Timberland just showed the fashion industry how to treat plus-size models 

Timberland’s new ad campaign for its limited Red Release Collection, features 23-year-old Paloma Elsesser, a model and writer who happens to be a full-figured woman and not white, in a media and fashion landscape that tends to favor slender, white models. But the best part? Her inclusion wasn’t even called out by the company.

A tale from the trenches by Jean Grant

“It’s all about sex. You want to make men want you and women want to be you.”

That’s what my (now former) acting manager said while we were picking my headshots. It was already a cringeworthy phone consultation with commentary like:

“Why did you curl your hair?”
“Did you even wash your hair?”
“That blazer looks too small on you.”

Until she finally voiced what she thought of me as her client: a sex object. And I said nothing.

At the ripe age of three, I told my mom that I wanted to be an actor. Little did she know how serious I was. After growing up in community theatre, graduating from drama school, and writing, producing and starring in my first short, I made the move to New York. But nothing could have prepared me for how many actors were also trying to make it on this tiny, overcrowded island. One thing was sure: I needed representation to avoid being swallowed up in unpaid, poorly written, questionable non-union web series and off-off-off broadway plays found on Backstage.

Through an industry networking studio, I met a manager. Let’s call her Kay*. At our first meeting in her New Jersey office, she told me I was fit, good-looking, and that she wanted to put me up for “Jennifer Lawrence roles”. Strong, intelligent women, in my mind. I thought I’d won the lottery. When I showed her my demo reel, she told me it didn’t represent the type I was. It was too hipster and too comedic (note that my reel was directly from my own short film). But since I had hustled to get representation for months, I didn’t want to blow my chance.

The first audition Kay got me was for a show produced by Alan Ball. I couldn’t have been more stoked. That is, until she told me, “It’s one line and it’s a sex shower scene with another woman.” My gut didn’t like this description but I kept telling myself it’s for an Alan Ball show it’s for an Alan Ball show you love the first two seasons of True Blood hello American Beauty you would be stupid to turn it down. She told me to wear a crop top and wet my hair for my self-tape. So I did. She also said to include “doe eyes” in one of my takes. Which I did. My favorite take was when I played the scene more tough and fierce. Kay chose the “doe eye” take. In the end, I didn’t get the role. It would’ve only paid me $800 anyway.

About a month later, I took the an amazing on-camera class. We dissected our type, the role of the casting director and how to be the best version of ourselves when auditioning. This class was life-changing as an actor. I got typed like Hilary Swank and Lake Bell. Tough and quirky. That felt right. It felt like me. After class ended, I sent Kay a video clip of my scene from Million Dollar Baby. Her response had nothing to do with my acting:

“Women with extremely fit bodies are all the rage in projects at the moment. Getting very limber, trim and extremely fit should also be a priority for you.”
