Teigen gets real about dealing with "stupid and mean" celebrities, her husband and the perks of fame.
Chrissy Teigen went on a Twitter spree on Sunday night, after a seemingly mundane question about having a junk drawer turned into a lengthy Q&A with her fans about the realities of being a celebrity.
Over the course of four hours -- with a break or two in there somewhere -- the "Lip Sync Battle" star responded to a ton of her followers, as they asked about everything from the paparazzi to her staff and famous friends.
It all began when someone on Twitter tagged Chrissy in a post asking, "Do celebrities have junk drawers where they throw random cords and pens? I feel like @chrissyteigen would but like @KimKardashian absolutely would not." Teigen proved the user right by sharing a photo of her junk drawer and adding, "It's celebrity question asking time! Ask me, your favorite A list celebrity anything you would like to know about being a huge A list celebrity."
The answers did not disappoint.
Chrissy on Other Celebrities
Teigen revealed some intel about what it's like to communicate with other famous people, as one herself.
During the Q&A, she said her interactions have run the gamut from incredibly pleasant to "shitty" and "stupid and mean" -- adding that one guest on "Lip Sync Battle" really "rubbed me in an extremely wrong way."
It's why I hate interviews. There are so many tones to everything, and you just pray it translates well. I'm also very long winded and talk a lot. It is the longest waiting game and I hate it. https://t.co/AwcCv8Lh8H
unbelievably boring and you are pulled in 100 different directions and yelled at to sit down. the bar is never close to you and everyone is so mean to seat fillers, I dunno why anyone wants to do it https://t.co/U7tuzWTA0L
In a surprise to absolutely nobody, Teigen also explained that being famous comes with some killer advantages.
Responding to a number of questions about the "perks" of being a celebrity, she revealed how her status comes with better airport and airplane interactions, restaurant reservations and more free stuff than she can keep up with.
As for the plus she feels more guilty about, she answered "money."
there is a terminal a mile from the airport that you pay membership for. they do the same security privately and take you to the plane in a car. I know. I know. https://t.co/BtFaTBaMKh
I make reservations and don't give them the option to say no. "Hi it's Chrissy Teigen and id like to make a reservation for 2 for John legend, do you have any availability?" if you just say "hi can I make a reservation for 2?" they say no. gotta say it all at once https://t.co/31GsnRw3KJ
Lastly, Teigen was extremely honest about the luxury of hiring help.
She explained that she considers her team -- which includes managers, agents, hair and makeup people -- people she's very close with. She added that they family has four, rotating nannies, a house manager and an assistant ... who does much of her holiday shopping.
A lot of my best friends are people I met on the creative side. My managers and agents and hair and makeup people, I'm very close with. But I also have best friends in New York who make fun of me all the time and it's great. https://t.co/bz4Drcf4bA
