Cindy Crawford admits her body isn't quite perfect at 43.

"I have cellulite," she says while laughing in the September issue of Redbook. "I admit it. But sometimes I just say, 'Screw it, I am going to wear a bikini.'"

The model -- who is launching her JC Penney home collection next month -- says she cuts herself a little slack.

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

See stars in the skimpiest bikinis of all time.

"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 had two kids -- Presley, 10, and Kaia, 7, with Rande Gerber -- since her catwalk days.

"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 says. "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."
