I didn't really like the name Kendall
00:05
until I turned like 16 and then I realized
00:09
it was very unique and I liked how unique it was.
00:12
I had a ton of nicknames growing up.
00:14
My nicknames were Kenny, Killa, Kenya, Ken, Kendo, yeah.
00:21
I was like 10 when I started thinking models
00:24
were the coolest people in the world.
00:26
My favorite model when I was 10 was Giselle.
00:29
I didn't really know what I was talking about
00:30
and I think it's the only name I knew.
00:32
I was always interested, I would definitely
00:34
like practice a walk that was very bad.
00:36
I would like dress up.
00:37
I was a tomboy for a couple years,
00:39
so those years I think I was more into sports
00:42
and being a tomboy and then once I came out of that,
00:44
I was like secretly doing walks in my room and stuff.
00:48
My first big break was the Marc Jacobs show.
00:51
I didn't think anyone would like me.
00:52
I went back like, I think I wasn't nervous
00:54
because I was wearing flats.
00:56
I was like, I can't fall, there's no way I could fall.
00:58
And then my tits were out, I don't know why
01:00
I wasn't nervous about that.
01:01
I was really excited about my tits being out actually.
01:03
I'm weird, I love my tits being out.
01:05
It's like one of my things, I guess.
01:08
I'm young.
01:09
When I'm older I want to be able to look at it and be like,
01:11
I looked good.
01:12
I think I was raised to be a workaholic.
01:15
10 months out of the year I'm working almost every day.
01:17
I've been working since I was 10 years old, so.
01:20
I was on a reality TV show, which you can consider a job,
01:22
but it's working with my family every single day,
01:24
so I'm very lucky to call it a job.
01:26
My little sister and I are baby bosses.
01:29
We are like basically on our way to rule the world.
01:32
(laughs)
01:34
So you can expect that.
01:35
Like my first real kiss?
01:37
You're gonna think this sounds really crazy,
01:39
but it's not as crazy as it sounds.
01:40
It was in a shower, we were fully clothed
01:42
and the shower wasn't on, it wasn't like that.
01:44
We were playing truth or dare, me and three of my friends,
01:47
and my little sister was trying to spy on us.
01:50
Like my room didn't have a lock on it,
01:51
but the bathroom door did, so we all shoved in the bathroom
01:54
until when we got dared to kiss someone,
01:57
we would have to go in the shower
01:58
and close the curtain so no one would see
02:00
and we'd kiss and come out.
02:01
So it was in a shower, but it wasn't
02:02
as naughty as it sounds.
02:04
Angelina Jolie is definitely my girl crush.
02:07
I love Angelina Jolie in Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
02:10
Who else did I have a crush on?
02:12
Who was the pop, oh Justin Bieber was like the pop star
02:14
of my time.
02:15
I feel like I must have had like a 12 year old crush on him.
02:18
I didn't have famous people on my wall.
02:20
I was obsessed with animals, I still am.
02:21
Like, I'm a nerd.
02:22
I'm not like cool like that.
02:24
I barely know half the celebrities' names now.
02:27
In a past life I think I was an animal.
02:29
I was either a horse or a dog.
02:30
Either a Great Dane or a Lab
02:32
because Great Danes have long legs and they're big
02:35
and I'm big and I have long legs and they're awkward.
02:37
I had a Great Dane puppy and she was
02:38
the most awkward thing ever and she would just
02:41
like fall all the time and it reminded me of me.
02:43
I can do this with my thumb.
02:46
That's not that crazy.
02:47
And then I can make bird noises.
02:49
(bird whistles)
02:53
Yeah, I was out in the wild spending like a week with birds.
02:56
[Woman] Really?
02:57
No.
02:58
My dad was trying to teach me how to whistle once
03:01
when we were driving to school and I couldn't do it
03:03
and that's what happened.
03:05
(bird whistles)
03:06
I don't think this is a superstition,
03:08
but I say a little prayer before I walk,
03:10
before I take off in a plane, and every night.
03:15
Like I was raised to kind of do that.
03:17
Makes me feel better.
03:19
So I guess that's a superstition-ish.
