It's no secret that the modelling industry is one of the most difficult industries to work in. Long hours, impossible pressures, and unrealistic standards of beauty have plagued this lucrative career path for decades now.

One such example of these impossible standards of beauty is 19 year old Swedish Model Agnes Hedengård. With an Instagram account to die for and seemingly perfect features, it's quite literally impossible to imagine that she is hard up for work. 


Surprisingly enough, that's just the case. Agnes uploaded a video to YouTube spilling the tea on something truly wild. Despite having a body mass index that classifies her as technically underweight, Anges says that she has been told by multiple casting directors that she needs to get in shape and lose weight. 

In the video, Agnes can be seen standing in front of her mirror as she describes, in near perfect accented English, just how hard it has been for her to make a living in an industry that sees her as fat. She stands in a bikini, exposing her stomach, legs, and bottom. By normal standards Agnes would not be considered "fat" by any stretch of the imagination. 

It's absurd and I hate it and I just want everyone to see this. You guys, I'm too big! Too big for the industry. But love yourself, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Agnes doesn't name any director or agencies by name but she doesn't mince her words either. All the agencies who told her she was too fat may be eating their words now. With over 2 million views on YouTube and an ever increasing profile, those booking agents might regret not being hip to Agnes beforehand.
