I did not want to be a model: Kaia Gerber gave a frank interview about her career and famous mother

Daughter of Cindy Crawford is now one of the most sought after and popular models in the world.

Kaia Gerber has become one of the main characters in the new issue of i-D magazine. The 18-year-old daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford starred for the cover and gave a candid interview.

“I knew what my mother was doing, but I really didn’t understand that it was work. When your parents are doctors or lawyers, it’s completely different. I didn’t feel that this Cindy Crawford is my mother. She was just a mom who was a model. And only when I started working in the fashion industry, I began to realize her contribution and influence, "says Kaia.

The girl admits that she liked to study at school, but did not like to do homework. But she mentions that the parents were engaged in self-education of her and her brother. Now she is no longer in school and did not continue her education, but is very passionate about reading. One of the last books she read is Haruki Murakami's Norwegian Wood. The girl admits that she never wanted to be a model. And when she was little, she never thought that she looked like her famous mother, supermodel Cindy Crawford and could do the same thing that she did.

"My mother never forced me. When I started growing up, people began to say that I should become a model, but I was skeptical about this. It is difficult to become an adult woman, to go through all these changes in adolescence, in front of everyone. You need a lot of confidence, "admitted Kaia. Logically, an entire army of critics has appeared, which discusses the young model in social networks. The girl notes that this is "really hurts" and recently she was so hurt and upset that she cried in the car.

But, despite all the inconveniences associated with popularity, Kaia wants to try herself in acting. True, she does not know when to decide on this.

Now, the girl says, maybe due to age, and maybe work, she has become much closer with her mother. Together they go to the cinema and do yoga, perhaps, Kaia notes, they can even be called best friends.

As Focus previously wrote:

Kaia Gerber first appeared in a music video. The girl’s debut work was a clip for the song of the vocalist of the group Public Access T.V. John Iserly "Burnout".

Moschino designer Jeremy Scott transferred viewers and models to the art gallery and was inspired by Pablo Picasso. On the catwalk, Scott “revived” some of the famous canvases of the Spanish artist: Harlequin performed by Bella Hadid appeared before the audience, and a girl with a guitar performed by Kaya Gerber.
