Chrissy Teigen On Modeling: 'I Don’t Take It Very Seriously'
Over the course of the last six months, Chrissy Teigen—Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover star, social media extraordinaire—has darted to the tip-top of our extensively researched girl-crush list. Through many an interview and LOL-worthy tweet, she’s proven that she never takes herself too seriously. It’s the “DGAF” attitude that she shares with Jennifer Lawrence and January Jones that provides such an appreciated contrast to her more calculated Hollywood counterparts, like Taylor Swift and Beyoncé.
Yesterday, Teigen appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers to chat candidly about the modeling industry and her new MTV show, Snack-Off (which, frankly, is exactly what it sounds like).
“Well, just being a model, you’re not really supposed to speak, ever, really, so I’m a rare breed,” Teigen told Meyers, in regards to her off-kilter candor. “And it does get me in trouble sometimes.”
When questioned about her dedication to the modeling industry, she refreshingly answered with something entirely obvious, but rarely vocalized: “I am paid a good amount of money to not blink for 12 hours,” she said. “That’s all that ends up having to happen. Listen, you get to travel, meet a lot of people; it’s fun, but I don’t take it very seriously, no.”
You heard it here first, people: Chrissy Teigen for the DGAF Queen of the World. We’d vote for her.
