I like stories like this one because it makes my female readers’ heads explode.
“Victoria’s Secret” supermodel Candice Swanepoel earns millions modeling for the lingerie giant, even earning a place on this year’s top ten Forbes list for the highest-paid supermodels. But it wasn’t so long ago that the 22-year-old considered herself far too unattractive for a career in front of the lens.
“For a very long time I was really, really skinny – I was like that for most of my life,” Swanepoel told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column at the Victoria’s Secret “What is Sexy?” launch in Los Angeles last week. “And it wasn’t until I was 17 that I started getting curves… I had braces, the whole lot. I was an ugly swan before.”
See ladies? You just don’t understand how difficult it was for her to rise up from ugliness to become a supermodel! She’s had a hard life, dontcha know?
