Heidi Klum strips down for Allure‘s May issue, which she covers, hitting newsstands April 24.
Here’s what the 38-year-old Project Runway host had to share:
On her early days as a model: “I was too curvy and too busty and a little too short,” she says of her early days as a model. “And I was a little bit self-conscious about it. But I was by no means heavy, I just—well, you have hips and boobs, and that’s it. Haute couture, you don’t really see girls with big boobs. And I always wanted first to be a model. So I had to say, ‘OK, you’re going to find other things to do in this industry, or it’s maybe not my industry.’”
On cosmetic surgery: “Ask me again when I’m 65, but … I’m proud to be able to say, in this day and age, I haven’t done anything. Everyone has a view of what’s pretty and what’s not pretty, and [surgery] just doesn’t look pretty to me. Especially when I see it on really young girls. I don’t want to name names, but it’s like, wow, I remember you five years ago, looking to me so beautiful, and now it’s like … who is this person? And I know girls half my age who do it. What are they gonna do at 40 or 50, when the s—- really hits the fan?”
On her ex, Seal: “You know, I wouldn’t change anything. If I had to go back in time and say, ‘I should have changed this or that…’ No. I don’t resent anything that ever happened. Things just turn out the way they turn out. I’m still in the eye of the storm now, and it’s all a little bit crazy. But sometimes you have to be apart in order to figure it out.”
