Supermodel Cindy Crawford refuses to look back on her critically-panned acting debut in Fair Game with regret - because it taught her she wasn't cut out for the movie industry.
Crawford admits her experience with director Andrew Sipes, while making the 1995 action thriller opposite William Baldwin, was a disaster.
In a candid recent interview with Oprah Winfrey for her Master Class series, the 47-year-old said, "I knew a producer named Joel Silver and he asked me to do a movie for him and I was like, 'Joel, I'm not an actress, I don't want to be an actress.' And he was like, 'I really want you to do this movie, you're doing this movie.' And I kept saying, 'No, no, no,' and he kept saying, 'How much more money?' And at a certain point I was like, 'I'm an idiot if I don't do it'.
"I should have been more focused on who the director was than what kind of (movie) trailer I got because... after the third week he stopped speaking to anyone on the set. It was difficult because here I am, I'm not an actress, and literally (I) would get zero direction. It wasn't the worst movie ever made, I've certainly seen worse, but it just didn't do well and people weren't that impressed with my performance."
However, the beauty is proud she took the career risk, insisting, "My reasoning for doing Fair Game was... I was like, 'Wow, I'm only 28, if I stop taking chances now, if I stop doing new things now because I'm afraid to fail, what am I gonna do for the next 20 years?' That was really the main reason that I said yes; it was like, 'I have to still put myself in positions where I could fail'."
