lol, that's such a dumb stat. i've met literally dozens of "models" and "actresses" over the years, but besides their headshots, almost none had a working portfolio. i met an actress recently who really was in a movie tho. well i caught the movie on late night cable, an indie from last year, and it was so bad that i don't know what to say to her the next time i see her. she's a bartender in a joint near my job, so i gonna have to avoid the place...
