1There was a point in time when I was in dire need of changing the way the model agency was working.
2I think with most all of us, we want control of our image - it's part of the work that we do.
3Society says that men need to be bigger and stronger, and they must protect their women and so on.
4I'm not a vegetarian.
5I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia, an abnormal decrease of sugar in the blood. Eventually I learned to eat five small meals a day.
6Food should be raw, just the way God intended it!
7Becoming an actress takes a lot longer than being a star. I don't want to be a star. I want to be an actress. I want to build a career.
8Everybody's eating all my - brownies, granola, anything you eat cooked, I can find you raw.
9I am thrilled to be able to bring my vision of beauty to others who may be inspired by it.
10I don't eat celery. I eat raw milk, cheeses.
11If you could sit down with Jesus, you wouldn't need anybody else. He could answer all of your questions. Instead of Einstein and Louis Pasteur and Madame Curry, you could just have Jesus and he could answer for all of them.
12I went along doing the one-salad-a-night routine for a year. And I remember feeling so tired and depressed and irritable. I had no personal life. I was always flying someplace - weekends, holidays, vacations. Dinners at night were no fun because I couldn't eat.
13These girls come; they last one season; they're completely used up and dried out and sent back home. That's not how to make a life. I want a girl to come in knowing full well what she's getting into and being able to deal and make decisions that will create a career.
14It doesn't matter what age you are. You can look sexy and feel great, and that doesn't have to be a gift only for the young. It can be a gift for any age, even the old, whatever that is nowadays.
15Sometimes I get so wrought up being brushed, poked and pinned all day.
16I think that what scares me more than getting fat during pregnancy is the responsibility of a child.
17If you can eat 70 percent raw or introduce raw into your diet, it will help your health.
18I found my prince - he's a hockey player and we met at an NHL event, the last place I'd ever expect to meet someone, but there he was.
19I have a sentimental feeling for my very first cover I was on - it was 'Bazaar' Magazine.
20I run like an electric golf cart. Now I look at eating as a way to feed my body and keep me younger. It's not about starving your body, but treating your body like a Ferrari. You don't put in the crappiest gas you can find. You use supreme. In the long term, you'll run clean.
21If I'm making a movie and get hungry, I call time-out and eat some crackers.
22I never drank except a couple sips of wine at Thanksgiving.
23Because I was the first super-elite, the press caught on and started calling me a supermodel. So in that sense, I guess I'm the first. But, in my opinion, there were girls that could have been called supermodels before that, if the term was in existence.
24Sometimes fact is stranger than fiction.
25Elle Macpherson is absolutely amazing; she is just so beautiful.
26I didn't think there was life after modeling, believe me. It's a hit to the ego when you are not the diva on the set any more. But I think what keeps me going are challenges. I love when people tell me I can't do something.
27My mom cooked pot roast with noodles and frozen vegetables. Or she'd make spaghetti or hot dogs, or heat up TV dinners. Before I started modeling at age 19, I was 5'8" and weighed 165 pounds.
28It's not about failure; it's about trying something and risking something for attaining your goal.
29I'm not a fast driver. I've seen what speed can do.
30There was really no friendship in modeling, though a certain amount of warmth comes from running into models you know on shoots, because you end up in so many unfamiliar places, from Alaska to Africa.
31Just because you're beautiful, they think you can't act. It makes me work harder. I've got a lot to prove.
32When I start to sweat and get all red, they say, "Carol, we're ready to shoot."
33I have taken a Ferrari up to 185 mph.
34I never thought I was the most beautiful model out there or the most sexy woman, but I was a hard worker.
