Rebecca Romijn aka the former Mrs. John Stamos talked major shit about “social media stars” who think they’re supermodels. As a refresher, Rebecca played Mystique in X-Men before Jennifer Lawrence took over and is married to the guy from Kangaroo Jack, but back in the 1990s she was a pretty legit model.
Well in an interview this week Rebecca got super passive-aggressive, like when another girl wears the same dress as you to formal, passive-aggressive. She said: “I rely on Vogue to set the standard, not follow what everyone else is doing. So I have been disappointed that fashion magazines have been supporting this trend of social media stars to set our style standards.” Most people translated that to, “Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner aren’t supermodels.” That seems a little extreme, considering she could just be talking about the professional thirst traps on the Explore page.
The internet’s teenage girl population obvi freaked out, because god forbid anybody challenge the Queens of Instagram. So Rebecca backpedaled faster than Rita Ora being identified as “Becky with the good hair” and Tweeted that she was misquoted. If you ask me, the whole thing hasn’t been blown far enough out of proportion. Like, we’re all just going to let a has-been criticize two 20-year-old, successful millionaires, but I can’t go to the liquor store without the cashier judging me? Explain to me how that’s fair.
Regardless of who she was talking about, my favorite quote in the interview is: “No one has proven that numbers of followers translates to revenue,” which is just dead wrong because the Kardashians have literally proven that. Like, they get paid millions of dollars to post shit about FitTea and bullshit corsets because they have so many followers.
Try again, Rebecca.
