Quotable: Gisele Bundchen Has Baby, Sees Herself For The First Time

“I got to the studio and I felt like I was E.T. — whoa, what’s going on? Hair and makeup? I hadn’t looked at myself in a mirror for a month-and-a-half. I’d been in my house, in a cocoon with my kids, my husband, my dogs. Usually, as I walk through the door into that atmosphere, I already feel different. There’s a button that goes On and I’m On. And when I go On, there is almost no me; there is just a character who is doing all this. This time it wasn’t like that. I’ve been really inside with my husband and my baby, and everything is changed. But the client still deserves respect and professionalism, and I got a little bit concerned because I wasn’t feeling it. Makeup was done, hair was done, and I looked in the mirror and I still wasn’t seeing the person who’s a model. For the first time, I think I actually saw me — the inside — instead of the persona.”
