    Chrissy Teigen said in a DuJour interview that she lost a modeling gig for being "fat."

    Chrissy Teigen is known worldwide for her gorgeous face, hot body and candid personality. But can you believe she was once fired for being, um, overweight?

    In a new interview with DuJour, the 28-year-old Sports Illustrated model reveals a modeling gig that fell through because of her body size.

    "I actually was fired from a job," Teigen said in a behind-the-scenes video. "Forever 21, they booked me directly when I was much younger. I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo."

    She went on, "And they shoot that photo off to my agency, who then calls me as I'm sitting in the make-up chair, and they say, 'You need to leave right now. They just said that you are fat and you need to come get your measurements taken.' And I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much. Honestly, you're the worst."

    Hard to believe, right?!

    John Legend's other half also publicly bashed the clothing company on Twitter. She responded to a fan the other day, writing, "yep they suck and I hate them. RT @kemango87: saw something on E news that Forever 21 fired you for being fat?"

    Meanwhile, Teigen also revealed her favorite meal to the mag. "My mom's scalloped potatoes, layered with bacon and chunks of ham," she said. "And John's fried chicken is the best. It's crazy flavorful. He soaks it raw in Lawry's Seasoned Salt, onion powder and garlic salt in water."
