In 2018, the Cravings recipe book writer went down jaws when she disclosed the proper method to state, Teigen—which is meant to be articulated like Tie-Ghen, as well as not Tee-Ghen.
“It’s been 25 years. I’m tired of correcting people and I never correct people,” she claimed throughout a look on Live With Kelly as well as Ryan. “You know, on Twitter, I’m very outspoken and I love to correct people on there but as far as like… if someone does something wrong or calls me the wrong name, you can call me anything. I’ll respond to it.”
Another celebrity whose name individuals misunderstand? Charlize Theron. Despite being a house name, the Hollywood celebrity confessed that her surname is often claimed improperly.
