Interviewer: Anna, We see your face everywhere these days. With such a busy, schedule, how do you manage to set priorities?
Model: My personal life comes first, then there's everything else - like work. I have my contracts and I do some magazine shoots because they're what keep it all going. But I've also learned to say no to certain things.
I: Not everyone's lucky enough to be able to turn down work.
M: I used to have trouble doing it - you get pressured a lot. But I've realized that I have to take a break once in a while.
I: When did you really start to feel well known?
M: After I did my second Vogue cover, I realized I'd arrived as a model. But it's really been the television and especially my Pepsi commercial. Some people never look at a magazine, but everyone watches TV.
I: Now you're quite a celebrity yourself. Just how much do you think the public is entitled to know about you?
M: Well, even on my show we try to make fun of the image. I think it's important to realize that I don't wake up looking like that. It's after a few hours of hair and makeup and great lighting - and retouching if I have a pimple. I'm pretty used to being in the center of activity, but sometimes I wish I could be just another girl at the gym working out. People don't need to know what I eat for breakfast. They need to know that I work hard. And that I have fat days and ugly days.
I: Having previewed your new exercise video, we find that hard to believe.
M: Oh, I have to work out. Some models don't, but I'm not one of them.
I: We hear you were also involved in the off-camera production.
M: Actually, I executive-produced it. That was a whole different role for me. I had the final say on everything from the cover design to hiring the director. That was great, but it was also my responsibility if something didn't work out.
I: Does all the TV and video mean you're giving up on a film career?
M: No, I would never rule it out. But I do find that I have an easier time being myself than playing a role. With acting, I don't know when I'm good or not. But with TV, I know.
I: People are always curious about celebrities' behaviour when they're away from the cameras. What's your "normal" evening at home like?
M: It depends on which house we're in. In New York, I'd be in the bathtub - I'm a real bath person - or reading or talking on the phone. If we're in the country house, where there's more room, I'd probably be in the kitchen.
I: Somehow, we just don't picture you running out to the supermarket to pick up a few things!
M: I do it. I don't get recognized as often as you might think - but I certainly don't go to the grocery store in full hair and makeup. That's asking for it.
I: Do you have any plans for the future that we should know about?
M: Well, the video comes out in October, so I'll be working on promoting that. And I'll be doing more with MTV and the Fox network - we're talking about doing a show on women who do really daring things, like parachuting and mountain climbing. I have my work with Revlon for a few more years, too. And of course, we'll eventually think about starting a family.
