Bella is interviewed by sister Gigi, and the first question cracks me up. I am so sick of self-appointed curators of models criticizing Bella for always having the same facial expression, writing in comments that she has no talent and is a zombie.
GH: Fans assume they know you because you’re in the public eye. But what is one thing people would be surprised to learn about you?
BH: That I never go a day without smiling. People always say I have the same facial expressions. But what they don’t realize is that for a long time I looked that way because photographers on set would direct me to look “bored” or “very nonchalant.” But it isn’t necessarily the way I really am. You’ve known me, of course, my whole life. And ever since I was a baby, I was always smiling.
