Hailey Baldwin is revealing all in a new interview. The 19-year-old opens up on having insecurities, plastic surgery rumors, Instagram trolls, modelling, and her celebrity crush.
The model is gracing the cover of the U.K.’s ES Magazine, in which she gives an open and honest interview about everything going on in her life. Baldwin also dished about her celebrity crush – and no, it’s not Justin Bieber, reports E! Online.
“I am obsessed with John Mayer,” Baldwin admitted. “I love him. I just think he’s so talented. I have this documentary in my iTunes. I watch it all the time. I know Continuum start to finish, every word.”
Baldwin also revealed the time she met Mayer at The Nice Guy. Unlike the rest of us, Baldwin is able to bump into some of her celebrity crushes.
“I was at dinner with Hailee Steinfeld at The Nice Guy – which is so bouji and sceney, but they have a phenomenal kale salad – and he pulled Hailee aside to say he’d heard her song and thought her lyrics were awesome. I was digging my nails into her arm like, ‘Oh my goodness, John Mayer told you your music is great?’ I was tripping!”
Baldwin has been linked to pop star Justin Bieber and rapper Drake in the past. But she revealed that she’s not dating anyone at the moment. Baldwin wants to remain focused on her modelling career. Baldwin said that she’s not sure if she could have the time for someone else’s feelings at the moment.
In that same interview, Baldwin addressed the plastic surgery rumors that have been haunting her for years. Even her own family believed the tabloid rumors at times, reports BE Beauty.
“Everybody literally thinks I’ve had plastic surgery. My mom’s family call her and they’re like, ‘Did Hailey do her lips? Did she do her nose?’ Do people want me to go to a doctor and have them examine my face so they can tell people I haven’t? My face has just matured. I grew into my looks. I do look different than I did when I was younger, but it’s still the same face.”
Baldwin still has insecurities even though she has never gone under the knife. The model, who has 7.2 million Instagram followers, revealed that she has had her share of mean comments. However, Baldwin understands that it comes with being in the spotlight. The starlet, who is the daughter of Stephen Baldwin, said that she will not raise her future children in the spotlight, reports Entertainment Tonight.
“When I have kids, they will not grow up around all this,” Baldwin remarked. “It’s easy to become spoiled and pretentious and have the wrong attitude. You have money and access to things the average person doesn’t, and you’re constantly surrounded by people trying to kiss you’re a**.”
The reason behind it is probably because her famous father kept her out of the spotlight growing up, reports E! Online. Baldwin was then found by her first modelling agency at 16, after she shot a campaign for an online clothing company. Since then, Baldwin has modeled on catwalks and in ad campaigns for H&M, Hilfiger, Moschino, Ralph Lauren, and Topshop.
Now, she’s the new face of Guess, and she signed on with IMG, who represents her friends Gigi and Bella Hadid. Baldwin is ready to launch her capsule collection for The Daily Edited and her line of beauty products with ModelCo. Baldwin says that she still wants to get on the same level as her famous model friends.
“I don’t want to get my hopes up too high, but [modelling for] Chanel would be amazing, that would be so cool,’ she says. ‘I would work with Versace. I would work with Calvin, if I were so lucky.”
