  • Quotes

    • Izabel Goulart: Diabetes is a disease that's had a deep impact on my family. My little brother has had type 1 diabetes since he was a baby and I have spent time learning about the disease and trying to bring attention to it so that one day soon we will reach a cure. I believe that the Diabetes Research Institute will find this cure.

    • Izabel Goulart: (Being asked what her guilty pleasure is) Sleep! I love to sleep late, and I rarely have the chance to.

    • Izabel Goulart: (Being asked what happiness is) Having time to spend with my family and my dog Peter Pan.

    • Izabel Goulart: For some reason everyone was wearing clothes and they put a bikini on me. They tied up the bikini and put the top part behind my back and I was like 'Guys that's not going to work out. I'm not feeling comfortable with that. It's going to fall.' They're like, 'No you're fine with this. Go girl, go!' And then I started walking down. I was really nervous, it was my first time and I felt my bikini top falling down. I felt as I was walking something was coming down slowly and I was like, 'Oh my God, oh my God, help me,' and when I completely got in front of the photographers it fell. I was just frozen and I saw everyone around me standing up clapping and laughing.

    • Izabel Goulart: The best part about modeling is that modeling has given me something to focus on. It's a great job for a young person. It has given me the opportunity to travel outside of Brazil and see the world. I have been meeting many interesting and talented people along the way.

    • Izabel Goulart: I believe that one of the saddest things in the world today is that some people don't have enough food to nourish themselves. It's the 21st century and that's really not acceptable, so if I could do something that would change that I would be really happy.
