The 20-year-old, who is currently dating Zayn Malik admits it helps when it comes to dealing with trolls.
Speaking to LOVE magazine, she reveals she relies on her friendship group and who she is dating.
“We cope with the trolls by having each other,” she said.
“It’s the same thing as dating someone within the industry rather than out of the industry. You only understand it when you’re literally experiencing it.”
Prior to dating Zayn, Gigi was in a relationship with Joe Jonas and Cody Simpson – all of whom are well known.
It is however Kendall Jenner who she turns to in her moment of need.
She revealed: “When people are really harsh? I live with my best friend from high school, but usually I’m going to call Kendall because Kendall’s the one who will always be like, ‘You don’t need that, just let it go.’
“And I know that if that’s working for her then it can work for me.”
And despite appearing to spend lots of timed with Zayn – Gigi thinks it’s important to prioritise female friendships.
She said: “I think that that’s the big one. It’s not just us, it’s a lot of women in the entertainment industry that are really supporting each other and showing that it’s less cool to be mean than it is to be nice.
“I think that that’s a very unique thing to our generation.”
