Cheryl Tiegs has apologized for comments she made about Sports Illustrated model Ashley Graham.

Tiegs was asked by E! News how she felt about SI's cover featuring Graham.

"I don't like that we're talking about full-figured women because it's glamorizing them because your waist should be smaller than 35 [inches]," she responded last week.

"That's what Dr. Oz said, and I'm sticking to it. No, I don't think it's healthy. Her face is beautiful. Beautiful. But I don't think it's healthy in the long run."

Tiegs clarified her comments on Twitter and said she was sorry.

"My sincere apologies to everyone I have hurt," she wrote on Twitter. "I truly just want everyone to be healthy & happy."
