Twiggy: I hates selfies

Twiggy: I hates selfies

Twiggy hates selfies.

The 67-year-old model can't understand why people use their own cameras to take pictures of themselves and then post them online.

Asked what she'd get rid of from the world, she said: "The person who invented selfies. I hate the bloody things. I just don't get them."

And Twiggy feels embarrassed when people ask her to pose for selfies, especially when they're drunk.

She said: "I was at a black tie do and a very tipsy young lady asked if she could take a selfie with me in the loo.

"I declined and I found it very embarrassing. When the booze starts to flow, people can get very excitable."

The 60s icon is proud to have followed her dreams and thinks people should always be brave enough to do the things that excite them.

She told Grazia magazine: "Follow your dreams. I've met so many people in their fifties who say there was something they wanted to do but never did because they weren't brave enough.

"So I say do it, even if it doesn't work. At least you won't have any regrets."

At the end of a hard day, Twiggy likes to relax in the bath with a book, but her calming plan doesn't always go the way it should.

She said: "I was reading a book in the bath and was just at a really good bit when I dropped it in the water.

"I screamed and [my husband] Leigh came running in to see what had happened.

"It's very crinkly now but at least I got to the end of the book."
