Gisele Bündchen: (on modeling) It's flattering people might think I am number one but I never set out to be famous. A model's life is not as glamorous as everybody thinks it is. It is a great business and we make a lot of money but it's not glamorous. You get up at 4am and you shoot in horrible conditions sometimes. There are highs and lows.
Gisele Bündchen: (on ex-boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio) Leo and I are still good friends. He's an amazing person and I love his family. I wish him the best.
Gisele Bündchen: When I was 14, my sister already had a boyfriend, and I hadn't even had a first kiss yet. She was always the hotter girl.
Gisele Bündchen: It's so stupid. People have this thing about models becoming actresses because Cameron Diaz was a model and so were Charlize Theron and Uma Thurman. I need a big new challenge in my life. I don't want to still be modeling at 30.
Gisele Bündchen: I was never a fashion person. I never carry the bag of the season. I consider modeling like acting: it's a job, pretend and then go home to your real life.
Gisele Bündchen: I can be whatever you want me to be. If you want me to be the sexy girl, I can do that. If you want me to be the weird girl, I can do that. And if you want me to be the classically beautiful girl, I can do that, too.
Gisele Bündchen:My father writes me a letter every year telling me everything I should get better at. He tells me things no one else can. I think about it all year.
Gisele: (On her early days as a model) I only had enough money to go to McDonald's.
Gisele Bundchen: "It's definitely like very chaotic backstage because there's so much going on and a tight space, and not only us, which is a lot of girls in the show, but there are also people like the hair, the makeup, which is a lot of people. And then, like, all the wings occupying someone's space." - Talking about the Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows
Gisele Bundchen: "It's so heavy… I was like, hopefully, no one kills me on this runway and tries to steal it from me," she said. "But it's pretty heavy. I mean, it was, like, almost heavier than me. No, I'm joking!" - When asked about a bra she was modeling.
Gisele Bundchen: "I had a bunch of security guards around me and when I was leaving this guy just took off his shirt and he was crying, he was a bit crazy, for sure. He was like, 'Look, I love you,' and he had me tattooed, like, my whole body on half of his chest. I was like, 'What is that?' I wasn't stopping to pay attention to it because I thought he was maybe a psycho or something... I got really scared. - What if he doesn't like me tomorrow... and he's got my whole body tattooed forever." - Talking about a fan who got an image of her tattooed on his chest.
Gisele Bundchen: "Sometimes when it's too hot, I just sleep in my underwear. If it's colder, I sleep in pajamas. I don't like to feel closed in. I like no pillows. I like very fluffy beds. I sleep on my stomach and sometimes on my side, but never on my back. Now, if I have my boyfriend with me, I kick him out of bed, because I move around a lot. I'm the worst person. I steal blankets."

Gisele Bundchen: "I was really there to support (DiCaprio). He's not just my boyfriend but he's an amazing actor. He's really talented and I was so proud of him. I figured I should go and support my man so I went there just for that reason. I don't think he was expecting to win. I think I was more upset because I thought he deserved it more than (Foxx). I was like, 'He did a better job than (Foxx)!'"
Gisele Bundchen: "He has to be taller than me, - I have a lot of qualities that I need, because I'm very needy... I just want an open, nice, sweet, loving, honest, funny guy. Basically, an impossible kinda man.". - Talking about her ideal man.
Gisele Bundchen: "The only thing is, I have dreams about food now... You should quit smoking if you're a smoker, because food tastes a lot better after you stop. I used to hate oysters because they're slimy and disgusting-looking. But then after I quit smoking I tasted one and I'm obsessed with them now. I wanna eat three dozen, five dozen..."
