Gigi Hadid Talks Getting Starstruck, Cooking With BF Zayn Malik & More For ‘W Magazine’

Gigi Hadid is sporting a choppy platinum ‘do for the cover of W Magazine, and we can’t even recognize her!

The model talks with the mag about everything from being starstruck when meeting Kobe Bryant, to her favorite family holiday memories, and her irrational fears, plus cooking for her BF Zayn Malik.

Ch-ch-check out the stunning supermodel’s cover, even though we can barely tell it’s her, (below):

The model reveals she’s been a fan of Kobe Bryant for years, even dressing up as a super fan on her 13th birthday at a Laker’s game, complete with a Kobe uniform, yellow braces, and purple/yellow wig, so when she had the chance to meet him at a Taylor Swift concert, her pal encouraged them to meet:

“Taylor was like, ‘Go over. Say hi,’ And I couldn’t. Kobe Bryant is one of the only people who make me starstruck.”

Gigi loves to cook (remember when she wowed Gordon Ramsey on MasterChef?), so obviously her favorite holiday memories have to do with family and food:

“Being in the kitchen cooking with my family. We all like to prepare a different dish, and I always do a crazy dessert buffet where I make trains out of candy and little snowman cupcakes.”

And that love of cooking has carried over into her relationship with BF Zayn Malik, too:

“My favorite thing with cooking is to always try to make something new. I will ask my boyfriend Zayn Malik, “What do you want today?” and I’m pretty good at pulling it off. On my days off, cooking is something that keeps my mind going without having to think of too many serious things.”

But that’s not her only secret skill:

“At the movies or on TV, I can always figure out the murderer. I studied criminal psychology in school, and people know that all my favorite TV shows are that kind of psychological puzzle, usually involving a murder.”

While she might want to be a profiler in her next life, she also gave up one way you can definitely freak her out:

“I don’t like getting out of the shower and for the toilet seat to be open. I’m like, I have water on me, and the toilet has water in it, and I just won’t shower with the toilet open. I guarantee now you’re going to look at the toilet and it’s going to make you feel weird if it’s open while you shower.”

Ew! She also seems to be freaked out by seeing herself on a billboard:

“When I know I’m on a billboard, I can’t even go near the block. I get hot sweats. I ask my friends to send pictures for me because I can’t go anywhere near it.”

We’ll take photos for you any day, Gigi!
