For fifty years, I was a part-time model, but basically, I'm a nutritionist, a teacher, a mother.
I eat the basic food groups: fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, good fats and oils. I do have butter on my bread because it's delicious. I eat meat, especially chicken, sparingly, because I'm not a good cook.
I don't accept bad manners, so all my grandchildren are very well behaved, just like my kids.
I like to tweet out nutrition research because I did my bachelor of science degree in dietetics.
When I was younger, I was mousey brown and started putting in highlights with each child. By the time I had my third baby, I was pretty much a blonde, and I stayed that way until I was in my late 50s.
I have to avoid sweet food because it's my weakness, and it's really hard. What you eat will definitely affect your skin, so I really try to stay away from sweets.
My parents were the only people to go to South Africa from Australia in a single engine plane... the two of them, no radio... you had to fly down low to see the street signs to know which city you were in... most people couldn't speak English.
My personal style icons are Diane Von Furstenberg and Linda Fargo. For strength and their own style, Christine Lagarde and Angela Merkel.
I started doing runway work when I was 15, and I remember meeting a model who was 30 - ancient, for the industry - and everyone was so happy to see her. As I've gotten older, I've experience the same thing. People are just thrilled to see me modeling!
Aging doesn't scare me at all. You can handle the bumps each year. They're traumatic when you're younger, and they're hurtful, and you go through some terrible times, and you feel terrible.
I've never been scared of aging.
Looking back, letting my hair go natural was an amazing decision because I started getting major ad campaigns. I also signed with agencies in Europe and travelled to many different cities, which I loved. People would stop me in the street and say they loved my hair!
I grew up in the happiest home - my parents were really adventurous, and I was very lucky.
I had two brilliant children and one genius. Elon could figure out things when he was very young and was always advanced for his age. He could hold a conversation about something that was way beyond his years, and he read voraciously.
For most of my adult life, I always had this pain in my gut, but because I had to survive, and I had to pay the rent, I needed the roof over our head and food for us to eat and some clothes.
I take 12-bean soup mixes, soak the beans overnight, boil them up, add tomatoes and flavoring, and freeze it. I'll have a cup a day. It's very nutritious.
