Singapore supermodel Sheila Sim is so scared of high heels, she once called in sick for a show. She also does not do lingerie and swimwear shoots or nudes.
The 27-year-old model was discovered when she was only 16 years old at her aunt's wedding. Her aunt is Singaporean supermodel Ivy Chng.
Only 17, Sheila found herself in Hong Kong to launch her career and soon landed jobs in Milan and Tokyo. At only 20 years old, she returned to Singapore and made her acting debut in 2008's Autumn In March.
Now, she has been recently appointed as an ambassador for the SK-II product range.
However, killer stilettos are her worst nightmare after she took a tumble on the catwalk a few years ago, she told Daily Chilli.
"Since then I've been paranoid about modelling in high heels, especially with a long dress on," she told the Malaysian website.
Sheila also does not do lingerie and swimwear shoots or nudes as she is not comfortable flaunting her body.
"I don't want my father, my grandfather or my relatives to see me like that. Not that I'm against others doing it, it can be good if it's artistic and tasteful. Your body won't stay like this forever," she said.
However, it is not a definite 'No' for Sheila:
"There may come a day, when I'm pregnant or at the peak of my looks, that I may do a nude shoot, so that when I'm old I can look back and show my grandchildren, 'This is how great your grandma used to look!" she added.
