These photos probably aren't what you'd imagine when you hear the words "retro pinup" — and that's a good thing.
"When I first heard Harper's Bazaar wanted me to be sexy," Metz told the magazine, "I was like, 'Who, me?' I knew y'all were edgy, but this is incredible — it's validation."
"If you can't love who you are now, you can't get to the place you want to be... It's a daily lesson for all of us," Metz told the magazine. "I'm paving the way for other women and men who know they're destined for greatness but they don't believe it yet."
She also noted that Hollywood is becoming more accepting of people who break the mold than it has been in the past. "There's more room for all of us now — no matter our sexuality, race, body size, gender, or whatever else," Metz told Harper's Bazaar. And that's a great thing.
