Chrissy Teigen: “Everyone has a butt now, curves and a little waist, and that’s not me…”

On feeling jealous and inadequate while seeing perfect bodies on Instagram:

My old ass will go on social media, and I will look at the Photoshopping, Facetuning, and the apps — and everything that goes into creating what is now a hit Instagram photo — and I feel insanely inadequate. You know those times when you’re online and you say to yourself, “I wish I had her body,” or “If I just lost five pounds, I could look like that”? I’m in a weird phase where I’m jealous of those bodies, but I also really want to be cool with my own body. I really want to be that person for you all, that says, “You don’t need that f—— s—.” 

There have been times I’ve cried to [husband] John [Legend], where I felt like I would just never have ‘that’ body. I’ve definitely been really upset with…you know, everyone has a butt now, everyone has curves, and a little waist, and that’s not me…

  1. Unfortunately I understand her, even with all this ‘everybody is beautiful’ talk lately, I’ve never felt uglier and more inadequate to society’s stadards of beauty, i.e. ass, waist, obsession with being ‘curvy’…but I find it strange that there seems to be no outrage (or at least, I haven’t witnessed it) like there was in the 90’s, early ’00 when everybody was against the current beauty standard (skinny and flat), such a hypocrisy.

    • Probably because being underweight is much more apparent than struggling with orthorexia or body image distortion in general, the curvy ideal seems healthy on the surface (and it is, if you don’t go to extreme measures to attain it, no BBL, fitness obsession, no flat tummy teas etc.) The worst part of this trend is instagram feeds, loads and loads of unrealistic, surgically enhanced or photo shopped pictures of “normal” people. Also everyone “can be” skinny af but it’s more complicated to get that whr, ~ss and b~bs, if you don’t have those naturally.

      Media and people are embracing this trend because it’s different from a pretty long reign of skinny being the absolute best.

      • Key word: ‘seems’. Also, I wouldn’t call some decades of skinny trend over a couple millennia of ‘curvy’ being the dominant ‘long reign’ xD

        • Exactly why I said “seems”, because I meant it…? If we’re talking about today’s woman I think it’s pointless to point out what ideals were held for example in Italian Renaissance or Victorian England since none of us lovely girls, our mothers or grandmothers experienced that. If we look at most recent trends from 1990’s, it’s been skinny/model obsessed. 1980’s most normal girls didn’t probably feel the need to look exactly like an aerobics instructor. 70’s, 60’s all skinny. 1930-1950 petite curvy, then again in the 1920’s gamines.

  2. Her looks are her job, she’s made a lot of money on them.

    Either she accept she doesn’t fit the current industry trends, either she buys herself the body everyone else bought.

    Crying over it to her hubby seems immature and unprofessional

    • Yeah, if you don’t like being judged on your looks, maybe don’t partake in a shallow industry that reinforces beauty as a virtue instead of chance

    • How is crying with your husband unprofessional? It’s her husband for f*cks sake… If she cried about it at a casting or something, maybe that would be unprofessional.

  3. She should get those bunions fixed, they look very uncomfortable.
    I get what she’s saying though. I used to follow lots of “fitness” girls on Instagram (more like borderline soft core p0rn if we’re being honest), and the fake image they portray while pretending to be oh so real can be very toxic and depressing to someone that doesn’t have a sugar daddy to pay for numerous procedures / allows them to work out and relax all week. Chrissy is one of the few humans I still follow, otherwise it’s all puppies and cute animals.

  4. I think at some point in your life, you just have to learn to accept your body and live your life instead of wishing for a body that is not yours. When I was younger, I was really uncomfortable with my small chest but as I grew into my twenties, I became more comfortable with my body overall, sure there are things I’d like to change about myself, but I don’t obsess over them like I used to, life’s too short to think so negatively about yourself all the time.

  5. On a happier note, what a pretty girl! I don’t think she lacks curves at all, she has lovely breasts. Ah, sorry I just really like her!

  6. Aww. I can relate.

    Some people, even the plus size models, make it out to be like this “new” curvy trend is ground breaking and empowering, when in reality it also excludes those women that don’t fit in that trend. It’s the same old tale.

    I like her honesty and that she sticks to her apple body shape (considering she doesn’t lack the money to have surgery). I appreciate the representation.

  7. I think her body is phenomenal. She’s petite but still has a nice shape. Maybe I just like her because we both store weight in our upper bodies, lol.

  8. I think she is cute most of the time unless it’s a really bad outfit, and I think her body is perfectly beautiful. While I find her slightly annoying from the little I’ve heard of her, she is at least being real. I also don’t naturally have the best whr, I’m an hourglass and even an apple when I’m not at my best. I feel sad I’m not a pear shape, I’ll never have that unless I had surgery. My boobs won’t allow me to be a pear shape but most men seem to be @ss men nowadays. Which my @ss is existent and still nice but again I’m not a pear shape. I’ve also had the worst body confidence lately because there are some things I can’t change.
    On a positive note, a healthy fit body looks good no matter your shape.

  9. Here’s one idea: STOP LOOKING AT INSTAGRAM and get a real life, get real problems!! you have a daughter and a husband and you’re crying because you’re not the prettiest girl on the internet?!!! do you want more “likes”?!! It’s disturbing that she thinks that’s normal and is even proud to admit it! and more disturbing that people here also think it’s normal; very scary how social media affecting our mental health 🙁

  10. also how ridiculous is she to refer to herself as “old ass”; she’s not old and she knows it, but that’s her way of also complaining that she also not the youngest girl on the internet

  11. Cry me a river, lovie. find this kind of comment, coming from an extremely attractive woman, just shallow and needlessly attention seeking.

    • I think she’s not attention-seeky, just really insecure. I kind of feel sorry for her tbh. Like another commenter said, she has a husband and kid/s, if I had that I’d try to limit myself with the “woe is me I ain’t that hot” attitude. Priorities.
