There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that Chrissy Teigen is anything but honest. She speaks her mind and tells it like it is, no matter what it is. In a recent interview she got pretty candid about having breast implants, her struggles with depression, motherhood and more. The former model speaks about when she got the implants and why she wants to get them removed now. She said, “Yeah, I did my boobs when I was about 20 years old. It was more for a swimsuit thing. I thought, if I’m going to be posing, laid on my back, I want them to be perky! But then you have babies and they fill up with milk and deflate and now I am screwed.”
When Teigen was asked if she had her breast augmentation for self-esteem, she said this, “Honestly, I kept them the same cup size. I just filled them out, so they are rounder and firmer. I had a quarter ‘teardrop’ cup in the bottom and filled out the breast line. But I want them out now. If I could do one thing, it would be to have a lift. I think you’re supposed to replace [implants] every ten years. But when you have kids you think about [the risks] of surgery and I think, ‘This is not the way I want to die, in boob surgery.”
Joking around about dying during ‘boob surgery’ aside, Teigen really wants to set things straight in the beauty industry. She said, “You can’t set these expectations for people that everything is perfect. Everyone filters their sh*t, edits or Facetunes so you forget what normal faces or bodies look like. It’s not fair and it makes you jealous of other people’s bodies. It’s lying to people by omission. But also, while you want to teach your kids to be comfortable in their own skin, you want to tell them everything you can and let them decide.”
The mom of 2 also spoke about her insecurities, including her “pug face.” She said, “If you hear the same comment over and over again, it gets to you, But when you are happy in other aspects of your life, you care less about it. When I see my crazy, weird smile and my teeth being too big for my mouth, I see it as showing genuine emotion and happiness, so I don’t see it as a negative thing any more.”
After her 2 pregnancies, Teigen reveals that she used to weigh herself every day. She spoke about it, saying, “I knew what the scales would say after each meal,” she revealed. “I did that for eight years and had this one weight I wanted to be at. That changed with Luna, and really changed with Miles [her son, two], where it took me a year to be comfortable with my new normal number.” But she is very happy that she no more is living up to an unrealistic body ideal.
Chrissy plans on being kinder to herself and her body image. She continued on, “I don’t feel like my body is where I’m going to be s***ty to myself, either, ’m already thinking enough things I am mad at myself about, I can’t add my body into it. It’s very fulfilling not having that pressure of putting on a swimsuit and looking good for a magazine while running around a beach, which I did when I was modeling.” Rock on, girl!
