Gisele Bundchen may be a glamorous supermodel right now but her life wasn’t always so good.
She says that she started out as a loner. “I never enjoyed partying much and rarely went out, so I wasn’t the most popular girl.”
“I had very few friends but the ones I had were so supportive and loyal. We were all young and from different parts of the world trying to make it in the big city. Since none of us had much money at the time we would meet at each other’s houses for dinner, order cheap food, and split the bill. They became my family away from home and to this day they are dear friends.”
She said that she mostly hung out with her sisters: fraternal twin Patricia, Raquel, Gabriela, Rafaela and Graziela.
“I love my sisters and we have always been supportive of each other,” Bündchen says. “Every other year, a different one of my sisters would come and spend time with me when they were on school break. It was so special to get to experience this time with them; we got to travel and have memorable times together.”
“When I did shows and designers would give me clothes, bags and shoes, I would always share with them,” she says. “We shared our entire life and I wasn’t stopping now.”
