Chrissy Teigen Asked People to Share Times They Were Almost Famous and the Results Are Hilarious | 22 Words

Chrissy Teigen is undeniably the sweetheart of the internet. Her Twitter presence makes her beloved by fans all around the world. And even better? Her social media proficiency means fans can always feel connected to the star. Teigen is one of the realest celebs out there - as her latest Twitter thread has proven.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are one of the internet's most beloved celebrity couples.

Musical star Legend is married to model, Chrissy Teigen, and the pair have a huge public presence.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are Hollywood's sweethearts.

The pair got together over a decade ago and have gone from strength to strength ever since.

Their romance began in 2007.

Teigen and Legend first met on the set of Legend’s 2007 music video for “Stereo," where Teigen starred as the singer's love interest. The model, author, and TV personality later revealed that when the shoot was over, the pair went back to Legend’s hotel room, ate at In-N-Out, and hooked up. “We did the music video, we were together for like 12 hours," she told Wendy Williams in 2014. “We spent the entire day together, me in my underwear and him in a full suit, and I went to go say goodbye to him, to his hotel and we didn’t ever say goodbye that night."

But, the pair didn't make it official until months after their music video fling.

With Legend heading out on tour shortly after wrapping up his music video, the timing just wasn't meant to be. “The worst thing you can do is try to lock someone like that down early on, then have them think, ‘There’s so much more out there.’ I played it cool for a long time. Never once did I ask, ‘What are we?’ Marriage was never my goal because I’ve never been very traditional. I was just happy to be with him," Teigen explained to Cosmopolitan in 2014.

While Legend was on the road, the couple talked and texted.

But it wasn't long before Teigen joined her beau on tour. Although the pair had a mini-break up during this time... that lasted a day. “He was feeling really bummed and stressed out [on tour]. He was like, ‘I can’t be in a relationship right now.’ That lasted for one day. Literally, a day. I knew it came from a place other than us not working."

After fiery beginnings, the couple settled down with one of many trips to Italy.

The couple took their first trip to Lake Como, Italy - the future site of their wedding and filming location for the music video of the smash hit “All of Me" - in 2007. Apparently, it was on this getaway that Tiegen knew that she wanted to spend the rest of her life with Legend.

After 4 years of dating, Legend got down on one knee.

...but it didn't run quite as smoothly as he'd have hoped. Legend proposed to Teigen during a Maldives vacation in December 2011, but the pair had a fight on the way to the airport, and to top it off, TSA almost ruined the surprise before they could even board on their flight.

But luckily, everything turned out fine in the end.

“We get to the Maldives and he had planned this beautiful Christmas. He knows how much I love Christmas…And this waiter comes out with a silver dome for dessert…So he opens up the dome and a ton of arugula falls out and then I kind of fish in it…And I see the little box and then you know, your heart stops and you get so excited," Teigen explained. “There was no big grand speech or anything. I think it was just very lovely and sweet."

The pair got hitched on September 14, 2013, in Lake Como.

But they (legally) got married in an NYC courthouse, a day before traveling to Italy. "We actually got married after going to a couple of Fashion Week shows at Vera Wang, ironically who actually did my dress, but we got married at the courthouse right after," Teigen explained to E! News. “We are dumb and didn’t realize that our Italian wedding would not be recognized unless we had a real ceremony in New York City. So Irina Shayk was our witness - the most beautiful woman on earth!"

The couple share 2 children together.

Teigen gave birth to their daughter, Luna Simone Stephens, on April 14, 2016, and son, Miles Theodore Stephens, on May 16, 2018.

The pair have since cemented themselves as a firm Hollywood power couple.

The 2 are a pivotal part of the celebrity scene and their fans lap it up (especially where Teigen's relatable social media posts are concerned... let's be honest, she's comedy gold).

All in all, they are truly relationship goals.

And it's Teigen's ongoing Twitter presence which has truly cemented her as an internet favorite.

Teigen has also proven she really is the best celebrity on Twitter.

She's so worth a follow, if you don't already...

Teigen took to Twitter with one mission in mind.

She wanted people to share the times they were almost famous.

She even shared one of her own.

Now that's pretty cool.

And the responses?

Well, they were pretty amazing.


We're kind of jealous.

We actually remember this!

Glad she's doing ok!

A retro edition.

A link to Chrissy!

What a dream come true.

Another throwback.

What a claim to fame!

This is so cool!

Imagine being a retired zombie!


Who else has the song in their heads?

Not quite so cool.

Kind of insulting, actually.

A real rollercoaster.

Not sure how we feel about this one.

Odd claim to fame.

Wonder what Nick Jonas thinks about this!

Becoming a GIF.

A dream come true.

Very odd indeed.

She nailed the brief though!

On the surface, this sounds fun.

But when you think about it ... maybe not.


These responses are total gold.

Weird and wonderful.

It's amazing what some people have done in their lives!

This seems kind of problematic.


Remember these guys?

So impressive!

A great claim to fame.

And an even greater story.

Pretty cool.

But also kind of humiliating?

We're jealous!

Of the dog and of the Martha Stewart encounter.

The real question?

Why did Ryan Gosling need a hand double?

Nice shot!

We're now curious whether we might be too?

Extra work.

This is surprisingly glamorous!

And finally.
