“I Don’t Want To Be That Person”: Chrissy Teigen Opens Up About Getting Sober

"It’s not a good look for me, for John, for anybody...”

Chrissy Teigen has made a name for herself as the fun, down-to-earth woman who stays up late watching YouTube videos and eating burritos. But now the mum-of-one has admitted she’s been drinking a bit too much and it’s time for her to get sober.

“I used to think it was kind of nutty to have to go totally sober,” she told Cosmopolitan. “But now I get it. I don’t want to be that person… I have to fix myself. I was, point-blank, just drinking too much.”

She explained that her showbiz lifestyle is what led her to this point. “I got used to being in hair and makeup and having a glass of wine. Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show. And then a bunch at the awards show.

“And then I felt bad for making kind of an ass of myself to people who I really respected. And that feeling, there’s just nothing like that. You feel horrible. It’s not a good look for me, for John, for anybody.”

Chrissy added that she and her husband, John Legend, would like to have more children, and so a healthier lifestyle is the best thing for her right now. Plus, considering she still takes medicine for postpartum depression, “alcohol is like the least thing that helps.”
