Gisele Bundchen Rejected 42 Times at Start of Career

Gisele Bundchen catches a flight at the airport on Wednesday (June 6) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 31-year-old supermodel, reportedly pregnant with her second child, was in her home country for Green Nation Fest and the Top Cufa Contest, which searches for new modeling talent in Brazil’s shantytowns.

“I feel privileged to be the sponsor of this project,” Gisele said, adding that she was rejected by 42 agents at the start of her career when she was 17. “I was finally taken [in] on the 43rd try.”

“You have to know your good side for photos,” she advised the aspiring models and contestant, “to feel comfortable in your own skin to be beautiful and to have a lot of perseverance.”
