Hailey Baldwin’s pet peeve
Everyone has a pet peeve, and Hailey Baldwin says she can’t stand it when people “stand too close” to her.
The 19-year-old model – who is the daughter of Stephen Baldwin and Kennya Baldwin and niece of Alec Baldwin – finds it especially irritating when a person invades her personal space and decides it’s OK to get so close she can feel them breathe.
Asked what her “pet peeve” is by Hashtaglegend.com, the beauty revealed: “A pet peeve of mine is when people stand too close to you unnecessarily, like you know when someone’s so close to you that you hear them (breathes deeply) in your ear? And you’re just like, ‘Why are you so close to me?’ ”
Hailey – who was romantically linked to Justin Bieber at the beginning of the year – is close friends with fellow models Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner and she insists her “squad” are all just normal people with abnormal jobs.
She said: “I don’t think of famous friends as ‘famous friends’ they are just my ‘friends’ and the people I have relationships. It’s all very normal, we’re just normal humans at the end of the day, are jobs and our lifestyles may not be normal, but what we do together is what any other normal people our age are doing.”
Hailey realizes the modeling business has changed and a person’s social media presence now has a huge influence on their career.
But the blonde starlet – who has 5.2 million followers on Instagram and 643,000 on Twitter – enjoys interacting with her fans.
She said: “Social media plays a huge part in my life and a huge part in my career. In this day and age it has completely taken over. By being yourself is how you can be a role model, being real and letting people in on how you really are is how you become a role model.”
