Gisele Bündchen Answers ‘Vogue’s’' 73 Questions With A Little Help From Her Family

We need to talk about that upcoming vacation ...

You may recognize supermodel Gisele Bündchen from the pages of your favorite fashion magazines or the runways shows of some of the biggest fashion designers. But Bündchen's résumé doesn't stop there and, in fact, she doesn't even see herself as a model. 

"I'm not a model," Gisele Bündchen tells Vogue magazine. "Modeling is a job that I do, a career that I've had. It allowed me to see the world, and I was well paid for it. But it never defined me."


Bündchen's work to date also includes many efforts to save the planet: she's planted trees in Nairobi's Kibera region, established a clean water initiative called Projeto Água Limpa, starred in National Geographic's documentary series Years of Living Dangerously to "explore the link between deforestation and climate change," become a Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations Environment Programme, been awarded Harvard Medical School's Global Environmental Citizen Award, and worked to raise awareness for sustainable fashion, among other things. 

Bündchen's interview with Vogue coincides with the publication's latest installment of its "73 Questions" video series, where the mother and activist took viewers on a tour of her home while answering all of Vogue's questions. 

First, Bündchen talks about her new book, her home in Boston, and the things Americans should try when visiting Brazil.

Bündchen also notes some of her career highlights: walking the opening ceremony at the 2016 Rio Olympics, walking around 500 runway shows, and landing somewhere between 1,000 and 2,000 magazine covers. 

Bündchen also introduces viewers to her daughter and her husband, NFL quarterback Tom Brady. "The love you receive and the love you feel," is the best thing about motherhood, she says. 

Later, Bündchen talks about what defines beauty: "Beauty is something that comes from the inside," she says. "It's just an energy that someone emanates."

After sharing the most romantic thing Brady has ever done for her, Bündchen also offers up some marriage advice: "Keep open and loving communication."

She also shares the biggest life lesson that modeling has taught her: "To never compare yourself to anyone. We are all unique."

Finally, Bündchen says she'd like to be remembered as someone who had "a positive impact on the world." We think she's certainly one of those people.
