Teigen spoke to Vanity Fair in an October about why some people are annoyed about her relationship with Legend. She said she doesn't focus on it, but she sympathizes. “There are some famous couples I look at and I’m like, ‘Ugh, we get it. Stop trying so hard, you’re so lame,’" she said. "I think people definitely think that about us but…that’s because I think of everything.”

Teigen and Legend also discussed how their relationship started. “He was kind of known at the time for either being in the closet or a modelizer,” Teigen said of when they started seeing each other. He was 27, and she was 21. “I used to go on the websites and it was always either how I was his beard, or how he paid his past serious girlfriends, or how he was with some new model. Oh my god, I would read everything.” Legend added, “It got serious pretty quickly. She just entertained the hell out of me, texting me. What people respond to in her tweets today was the same energy in those texts. I didn’t know that I wanted someone funny until I was actually with someone funny.”
