Suki’s wage woe as a young model
SUKI WATERHOUSE, who stars in new Amazon Prime TV series Daisy Jones & The Six, claims she was exploited by a model agency when she was a teenager.
‘If I got paid a couple of hundred pounds a show, they would organise me to get an envelope with some money in it and they would say: “Get on the bus and come back to the agency and give us the cash,” and then I would never see the money again,’ says Suki, 31. ‘ It would go towards expenses.’
The actor/ singer girlfriend of Twilight star Robert Pattinson adds that the first few years of her modelling career involved ‘toppling around London in ginormous heels, because I wasn’t very tall, and spending the summer trying to change my body and get really skinny so that they’d be happy with me’.
