Crystal Renn talked to the ladies of the "Today Show" on Thursday morning about the recent controversy surrounding her weight and photographs that she said were Photoshopped to make her look thinner. She explained, "I understand a reasonable amount of retouching, if there's a zit, for instance or you want to smooth things out. But to change my body completely, that's not what I'm about, that's not my message and that's not important to me." She also remarked, "Plus-size...some people scoff at the name, but I think it's amazing to be a part of the entire thing. What I think would end the confusion is if we call all the models just 'models.'" While Renn did look slimmer on TV in comparison to earlier this year, she said it was because she just started an exercise routine, but emphasized that she's not trying to lose weight.
