Cindy Crawford Opens Up About Being Bullied as a Teen

September 15, 2015 2 min read

When you think of one of the world's most well-respected top supermodels, you may assume they've lived a life of pure envy their entire lives; boys and girls, women and men all dropping their jaws in aw that such beauty exists. But for Cindy Crawford, she admits this was not always the case. Crawford is known as one of the best in the industry, grabbing major gigs including Vogue covers, Pepsi commercials, and recently, taking a part in Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood." But things didn't always go this model's way. Crawford, now 49 and a mother of two, has revealed in her new book, "Becoming" that, during her teenage years growing up in a small town in Illinois, she was bullied. "My very first paying job was a newspaper ad for Marshall Field's wearing some kind of Cross Your Heart bra. It appeared in the Chicago Tribune and within hours was plastered all over my high school," Crawford said. "I think some of the kids were trying to embarrass me, but what did I care? I had made $150. Modeling sure beat working in the cornfields." While it may seem obvious that these kids were simply jealous of Crawford, it's not easy being a teen, in the spotlight and being made to feel bad about it. She was also the victim of a vicious prank. "I got a call from a local clothing store interested in hiring me to do some modeling for them," she explained. "I had never dreamed of becoming a model and didn't even know it was a real job," she continued. "On the day of the meeting, I slid into my best Gloria Vanderbilt jeans, a cowl-neck sweater, and my Earth shoes. "I set my hair on hot curlers and drove to DeKalb's version of Main Street. I walked into the store and told the girl at the cash register I was there for the modeling job. She looked at me with a blank stare. I asked to see the manager." Crawford began to feel like something was up, but decided to go through with it anyway. "Several minutes later the manager came out and apologetically told me she didn't know who had called me, but it definitely wasn't her. I felt all the air leave my body. I ran out of the store as fast as I could, only to see two girls from my high school standing on the corner laughing. I felt like I'd been punched in the stomach." While Crawford helps us to understand beauty doesn't cause people to appreciate it, she can recall how well the rest of her career turned out, and how the modeling world continues to respect and adore her for being one of the most influential models to date. What do you think of the bullying Crawford dealt with? Source: Daily Mail
