It turns out that even one of the most famous supermodels in the world doesn’t feel that she can match up to today’s insane beauty standards. Cindy Crawford got very honest in an interview about the pressure not to age and the expectation to be stick thin.
“There is a lot of pressure on women to, well, not age,” Crawford said in an interview with Refinery29. “I am probably even more sensitive to it – but you can’t keep chasing this impossible thing… as much as I try to take care of myself, I still don’t look like my daughter when I wake up in the morning – and I don’t want to feel bad about that.”
Crawford went on to explain that she feels the industry is far worse on women than it was when she started out.
“I have a daughter who is entering this world, and the expectation is for them to be even thinner now,” she continued. “I was always a size 6; I was never super skinny and I never felt bad about it… You could have boobs, you could have hips, you could have a little extra flesh. Now, the models are expected to be so much thinner.”
