Chrissy Teigen is recounting the mortifying moment she met Michael Keaton. Speaking during an appearance on Tuesday's "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," the model explained that she bumped into the actor after the Golden Globes but had no idea who he was. What happened next left her utterly "embarrassed," People reported.
"I was drinking a lot and I saw somebody at the entrance holding a glass of champagne, so I just went up and I took it and I said 'thank you,'" she recalled. Her husband, John Legend, had to point out that it was Keaton and not a server.
"It was not someone serving champagne?" Fallon asked.
"No, it was not," Teigen answered. "God, I'm so embarrassed by it still, I could die ... I took it, I drank it, and I left."
Teigen has been open about her struggles with alcohol and recently opened up about how her pregnancy loss led her to the path of sobriety.
"It was a really transformative thing for me and in a way it really saved me, because I don't think that I would've discovered therapy and then sobriety and this path of feeling good about myself and feeling like a new person," Teigen told Ellen DeGeneres of her miscarriage, via People.
In 2017, Teigen admitted to Cosmopolitan that there was a history of alcohol abuse in her family and said she was cutting back on alcohol because she is the type of person who "can't just have one drink." At one point, she was "drinking too much" and needed to re-evaluate her habits.
"I got used to being in hair and makeup and having a glass of wine. Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show," Teigen told the outlet. "And then a bunch at the awards show. And then I felt bad for making kind of an a-- of myself to people that I really respected. And that feeling, there's just nothing like that. You feel horrible. It's not a good look for me, for John, for anybody."
