'Duck Dynasty's Sadie Robertson Was Told To Lose Weight If She Wanted To Model

There's no denying that Duck Dynasty's Sadie Robertson is absolutely gorgeous, but that doesn't mean that the reality star hasn't had her issues when it comes to her self-esteem and body image — issues that were definitely not helped by an awful experience in the modelling world that she's opened up about in a new, emotional interview.

Sadie explained that while she was modelling, she was told she would need to lose weight.

“I did modeling for a little bit and it was so hard. And I remember the guy came and grabbed my side and said, ‘if you would just 10 pounds, you would look like a real model,'” Sadie opened up in a recent episode of At Home With The Robertsons.

“I was really tiny," Sadie went on.

"It really hurt me. And I was like, ‘oh man, that really messed with me’,” Sadie explained. “I hate that part of it. I don’t think it’s the pageant’s fault or modeling [industry’s] fault but I think that’s how we do it….and how we treat it,”

“I remember I was doing a no makeup photoshoot and I was so excited because I was like, ‘I get to show girls that this is what I really look like,'" Sadie said.

“I got there, and the photographer said, ‘she doesn’t really have a face for no makeup.’ And they called in the makeup team and I was just crushed,” Sadie explained.

What an incredibly rude thing to say — and that's without even mentioning that Sadie (and everyone else) definitely has a face for no-makeup! That's just our FACE!

Luckily, it doesn't seem like Sadie has let those experiences get her down.

Sadie is currently due any day now with her first child, a daughter, and is enjoying a pretty successful career as a podcast host, author, and reality star with 4.3 million followers on Instagram alone! I'm sure whoever told her she wasn't quite model material must be kicking themselves now!
