Christine Diane Teigen

Chrissy Teigen quotes: on boobs, bikinis, social media etiquette, chaos, food, motherhood, and more.

“We are human.  Some days are harder than others.  One day something will upset me more than it would have the day before.”

“My new motto these days is to go with the flow: it actually teaches you to be a better person and not be so neurotic about time and schedules.  Whatever is going to work to make a great day, go with it.  I’m very much a person who likes to be present.”

“I’ve learned to listen to what the other person is upset about and try to make sure that I’m doing everything to not let that same, dumb fight happen again.”

“I think confidence comes from just getting older, honestly.  I used to be very much a ‘yes’ person; always wanting to make other people happy and not necessarily putting my own needs and desires first.  But I think it just came from age.  I’ve been through different stages in my life – different types of work, different agencies, had different teams – and I think as you just get older, you gain confidence and realize that there are certain things that are important to you, and you’re not afraid to speak up on them anymore.”

“And now it’s more about family life and doing things that I think are going to be great and that people are going to love.  I have just as many insecurities as anybody else, if not more.  I think we all have ups and downs.  I really wouldn’t even describe myself as a super-confident person.”

“Surround yourself with good people.  I think there’s so much more to be said about the quality of friendships you have around you than the quantity of.”

“It’s really about being around the right people and wanting those people to challenge you; not having people pleasers and ‘yes’ people around you.  But having people – honest, good people – who you respect for what they do and the way they live their lives.”

“No election is ever just about one issue, but I care a lot about women’s rights and making sure parents have what they need to raise healthy kids.  I always have cared, but having just had a child, I know how serious it is to be a mother.  It’s an incredibly huge challenge.  You need support.  You need resources.”

“Some parents struggle to put food on the table.  And plenty of women aren’t getting the pay they deserve.  While I don’t expect the government to solve all these problems, I do want leaders who care about these things and do what they can to help.”

“A lot of people are always striving for bigger and better.  People are always wondering if the grass is greener and then they’ll​ start hearing things or meeting other people.”

“I’ve always enjoyed things a little more chaotic than most people would prefer.  I feel that I run well in chaos.  Embrace the chaos!”

“I think anyone who follows me knows how I react.  It’s not always poetic and perfect but neither am I.”

“My tolerance for tears is very little when you’re beautiful and crying over nothing.”

“I always wanted to be a teacher or wanted to do something with food.  But modeling, I just never thought I could do it myself, really, ever.  I still have trouble calling myself a model.  I just never thought I was tall enough or skinny enough.”

“Since I was 20 years old, I had this weight in my mind that I am, or that I’m supposed to be.  I’ve been so used to that number for 10 years now.  And then I started realizing it was a swimsuit-model weight.  There’s a very big difference between wanting to be that kind of fit and wanting to be happy-fit.”

“Men are very tough, very critical of me.  I think they expect you to basically just be a picture.  They don’t want to hear you speak.  Women, I love.  It’s amazing to me, because I am a swimsuit model; I’m half-naked.  I just love the fact that women love me, and it makes me love them so much back.”

“Some people, I think, think that because I don’t take it as seriously as a lot of the girls do, that I frown upon modeling or think it’s stupid.  I don’t at all.  This is my life.  I would be nothing without this.  But I really don’t take it seriously.”

“I am paid a good amount of money to not blink for 12 hours.  It’s fun, but I don’t take it very seriously.”

“I wasn’t a model that loved food.  I was someone that loved food that started modeling.”

“Being a swimsuit model that talks so much on Twitter… everyone thinks that I could definitely pull back.  You kind of open yourself up to all the criticism.  That’s definitely a big downside to this whole world.  How can you complain about people critiquing your body when you’re literally like, ‘Look at my body!'”

“I know there is a certain amount of negativity I have to deal with.”

“I regret things all the time.  I’ve never regretted not saying something.  I’ve only regretted saying something.”

“Listen, my words have never been described as the most eloquent, but I stick by the passion behind them.  If I’m passionate about something, I’ll say it and deal with the consequences later.”

“I think it’s obvious why someone wouldn’t personally want to see these words on their feed, but I’m also concerned about the overall negative environment created when the comment section becomes a battleground for people to bully each other.  I signed up for this.”

“I wanted to write like I spoke, even if it defied grammar.”

“My day job may be exhausting, but cooking is my peace.  My dream is to have a big family with lots of grandkids.  And we’ll get together every Sunday for a hearty dinner at our house, and we’ll all live in flavorful bliss, happily ever after.”

“I have a great life.  I have all the help I could need.”

“I have a best-selling book, great boobs, a family I love, am literally eating pasta on a lake in Italy and I married rich.”

“Life goes on.”
