Chrissy Teigen, the gorgeous wife of singer John Legend, was once fired from a modeling gig for Forever 21 for being too 'fat.' The model, who appeared on the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover, is laughing all the way to the bank these days. Back then, however, it must have been a bit humiliating.

It was apparently a few years back when Teigen, who recently admitted to 'hooking up' with her hubby on their first date--showed up for the photo shoot for Forever 21.

“I showed up on set,” she said in an interview with DuJour magazine. “And they asked me if they could take a photo. And they shot the photo over to my agency who then called me as I’m sitting in the makeup chair. And they say, ‘You need to leave right now. You are fat. Come get your measurements taken.’”

Chrissy Teigen claims she had some 'choice words' for Forever 21 following that unpleasant incident. She doesn't have trouble coming up with the right words in most situations with the exception of one main topic. She doesn't talk publicly about either her diet or her fitness routines.

“That kind of stuff is very private to me because I do feel like when I do end up sharing stuff like that either it doesn’t work for everybody or everyone has their own opinion,” she said.

She did share something that's really rather unusual for a model--especially one who has gotten the kind of coverage that she has. Despite her flawless beauty, Chrissy Teigen doesn't wash her face before she goes to bed at night.

“My face never looks better than when I get off a plane,” she said in the magazine piece. “Because I never wash my face before bed, ever, in real life, but on airplanes the second I get in my seat I use my face towels, I’ll use a nose strip, I’ll do everything.”

Ladies, don't take this as sound advice. Most people would wake up looking horrible--or at the very least have breakouts and a very unpleasant complexion--if they didn't wash their face and remove their makeup before calling it a day.

Chrissy Teigen was no doubt gifted with some amazing genes. Not only is she gorgeous--just ask hubby John Legend, on whose music video 'All of Me' she appears--it's clear she doesn't have to work hard to maintain that beauty--at least not her skin. Do you suppose it looked that flawless during that infamous first date?
