All right everyone, it's official: Heidi Klum is a nudist.
In an interview with Ocean Drive magazine, the 43-year-old supermodel talked about her nudist upbringing and said she enjoys going topless.
"I grew up going to nude beaches with my parents, so I’m a nudist," the German-born beauty admitted.
"I have no problems with nudity at all. I’m very free. When I go to the beach, it’s in a very remote place where there are not a lot of people, and I like to go topless," she continued.
And you could say Heidi agrees with British Vogue's Kathleen Baird-Murray who declared cleavage to be "over" in the December issue.
"I love a natural shape. I don’t love big push-up bras and boobs right under your neck," the "Project Runway" host said. "That was yesterday... my whole slogan, what I tell my design team, is always 'more boobs, less bra.'"
But the road to gaining confidence hasn't always been easy for Klum. She told Ocean Drive she has been criticized for her weight, saying people in the fashion industry have told her she's "too curvy," "too feminine," and that she should be thinner. Thankfully, Klum never listened.
"Everyone was always telling me maybe I should skip a meal or I should go on these [diet] pills. I just always stuck to my guns and thought either they want me the way I am or this is not the right job for me," she said.
"When you’re a normal girl from a small town and no one really takes note of you, and then all of a sudden you’re walking down a catwalk in your lingerie and on the cover of Sports Illustrated and all these people are turning their heads when you go into a restaurant and pointing their finger at you saying, 'She’s not as pretty in person as she is in photos,' you get a little insecure," Heidi admitted.
"You always get judged, so you have to learn how to handle that."
But at the end of the day, the Victoria's Secret alumnus thinks "everyone should do what they want to do."
"I feel comfortable and don’t care if someone sees my nipples necessarily — it’s OK to see the nipple! But not everyone feels comfortable with that."
You do you, Heidi!
