Celebrities: They’re not just like us! Or rather, their lives often are not, even if they’re generally pretty down-to-earth. Enter Chrissy Teigen, who’s arguably the champion of balancing wow-so-relatable against wow-self-aware among all those in the super-famous bracket. (Kristen Bell is a close competitor there.)

Q: What’s the best celebrity perk? A: Everyone pretends your kids aren’t annoying little turds sometimes.

Q: Does a staff member gently waken you with birdsong and sunlight, or do you use an alarm clock? A: John Legend makes his kids pancakes every morning and is also low-key inconsiderate and/or passive-aggressive with the alarm clock.

Q: How do you find an A-list assistant? A: Agents are rough, man.

Put “I don’t get mail” on the board next to “secret rich person airport.”

She takes her meds. (Seriously, this kind of disclosure is a big deal; cheers to Teigen for being open about mental health.)

And even she doesn’t know everything yet.
