Victoria's Secret model Chrissy Teigen tells StyleList that "it’s not that difficult to be a swimsuit model," which is one of the reasons why she can't even swim. "I’m not modeling scuba gear or anything so I don’t have to get in the water," she explains. Butt modeling, on the other hand, takes some doing: "I was a backside model for Victoria’s Secret's website and it ended up being the most painful thing I have done ... I had to pop my butt out the entire time and I remember that my back was in the most pain of my entire life." [StyleList]
