Linda: (on not worrying about pregnancy affecting her figure) I'm doing everything to go through this as smoothly as possible. I'm either doing yoga or exercising every day.
Linda: I use Botox, and I'm not afraid to say it, though I do like to keep some movement in my face. For me, it's just enhancement, like hair colour or make-up or any other tricks you can do to make yourself feel better.
Linda: I don't diet. I just don't eat as much as I'd like to.
Linda: People think modelling's mindless, that you just stand there and pose, but it doesn't have to be that way. I like to have a lot of input. I know how to wear a dress, whether it should be shot with me standing or sitting.
Linda: There was a time when everyone remembered that stupid thing about me not getting out of bed for less than $10,000 a day. These days, it's far more important to me that I'm part of a team which raises over $1 million a month for Aids. I'm much more proud of that, than that other old quote.
Linda: It was God who made me so beautiful. If I weren't, then I'd be a teacher.
