130 pound, plus-sized Anna retained marital “intimacy” by not stripping.
The first model to be eliminated from America’s Next Top Model 2 was 24-year-old Anna Bradfield, who refused to be photographed nude while covered in body paint. She tells TV Guide, “I really believe that if I would’ve done that, my intimacy with my husband would not have been special anymore.” Perhaps more shockingly, Anna was referred to as a “plus-sized” model, even though she weighs 130 pounds and stands 5’8″. She says, “With those stats, in the modeling world, you are considered plus-sized.” TV Guide also follows up on her comments about her religiosity, or lack thereof. “I’m not religious. Like I told Janice, I just try to be Christ-like. It’s more about having a relationship with Christ in spirit than being religious,” she says.
