Chrissy Teigen


Chrissy Teigen talked about her approach to fitness to People. "Sometimes I'll go two months without working out and then my trainer will be like, 'What the hell, get your ass back here!' And then I go really hard. It's all about balance. And yes, I definitely stray, I go crazy, but if I did that all the time I would be very unhappy, like physically sad and just feeling lazy and horrible."


John Legend


Teigen is married to singer, John Legend. The couple is known for being very politically active. Legend spoke up about abortion rights in an interview with The Guardian. "I can't watch this shit happen and not say something. We're teetering on the brink of not being a full democracy. We're about to implement The Handmaid's Tale into law."


Kim Kardashian


Teigen and Kim Kardashian are close friends. The reality star revealed on Instagram that she likes to weight train, but also makes sure to not overwhelm her body. "We're back in the gym heavy," Kardashian wrote. "I would say every six months, I take two weeks off from lifting. Sometimes you just need a break to recharge and chill but then I miss it so much and feel so good to be back at it."


Meghan Markle

Teigen revealed in an interview that she has become friends with Meghan Markle. In an interview with Allure, Markle shared some of her favorite skin products. "I love Jan Marini skin-care products. I've been using their serum lately. It's a nice glycolic one that makes your skin really glow-y. And I really love the Tatcha Rice Enzyme Powder. It just sort of foams on your face and gives you a really subtle exfoliation. I also use Revitalash on my eyelashes, and I swear they are as long as they could ever be."


Brooklyn Decker


Brooklyn Decker is close friends with Teigen. She shared some of her wellness tips in an interview with Delish. "I like to be outside, and I go for walks with friends all the time. I'm constantly mobile. I'd love to work out a few days a week, but that doesn't always happen."


Padma Lakshmi


Padma Lakshmi is close friends with Teigen. Lakshmi even invited Teigen to appear on an episode of Top Chef. She shared her skincare products and tips with Byrdie. "There are two sets of products that I really love for skin, and 98% of my products are from these ladies. They're not big brands, but they're both based in New York, and I've been using them for so many years. One is Tracie Martyn, and one is Christine Chin. I really like Christine's toner and daily renewal serum ($138). And her moisturizing mask ($34) is amazing. Especially when you're tired. I do that, like, twice a week when I'm on Top Chef. I keep it in the fridge then just put it on (it's super gooey), lie down for 20 minutes, and listen to a podcast. You don't even have to wash it off actually—just sleep with it."


Katie Maloney


Teigen is a big fan of reality TV shows, and one of her favorites is Vanderpump Rules. She has become friends with cast member Katie Maloney, and the two competed against each other on Celebrity Family Feud. During the pandemic, Maloney shared her skincare secrets with "I haven't been wearing a lot of makeup in quarantine, obviously, so I've just been focusing on keeping my skin super hydrated."


Viola Davis


Teigen has become friends with Viola Davis. In an interview with Allure, Davis talked about gaining self-confidence. "I think that as you get older, you just get more confident in yourself. I don't know one woman who won't look at a picture of themselves when they were younger and go, 'Man, I looked really good. Why didn't I think that at the time?' That really has been a lot of what's happened — I'm looking at the younger Viola, from the older Viola's perspective and wisdom."


Jesse Tyler Ferguson


Jesse Tyler Ferguson is another of Teigen's celebrity friends. He revealed to EatingWell that he has made some changes to his diet. "Recently, my doctor told me my cholesterol is high, so I've been eating less meat. I consider myself a flexitarian. There are weeks I decide I don't want meat and just cut it out of my diet. I'm also a partner with OZO—they make plant-based protein products—which hit all the marks for me and my family: clean ingredients, rich in nutrition and it tastes really good. The OZO burger is really delicious—full of so much flavor—and it's what I've been substituting recently. On top? Hatch green chiles."


Gabrielle Union


Teigen is close friends with Gabrielle Union. The actress is known for her incredible skin, and shared her tips with WhoWhatWear. "As I got older and the hormone situation just kept changing and changing and changing, I started going to a dermatologist and trying to figure out how to combat hormonal breakouts and dark spots and blackheads and cystic acne. As we moved into high-def, I was like, 'Agh! The world is going to see the evolution of this zit. How do we deal?' I've tried so many different things. I've just had to piecemeal my skincare over the years. I use the brand Topicals. I use the Little Herbs Co. skincare line. I use 111Skin as well. I just keep switching it up. I'm blessed that people send their new offerings, so I'm able to try things and see what works and what doesn't."


Melissa Fumero


One of Teigen's friends is actress Melissa Fumero. In an interview with Shape Magazine, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star revealed she works with trainer Richard Toth. "Sometimes we won't have a chance to work out because my schedule gets crazy, but then he's really good about building me back up to the point I was at," she said. "I feel really lucky and grateful that I can even afford to do something like that, but that also I found such a great person to do it with, and he's really become a good friend."
