    ou'll probably recognize many of the women featured in the new HBO documentary About Face: The Supermodels Then and Now. They are some of the most famous and photographed models from the 1950s through the 1980s. Carol Alt and Beverly Johnson are two of the supermodels featured in the film. They are joined by director Timothy Greenfield-Sanders to talk with Fresh Air's Terry Gross about growing up — and growing older — in an industry obsessed with youth.

    For Johnson, starving herself seemed like part of the job. She was the first African-American model to appear on the cover of Vogue, and says "no one ever said I was too thin. And everyone kept giving me compliments on how great I looked, and I was just emaciated. That's the scary part, when I look back on it. And I do think it did a lot of damage to my body."



    Alt admitted to losing up to 50 pounds for a Sports Illustrated cover.
    "I just really stopped eating and could live on basically body fat for a while, and it was really the stupidest thing I ever did," she says. "Starving yourself is no way to get any kind of self-image, but when you're 17, you don't know any better."

    Both models were made aware of aging when they were still teenagers. Alt recalls her first shoot as a model.

    "The first thing the makeup artist asked me was, 'So what are you gonna do after modeling? ... It goes fast. You have to think of something you want to do after modeling.' So that first day I was already planning what I want to do when this is over.

    "I did posters, and calendars, and exercise videos, and books simply to keep me in the business because I didn't want it to end. I just loved what I was doing."

    Greenfield-Sanders conceived About Face in response to an idea: That the careers of models like Johnson and Alt are a "metaphor of how we grow old and deal with the changes in our lives, and here was this perfect group of people who were so beautiful. It was a hyper-look at aging."

    Greenfield-Sanders is a filmmaker and photographer known for his portraits of porn stars, world leaders and cultural figures. He's a contributing photographer for Vanity Fair, and his work can be found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum and National Portrait Gallery.

    Beth is out of their league. Her income is $100,000,000 a year.

    relations are strained between the Arab world and America, best to just let sleeping Horses lie.
