00:03
I kind of thought it would be funny
00:05
if my mole wrote its own autobiography.
00:07
(laughs)
00:08
I went to a concert recently, and we were late getting in,
00:11
and we were trying to go in the back way
00:15
and the security people were like,
00:18
You can't come in here.
00:19
And the driver was like, No, I have Cindy Crawford.
00:20
Can we please come in?
00:21
And he's like, Let me see the mole.
00:23
So, I had to slowly unroll the window
00:26
and be like, It's me.
00:28
It's like my ID now.
00:30
There were times in the beginning where
00:32
you can find pictures where they've retouched my mole out.
00:35
And it's weird because they're not,
00:37
I don't think they're as strong
00:38
and they don't look like me.
00:40
My face is very asymmetrical, and somehow
00:42
the mole balances it out.
00:44
They would sometimes try to cover it with makeup,
00:46
which was a total disaster.
00:48
Eventually, I did an American Vogue cover
00:51
with the mole stayed.
00:53
After that, it was never, just never an issue again.
00:56
When Playboy came, it was very risky
00:58
because, kind of models of my stature
01:01
at that point weren't doing Playboy.
01:03
It was like, Wait, why would you do that?
01:05
I must admit that I was a little nervous
01:08
to tell my dad that I was doing Playboy.
01:10
There were topless pictures of me
01:12
and I'm sure he wasn't relishing
01:15
the fact that guys at work saw that.
01:18
(laughter)
01:19
Just like my kids are very embarrassed by it now.
01:22
We try to teach our kids to err on the side
01:27
of being more modest in posting,
01:30
especially with a 14-year old daughter.
01:31
My husband and my son are very protective,
01:33
of course, as they should be.
01:34
And my son will be like,
01:36
Well, you can't ask Mom, she did Playboy.
01:38
It's an instant dismissal like I don't
01:42
have authority in that world because I did Playboy.
01:46
Twice.
01:47
I actually did have a big crush on Richard Gere.
01:51
And I ended up meeting him and marrying him.
01:54
So that kind of worked out.
01:56
Yeah, now I'm a married lady with,
01:58
I have a crush on my husband, which is nice.
02:00
What movie makes me cry?
02:02
I just watched a movie this weekend that made me cry.
02:05
And it's called Loving.
02:07
It's about an interracial couple
02:09
in, I think, Virginia, in the 50s.
02:12
And they get married and they know, basically,
02:15
that it's against the law and they're gonna get arrested.
02:17
And you watch this movie, and then you cut to here in 2016.
02:22
How could anyone ever think that that was wrong?
02:24
There's people that think gay marriage is wrong.
02:26
And 30 years from now, we're gonna think,
02:27
How could anyone ever think that was wrong?
02:30
I wouldn't even call it a love scene,
02:31
I'd call it a sex scene.
02:32
Let's just call a spade a spade.
02:34
In a moving train with Billy Baldwin,
02:38
William Baldwin, for Fair Game, yes.
02:42
My one and, well really, my one and only movie.
02:44
I don't smoke and I wanted to smoke a cigarette afterwords.
02:47
And so did the whole crew.
02:49
I think that, for me, royalty's more
02:51
about, like a Jane Fonda, people
02:53
that have stood the test of time.
02:56
They've put the hour, like a Clint Eastwood.
02:59
It's not just a one-hit wonder, in that they're there.
03:02
It's like they're there, they're an institution.
03:06
Do you know though, by the way, that I am,
03:08
I found out I did that ancestor show,
03:09
and Charlemagne is my 39 times great grandfather.
03:13
So yes, I was like, Okay, you can just call
03:15
me Empress now, to my children, it's fine.
03:18
(laughter)
