Gisele Caroline Bundchen is the highest paid supermodel in the world, although she has denied making overly exorbitant sums in an interview.
She stands 5’11’’ tall, has blue eyes, dark blond hair and perfect measurements. Although like most top models she is very thin, she has been praised as putting feminine curves back into fashion. While on the Ellen DeGeneres Show the beauty recounted that she follows no special diet, even succumbing to fries on a regular basis. To PETA’s (the animal rights organization) dismay, the young woman has always maintained her love of meat and sometimes even advertized fur.
She was discovered at age 14, in her home country Brazil, although her distant ancestry is German. While she previously dated Leonardo Dicaprio, in 2009 she married footballer Tom Brady, and later in the year gave birth to a baby boy named Benjamin. Her husband has another son from a previous marriage, a previous marriage that apparently ended because of Gisele, bringing many negative comments on her for being a home wrecker (similar to the story concerning Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, only worse since there was a child involved).
Gisele’s personal life, although kept as private as possible, has gotten her into trouble on at least one other occasion. While nursing her son she proclaimed that there should be a global law regulating such behavior. Even though she later took to her Twitter to explain her statement by stating that she was only caring about what is best for her newborn and meant to leave any regulations alone, the damage was done.
Many fans were disgusted and lost their previous admiration for the star. Nonetheless, she remains one of the richest and most famous supermodels. She has been rumored to have a rivals’ feud with the model whose legs got her a Guinness World record, another Brazilian model of German origin, Ana Hickman.
On the friendly side, Gisele is said to get along well with Karolina Kurkova, an international model from Czech Republic, who replaced the American model, actress (The Fifth Element) and musician Milla Jovovich, as the Mercedes Benz ads girl.
