“It’s come up a few times in the last few years, like, ‘You’re too fat for this,'” Benson said. “And I’m just sitting here like, ‘Wait, what? Do you want a skeleton?’ But I feel good. I don’t want to lose 20 pounds, because I don’t need to.” (RELATED: Gigi Hadid Defends Her Assets On Instagram: ‘Yes, I Have Boobs’)

“I get told all the time to lose weight,” she added. “I got that a month ago. It’s just weird.”

But Benson said she’s confident with her curves.

“With my stuff recently, it’s been, ‘You have to be skin and bones or you’re not getting it.’ There was a point where it was getting to where a size 2 was great. I’m a size 2, but I think that a size 4 is healthy.”
