During a candid interview with Cosmopolitan in 2017, Teigen confessed that she was “point blank, just drinking too much,”
“I got used to being in hair and makeup and having a glass of wine. Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show. And then a bunch at the awards show. And then I felt bad for making kind of an ass of myself to people that I really respected,” she said.
“And that feeling, there’s just nothing like that. You feel horrible. It’s not a good look for me, for John, for anybody.”
Talking on the TODAY show about the bullying incidents, which the 35-year-old has profusely apologised for on social media and in an open letter on Medium, Teigen insisted that she is “glad it happened” because it “made her a stronger person.”
