The 42-year-old supermodel star has stood at the top of her field ever since the late 1990s, but Gisele is keen on trying novel stuff, such as constructing a tiny solar-powered residence within a mountain range to develop the whole of her meals and possibly attempting to open a wellness program, since she believes modeling no longer reflects her. 

Backing Out Of Her Career

Gisele Bundchen has left the modeling industry as she compares modeling to "being an actress in a silent movie." Ever since the late 1990s, runway sensation has stood at the pinnacle of the business.

The model is now enthusiastic to try different projects, such as creating a little solar-powered cottage in the hills so she can produce all of her meals and even start a care facility because she thinks that her career does not fulfill her happiness.

She remarked in an appearance for Vanity Fair magazine, “I want to do things that I believe are an extension of me. Being a model is not an extension of me”

A Useless Character

In another statement, she was caught saying how she wanted to do more than just be a silent character. She stated, “It’s being an actress in a silent movie. I don’t want to be a character in anybody else’s movie. And when I do that, it doesn’t feel as comfortable for me anymore.”

Not An Official Retirement

Gisele is still getting requests to perform in Paris runway events. And, even though she's not engaged at the time, she would never openly announce that she is no longer a supermodel since she has no idea what lies ahead.

Never Say Never

Gisele is a realist and accepts that things change, whether for good or bad. She said, “I never say never, because the only thing in life I am certain of is change.”

The Love Life

The Brazilian supermodel and her ex-spouse Tom Brady divorced in October 2022, and while they are not now in a relationship, Gisele insists she remains Tom's greatest fan.

Broken But Happy Family

Although Gisele Bundchen is no longer married to Tom Brandy, they both found closure and are now on good terms. They have two adorable kids, Vivan who is just 10, and Benjamin who is now 13 years old.

A Supportive Ex-Wife

Gisele explained the relationship dynamics, “I have always cheered for him, and I would continue forever. If there's one person I want to be the happiest in the world, it's him, believe me.”

Reason For Divorce

Gisele - who described their divorce as "like a death and a rebirth" - said that the cause for their breakup after 13 years of being married was far more simple, stating that the couple just "grew apart" and decided they needed "different things."

More Than Just Black And White

She explained how marriages work and how love is not just enough to make it through. She stated, “What’s been said is one piece of a much bigger puzzle. It’s not so black and white.”

The Love Story Beginning

Gisele and Brady's love life was absolutely beautiful and their divorce was heartbreaking news for the fans. Brady was 29 years old while Bundchen was just 26 years old when they fell in love. 

Efforts In Waste

Bundchen tried saving her marriage and did everything she could to hold the rope together, but sometimes it just doesn’t work out.

The Twist Of Her Life


Giselle continued saying, “It’s tough because you imagine your life was going to be a certain way, and you did everything you could, you know?”

Every girl hears fairy tales when she’s young and prays to live them once. Gisele said, “I believed in fairy tales when I was a kid. I think it’s beautiful to believe in that. I mean, I’m so grateful I did.”

The Early Years Of Modeling

Gisele Bündchen talked about the chronic nervousness and terrible panic episodes that haunted her professional years — and the lifestyle modifications she took to start feeling better.

The Worst Start To The Industry

The model admitted, “I was starting my day with a mocha Frappuccino with whipped cream and three cigarettes, then drinking a bottle of wine every night. Imagine what that was doing to my mind.”
