Heidi Klum

 Q&A from the Fans
TV Guide Online: Welcome! Tonight's chat is with Victoria's Secret model Heidi Klum. Thanks for joining us tonight Heidi.

Heidi Klum: Hello, everybody out there all over the world!

Hutchinson_98: Have you accomplished any of your goals in life yet?

Klum: Yes. Most important thing, I've found my husband. My best friend in the whole world. Being a Victoria's Secret model, which was always my dream. Getting on the cover of Sports Illustrated, magazines like Cosmopolitan, Glamour, GQ, German Vogue and so on.... A little acting debut in Spin City, with Michael J. Fox, which opened up a whole new door for me.

TV Guide Online: What haven't you accomplished yet?

Klum: That's a good one! There's many more things I want to do. I am interested in movies. But I also want to have a family with children one day, which is very important to me.

Maverick3_10: As a result of your appearances on Spin City, do plan to expand your acting career, or are you primarily focused on modeling?

Klum: My main focus is modeling. But I'm going to do three more episodes for Spin City starting in March. And I had offers for movies, but it still hasn't been the right one yet. But I'd love to do one.

WARRIOR_G: Do you think you will ever want kids, or do you have any currently?

Klum: I definitely want to have children. I grew up in a big family with a lot of kids around, and I definitely want to have children as well.
ashlyn_s: How do you stay in shape?

Klum: LOL! Always that question! The main thing is healthy eating, exercise, which I do for special events, like if it's Sports Illustrated, or the swim suit catalogue for Victoria's Secret, or my own calendar that I did for the year 2000. I go and train with a personal trainer. But I think the main thing is all in what you eat.

NYgal00: Heidi, how little do you eat a day?

Klum: I actually eat a lot. I just eat the right things. For example, for breakfast a little fruit. I love oatmeal with, like, fruit in it, berries or bananas, you have to get creative with it! You can actually make it taste good! For lunch, big salad with chicken or pasta. For dinner, I do a lot of stir-fried in the wok, with cabbage, all different vegetables, rice.
If you eat a big lunch and breakfast and a medium dinner, you shouldn't have to eat all the munchy stuff in between and you should be fine. People always starve themselves, and then they get hungry, and then they eat the wrong things, like chips or cookies or whatever they can grab. You can grab, just eat healthy. Alcohol is not good either.

jmungerscat: How much do you weigh? You look pretty thin. You need some doughnuts and, like, meatloaf and stuff.

Klum: LOL! I think 127 or something, is that right? And do that stuff too - sometimes. You have to treat yourself every once in a while, get to the fun stuff!

airborne11c: How tall are you?

Klum: I'm 5' 9 1/2".

CoolGuy650: Do guys try to impress you a lot?

Klum: Not really. I find actually that most guys are intimidated. And I don't understand why, because I don't think I'm a very cold person.

jmiranda54: A lot of girls are uncomfortable with themselves. How do you manage to keep so confident?

Klum: LOL! Well, people always think that models are very comfortable with themselves, very open and have no problems with anything. But there are times when I'm intimidated by walking into a room with a lot of people I don't know. Or I go somewhere where I'm not wearing the right outfit. Or I have a big pimple I can't hide! So everyone has that problem, models have that problem, too.

ohbehave42: Hi. Adam here... are models generally supportive of each other and friendly or is there a lot of competition and hostility?

Klum: I have to say that there are a lot of models that I work with that are very good friends of mine. And that it's sometimes like a little family. Because you start to repeat and work with the same people over again. And that's very nice. For example, like Tyra and Rebecca Stamos. Laticia Casta.

rredheart: How difficult is it to find a man who treats you for who you are and isn't swayed by your incredibly beautiful looks?

Klum: I met my husband through a friend of mine. And at the time we met, I wasn't really yet in the public eye. So he met me during the early stages of my career. So it was maybe easier, less pressure.

WildFlame99: What kind of activities do you enjoy in your spare time?

Klum: I love painting. I love Rollerblading in the park. I love going to movies. I love cooking. A lot. Going to the flea markets. And really, seeing my friends.

WildFlame99: What was it like before you became a model?

