“There are some famous couples I look at and I’m like, ‘Ugh, we get it. Stop trying so hard, you’re so lame.’” Chrissy said during a recent interview with Vanity Fair, which she and husband John Legend, along with their two kids, three-year-old Luna and one-year-old Miles are on the cover. “I think people definitely think that about us.”
Chrissy and John met in 2007 when she landed a role in John’s Stereo music video. They started casually dating before things turned serious, fast.
“It got serious pretty quickly,” John revealed. “She just entertained the hell out of me, texting me. What people respond to in her tweets today was the same energy in those texts. I didn’t know that I wanted someone funny until I was actually with someone funny.”
At the time, John was regularly depicted in the media as a womaniser, although some publications speculated that he was in the closet. Chrissy found the stories about John fascinating and admits to reading “everything” about him.
“He was kind of known at the time for either being in the closet or a modelizer. I used to go on the websites and it was always either how I was his beard, or how he paid his past serious girlfriends, or how he was with some new model. Oh my God, I would read everything.”
Even though the flame is still going strong between them, Chrissy told Women’s Health last year that even they have lulls in their sex life.
“It doesn’t matter who you are — even if you’re a sexy R&B crooner or an ex-swimsuit model, you’re just tired,” she said.
Although she admitted she still gets weak at the knees when she hears John sing.
“It is funny, if he performs somewhere, and I go, I’m like, ‘Oh he’s sexy.’ We’ll probably have sex that night.”
