Christy Turlington has opened up on her early career. The model says that when she first rose to stardom she was unexpectedly given the 'supermodel' title and she didn't quite identify with it. She admits that she never become the kind of person the media created for her and she continues to live a normal life which is probably quite different from what people believe she has:  ''I was a young woman who had been given this identity as a supermodel, but that was not my identity. It was like, wait a minute, before I did that job nobody treated me with kids gloves. It still feels sort of silly trying to justify how normal one's life is, but that's kind of what happens when you are in this profession, it creates something that really isn't all that. Or maybe it is for some people, but it certainly never has been for me.''

Shooting to fame as a model in the 80s, Christy admits there were some serial model daters who lurked around looking for young models to prey on, and she admits she even dated one for a long period of time. She feels grateful that she was never put in any horrible situations by men:  ''Oh god. I actually dated one for six years. A horrible guy! But I was lucky in that when I first came to New York I stayed with my agent and those predator types, luckily they weren't interested in me. I do remember them, though, on their motorcycles and always being backstage... like why were they backstage? Who had invited them there?''
