Supermodel Cindy Crawford has divulged a shocking truth about her father's perception of the modeling industry.

In a recent interview, Crawford shared that her father, Dan, believed that modeling was synonymous with prostitution.

Recalling her early days as a model, Crawford revealed that her parents even accompanied her to her first modeling appointment, unaware of the reality of the profession.

During an episode of the Apple TV+ show 'The Super Models,' Crawford expressed her initial ignorance about modeling, stating that she didn't even recognize it as a real job.

Growing up in DeKalb, Illinois, Crawford had no idea how she would transition from her small town to the glamorous world of magazines.

However, despite her parents' concerns, Crawford chose to pursue a modeling career.

Reflecting on her journey, she admitted to taking on a wide range of projects, including Vogue, Revlon, and even Playboy.

Many people questioned her choices, unable to comprehend why she would risk potentially damaging her reputation.

For Crawford, money wasn't the driving force; instead, she valued having creative control over her image.

She wanted to ensure that every image associated with her name was approved by her.

Crawford's path to success wasn't an easy one.

While attending Northwestern University after graduating high school as valedictorian, she decided to drop out after just one semester to pursue modeling wholeheartedly.

Her iconic status in the modeling world was solidified during the '90s and early 2000s.

Despite facing criticism and misconception, Crawford's determination and unwavering passion propelled her to prominence.
