Chrissy Teigen may have a seriously impressive modeling career, but that's not guilting her into taking her high-profile gig too seriously.
The charismatic model dished of her chosen profession on Late Night , telling host Seth Meyers: "It's fun, but I don't take it very seriously."
"I am paid a good amount of money to not blink for 12 hours," Teigen joked.
And the refreshingly candid 28-year-old didn't stop there. She also addressed her outspoken nature on social media, even admitting that it has gotten her into trouble in the past.
"My agency definitely is not so keen on it all the time," Teigen dished on the show. "Well, just being a model you're not supposed to speak ever, really."
Another modeling taboo the Sports Illustrated cover girl is breaking? Eating. She's got an Instagram filled with snapshots of drool-worthy homemade meals, and now she's set to judge the new cooking competition show Snack-Off on MTV.
"Basically [it's] Top Chef but for a little dirtier cuisine—hot pockets, hot dogs, oatmeal pies."
