Cindy Crawford is photographed for Town & Country magazine in Malibu by Victor Demarchelier wearing Louis Vuitton dress (subscriber cover), a Valentino swimsuit and jewels by Van Cleef & Arpels. The 52 year old supermodel opens up to the magazine on being a “Model Matriarch.” She gets candid on how she and husband, Rande Gerber, are raising two young children in the fashion industry, why she isn’t worried anyone will mess with her kids, and the advice she bestows upon them.
On her relationship with daughter, Kaia Gerber: “…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.”
On being a mother of two rising young models: “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.”
On giving her children the confidence to stand up for themselves on modeling jobs: “I’ve done nude photos, lots. 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.’” (source)
Sarah Paulson is currently starring in The Post, and inside the February 2018 issue of Town & Country magazine (on newsstands today!) she opens up on life as a working actress in her 40s, her feelings on the recent rise of her career, her relationship with Holland Taylor, and the fear behind starting a family of her down.
On her cast mates in her latest film, The Post: “These are arguably the most respected filmmakers and actors of their generation. That made it a very extraordinary place to be. It was a pinch me moment.”
On being a working actress in her 40s: “I’ve got a window as a woman of 43. …I’m trying to keep it open with both hands, as wide as possible, for as long as possible.”
On the rise of her career: “Going to the next level means that you’re at the bottom of the next rung. Look, many of them [top-tier actresses] have won Academy Awards. I don’t expect to get offered those roles before them, but I still want them. All it means is that I have to keep working the way I always have, leaving my ego at home and trying to just think about what is true.”
On her relationship with Holland Taylor: “I do not want to be defined by who I share my bed, my home, my soul with. My choices in life have been unconventional, and that’s my business. …Our relationship represents a certain amount of hope and risk. Maybe there’s something brave in it. Maybe it encourages others to make brave choices. What else can I say? We love each other.”
On fear of having children: “I don’t want to be torn. I don’t want to look at my child and say, ‘You’re the most extraordinary thing that ever happened to me, but also the death knell.’ It was hard for my mother to be everywhere, to come to the school play and make a living, I’ve always known what I wanted out of professional life, and I didn’t want to turn around and go, ‘If I had only made the choice to just dedicate this time in my life to me.’ It’s selfish, but I think the word selfish gets a bad rap.”
