Millie Mackintosh on first meeting with Professor Green: 'It was so cringe!'
Thursday 04 October 2012
It came as a bit of a surprise when Hackney born rapper Professor Green took Made In Chelsea's Millie Mackintosh as his date to this years Brit Awards, where they went public with their relationship. But it looks as though the couple still can't get over how much negative attention their relationship is still getting.
Talking to FHM, Millie said: “I think people are so quick to judge. They want to see people as ‘like that person’ and ‘that type of person’ and just assume that those two people couldn’t possibly be together. It’s ridiculous. I think if you click with someone it doesn’t matter where you’re from. It’s much deeper than that.”
Talking about how they met however, Millie admitted that it was all a bit 'cringe.'
FHM introduced the couple after the rapper saw Millie on the cover and asked the magazine to introduce them.
“When you guys emailed me saying, ‘Can Professor Green have your number?’ I was like, ‘What the f**k?! That’s so random, are you being serious?’ she said.
"But after you told me he was a really nice guy I agreed. Then an hour later I get a call from a number I didn’t know. It was Stephen. It was pretty cringe, he was like, ‘Hey, it’s Stephen. It’s Pro Green.’ And we chatted for, like, an hour and we went for dinner maybe two weeks later. The rest is history!”
Professor Green also spoke about his relationship with the Made in Chelsea beauty and the problems that arose in an interview in May. He said: 'It’s a weird thing when it’s made so public who you are dating.
'I find it really interesting how it’s spoken about because people are so quick to point out the difference in class but I’ve always believed that your class is dependent on how you treat people, not your financial situation.'
He added : 'If the difference were race people wouldn’t be so quick to point it out – it’s still prejudice isn’t it? I find it weird that’s it such a big thing.
'I mean all it comes down to is that we are just two people who get on, and that is what a relationship is – it shouldn’t matter where you come from, what colour you are or even what your sexual orientation is.'
Posing topless for the lads mag, Millie admitted tjay she's always been a bit of an 'exhibitionist'
'I’ve always found it fun to be a bit of an exhibitionist and get my kit off' she said.
'I am very comfortable naked.'
Continuing she said: 'Naturally at home I would just be wearing my favourite jumper over underwear if I was just slouching about anyway. I think that’s probably how girls look sexiest – when you are kind of vulnerable but comfortable.'
The December issue of FHM is on sale now (Thursday) and Millie stars in Made In Chelsea, on E4 this month.
