Talking about being a model, Pyper tells the magazine, “I never even saw myself modeling when I was young, I was always like: ’why do I have these ugly huge eyes?’ My eyes were unproportioned to my face, I kind of had to grow into them. I didn’t think I was ever gonna model; I thought: ‘people think I’m funny looking’”.
