(FeaturedNews.com) – Supermodel Cindy Crawford recalled during the Apple TV Show “The Supermodels,” her interview with Oprah Winfrey in 1986. At the time, Crawford and her agent John Casablancas had appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” where the model recalled she was asked to stand up while Winfrey made comments about her body.
Winfrey proceeded to ask Casablancas whether the then-20-year-old model always had this figure and then told Crawford to stand up while saying that this was what she called “a body.” Casablancas, who founded Elite Model Management, has been credited with discovering the supermodel. Oprah proceeded to inquire whether Crawford had to go through a training period or not.
In reference to that interview, Crawford stated that she remembered being presented as “chattel” or like a child who should be “seen and not heard.” She added that while at the time she did not recognize it, looking back on the interview, she could see that when she was asked to stand up by Oprah she was essentially being asked to show what made her worthy of appearing in the TV show.
The Apple TV docuseries is focused on the lives of many of the 90s most successful supermodels including Crawford, Naomi Cambell, Christy Turlington, and Linda Evangelista.
Crawford noted that she had not grown up feeling special about her looks and that in her small town, the idea of beauty was the petite cheerleader girl. She added that she had never even considered modeling and that her parents had been hesitant about her entering the industry.
