  • Quotes

    • Cindy: For every thing you don't like about yourself, come up with something you do like....Once you start thinking in positive terms, slowly you'll begin to appreciate other things.

    • Cindy: In my work, I've realized that "Cindy Crawford" is a product. I decide how to use that image. It's a business.

    • Cindy: I'm just so happy, because I can come home from a day on set and start posting on my journal, or if I have any energy left, I can turn my camera on and start having a live chat with people who are members on my site. Sometimes when I'm bored, I'll take a shower, put on my makeup and something really sexy, turn my camera on, and just give the people logged in a show they'll never forget. This is what I always wanted.

    • Cindy: Sometimes my hair is a mess, and I can't find the right outfit and I feel like I weigh 300 pounds.

    • Cindy: I have a simple, healthy life, which works miracles. I drink a lot of water, watch what I eat, and exercise. But I owe the quality of my skin to a cosmetic surgeon.

    • Cindy: Past a certain age, creams work on the texture of your skin, but in order to restore elasticity all I can really count on is vitamin injections, Botox and collagen.

    • Cindy: Certainly Vogue was the total seal of approval, but Cosmo was up there. You had those and your cosmetics contract, and you were all set.

    • Cindy: The face you have at age 25 is the face God gave you, but the face you have after 50 is the face you earned.

    • Cindy: Our sex life has been ruined since the arrival of our first baby. We can't be so spontaneous because we don't want the nanny to hear us. We can't scream and yell like we used to.

    • Cindy: The thing I like about my body is that it's strong. I can move furniture around my apartment. I can ride my horse, I can play basketball. It's a well functioning machine.

    • Cindy: My breasts are beautiful, and I gotta tell you, they've gotten a lot of attention for what is relatively short screen time.

    • Cindy: You start out happy that you have no hips or boobs. All of a sudden you get them, and it feels sloppy. Then just when you start liking them, they start drooping.

    • Cindy: It's a huge change for your body. You don't even want to look in the mirror after you've had a baby, because your stomach is just hanging there like a Shar-Pei.

    • Cindy: I don't think makeup is rocket science or a cure for cancer.

    • Cindy: They were doing a full back shot of me in a swimsuit and I thought, 'Oh my God, I have to be so brave.' See, every woman hates herself from behind.
