Chrissy Teigen seems to think that models who Photoshop their pictures on social media are not being honest.
"I've seen these women in person," she told Meredith Vieira recently. "They are not like that. Please know that. I have shot in barely anything with them, and it's just amazing what people do to tweak themselves."
Chrissy Teigen is taking a different approach. She wants to see things handled more fairly.
"The standard is so ridiculous. I mean, people are nip-tucking. It's gotten to the point where they're not just smoothing their skin. They are actually changing the shape of their body. Nobody can compare to that when you’re fixing yourself so much. It’s so unfair. It started with Botox and everything, of course. But now it's just grown into this Photoshop phenomenon."
And to show she lives what she preaches, Chrissy Teigen recently posted a picture of her legs, complete with bruises and stretch marks.
And it was not an oversight. She meant to do it. In fact, she captioned the picture:
“Bruises from bumping kitchen drawer handles for a week. Stretchies say hi!”
Chrissy Teigen told Meredith Vieira how the pic happened and why she did it.
“I’m working on a cookbook, so I was bumping around the kitchen all the time and every door handle would just nick me every single time, and I was actually just taking a picture of the bruises and then I saw the stretch marks in there. I have those apps, those Facetunes, those Photoshopping ones, and I just didn’t feel like doing it anymore -- and I’m never doing it again, because I think we forgot what normal people look like now."
