Reality Check: Cindy Crawford Admits "I Have Cellulite"

Reality Check: Cindy Crawford Admits "I Have Cellulite"

Who would have guessed that Cindy Crawford is 43? She still looks amazing to me, and it's nice to hear that even though she was a supermodel, she's still human like the rest of us. In Redbook's September issue Cindy shares,

I have cellulite. I admit it. But sometimes I just say, 'Screw it, I am going to wear a bikini. I think I look good for my age. I am not 25; I am 43. That feels like a big pressure, especially when the National Enquirer is dying to get a picture. I am so aware that I don't want to change the way I live because of that kind of attention. So you say, 'Screw it. I am wearing a bikini, and I am not putting on a cover-up.' You just brace yourself for a bad picture.

Many women like Cindy are blessed with cellulite, but so what? I love that it doesn't get in the way of her being proud to show off her body, and do the things that she enjoys.

Even skinny people get cellulite. It's normal. But I seriously didn't know airbrushing existed when I was younger, so sometimes it is a good thing for celebs to admit they have flaws too I suppose. Sometimes I wish they wouldn't airbrush everything. I know people want to look good but can't they just be natural. I get annoyed with the idea that celebrities are somehow all perfect. They're just people too.

I see many women at the gym wearing shorts during their workouts who have a bit of cellulite on the back area of their legs. I've seen it in 20somethings, 30somethings, and 40somethings. It's much more common and normal than the media would have us believe.

I would love to look like her now much less at 43.

cellulite is perfectly normal...the amount just varies on each person. women shouldn't have to "admit" to it. she looks great either way.

She looks good for MY age, and I'm 28. I can only hope to rock a bod like that when I'm in my 40's.

What I meant ^^^ is that I appreciate honesty.

Along the same lines... in InStyle this month, Jessica Alba said that she doesn't go to the gym.. "my friend and I say we're going to get serious about working out, then we go for brunch instead!" I call BS.

I always thought Cindy Crawford had a nice model's body...not too skinny. I think she looks great, no matter how old she is. Although, I do kind of wonder if she used to have no cellulite and now she does? Like maybe she got it as she got older or something? I don't think cellulite is anything to be ashamed of either; it's just how your body deposits fat.

I'm 21 and I have cellulite. What will I look like when I'm 43? ;-)

I don't think she's necessarily saying that having cellulite is something one has to "admit." I took it as a reference to the fact that so many celebrities insist that they are naturally perfect in every way, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary (ex. Nicole Kidman insisting she's never had botox, every celebrity who claims they've never dieted or been in a gym). I think she was probably being sarcastic.

i read the ' i admit it' comment as ironic, seems to fit with what she goes on to say

She looks great for her age. Actually, she looks great for any age. As a 25 year old, I would gladly look like her!

Advah, you beat me to it — I thought, "Huh? Cellulite is something to admit?" Having cellulite does not make you a failure. I just noticed a new patch last week. I admit it! ;) With that said, CC has always been pretty down-to-earth about the way she looks. So many women spend time hating on their bodies unnecessarily, so it's great to see CC say, This is my cellulite — deal with it.

Did you notice how all those celebs who bravely come forward to say they have cellulite use the term "admit"? :? Most women have cellulite, that's not something shameful and should not be a confession! I feel it kills the point of saying "yes, I have cellulite too so don't feel bad about it" if you make it sound like it's something bad.
