Casting Couch Confidential
Everyone is fascinated by glamorous, cut-throat industries like modelling, but most of us could never even come close to guessing what really goes on behind the scenes. Now it’s time to find out.
Bessie Bardot and Geoff Barker, former managing team behind the highly innovative modelling agency Bardot’s Bodies and both models themselves, have lifted the lid on an industry where beauty is often only skin deep.
Using their own astounding experiences and anecdotes, as well as the accounts of a host of models, photographers and industry insiders from around the world, Casting Couch Confidential is a collection of the most mind-blowing real-life stories imaginable.
This is the book that tells it like it is – a warts-and-all look at what it’s really like to put yourself on the line for fame. These are confessions from the fast lane: out-of-control shoots, sex and drug filled parties in the modelling capitals of the world, and the insane lengths the beautiful people will go to to stay that way.
But Casting Couch Confidential is more than just the expose of a very private world. It’s essential reading for anyone interested in a modelling career, as those who’ve made it to the top share their cautionary tales about the many pitfalls and traps of the fame game.
This is the book that redefines model behaviour.
