Heidi Klum covers Allure Magazine May 2012 in what appears to be an unedited shot. That is, Klum denies having cosmetic surgery in her interview and then she poses without clothes to prove it. And it appears there’s no airbrushing of the natural lines on her face for the cover. Which goes to her point about prettiness: plastic surgery isn’t “pretty,” according to Klum. Especially not on one unnamed ingenue who hit the needle/ scalpel early and jacked her face about which Klum is not impressed.
On whether she will reconcile with Seal: ”I don’t know! Time will tell. I’m still in the eye of the storm now, and it’s a little bit crazy. But sometimes you need to be apart in order to figure things out.”
On her marriage to Seal: “You know, I wouldn’t change anything. If I had to go back in time and say, ‘I should have changed this or that…’ No. I don’t resent anything that ever happened. Things just turn out the way they turn out…. I’m still in the eye of the storm now, and it’s all a little bit crazy. But sometimes you have to be apart in order to figure it out.”
On her divorce from Seal: “It’s hard, just like for other couples. People go through our trash cans. It’s crazy. And you know, we have four kids; they have to go to school.’”
On her early days as a model: “I was too curvy and too busty and a little too short. And I was a little bit self-conscious about it. But I was by no means heavy, I just… well, you have hips and boobs, and that’s it. Haute couture, you don’t really see girls with big boobs. And I always wanted first to be a model. So I had to say, ‘OK, you’re going to find other things to do in this industry, or it’s maybe not my industry.’”
On the importance of gay men in her life: “They are like this kaleidoscope of interesting thoughts and opinions. They teach you so many things about men that are useful.”
On cosmetic surgery: “Ask me again when I’m 65, but…I’m proud to be able to say, in this day and age, I haven’t done anything. Everyone has a view of what’s pretty and what’s not pretty, and [surgery] just doesn’t look pretty to me. Especially when I see it on really young girls. I don’t want to name names, but it’s like, Wow, I remember you five years ago, looking to me so beautiful, and now it’s like… who is this person? And I know girls half my age who do it. What are they gonna do at 40 or 50, when the s-h-i-t really hits the fan?” – via Allure Magazine.
