In a recent interview with Bustle she opened up about why it bothers her to be purely labeled as a model. "I don’t know why it does, because there’s nothing wrong with it. It’s so weird. I just feel like, it’s the last thing I do or I don’t really feel like I do it at all anymore," she said.
Teigen continued to explain that, "I’ve never been offended by it. If anything, I was just always weirded out to say it. I remember being on an airplane and this man next to me was like, 'what do you do for a living?' And I was like, 'uhhhh,' and I just made something up because I’ve never been able to physically say it, even when I was one, so I don’t know. There’s something about it that never vibed well with me because I never felt like I was one. I was always doing something else that I thought was equally cool," she said.
Embracing the fact that she is a multi-faceted celebrity, Teigen explained how perhaps not having a specific job title can be empowering. "I think we’re in this time now where people really have so many different titles and you don’t have to be held down to one thing," she said.
