This Is Why Chrissy Teigen Shared That Viral Stretch Mark Photo
The internet exploded when Chrissy Teigen 'grammed a pic of her stretch marks. Here's why she did it.
Chrissy Teigen became our new body confidence champ at the start of the month when she shared a now famous pic of bruises and stretch marks on the inside of her thighs. Now Chrissy has opened up and explained why she shared the deadly snap, which helped thousands of women re-evaulate their own perceived ‘flaws’.
“I actually am working on a cookbook and I was bumping around in the kitchen and the door handle would just nick me every single time,” Chrissy explained in an interview with Meredith Vieira. “And I was actually just taking a picture of the bruises and then I saw the stretch marks in there.”
“I have those apps, the Facetune and Photoshopping ones, and I just didn’t feel like doing it any more — and I’m never doing it again, because I think we forget what normal people look like now.”
Thanks for keeping it real, Chrissy.
