Imagine being told you’ve been fired from your job simply because you’re too fat.
“I actually was fired from a job. Forever 21.” Chrissy says in an interview with Du Jour. “I showed up on set, they asked me if they could take a photo, and they shoot that photo off to my agency who then calls me as I’m sitting in the makeup chair and they say “You need to leave right now.” They just say “You are fat and you need to come get your measurements taken.” And I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much.”
But, in true Chrissy fashion, that wasn’t the only interesting thing John Legend’s wife had to say. Keep reading for more excerpts from her interview with Du Jour, photos, and a behind the scenes video.
On her constant tweeting and her attachment to her cell phone:
“If I’m at home, [I check it] maybe every 90 seconds. For a while I was on this roll and I was losing my passport, phone and wallet nonstop. I got a call from the government saying if I lost my passport one more time I was only going to be allowed a one-year passport for the next ten years, which meant I’d have to get it renewed every year. So then I was like, I need to get my shit together.”
On the perfect outfit to spend the rest of her life in:
“Jean shorts, a slouchy shirt and chunky boots. Or a towel. All my friends call me Terry because I’m always in a terrycloth towel. If I’m not out, I’m in a towel. I can’t do robes.”
On the most unpredictable decision she’s ever made:
“Deciding to date a head-to-toe tattooed surfer club owner—right before John. That was in my early 20’s. It wasn’t a bad decision; it was just out of character for me for sure.”
On her favorite John Legend song:
“It’s easier to say what my least favorite John Legend song is, honestly. I remember when he was shooting the video for “Green Light” and I was like, ‘This is horrible. This isn’t gonna go anywhere. I hate this song so much.’ There was nothing about it I liked. And then all of a sudden it’s all over the radio. It was his first big radio hit. And I was like, ‘Listen kid, this song’s going nowhere.’ Clearly I don’t know shit. So now I don’t really speak up as much.”
