Sophie Porley was told to bleach arm hair for modelling job

Share article:

Sophie Porley was once told she wouldn't be booked for a modelling job unless she bleached her arm hair.

The former "Hollyoaks" actress "can't understand" why women's hair "insults people so much", but admits she once shaved off her arm hair because all of her school friends were doing so, only to regret it afterwards.

She wrote on Twitter: "I can't understand why female hair insults people so much.

"I once shaved my arm hair because all the girls at school were doing it. It grew back stubbly, I hated it and never did it again. Years later I was told I had to bleach my arm hair for a modelling job otherwise they wouldn't book me because it would take too long to retouch. (sic)"

As well as not enjoying people being annoyed about female hair, the 31-year-old star - who played Ellie Nightingale on the Channel 4 soap - is also not a big fan of people chowing down on egg sandwiches on public transport.

Sophie departed "Hollyoaks" in September last year after playing Ellie since October 2015, and admitted she was "grateful" for the opportunity to portray the character and had the "time of [her] life" in the fictional Chester village.

What a bloody ride that was. I have had the time of my life the last 3 years. It really is one big family, the cast and crew work so so hard to put out 5 episodes a week!

& we still love each other at the end of each day.

"I'm so so grateful for the opportunity. And thank you to each and everyone one of you that supported me and the show over the years, you guys are the best! I hope Ellie is enjoying her life of travel now All the love (sic)"
