Agyness






'These bruises? I’ll tell you. I’ve just come from a photo shoot where I had to jump naked off a fourth-storey fire escape. A fashion magazine had the idea of recreating a famous Fifties shot of a mother and child leaping from a burning New York building.

When it was first suggested I thought, “This idea is too mad, even for me.”

Then I thought about it and decided it might be a laugh. I’m not great with heights so when I got to the fourth floor I began to have second thoughts.

But I couldn’t face walking naked all the way to the ground having chickened out. So I jumped. Then I jumped again. I must have done about 50 jumps, landing on a stunt mat.
I had so much adrenaline pumping through me that I didn’t notice the pain I was in and it was only afterwards that I saw all the cuts and bruises. But I’m glad I did it. I find it hard to resist a dare.'

- Agyness in an interview for Live magazine, Mail on Sunday (Jul 08)
