You are no longer passing

Ashley Graham opens up about body backlash

Ashley Graham is tired of people "picking apart" her body. 

The plus-size model stopped by Good Morning America on Thursday (04Oct18) to discuss her new podcast, Pretty Big Deal.

And while chatting, she revealed she's had enough of negative comments about her curvy frame.

"I'm tired of people picking apart my body and telling me I'm not big enough, or telling me that I'm too big, I'm not healthy or I'm trying to lose weight," the 30-year-old sighed. "You're never going to be good enough for anyone. You're never going to fit into these narrow lanes that society has tried to put me in or many other women in. I think it's slowly changing, and I think that people are getting more sensitive to it, but we still have a lot of change that we need to do."

Ashley launched her podcast earlier this week, with Kim Kardashian invited on as the first guest.

New episodes will play every Tuesday, with the model excitedly sharing: "I'm a pretty big deal, and every single guest that comes on is a pretty big deal with me."

And talking about being a role model, the Revlon ambassador explained that she's happy to lead the way for other women.

"I believe there's no such thing as perfection, so why are we chasing it? I want to be a voice, and I want to pave the way," she said. "I still have to walk in and prove myself in a whole other way that makes people still say, 'Oh yeah, she is different. Maybe we should look at curvy girls now!' We are all the same. It doesn't matter our percentage of fat, thank you very much."
