We’ve heard of family bonding time, but family shower time? That’s a new one!
In a recent interview with Style magazine, Danish model Helena Christensen opens up about her past, her shyness, and her family.
“I grew up in a very emotional household, in the sense that we expressed exactly how we felt proudly. We were always traveling, even when I was a child, always in some airport sitting on suitcases with my sister, leaning up against one another at 3am in Bangkok. Nothing was ever planned.
My mum would be sitting next to someone she’d just met on the train and the next thing we’d be traveling across the world to meet them. It was total togetherness. We even took family showers. It felt like we did a lot of things together. Was my upbringing normal? Maybe not?”
We've heard of maybe little sisters showering together or little brothers, maybe mom and daughter, and so on, but a whole family shower? Isn't that just…. awkward?
She goes on to add:
"I was shy as a child. My mother would send my to theater group to learn how to express myself more. When I was very little me and my sister were child models but I don’t even remember doing it. For some reason, it didn’t bother me. The shyness was more about people. I’d always be observing rather than involving myself. Very often now, if I’m with a group of people, I end up in the corner.”
