Cindy Crawford - Cindy Crawford Feels For Today's Models

Cindy Crawford is unhappy that today's models are so much skinnier than her contemporaries.

The 45-year-old star - who was one of the original supermodels alongside Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer, and Christy Turlington - thinks being a model was much easier in her day and admitted she is happy she is not trying to compete with today's stars.

She said: "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 modelling, size 6 (UK size 10) was a normal size and now it's like 2 (UK size 6) or 0 (UK size 4)."

While Cindy admitted there are times when she wishes she looked the same as she did at the height of her modelling career, she says having kids Presley, 11, and Kaia, nine, with her husband Rande Gerber is much more important.

She explained to Parade magazine: "I think what really shows on your face - besides good hair colour - is if you're happy in your life. If you're doing work that you enjoy and that is rewarding, then as my mom always said, 'You'd rather have smile lines than frown lines.'

"I don't look the same as I did 20 years ago, nor should I. Sometimes I get that little pang, like 'Oh, bummer, I wish I did'. But at the same time, I see my children and I see them growing up and I look at my husband and the marriage that we've worked on and have together, and if all that is good and working, it's a lot easier to be kind to your little fine lines or where gravity's gotten the better of you."