Klum: Well, I was going to school in Germany. And in my free time I was dancing. I danced for 15 years of my life. Which was my love and my passion.

latika_2: What was the best advice anyone gave you on modeling or life in general?

Klum: Modeling is a great job to be in. You travel the world. You stay in one of the most fantastic places in the world. It is not always as glamorous as it looks, it's a lot of hard work, too, but it's a lot of fun at the same time. But all the money in the world cannot make you happy either, so there has to be a balance. But I think the most important thing is to find the love of your life and have fun in love. And enjoy and appreciate what comes to you.

directly2u: How many days a week do you work?

Klum: A LOT!!!! Sometimes I have to fight for my weekends.

goodboy145: Do you get free clothes from the companies you model for?

Klum: People always ask me that. Very rarely can you keep the clothes.

radiohead_skier: Is it true that nobody actually knows who designs Victoria's Secret clothing?

Klum: Exactly - it's a secret. And it's Victoria's secret, isn't it?

latika_2: For your many photo shoots, is it a lot of fun to travel to different parts of the world?

Klum: It's a lot of fun - once you get there. Sitting in a plane going to Australia, for example, for 20 hours, is not so much fun. But to be able to see these places is amazing.

stoikomullet: Where is the most exciting place that you have traveled?

Klum: Hong Kong. The Maldives. Australia. Mexico. Brazil. Greece. Turkey. That's enough.

WildFlame99: Who's your current favorite musical artist? or what kinds of music do you enjoy?

Klum: Mixed things. Cafe Del Mar. God, I have so many CDs. Acid jazz. Or Randy Crawford, Michael Franks, Incognito, Propellerheads. It's a mix.

DEDQUIST: What's the wildest thing that happened on a Victoria's Secret shoot?

Klum: It wasn't on a Victoria's Secret shoot, but when I was hosting a show for E, Wild On in Belize, I swam with 20 sharks.

Player_Hot: Why isn't the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show broadcast on TV?

Klum: Don't ask me. It is in Times Square. It's going to be live in Times Square, and it's going to be live on a webcast. And it's tomorrow, at http://www.victoriassecret.com Which is great, so all my friends and family in Germany can watch it too. And all of you out there too!

KurtCobain_41: Do you have a web page (like www.Heidiklum.com)?

Klum: There might be one in the future, but I like the Heidi Klum Extravaganza, http://www.fifty-five.com it is the best site in German

paco8888888822: Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?

Klum: Thanks for the compliment, but I actually have two horns coming out of my head! Just joking!

bo_echo: How many hours does it take to shoot the photos on those ads?

Klum: We start early in the morning with hair and makeup. It depends what time of the year it is. In the summertime we start at 5:30 in the morning. And you're in hair and makeup for, like, an hour and a half. Then you shoot till 11, when it's on location. You have lunch till 2. Then you redo hair and makeup again. And you shoot until the sun goes down. So it's pretty much all day.

Hutchinson_98: Who was the best model to work with and why?

Klum: Rebecca Romain Stamos. Because she's always been very supportive to me and a good friend from an early age.

Fjord24: What's your favorite color?

Klum: Green.

shytoy26: Do you want to hire a guy to do your laundry and cook you meals?

Klum: NO! I love cooking, I do it myself!

hegeman: What school did you go to for modeling??

Klum: A school? I never went to a modeling school, and I don't suggest to anybody that they go to a modeling school. You should go with a good agency, and then you'll learn as time goes by.
pherngully: You seem intelligent... How far did you go in your education?

Klum: I went to school for 13 years in Germany. And I finished my degree to go to study. So if I want to still study, I can.

Alcibiaedes: What models are you friendly with?

Klum: I work with Stephanie Seymour a lot, with Karen Mulder.

muddler88: It was wonderful to see you as the '98 Sports Illustrated cover girl. What were your feelings about being able to do that?

Klum: Well, I was already so happy being chosen to do the issue itself, that when I got on the cover, it was even more of a surprise and even more amazing to me. And I'm still jumping up the walls about it. It has changed my career 100 percent.

pini0n_2: How do you feel about the trend in "fashion" for ultrathin models?

