Gisele Bundchen Named UN Environmental Ambassador

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen is named the new UN Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme on Sunday (September 20) in New York City’s Washington Square Park.

The 29-year-old Brazilian beauty will help the program to “raise awareness and inspire action to protect the environment,” according to the organization.

“The environment has always been my passion,” Gisele said. “I grew up in a small town and I had the opportunity to live surrounded by nature….We must act now, so future generations have the same opportunity.”

The mommy-to-be is due in December, so she’ll be making the world a better place for her new baby with dad Tom Brady!

    LOL “the environment has always been my passion…besides being the highest paid supermodel on the planet”

  • John

    I think that she is beautiful. but there are other models that are way hotter than her.

  • Amy

    I guess Leo is still on her mind! :) Nah, I love her!

  • JLS

    The girl is ugly and her hubby lost today!

  • Pam

    Gorgeous! I’m so happy for her, she’s been doing a lot for environmental protection over the last few years, glad that she’ll get to do that on a larger scale now.
    Her bump is so cute…

  • mattchew

    Since she has stated a desire to have a large family, perhaps she should consider not having more than two children, as overpopulation is the single greatest threat to our quality of life.

  • Jessica

    As a brazilian I feel so proud of her…
    She is rich so sh can help so much more the environment

    We have to take care of our planet, we live here, right?

    beijos gisele!

  • Abbie

    This has to be an indecent joke!!!! The girl has always drove Lexus and Mercedes cars. And now she plays the mother Teresa of the environment . LOL!!!

    BTW, how can we tell she is pregnant? She is supposed to be due in December??? It is quite hilarious. She must be expecting a pea, or a bean… She is skinny as a rack.

  • JENNIFER

    She told a brazilian tv channel that her baby will born in december, but she don’t know if is a boy or a girl yet.

  • Nahla

    #6 how dumb of a comment is that. Damn, anybody has the right to have as many children as they want…..or at least as they can! I totally agree with #2John, she’s pretty but there are way hotter supermodels out there. She’s no Angelina Jolie but at least she cares and tries to do something for this ol’ Planet =) I don’t like her at all though lol. But I still wish them the best with the baby…she doesn’t look that heavy for someone who’s due in december! XD Well, I can’t say anything about that since I have no kids yet. But I thought she would be showing more right now…..

  • anna

    I love her she’s so sweet! congrats for the baby! good for her!

  • Kate

    ….AS SHE RIPS A FLOWER OFF TO SMELL

    kidding, good for her. maybe it’ll help more people get involved in going green

  • bella

    I am sorry is she actually pregnant . . .there is NO bump. the bump that is there looks like a food baby!

  • lola

    she is gorgeous! good for gisele beautiful inside and out.

    she looks like she is so sweet.

  • TRACY

    If she’s due in December, then she should be at least 5 months but from the looks of her stomach she looks like she ONLY 3 months pregnant. Maybe she’s having a pregnancy like Nicole Kidman. ASIDE FROM THAT I LOVE THAT SHE CARES ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT.

  • Pam

    @Abbie:

    She’s not playing Mother Teresa to the environment. She’s well known around the world and wants to use her voice to bring attention to something that she cares about and that is important for all of us. Why criticize that? She’s just trying to help out, she never claimed to be a saint or anything. Doing *something* is better than sitting around all day doing *nothing*.

  • Drake

    I think she has those good pregnancy genes like Nicole Kidman. lucky gisele. lol

  • anon

    Blah blah blah blah Gisele!

  • Layla

    @Pam: You pretty much summed up what I was going to say. I don’t know why people are complaining about her possibly overpopulating the world when she hasn’t even had one child yet. Save that stuff for the Duggars, who are on baby number 20 or whatever…

  • Jen

    She looks beautiful pregnant! Haters, you just have to RAnt about something, well, she’s having a baby with the MAn she loves & is married to, so GEt OVEr It!!!

    @dundies: typical jealously, u act like if she was born rich, she worked her way up, no reason to be jealous

    good thing of gisele 2 be doing, i dont know about you guys but she seems to have that pregnancy glow, makes her look better =]

  • Gisele is a liar!

    “The environment has always been my passion,”

    She has worked for Blackglama, a fur company, and now she’s an environmentalist? Liar. Fake b*tch!

