See John Legend evaluate Chrissy Teigen to Simone Biles in a cute clip
“Of course we Americans are so proud of Simone Biles,” enthused Legend. “She’s one of the greatest athletes we’ve ever seen in the Olympics, but she’s also faced a lot of challenges, so we wanted to address all of that in this film.”
The legend shows another key female figure in his life as his guiding light: Mrs. Chrissy Teigen. “I felt like I could empathize with Simone’s story because I was right next to my wife when she deals with online trolls,” explains Legend. “I feel like women get a lot more negativity online than men, and especially for female athletes who they face a lot, ‘Oh, are they hot or not?’ At the same time, they are concerned with ‘Are you really good at your sport?’ ”
Fortunately, Legend doesn’t hold back everywhere to defend himself against sexism. As for his father skills? Let’s just say they’re too cute even for Instagram!
