    It's not always cool for a celeb to talk about a struggle or problem with alcohol, but Chrissy Teigen proved again there's no topic too taboo for her.

    During a frank interview with Cosmopolitan, Teigen opened up about her drinking habits, admitting she didn't like how she was behaving.

    Last month Teigen and husband John Legend, who have been on a summer full of vacations with daughter Luna Legend, went to a wellness retreat in Bali and that's when the social media superstar had a serious revelation about how much alcohol she was consuming.

    "I was, point blank, just drinking too much," she confessed. "I got used to being in hair and makeup and having a glass of wine. Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show. And then a bunch at the awards show. And then I felt bad for making kind of an ass of myself to people that I really respected. And that feeling, there's just nothing like that. You feel horrible. It's not a good look for me, for John, for anybody."

    She said it's particularly hard not to drink in Los Angeles when alcohol comes with the A-list lifestyle and that she fears she won't be able to do it cold turkey.

    She told the mag, "Imagine everything we have...Everything is there, always. I don't know how to go to an awards show and not drink."

    The mom of one also admitted that she "can't have just one drink" and that there's a history of alcohol abuse in her family, she said, and she's the type of person who "can't just have one drink."

    In a separate interview with "Today," Teigen also shared her thoughts about parenting criticism as well. Now as a mom, the model gets shamed for her parenting style.

    "It gets to me every time," Teigen told "Today" about the nasty comments she sees on social media. "I feel like pregnancy is the time for them to warm you up to the shaming that’s about to come because they really go in on you."

    The cookbook author offered a recent example: when she posted a photo of 1-year-old daughter Luna wearing jelly shoes. “She’s obsessed with jelly shoes and every time I put them on her, I get a million people saying, ‘Those have chemicals in them,’” she revealed. "It’s just so much. I don’t want to have to look at a photo for 20 minutes before I post it."