    And she’s such a pretender she had all the pictures from the Blackglama campaign removed from her official website.

  • viv

    people are so critical. here’s a woman who comes from a humble family and is using her success to actually do something good for the world that we live in yet so many are quick to tear her down. unbelievable.

  • Blah blah blah

    Comes from a humble family my a$$!

  • Deeana

    A great way to help the environment would be if she managed to disappear from the planet.

  • paige

    @Gisele is a liar!: Sounds like you are confusing an environmentalist with an animal rights activist. What does a fur campaign have to do with anything you idiot?

  • Bonitto

    Good for Gigi and the Green Team, bug off haters.

  • LuckyL

    Lame

  • Pam

    @Blah blah blah:
    She comes from a small town called Horizontina in the south of Brazil and is one of 6 daughters. The whole reason she became a model at 14 was because she wanted to help her family out financially. Even when she came into the modeling world, she was told she wouldn’t succeed because she didn’t look like the typical model type. Not to mention that she had to go from her small hometown to NY at 16. But she worked hard and became successful.
    In just about every interview, she talks about how grateful she is to have everything she does because she knows that even though it was difficult for her, it was not as difficult as it is for many people in the world.
    So why are you all criticizing someone who had to work hard for what they have, truly appreciates what they have and tries to do something good with it?

  • truth

    She looks like a man.

  • truth

    ….and her hands are HUGE!!

  • pixy

    whatever, she’s still annoying. wow the environment, there’s an issue i’ve never heard of before.

  • Bonitto

    Who give a rata$$ if a she looks like a man #30 & 31, go get yourself educated about the environment and get out of your little box, you are an idiot.

  • loyal

    She is fabulous and lucky in love. Am very pleased she is doing something outside of herself. Makes her a 10 in my book.

  • groundcontrol

    I know nothing about this woman and I care even less but stop with the stupid comments about how she looks while she is pregnant. Every pregnant woman is different and sometimes each pregnancy for a woman can be different.
    .
    She is a very lean and giant of a woman. It is not surprising at all that she wouldn’t be showing much at five months. She may never show much.
    .
    I hope she takes her appointment seriously and works hard at this endeavor.

    @ amy

    Sorry Babyface Dicaprio is not in her mind.

    TOM IS THE LOVE OF HER LIFE. She told that every times and everyone

    Tom Brady has stated more than once that he is interested in politics after his football career is over (which after today’s game looks like it might be soon!) With the lack of morals being displayed by politicians these days, he and Gisele should fit right in, the way they carried on in public while Bridget was carrying his child. Gisele got this “appointment” because they are trying to rehab their images, he as a deadbeat daddy and she as a none -too-intelligent man-stealer who slept her way to the top of the modeling world, for when Brady does enter the world of politics. All it takes these days is money to be a politician, and they certainly have enough of that.

  • ney

    Good job Gisele, you are amazing

  • @Ellen

    @ellen: You clearly know nothing about football if you think one bad game = the demise of Brady’s career. I have no idea why you felt the need to bring up Bridget Whatsherface in a post about Gisele? Nobody cares about her Z-list @ss. Go have your pity party for her somewhere else. You must be a Jets fan lmao. Oh yeah, you’re an f*ckin idiot too! Congrats!

  • Pam

    @ellen:

    Wow, I was wondering why it was taking so long for someone to bring up the whole Bridget drama.
    Yes, Tom did say he was interested in politics a few years ago…since then I have heard him say that he wouldn’t want to pursue that. If he did decide to go that route though, I don’t think he would be completely unsuccessful- he’s a smart and likeable guy from everything I’ve heard people say about him.
    You’re talking about his morals and I’m sure you’re a saint? Everybody makes mistakes, what’s important is that he cares about his son and is a part of his life (please don’t go on a rant about how he doesn’t spend every day with him seeing as to how they’re on opposite ends of the country).

    How horrible of a guy in his twenties to have such ambition! He should have been getting drunk at strip clubs instead, right?

  • susan faltin

    Apparently Gisele did not go to see her husband play football today. What kind of wife is that?

  • sara33

    Good for Gisele, lending her name to the environment. She has the cutest baby bump too :)

  • jjj

    Apparently Tom Beady did not go to see his wife named UN Environmental Ambassador. What kind of husband is that?
