She’s the supreme ruler of food Twitter. She’s the fast food loving, avocado-swimsuit wearing, cookbook writing powerhouse that has basically taken over the internet and won our hearts in the process. She’s Chrissy Teigen. Her love of McDonald’s is already well known, but now the Sport’s Illustrated model has once again teamed up with the fast food chain to bring you an awards season commercial, which takes place at an a nondescript awards ceremony where the audience is in need of a snack during the (often overly long) proceedings. Teigen knows the solution: the McDonald’s $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu. To celebrate the release of the commercial—which will air during the Academy Awards—Teigen chatted with Food & Wine about her favorite McDonald’s meal, the menu she’d love to curate, where she eats after award shows.
What’s your favorite item on the McDonald’s dollar menu?
“There’s nothing like a McDonald’s Dr. Pepper. Even with breakfast. I used to do the Minute Maid orange juice thing, now I’m just like, screw it. It is my true pregnancy vice. There are so many things that are taken away from us. It’s my dessert for everything.
Nothing reheats better than a McDonald’s cheeseburger. I put it in for 35 seconds, still in the paper, and it comes out like a soft, delicious, warm pillow. It’s perfect. I swear, anytime I order them, I get four at a time and keep them in the fridge and then just heat them up, and it is truly the perfect snack. I get it with hot mustard because hot mustard is my favorite McDonald’s dipping sauce.” Read More Food & Wine Interview
Celebrity couple John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are joining the likes of Oprah Winfrey and George and Amal Clooney in supporting survivors of the Parkland, Florida, high school shooting. The Blast reported that the singer and his cookbook author and TV personality wife donated $25,000 to March for Our Lives, the group started by some survivors of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
“We support the students,” Legend told The Associated Press on February 27, 2018. “We’re proud of the students. We’ve already sent them money. We sent them $25,000 to help with whatever costs they have for organizing, and we believe that our gun culture needs to change in America.”
“We stand out among other major countries in the world when it comes to these types of massacres, but also in the everyday gun violence that people have to deal with,” Legend told The AP. “I don’t think that we should accept that as normal. I think we’ve decided that everyone having unfettered access to guns is more important than all of us being safe, and I think we need to reshape that balance a bit so that we’re all more safe. I’m glad these kids from Parkland are saying, ‘Enough is enough,’ and we support them,” John said.
