Gisele Bundchen lands the July 2014 issue of Elle Canada. The Brazilian supermodel opens up about her body (again) and about the World Cup which will be held in her homeland this year.
On her relationship with her body: “The body is a temple. I enjoy moving. I don’t play much volleyball anymore, but I ride horses, surf and play beach tennis. I play wherever I am. Kung fu, boxing, yoga, Pilates…. It makes me feel alive. If I don’t move my body, I don’t feel good.”
On career longevity: “People trust me when they book me for a job. The minimum I give them is 100 percent. I’ve never been late for a job, I respect people and I want to be at my best every time: to show up and deliver. When I lose that, I’ll stop. I’ve done a million photos in my life, and my excitement for it remains intact.”
On attending the World Cup in Brazil: “Well, I would like to score a goal myself. [Laughs] I’m very proud that I was born in Brazil. I love the spirit of the Brazilian people. There’s something magical about it. There’s a viva—there is joy. There is warmth—a sense of welcome. When I first came to America, I was hugging and kissing everyone and people were shocked. Soccer supporters will come from different parts of the world, and they will experience that side of Brazilian life—all that beauty and energy.”
Below is a picture she posted on her Instagram page recently. I suppose if I had her body, I wouldn’t shut up about it either.
