During a recent phone call with a friend, Eva Herzigova started talking about the longevity of her career. Spanning 24 years, graduating from commercial model to pin-up, editorial to catwalk, achieving supermodel status in the ’90s – a title that she still holds – she is as much in demand now as ever. “I just don’t get it,” the (thankfully, very close) friend replied.
“He said, ‘Your age starts with a four, you are a hermit, you never go out and you have integrity. Usually, people like you do not recognize success. It doesn’t make sense!’” Herzigova laughs. “I replied, ‘I’ve always worked hard and picked the right work.’ But he pointed out that, in this society, where people sell their souls on Facebook and Twitter, I don’t go out there selling myself – I am very private. It makes no sense to him I still get work!”
