Chrissy Teigen has her moments of insecurity.
Teigen, who has a huge social media following thanks in part to her candidness, was just that in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter.
The 31-year-old model told the publication that she sometimes feels self-conscious about her own body due to what is depicted on social media.
‘There have been times I’ve cried to John [Legend], where I felt like I would never have that body,’ she said. ‘Everyone has a butt now and curves and a little waist and that’s not me.”
She added, “I’m jealous of those bodies and I want that, but I also feel like I really want to be cool with my body.”
Teigen, who sports a svelte figure, has stunned in Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret. Magazines known to airbrush their muses, Teigen says she consciously makes an effort to not do the same with her personal photos.
The cookbook author also said she does not post selfies with herself made up because it’s a misrepresentation of who she really is.
“That’s why I don’t post many makeup selfies, because I don’t feel anyone knows what a real face looks like anymore and it kills me that we have to completely wash a face or body out for it to get likes,” she said.
In a 2015 interview with Meredith Viera, Teigen reiterated similar sentiments, stating she no longer edits her photos for social media.
“I have those apps, the Facetune, those Photoshopping ones, and I just didn’t feel like doing it anymore, and I’m never doing it again,” she said. ‘When you’re fixing yourself so much, it’s so unfair.”
