Jean Rosemary Shrimpton was born on November 6, 1942 in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. She is an English model and actress. Growing up on a farm, she attended school at Langham Secretarial College in London. When she met director Cy Endfield, she was encouraged by him to enroll at the Lucie Clayton Charm Academy’s model course. By the time she reached 17, she started doing modeling jobs, particularly being highlighted on several magazine covers such as Vanity Fair, Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar. She eventually became successful on her chosen field, making herself regarded as “world’s highest paid model”, “most famous model”, and “most photographed in the world” during her generation.
Admittedly, Jean said she loathes exercising since she was young. Luckily, she seems to have good metabolism since she was able to grace the runways with her svelte figure even without working hard to maintain such bod.
She also did not diet when she was younger– even up to these days. “I did eat well and I never really had to watch what I ate,” she revealed in an interview. To better take care of her health though, she makes it a point to have sufficient rest and water intake as much as possible.
