“I’m happy as I am,” she tells the Spanish edition of Vogue in its September issue. “Why is the whole world worked up about my getting married? I’m having a great time and I want to enjoy it.”
The 28-year-old Brazilian model – who appears on the magazine’s cover labeled “The Goddess” – also says she doesn’t consider herself a supermodel. ” ‘Super’ is for heroes and those who do extraordinary things,” she says.
Bündchen, for one, prefers ordinary things, like good food and friends. She says she has a large appetite – and that for her, a balanced diet is one that includes Iberian ham.
Yes, Onion, But No Vegetarian
“I eat meat, usually a bit with supper. I try to limit it to three times a week and preferably it’s chicken,” she says. “Other days I’ll have fish and vegetables. But I’m not obsessed with diet rules and nothing stops me from enjoying a calorific pastry. The question is balance. I like to eat, but I compensate with exercise.”
Part of her routine: surfing, Pilates, yoga, and dancing. She’s also at home in the kitchen, and often cooks for friends.
Says Bündchen, who started dating football-star Brady just before Christmas 2007: “My favorite thing to make is risotto. I throw in lots of lemon, pepper, and oil. Oh – and onion!”
