I was a supermodel, now I'm so broke I'm getting a job in a supermarket, says Marie Helvin, 69 | The Sun

EX-SUPERMODEL MARIE Helvin has admitted she's considered getting a job in a supermarket because she's so broke.

The 69-year-old recently opened up about her financial struggles, confessing that she has thought about moving home to Hawaii, where she grew up.

The supermodel has had a very successful career since she was scouted in Japan at just 15.

She has appeared in many editions of British, French and Italian Vogue, as well as working for brands such as Yves Saint Laurent and Valentino.

However, the past two years have hit her hard.

Marie said: "I’m completely self-reliant, and I don’t know what I am going to do, because during the pandemic period, I’ve used up most of my savings now and I’m seriously thinking about going home.

The star has thought about getting a job in a food store where she grew up because she feels like she wouldn't be judged for it.

She added: "They have less stigma about age with getting jobs.

"You can get a job at Whole Foods in your 80s in America.

"Put it this way, I wouldn’t apply to work in Whole Foods here [in the UK]. But back home in Hawaii, if I needed to, I’d go there and work."
