Cindy Crawford confessed that these days she cringes when she hears the shutter of a camera lens while she's wearing a skimpy bikini.

"I have cellulite," she said. "I admit it, but sometimes I just say, 'Screw it; I am going to wear a bikini,"

In an interview with Redbook first reported by Usmagainze.com, the former super model and mother of two youngsters said she isn't as hard on herself about her looks as she used to be during her days strutting her stuff down the runway.

"I think I look good for my age," she said. "I am not 25. I am 43. That feels like a a big pressure, especially when the National Enquirer is dying to get a picture."

"I am so aware that I don't want to change the way I live because of that kind of attention. So you say, 'Screw it. I am wearing a bikini, and I am not putting on a cover-up.' You just brace yourself for a bad picture."

Crawford has two kids, Presley, 10, and Kaia, 7.

"People get excited that they're meeting the Cindy Crawford from the Playboy spread 13 years ago, and I am a mother of two now, she said. "I have to check in with myself. It's good to have an awareness of the outside pressure. I can't let it get to my core."

"I love my life."
