Many modern celebrities don’t prioritize an facade of flawlessness, favoring honest, relatable, and often humorous accounts of everyday life in perfection’s place. And Chrissy Teigen is leading the charge with the “they’re just like us!” accounts. The model/dream BFF always keeps it 100: To her, no blemish, controversy, or “flaw” is worth hiding for the sake of a perfect image. Below are times when the star was literally all of us.
See 5 moments when Chrissy Teigen was super relatable.
Like Kylie Jenner before her, Teigen learned that drastic dietary changes don’t always work in a day. She managed to go vegan for a whole 12 hours but then she switched back to being an omnivore. Let’s be real: We’ve all been there with one juice cleanse or another.
2. She’s had #struggles while working out
Ever been in a boxing class where you just can’t nail down that punch combination? While vacationing in Bali, the supermodel shared a glam version of that—she couldn’t get herself out of mid-inversion during aerial yoga.
The painful parts of that time of the month—cramps, bloating, and irritated skin—are all too familiar, even for The Lip Sync Battle co-host, who took to Snapchat to lament about her “angry” blemished period skin.
4. She’s open about her stretch marks (yep, she has ’em)
Stretch marks are not exactly featured front and center on magazine covers or red carpets—even though most women have them. Teigen knows they ain’t no thing—which is perhaps why she shared hers on Twitter with the caption “whatevs.” Same.
Even though Sunday Funday might sometimes call for a drink or two, alcohol—even when you pick a better-for-you tipple—can bring you down, cause bloating, and irritate your skin. Teigen shared another reason for taking a break from the booze with Cosmopolitan: “I felt bad for making kind of an ass of myself to people that I really respected,” she said. It’s Teigen’s ability to spew that kind of #realtalk that makes her fans respect her even more.
