boys. I had one date come to
my house, and they let our very mean dog, Dudley, out. And that was the first and last
time someone came to my house. I have really great memories
of coming from Ohio. It’s midwest. You have the midwest
values, and, you know, it’s a great place to come from. Paris is where I
learned how to dress. Paris is where I learned how
to hold the knife and fork. Paris is where I
learned to speak French.
