Cindy Crawford on shooting a Propel Zero commercial with her kids: "Originally, I didn't want to use my kids in the commercial because I don't ever want to make them feel like they have to work because they might be in a bad mood that day or they might want to have a play date. I don't ever want to say, 'Well sorry, you're booked.' But the night before the commercial, they heard my husband and I talking and they heard that we were having 'fake' kids. They were like, 'You can't have fake kids! You have to have us!' So at the last minute, they ended up doing it. They got to see that my job, even though it's fun and I like it, is also work. Plus, it's fun for them to see themselves on TV!" As for how the modeling industry has changed since her heyday: "I do feel like an outsider now, but I just saw the CoverGirl commercial with Taylor Swift and I thought, 'Wow, it is so hard for models to get a job these days.' You have to sing and act, too. There doesn't seem to be as much work specifically just for models. And I also think when I was modeling, size 6 was a normal size and now it's like 2 or 0." [Parade]
