Cindy Crawford says she’s lucky she doesn’t have a #MeToo story to share, but admits she regrets certain nude shoots that she felt coerced into doing.
The 52-year-old supermodel is now mentor, manager and mother to her two model children Presley and Kaia – and in the wake of the #MeToo movement, she wants to “empower” them to be able to say no if they feel uncomfortable at work.

“I’ve done nude photos, lots,” Crawford told Town & Country. “The only ones I regretted were the ones that I kind of got talked into.
“I don’t want my children to ever look back and think, ‘Gosh, I wish I hadn’t done that.’ I want to empower them to just say, ‘I’m outta here.'”
Reflecting on the women and men speaking up about sexual harassment and abuse in Hollywood and beyond, she continued: “I’m really lucky, because I don’t have a #MeToo story.
“As far as being a mother of two young people going into fashion, of course I worry. But let’s be honest. My kids are blessed in that business because they aren’t coming in as unknowns. People will know I will come after them if they mess with my kids.”
Presley, 18, and Kaia, 16, have dominated the catwalks during recent fashion weeks, and recently landed a Calvin Klein campaign together. Kaia made her couture show debut at Chanel earlier this year, and stars in the French fashion house’s latest handbag campaign.
On her relationship with with her in-demand teenage model daughter Kaia, Crawford added: “We talk every day, at least, and text.
“If she doesn’t text me back within 15 minutes, I do one in all caps and a lot of exclamation points. Just respond, okay? Or else I’m going to track you through your Uber account.”
