Molly recently revealed she'pretty much' starved herself after being told she was 'too fat' during her early days as a model.

She entered the profession in the 1990s during the 'heroin chic' era typified by supermodels like Kate Moss and Gia Carangi.

After dropping out of college, Molly ventured into the fashion industry, only to be admonished for her weight and her 'crooked' nose.

Having grown up in Kentucky where 'all they did was cook,' she began restricting her eating until she 'got down to pretty skinny, to pretty thin.'

Molly could be heard making the candid remarks in an episode of the podcast Getting Grilled With Curtis Stone.

Molly became a star in the early 2000s in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, but her journey to success was far from a smooth glide.

One of the early problems she encountered in the 1990s was that she would be upbraided for what she described as her 'very' crooked nose.

Photographers kept asking her to 'move a little bit' to the left or right, and when she eventually asked: 'Is there something wrong?' she was informed: 'Your nose is crooked. You're not symmetrical.'

As her career progressed, the 5'10" clotheshorse was criticized for being 'too fat, too big, too blonde, too dark. I mean, it was definitely a stressful time, which I think, you know, in terms of like, you know, food, it became very difficult.'

Molly noted that she grew up in a 'very Southern' family with a mother and aunts who fed her meals like grits and chicken, plus desserts like cakes and pies.

When she became a model, the 'transition' in her diet was difficult for her to undergo 'because I never really thought about food.'

In college, she was able to wolf down French fries dipped in a Wendy's Frosty - but in the fashion industry, her mindset changed.

'So it went from that to basically, I wouldn't say "starving myself," but pretty much,' the runway star confessed. 'So it was such a drastic - I had a lot of support from my mom and my dad, but it was hard.'

After being scolded that she would 'never work' because she was 'too fat,' she pared down her eating until she 'got down to pretty skinny, to pretty thin.'

However, she reflected that she was 'very lucky not to get too deep' into the effort to trim her figure down for the sake of her career.

However she still felt 'the pressure, the pressure of being sent back home and the pressure of not being able to - you know, when I went originally, they told me I was too fat. I would never, I would NEVER work.'

With hindsight, she reflected that modeling 'was like, you know, being a ballerina or being an athlete. You become very, very disciplined.'

A decade ago, she told Page Sixabout the 'modeling horror story' of having 'probably lost 25 pounds' after being instructed to slim down early in her career.

However she maintained that she 'ended up being OK' after her precipitous weight loss because she 'was healthy about it.'

She once told HuffPost Liveshe 'didn't eat sometimes for a couple of days' while preparing for a bikini shoot in the 1990s. 'And I used to walk 14 miles a day.'

Nowadays, the YSE Beauty owner is now known promoting the benefits of a healthy and balanced diet.