Klum: I represent more the healthy, happy, curvy, strong woman. And that sounds much healthier to me than being 80 pounds and skinny as a bean. A woman is a woman!

Starlight_helper: Do you think, as a model, that they put too much emphasis on models having pretty close to perfect bodies?

Klum: There's all different types of models, and there're also plus models as well. But the majority is skinny. And it's controlled by the fashion industry.

Klutch_20: What is your next project in television or movies?

Klum: I'm going to do more episodes for Spin City with Michael J. Fox starting in March. Then I'm hosting the TNT special for Sports Illustrated, which is going to be at 8 pm/ET, on TNT on Feb. 10, which I think is going to be a lot of fun to watch.

rredheart: I'm in Seattle. Are you going to visit anytime soon?

Klum: I never had a booking there! But you never know!
takeanote: So, do you get really nervous before you go out on stage for a show??

Klum: Yes, I do. Because I'm on the runway with some of the best models in the industry. So to get back to being intimidated, yes, you get intimidated when you're on the runway with Naomi Campbell, who is the best runway model in the world. So yes, I get intimidated. Especially at the Victoria's Secret show when a gazillion people are watching.

HBK6694: Ms. Klum, do you have a fan club, and if so, how do I join?

Klum: Most of my fan mail gets sent to my agency, Elite.

ohbehave42: Hi, Adam here... Does an "ordinary guy" actually have a shot with a Victoria's Secret model? :)

Klum: Absolutely. All depends on what is on the inside, and not what they do. And not always how they look either.

huggies63: What would be your perfect date?

Klum: I think the person should cook himself - there's a little bit more effort involved than just taking you out to dinner and letting someone else do the work. And building some ambiance with flowers and nice music. But the cooking part is definitely nice, even if the person isn't a good cook. It's a nice effort.

jakelvis: How much longer will you stay in modeling?

Klum: Depends on how good the wrinkling cream is working!

durham27: Are you a baseball fan? What are your favorite sports?

Klum: I like basketball, and I've been to three games, which is so much more fun than seeing it on TV, I think. The Knicks in Madison Square Garden!

jordanmatthewsjets: What is the most expensive outfit you have ever worn?

Klum: I don't think it was the outfit, it was more the Harry Winston jewelry I was wearing, for a charity. I don't remember how much it was. I also wore a tiara from Cartier on their 150th anniversary at the Metropolitan Museum, where I felt like a princess. And I had a bodyguard that followed me everywhere.

Vodkaking431: What do you think of your article in GQ?

Klum: I thought it was written very nicely. And I loved the pictures, which a good friend of mine shot, Robert Erdman.

TAYO777: How much time do you typically spend traveling in a year?

Klum: That's a hard one. I don't know. Sometimes I travel twice a week by plane. And I've been overseas to Bali, the Maldives, Hong Kong, Australia, which are all major long flights, all in one year. And then I go to Europe a lot.

snowden_of_yesteryear: Schoenen Guten Abend!! I'm an intermediate student of German. Any important or interesting sayings I should know?

Klum: Hallo, meine lieben freunde in Deutschland! Esgruesst euch euere Heide. Which means, Hello, all my friends in Germany. Best wishes, Heidi.

Shilonious: Would you ever consider divorce in order to marry me?

Klum: No! I'm very happy!

DraculazBlood: What's the hardest thing about being a Victoria's Secret model?

Klum: There's nothing really hard about it. It's a great client of mine, and it's like a family. It's like working with your family. They became all good friends of mine. I shoot with them, like, one week out of every month, so you start to get to know them very well.

ShrtythePmp: What is the deal with the Victoria's Secret online fashion show?

Klum: It's the first time that people all over the world can watch the Victoria's Secret show live. It' s like they have a ticket to the show, basically. It starts tomorrow night, I think at 7 pm. And it's at http://www.victoriassecret.com.

TV Guide Online: Thanks for joining us this evening. We had lots of fun. Good luck with your modeling career, your home life, and your future projects.

Klum: I had a great time chatting with all of you out there. It's been a lot fun! And as I've been told, there have been over 9,000 questions, and I'm feeling very, very flattered. Thank you very much! Love, Heidi.
