Heidi Klum talks handling fame, brushes off criticism about body confidence

Updated: Nov 29, 2016 14:33 IST

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 29 (ANI): From talking to her children about sex to facing critics who called her 'too curvy,' there seems to be no subject that scares off Heidi Klum.

In the December issue of Ocean Drive magazine, the 43-year-old supermodel mom said of her four kids, "They know how babies are conceived. I have never really been a huge fan of beating around the bush. I'm quite direct. I guess that's how people know me on television: I don't mince my words."

Recalling the early flack she received for her signature hourglass figure, the 'America's Got Talent' judge said, "That I'm too curvy. Too feminine. I got that a lot. That I should be skinnier. And that I'm not edgy enough and a little too happy half of the time."

"Everyone was always telling me maybe I should skip a meal or I should go on these [diet] pills," she revealed.

Fortunately, Klum let the words roll of her back as she climbed the ladder to success.

"I just always stuck to my guns and thought either they want me the way I am or this is not the right job for me," she told the magazine.

Still, the ability to juggle the fame with the flack was not born overnight.

"When you're a normal girl from a small town and no one really takes note of you, and then all of a sudden you're walking down a catwalk in your lingerie and on the cover of Sports Illustrated and all these people are turning their heads when you go into a restaurant and pointing their finger at you saying, 'She's not as pretty in person as she is in photos,' you get a little insecure," the German native said.

"You always get judged, so you have to learn how to handle that," she added. (ANI)
